Who we are…..

PLAYGROUND XYZ is an advertising technology business headquartered in Sydney with
operations in Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, London, Los Angeles and New York.

Our mission is to master the art and science of maximizing attention. To do this, we’ve built the
world’s first AI that can measure how long an ad was looked at (a metric we call Attention Time).
Fuelled and verified by real eye tracking data, but able to throw off the shackles of panels and
instead scale infinitely across the world wide web, our AI is set to revolutionize the way that
digital media is measured, bought and sold.

We’re a fast growing business with every major agency group and a great list of top tier
publishers using our technology. We’re a team of digital experts with an unrelenting focus on
quality products and tech.

Our tech is being used by top 100 brands across the globe. We’ve won coveted ‘Marketing
Technology Company of the Year’ awards from both B&T and Mumbrella and featured twice as a
Rising Star in the Deloitte Fast 50 Technology Awards.

We’re a passionate, enthusiastic team who are genuinely spending our days doing what we love
the most – creating new disruptive technologies and products for big brands.


The opportunity to be…

The best Independent Agency Account Manager ever! A Digital evangelist and an educator . We pride
ourselves on hiring only great talent. People who dream of great things and have the passion and
tenacity to pull them off. You should expect to be given a task, knock it out of the park and be
rewarded for it. The right candidate will thrive in a high performance culture where you’re expected to
shine and in return you can expect a high level of excellence from the team around you.

This role takes on the day to day sales responsibilities across a diverse selection of independently
owned media agencies across Australia with unlimited growth potential.

The right candidate will be a natural orator, knowledgeable about digital media, a sound customer
service skill set, creative flair and a yearning to learn. You’ll be a rising star who’s closing off each
quarter over target and frustrated that the company you work for won’t let you grow at the rate you’re
capable of. You’ll hate politics, red tape and sub standard product sets. You’ll have a heap of ideas
that currently fall on deaf ears. Most of all, you’ll be ready to make a move into a company where all
that gets flipped on its head.

If this sounds like you, get in touch.
