Tumblr launched in 2007 with the belief that people need a place to say what they want, be who they want, and connect over what they love. We continue to build out Tumblr as a platform for free expression, individuality, and human connection. That’s why we need intelligent, low ego, funny people to keep Tumblr growing. We’re big enough to give you the resources you need and still small enough that you can work on things that matter. Come work with us.

  • Oversee the execution, optimization, and analysis of advertising programs using internal tools and dashboards
  • Serve as key contact and knowledge source for multiple clients, agency partners and internal teams before, during and after campaigns
  • Help shape Tumblr's native ads product roadmap, for mobile and in general, by aggregating and sharing client feedback and campaign metrics with cross-functional stakeholders
  • Resolving campaign issues in a timely and productive manner, and identifying and implementing process improvements
