This role requires serious ad ops and analytical chops to drive complex process improvements, work closely with cross-functional teams, and needs someone with a keen eye for product development. We feel we've got one of the best ad ops teams in the industry - they work hard and know how to play - so a leader who inspires, challenges, and encourages the career growth of others while fostering a collaborative and fun culture is crucial.

We are extremely entrepreneurial minded with a culture that is second to none (ping-pong anyone?). As a small division of Hearst Magazines, we offer the best of both worlds: a nimble, fast-paced organization coupled with the career development opportunities and perks of an established company in Hearst.
