Who We Are:

Slack and Company, an award-winning integrated marketing communications agency, is currently seeking a Media Supervisor for its Media Department. You've got to be sharp, people- and team-oriented, self-motivated, and a proven problem solver. Having fun is part of the job description, so bring your enthusiasm and zest for doing a great job. We're passionate about marketing and the clients we work with. We help industry leaders in food and beverage, packaging, social media, telecom, manufacturing, construction, online commerce, technology and more build strong business brands and generate profitable return on investment.

Is This the Right Fit?

We’re looking for a Media Supervisor with experience in planning, negotiating, buying and reporting on media programs. Ideally, there’s a mix of publisher-direct and programmatic/network display advertising and another area of media – performance media, search, e-mail, print, etc. We ask our media professionals to own all the media executions for specific clients, putting them in a position to optimize specific executions and overall programs. Our clients have a variety of goals – awareness, leads, traffic, downloads – and that requires multi-channel and multi-touch programs. If you can juggle several important things at once, can spot opportunities as they arise and can pivot based on what the reports tell you, this is the right fit for you.

What You Will Be Doing:

The Media Supervisor is responsible for media activities on a group of accounts; develops the media plan; selects media to achieve a given sales objective within a predetermined budget. They oversee the execution of paid media (including SEM) and direct response (including email) campaigns and periodic reporting. This includes research, planning, negotiation, buying, bidding, vendor management and project management. Additionally, the Media Supervisor will work closely with the Chief Digital Officer, Director of Demand Generation and the VP/Media Director to ensure all measurement elements are planned and put in place during campaigns.

What Are We Looking For:

  • Hungry, go-getter approach to life and work

  • Speed and versatility: comfort in working in a fast-paced environment
  • Self-motivated with no fear of deadlines
