Advertising Solutions is a suite of products and tools to support our Advertising Business. It features booking, reporting and management of our inventory. Every month, 16M EUR worth of ads make their way through our products.
Our mission is to contribute to a functioning democracy by closing the gap between what citizens know and what they need to know about the world around them. We aim to offer trustworthy news founded on facts and insight in a world where information is becoming increasingly abundant and untrustworthy. It takes a strong and free press to do that, and at the very core of that is our financial independence. That’s our job.
To achieve this, we will deliver great products for booking and serving ads on the very best news destinations. We are in a marathon to stay relevant in a rapidly changing market, and it takes a dedicated and continuous investment in new technology to do it.

- Have an impact and grow as a leader.
- This is not your first management role - You have solid experience as an engineering leader. Everything from recruitment, performance enablement and tech strategy to organizational design come naturally to you.
- You have most likely been leading leaders before, but if you haven’t, you have worked in a role where you have had substantial responsibility that have made you ready for a new challenge.
- You thrive on learning. We have so many opportunities to learn here: From a world and an industry that is changing in a big way, from an organization that is evolving to respond to it, and from each other.
- You have experience of working in or with distributed teams, and know that it requires great communication skills and the ability to travel.
- You have a software development background and understand tech.
