Why you left

Because of the deal between Microsoft and Appnexus where Appnexus bought up the Display Advertising Business.

Job Duties

At Microsoft, I have been working as an Account Manager within Display Advertising for the Norwegian Market. My duties were managing a portfolio of accounts, for both direct clients and agencies for the Nordics, especially within the Norwegian Market. My responsibilites were doing campaign management and campaign analysis and reach the clients KPI's. I have worked with two cross cultural teams, one team of account managers at Microsoft in Dublin and a local market team.

How did this career prepare you?

My career at Microsoft gave me the opportunity to work with the Appnexus console and manage CPC campaigns for Nordic clients. I believe that I will be working with a lot of the same clients if I join the team at Appnexus, I know how the clients operate, and what they will be expecting which makes me a great asset for appnexus.

Rate your managers

Great! My managers have always been very helpful, and supportive with anything that I required.

That has to be the Onboarding Plan. The Onboarding plan is a training guide for new starters. When I started at Microsoft

Advancement opportunities
