  • Researching new digital media networks and third party data sources
  • Managing budgets and tracking media placements
  • Tracking hundreds of creative assets and ensuring they’re being deployed in the right place at the right time
  • Analyzing data in Excel and other platforms to bring patterns and insights to light
  • Monitoring ongoing marketing campaigns and making recommendations for optimizing our spending

Here’s what we usually look for in an ideal candidate–

  • Bachelors degree or better with considerable quantitative coursework
  • Strong math and Excel skills
  • Solid skills with the rest of Microsoft Office or Google Docs
  • Strong communication skills
  • Fast learner and a strong desire to learn the business
  • A passion for getting started in the media business
  • Of course, if you’re into video games, that’s helpful as well!
