We are seeking a highly motivated and organized Data Manager to join our Coca-Cola team at EssenceMediacom.


About the role/Team

This Data Manager role is the link between our global Data and Technology Operations team and TCCC StudioX regional teams, working to establish operational best practices to maximize media data capture, cleanliness, and value through the adoption of the E2E media tech stack for one of EssenceMediacom’s biggest clients, The Coca-Cola Company. While the role sits within the Global Client team, it will mean directly supporting and partnering with regional media leads to identify strategic data opportunities, implement workflow improvements, train on key processes, and ensure progress toward key client deadlines.


Objectives of the Role

The primary goal of the Data Manager is to implement a data management strategy supporting the goal of using data as a strategic asset for our client, The Coca-Cola Company (TCCC). This role will work closely with global Data Management leads to oversee the adoption of key media tools, ensuring proper usage and error-free media data inputs.


The Data Manager will establish a working relationship with regional agencies and client media leads to understand key needs and devise data-driven KPIs to proactively address client priorities. The work will require high levels of coordination and organization as it will involve the navigation of a complex client and agency structure with competing deadlines and focus areas. It is essential to effectively coordinate with global teams supporting media tool consolidation and standardization, as well as regional and local teams onboarding and utilizing this tech stack for ongoing media planning, reporting, buying, and analytics workstreams.


The Data Manager will work independently to generate reporting to identify and address regional issues with taxonomy adherence and planning inputs to ensure manual data processes are both timely and accurate. Strong communication and training skills will be needed to support the onboarding and continuous support of regional planning and activation teams.
