  • You will manage and drive divisional growth; mapping recruiting needs against aggressive growth goals, as well as creating and maintaining processes that scale as the team expands
  • You are second in command and may be asked to serve as an acting divisional Unit Director on occasion
  • You’ll have the opportunity to own a portion of the divisional P&L (i.e. Paid Social), and manage and execute on top and bottom line growth while assisting in budgeting and forecasting
  • You’ll leverage large data sets from different channels to identify search wins for clients
  • You will play a role in our change management within the greater division, to ensure the team is adopting new tools, technology and processes that align with our company’s future vision

  • You have experience with evaluating current tools and technology, and making strategic decisions on where to invest in resources that will continue to support the company’s mission of being “technology powered, not people powered.”
  • You’ve worked in a “full funnel” environment, where you understand audiences and know which channels to deploy based on where the customer is in the purchase path
