We are seeking a self-starter who is passionate about driving organic growth through search. In exchange for your insatiable curiosity and Paid Media chops, we offer the opportunity to make an impact growing our own business and our clients’ businesses, to develop technical skills, and to reap the rewards of a job well done. Our team is well suited to grit hustlers who value a hard day’s work, the comforts of a beanbag chair and a quality pun.

  • A data-driven approach to marketing with an ability to compile and analyze client reports, uncover new opportunities, and drive strategy
  • Advanced knowledge of Excel. Working familiarity with Google Docs, Google Sheets and Google Drive (as well as Word and PowerPoint)
  • Passion! Knucklepuck thrives on growth from within and operates as a meritocracy. You will be one of the first members of our Paid Media department and will be afforded significant growth opportunities as the department expands based on your performance.

As you receive sufficient training in Paid Media, your primary responsibilities will include:

  • Implementation of paid media campaigns across various digital platforms (AdWords, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, among others)
  • Daily analysis of Paid Media performance trends
  • Day-to-day management of all paid media client accounts including bidding, optimization, testing, client inquiries & requests, seasonal adjustments, and roll-out of new campaigns and promotions
  • Development of strategic keyword and ad copy recommendations
  • Monitoring and adjusting campaign budgets as necessary to manage against client-directed monthly spend limits
  • Planning and leading meetings with clients to review performance, explain strategies and tactics and make recommendations for improvement
  • Designing & building new client paid media accounts including account structure, targeting, keywords and ads, extensions, etc.
  • Gaining working knowledge of each client’s industry to better understand and optimize goals, key metrics, budgets, target audience, etc.
  • Understanding how Paid Media fits into an overall digital marketing strategy
  • Working closely with SEO & Analytics teams to share insights and understand non-paid media influences on account performance
  • Reporting on performance at a daily, weekly, and monthly basis

It would be great if you have:
