Media Manager

About this role

The Media Manager is an integral role at Arm Candy. If you enjoy responsibility, managing a team, creating plans, and putting them into fruition, then you’ll love this.

You’ll be constantly interacting with agency-clients and media partners to provide guidance, direction, recommendations, and hands-on help. You’ll work on developing and executing media plans from beginning to end – all while coaching, managing and mentoring Media Associates.

You won’t be on your own however, as you’ll report directly into a Director of Media and be working hand-in-hand with our Ad Ops team. Media Planning is a core service offering Arm Candy provides, so you’ll receive extensive training on how to build our top of the line plans, leveraging our unique tools and technology.

If you’re a self-starter with lots of enthusiasm for devising innovative and integrated media solutions, you get energized by the notion of critical thinking, conceptualizing, and brainstorming with others, you have an entrepreneurial spirit and want to be a part of an agency start-up that is experiencing accelerated growth … then you’ve come to the right place.

These are check boxes, but the role is much-much more.
