Type of Job: Media Buying & Planning

Position: Full Time

Location:  Woodland Hills, California

Compensation: Excellent, DOE


The Director, Programmatic Media Planning and Buying is our chief Evangelist and Operator in PMB for a number of high volume and sophisticated clients, both long term and opportunistic. As a Director, you are an integral part of our new business development process. As an Operator, you "own" our PMB functions, and have full authority and responsibility to create an agile, leading edge solution. 

We are a Professional Services firm that engages with a very limited number of very high impact clients across their entire ecosystem. Your role will encompass much more than media buying... you'll be integral to an empirical buying process that delivers hundreds of leads a day, measures their conversion, and adjusts buying based on actual results. 

At the same time, you will also be working in our crisis and issues practice, leading strategic display media buying for a variety of high stakes situations, including proxy contests, labor/management disputes, carriage/fee negotiations, civil litigation, and other issues. 

We offer an excellent compensation and benefits package to the right person. Our offices are in Warner Center in Woodland Hills, California.
