Founded in 2009 by CEO Jeff Green and CTO Dave Pickles, The Trade Desk is building for the future, with continuous development and iteration based on the needs of its clients – the world’s largest brands and advertisers. This includes leading the initial development of an open-source, interoperable identity solution to preserve the future of the open internet.
