We are in the business of helping our sales and research partners to use vast amounts of consumer data and alternative TV viewing sources to change how traditional (Linear) TV advertising is packaged, sold, planned, delivered, optimized and measured. If you are looking to join a small agile team of disruptors looking to change how TV advertising works, look no further! NBCUniversal is looking for a passionate, results oriented and motivated self-starter to support development and innovation on our new Audience Targeting Platform. The Audience Targeting Platform (ATP) is NBCUniversal’s groundbreaking, companywide initiative to change the very nature of how Linear TV is bought and sold. This platform will allow us to move away from using demographic proxies for buying advertising on our programs to using consumer behavior based audience segments.
