We’re looking for a Digital Ads Manager with electoral & advocacy experience to join our Advertising Area.
When you come work for us, here’s what you’ll find:
- Work that is meaningful. We are a fast-paced, deadline-driven consulting firm that only works with nonprofit clients who are essential to advancing the cause of justice, alleviating suffering, and solving the greatest challenges we face.
- Commitment to Anti-Racism, Equity, and Inclusion (AEI). We envision an anti-oppressive workplace that ensures an inclusive employee experience, promotes equitable outcomes for staff, and supports clients to center accessibility and anti-racism in their programs.
- Colleagues you can count on. Kind, dedicated, passionate people who work collaboratively to get things done and help you do your best.
- An organization that embraces change. We strive to improve and adapt and always seek new ways that we can contribute to a just, inclusive, and sustainable world. We are also continually working on making M+R a better place for our staff.
So that’s us. Now about the work:
- We run innovative and strategic digital organizing, electoral, and narrative campaigns that build grassroots power and create lasting change. We partner with progressive groups working on everything from economic justice to climate change to global poverty – think Planned Parenthood, big national unions, NRDC, healthcare advocacy groups, and more. We work exclusively with outside organizations, not candidate campaigns, because our goal is not just to win an election but to build long-term organizing infrastructure that can hold people in power accountable.
- Day-to-day, we’re figuring out how to drive the narrative, influence policy, hold corporations and politicians accountable, recruit activists, make the most of news moments, and leave no idea unconsidered that might build power. We have a particular focus on developing new models to mobilize infrequent voters of color.
Here’s what you’ll be doing in this role:
- Work in advertising tools to implement and optimize digital advertising campaigns across our clients. This includes display/retargeting, video, mobile, SEM, and Facebook advertising.
- Place and monitor media buys – and make adjustments as necessary to optimize results.
- Evaluate digital advertising performance – produce detailed reports on campaigns.
- Project management: Keep task lists, meetings agendas, and communications calendars across your clients.
- Participate in client strategy and media planning meetings.
- Research new advertising venues and stay abreast of online advertising trends; develop and maintain relationships with vendors and partners.
- Do your part to help us run smoothly, including carefully tracking all of your hours.
Skills and experiences required for this role:
- 2-4 years of digital marketing experience, including at least 1 year in a dedicated digital advertising role focused on media buying or trafficking.
- 1 year of work experience with candidate campaigns, issue advocacy organizations, or with agencies that work with these clients.
- Proficiency in any of the following: programmatic display, paid social, or paid search.
- Familiarity with all aspects of ad campaign management: campaign setup, ad trafficking, optimizations and reporting and analysis.
- Ability to manipulate and analyze data in reporting systems such as Excel.
