WORK LOCATION: A HYBRID WORK EXPERIENCE

At GroupM, we believe that work is a part of life, not the other way around. To support that belief, we have recently adopted a “collaboration-led” hybrid approach to work in order to provide employees with the flexibility to do the best work of their lives no matter where they are working. This means that for roles where it makes sense, you'll spend some of your time in our incredible workspaces (when it's safe to do so) and some of your time remote. Check out this updated list of where we can hire:

  • California – LA or SF
  • Colorado – Denver
  • Florida – Miami/Fort Lauderdale
  • Georgia – Atlanta
  • Illinois – Chicago
  • Massachusetts – Boston
  • Michigan – Detroit
  • New York – New York City tri-state area (NY, NJ, CT)
  • North Carolina – Raleigh/Durham
  • Texas – Austin or Dallas/Fort Worth
  • Utah – Salt Lake City

ABOUT THE ROLE:

Do you thrive in a job with variety and challenge which combines talent management with campaign planning and execution?

The Manager, Search & Social position is a 3-pronged role. You will be accountable for the day-to-day management of a client's paid search and paid social marketing initiatives, managing the junior members of the team, and focusing increasingly on strategy development for your dedicated account(s).

  • Develop positive relationships with search engine and social media community, vendors and Directors for optimal service levels and results
  • Understand the client’s product, marketing objectives and digital goals, presenting to clients on regular basis

  • Monitor, track and evaluate campaign performance analytics, based on client KPI targets and baselines.
  • Stay on top of the latest updates regarding tools and User Interfaces across the search and social landscape.
  • Think creatively, do research, and develop tools and innovative tactics to improve efficiencies or advance the practice. Present practical ideas for future marketing expansion or optimization.
  • Actively contribute to corporate initiatives, automation projects, process changes and roll-outs.
  • Build, or assist in crafting, POVs, standard methodologies, and key process documentation
  • Campaign Strategy definition and implementation, working closely with other internal departments to develop fully integrated campaigns
  • Stay current on industry trends, focusing on how changes can help improve offerings to accounts and enhance our overall practice.

YOUR QUALIFICATIONS:

  • You'll join us because you have gained a minimum of 3 years of paid search and paid social campaign management experience
  • You'll have gained essential experience in Analytical Tools (Google Analytics, Web trends, Omniture), Search Engine Desktop Tools (Google AdWords Editor, Bing Ads Editor), and Social Media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, etc.)
  • Bid Management tools (DoubleClick Search, Kenshoo, Marin, etc. Marin & Searchlight) as well as 3rd Party Tracking Tools (DoubleClick, Floodlight, Sizmek, etc.)
