You bring passion and dedication to your job and there's no telling what you could accomplish. Apple is looking to add a display/programmatic media expert to its Digital Media team to help support Apple Services (Apple Music, Apple Books, Apple News, Apple Podcasts, iCloud, TV+, Original Content and more). The Display/Programmatic Manager will work within the digital advertising team cross-functionally across both internal teams and external agency partners and vendors.

Key Qualifications

  • Knowledge of dynamic creative capabilities and data mapping for DCO
  • Functional understanding of ad serving
  • Strong communication skills and ability to clearly articulate media impact from a performance mindset

  • Broad vertical experience a plus (Apple Services LOBs span music, entertainment, gaming, finance etc.)


You will manage the channel end-to-end advising agency partners across strategy, planning, execution, measurement and reporting of display campaign activity inclusive of programmatic, network and direct publisher partnerships. A deep institutional and historical knowledge of the industry and partner landscape is a must as this role will constantly be evaluating new platforms, inventory sources and data/technology platforms available in-market to continually test and optimize campaigns across business lines.
