Digital Media Buyer & Account Manager (Not currently hiring)

We’re a fun and growing digital agency located just off the west end of the Pearl St. Mall in Boulder.

Our mission is to lead amazing lives. Part of how we do that is through:

  • Adventure and learning: attending conferences, dedicated team education time to learn new techniques, testing new marketing efforts, at least 4 weeks vacation to do fun/adventurous things outside the office (after all, we live in CO for a reason), and company funding for outside education/experiences
  • Being sustainable: work/life balance in terms of working to our full potential but not overdoing it, company funded gym membership to stay healthy, low Co2 commuting options, helping with office recycling and composting, planting trees every month, financial security through good pay and 401k with 5% match, career advancement support, work with clients who are doing good for the world
  • Building healthy relationships: surround ourselves with great teammates, clients, and vendors, be trustworthy, and have enough time with our friends and family outside of work

In the end, these pillars lead us to be happy doing great work for satisfied clients, who, in turn, are helping the world.

We’re bursting at the seams with work and would like to hire a hard-working digital advertising manager to help us do great work. And while your experience matters, it’s who you are that matters most.

In this role you’ll do digital media buying, so you need to have the technical skills to set-up, manage, and track digital ads across PPC, social, and display. The account management role involves meeting regularly with clients to do readouts. It’s a great position because you can work on digital advertising, connect closely with clients, and be exposed to other work types such as SEO, strategy, design, copywriting, development, and more.

We love our jobs helping clients though digital advertising on Facebook, Instagram, Google Ads, Facebook, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Tik Tok, display, and more.

+ Analytical skills with data and spreadsheets, plus creativity and people skills
+ Ideally 5+ years of experience managing digital advertising, minimum 3 years
+ High GPA and test scores from school
+ Hard working, detail oriented, reliable, trustworthy, positive, good with people, and easy to get along with
+ Excited to work in downtown Boulder, as most work will be done in the office so that we can collaborate (we provide a free bus pass)

+ Up to 4 weeks paid time off during your first year, if you’re doing well
+ Up to $100/mo toward gym membership or similar activity
+ Free bus pass from RTD to make your commute more relaxing and to save money
+ Ideally work from the office all days, but for those living in Denver, 1 day per week work from home to start, then more if you’re crushing it
+ 100% company paid health insurance
+ Professional ergonomic set-up at the office so that you’re feeling good
+ 9:30 am start time, but flexible if you prefer to start earlier
+ Longer-term, potentially getting on the partner track, i.e. owning part of the company
+ Will be adding a 401k with 5% of salary company matching by the end of May
