Sales Director, UK – Video Ad Tech
£70k + Uncapped OTE!

Excited to be working with a leading video platform for premium publishers, that with first to market video products, is creating a new generation of content experiences that are optimized for publisher success.

They are a well-funded organisation having recently been bought by a private equity company that is investing heavily in growing the business, both organically and through acquisitions.

Having built an impressive roster of premium publisher partners they are now looking to add top commercial talent to prospect and close video deals within the demand ecosystem.

Urban Digital is pleased to be partnered with this client on an exclusive basis, in the search for a new Sales Director, UK to join their UK team.

The role

In the role of Sales Director, UK you’ll report into the SVP, EMEA and be responsible for prospecting and closing deals with programmatic buyers ranging from Holding Company trading desks to independent agencies and advertisers who control video media budgets.

This is a hands-on, sales and business development role that will touch all cycles, from hunting to building innovative partner development and strategic programs throughout the process.

You will work closely with the Programmatic Operations team to support the growth of the accounts and day to day deal management and execution.

Core Responsibilities:

? Work with SVP, EMEA on strategic Holding Company/agency trading deals.

? Prospect and close video deals with advertisers, agencies, trading desks and DSPs who control programmatic budgets.

? Lead go-to-market and new business with the demand ecosystem in the UK

? Help build sales collateral and shape product marketing for the buy side

? Advise on commercial recommendations based on local market feedback

? Create commercial packages and client recommendations for programmatic campaigns


Extensive commercial experience in digital media and technology is a must have for this role, and experience in programmatic video would be preferable.

We are looking for a candidate with a track record in meeting and exceeding revenue targets, and for you to be fully up to speed with the complex and ever changing video ad-tech market, with knowledge of industry trends, terms and technology.

In terms of personality traits needed to really succeed in this role, you’ll need to be a charismatic, energetic, and resourceful person, with a proactive approach and a passion for success.

Whilst it is not essential, established relationships with tier 1 media agencies in the UK would be advantageous in the role. This hire is strategically key to the business, and with this in mind, we’re keen to talk to top talent ASAP.

Due to the high volume of applications we are not able to get back to every application (although we will try). If you don't hear from us within 5 working days, I’m afraid that your application has not been successful on this occasion.
