We are looking for talented individuals to join our programmatic display campaign team, which is one of the fastest growing and most highly respected in the UK and Europe.

You may be wondering what programmatic display is. Well put simply, programmatic display is a way of advertising online to targeted consumers. Users browsing the internet could see programmatic display banner ads, and the advertisers pay for the serving of those ads.

You will work with colleagues and clients to understand our clients’ objectives and will formulate a campaign strategy based around these. You will be responsible for designing and implementing campaigns, analysing performance data, and identifying ways to optimise performance. You will liaise directly with clients, providing them with regular reports, analysis, insights and big-picture strategy.

As part of a fast growing team you will be encouraged to help assist with our evolution and will have the opportunity to learn about new areas within the programmatic space, often having the chance to be first to market with new tools or targeting strategies.

Programmatic advertising is a rapidly evolving sector and there is a strong focus on sharing skills and experience within the team.  You will be encouraged to participate in, and contribute to, our various initiatives in this regard as well as publishing blog posts etc. to help promote our capabilities with the wider community.

Thanks to the rapid growth and our commitment to hiring only at junior levels, there are fantastic opportunities for career progression.  These include mentoring and training, development of our technical capabilities and thought leadership, driving strategy across multiple accounts, and ultimately the potential to manage a team of specialists.

Previous experience in programmatic advertising is not required, as we provide a comprehensive six week structured training program. It may feel like a lot to take in at first but you’ll be up to scratch in no time.

The Individual

Hopefully the above has given you a picture of what your day or week could look like here; fast-paced, autonomous and hugely rewarding. As such, we’re looking for enthusiastic people who are comfortable managing their own time, able to effectively prioritise work and recognise problems and opportunities to seek support as necessary.

We don’t need you to have worked in digital marketing before but there are some key requirements. Everyone that works in our programmatic marketing team has their own clients which means that strong written and verbal communications are a requisite, as well as confidence in dealing with people at a range of different levels. You’re going to be optimising your campaign based on data; so whilst you don’t have to be Stephen Hawking, being comfortable with basic numeracy and spreadsheetery is really handy. Similarly, logic and reasoning skills are a must if you’re to effectively tackle a potential minefield of problems in a successful way. Finally – passion, ambition and curiosity are all great traits in any candidate as they demonstrate your ability to be a good team-player who will contribute to our ongoing success.

To demonstrate the above, we’re looking for you to have an outstanding academic record (remember, we love geeks!) including the following or equivalent:

  • At least five grade As at GCSE
  • Minimum of 320 UCAS points (ABB at A level)
  • A degree classification of 2:1 or above (in any subject)

Language skills are a huge plus, except perhaps Latin or Klingon.

The package

We offer starting salaries of £22,000-25,000 depending on experience (think of all the Pot Noodles!) and an excellent package including 25 days’ holiday, a mobile phone and a company pension scheme.

Unfortunately at the moment we cannot support visa applications so you must have permission to work in the UK before applying.
