Paid Media Manager



Welcome aboard VSSL. It’s pronounced “vessel” of course, but we’re more than a ship, we’re a fast, agile digital agency of brand builders, campaign makers, website creators and more. Our crew brings vision, strategy, spirit, and loyalty to the challenge of helping clients stand out in today’s aggressive, crowded and fast-changing digital world. And that’s exactly what we’re looking for in our next crew member.

Make Sure We’re Your Kind of Crew

This crew succeeds because we’ve got each other’s backs. We’re quick to offer help and accept it when needed. We’re flexible enough to wear whatever hat needs wearing. And we love a good fight — if it’s for each other, for our clients, or an idea we believe in — and against mediocrity and easy solutions. It’s how we get our clients noticed and remembered, which is always our destination.

What the Paid Media Manager Does

The realm you’ll oversee includes LinkedIn, AdWords, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, display ads, and programmatic banners. With your expert knowledge of paid-media principles, SEM, SEO and digital marketing, you’ll create and launch strategic PPC campaigns, track KPIs, and continually optimize tactics to bring our clients the highest possible return. The manager also monitors budgets and adjusts bids, oversees platform accounts and vendors, advises on keywords and targeting, and reports all results. Writing crisp, clear and to-the-point copy is invaluable to these efforts.

What You Will Need:

  • B.S./B.A. in Marketing, Digital Media or a related field
  • Successful experience as a PPC Manager or Digital Marketing Specialist, with the analytics to prove it
  • In-depth knowledge of all major digital platforms and familiarity with niche platforms
  • Expertise in analytical tools such as Google Analytics, Tableau, WebTrends, SuperMetrics, Google Data Studio, etc., as well as data analysis and reporting
  • Excellent communication skills
  • Strong math and analytical skills
  • Proficiency in MS Excel
  • An understanding of HTML and XML is a plus
  • AdWords certification is a plus
