Outbrain also enables owners of content, both publishers and brands to run content marketing campaigns across our publisher network.

Based out of Sydney, you will work closely with the business development team and be responsible for the implementation and launch of Outbrain technology on publisher sites. A key focus for the role will be the ongoing management and growth of a set of dedicated accounts. You will also liaise with the Technical Account Management and broader account management team to provide support on new and ongoing partner implementations.
