  • A natural leader that exudes confidence, positivity, motivation and empathy who is energized by coaching and mentoring others
  • Someone with business acumen and a true passion for solving business challenges who is motivated by making an impact on a client’s bottom line  
  • A collaborative spirit who respects what Creative and Tech bring to the table; a desire to work across the aisle to create and optimize high-performing marketing programs
  • A team player that genuinely thrives from working with people, whether that be clients, peer leaders or direct reports
  • An innovative soul that isn’t scared of continually trying or learning new things in the name of progress


What’s in it for you:

  • A tremendous opportunity to drive the growth of your career within a very entrepreneurial, nimble and open-minded organization
  • A real voice in the company - your ideas, plans and feedback will have an impact, guaranteed
  • A supportive and collaborative leadership structure that truly cares about their people
  • A smart, innovative and fun-loving group of people to call your work family
  • A stable workplace with a 5-year average employee tenure - people like it here!


You’ve done this before:

  • Have had field experience as a channel specialist or media planner in both B2B and B2C
  • Developed high-performing, multi-channel digital programs within an agency setting
  • Nailed how to successfully pitch a media plan and communicate predictive performance in a compelling way
  • Proven yourself to be a valuable and trusted asset to clients
  • Been integral to the growth and success of an agency
  • Thrived as a team leader, mentor and manager 
  • Presented as an expert thought leader in front of clients, peers, and at industry events
  • Held a leadership position for at least 3 years
