Job Description

Zeus is a fast-growing component of the Washington Post that is helping publishers optimize their digital advertising and level the playing field as they compete for ad dollars with digital native social and search giants, using the same technology and strategy as The Washington Post.

The Manager, Publisher Integrations is responsible for the team, technology and processes that facilitate implementation and management of Zeus software on publisher customer sites. You'll manage a team of onboarding specialists who work directly on implementation projects. You'll ensure implementations are successful by bringing together your team, experts from our organization and publisher teams. You'll develop a vision for improved onboarding and will collaborate with product and engineering teams to develop technology and procedures that improve the quality, speed and efficiency of implementation projects. This position is remote-friendly for work in the US.

Zeus is a new business that is growing quickly, so you must be able to manage your team, in addition to building processes and procedures to help our organization scale.

While not an engineering or product management role, an understanding of core product development and engineering concepts is critical as you'll engage directly with those teams to ensure our software properly supports our customer integrations.

  • Collaborate with sales and account management leaders to ensure clean handoffs and consistent customer expectations as we transition work across our Zeus teams.
  • Participate in sales discussions to ensure prospects understand the integration process.
  • Hire and train team members and work with Sales to manage, communicate and plan capacity for client onboarding projects.
  • Lead development and maintenance of onboarding documentation and tools for customers and internal teams.
  • Drive evolution of documentation and tools to account for and leverage new products/features as they are released.
  • Collaborate with product, partner management, BI and engineering teams to ensure proper personnel support of onboarding projects from our internal teams.
  • Convene cross-functional teams to address critical customer onboarding or maintenance issues/improvements.
  • Develop expertise on the Zeus product and the Ad Tech space to facilitate detailed conversations with customers.
  • Identify unique features of each client implementation project and engage additional Zeus teams to ensure our products incorporate a scalable solution for future implementations.
  • Influence the rollout of new products to ensure the customer integrations can continue to be effectively managed.

  • Bachelor's Degree or equivalent work experience
  • Minimum experience 10 years in B2B software operations or product management
  • Proven experience measuring and implementing repeatable processes with cross-functional teams
  • Project management skills, with a strong focus on identifying and streamlining cross-team dependencies
  • Proven ability to interact with customers and all organizational levels and leading cross-functional teams
  • Experience in publishing and/or digital advertising technology (ad tech) preferred
  • Strong organizational, creative problem-solving, and collaborative skills
  • Ability to work well in a dynamic group environment and under deadline pressures
