Senior Product Manager, Ad Products Remote US

Company: Mozilla

As the dominant business model of the open internet, digital advertising has enabled highly scalable and freely accessible web services and experiences to thrive. However, the model has also created many user-hostile incentives. Content producers too often prioritize engagement over information and advertisers and ad networks too often trade user information for incremental revenue.
 
We don't believe it has to be this way.
 
Firefox is defining and delivering a collection of services and advertising experiences that connect brands and users with products and services they love in a contextual and privacy-preserving way.
 
We are looking for a highly motivated, collaborative Sr. Advertising Product Manager to help shape internet advertising policy and build compelling, ethical services that deliver user value and create advertiser value. This role will be responsible for delivering core functionality of internal and external API’s and creating new functionality to support our advertising vision.
 
The ideal candidate is a proven technical product manager with experience managing technical advertising products and an exceptional grasp of the ad tech ecosystem. In addition, candidates will have outstanding communication, project management skills, entrepreneurial drive, all while taking pride in contributing to a broader mission and product vision.
