We’re looking for a Senior Product Manager with adtech experience to lead and drive forward our Audience and First Party ID product. Our cookie free audience product is at the core of Ozone’s offering to our clients and drives key insights on what content the nation is reading.
The ideal candidate will have a passion for building products that drive business outcomes for our clients. Understanding product/market fit is key to the success of our scaling business and this role will need to take products from initial conception all the way through to delivery to our clients.

You will run a scrum team, own the product roadmap and be comfortable translating user requirements to UI, data and engineering teams.
