Sharethrough is disrupting the legacy digital advertising supply chain as the first ad exchange to auto-enhance every standard impression by rendering a higher-performing ad that dynamically fits into any placement on any site. Our technology and approach enables advertisers to see substantial campaign performance improvements and cost savings using the same standard video and display creative as well as the buying workflow they use with standard exchanges. The Sharethrough Exchange (STX) powers over 225 billion monthly impressions and is integrated with more than 30 of the world's largest demand side platforms, enabling buyers to efficiently achieve their marketing objectives at scale.

As a Senior UX Designer, you’ll be leading the UX for all Sharethrough products, in partnership with our current UX designer.  Key areas of focus will include our publisher platform where publishers login to gain insights, our buyer platform where buyers can control their ads and understand how to improve their campaigns, and the design of our innovative enhanced ads seen billions of times per month.  In particular, we’re launching many new CTV products this year and you’d be instrumental in the conception and design of those products. This is a Full-Stack UX role. You'll be responsible for conducting user interviews and research, problem-definition, ideating solutions with product managers and engineers, building high-fidelity & functional prototypes, designing the UX/UI, and working with engineers to implement your design.
