<p><strong>VICE x Team</strong></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">The Media Strategy team is central to the pre-sale and post-sale process, touching client relationships from end to end and playing a pivotal role in overall partnership success. The team supports a pod of sales individuals with strategizing, planning, executing and optimizing media-related activities across client advertising campaigns. We thrive in self-sufficiency, curiosity and proactivity when it comes to our work. The team atmosphere is highly strategic, collaborative, and fast paced. We hope you are as well, it’s nice when we all like some of the same things.</span></p>
<p><strong>Role x You</strong></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">You are excited about finding new and strategic ways to connect brands with their desired audience using data, analytics and creativity.&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></p>
<p><strong>In the short term </strong><span style="font-weight: 400;">you will develop media plans both in response to client RFP's and proactively to drive business, providing direct support to the VICE sales force. You’ll work collaboratively with internal departments (Client Strategy, Creative, Production, Sales, etc.) to ensure that all proposed </span><em><span style="font-weight: 400;">pre-sale </span></em><span style="font-weight: 400;">media plan elements are sound for VICE and for the prospective clients.</span></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">But </span><strong>after 6 months in this role </strong><span style="font-weight: 400;">you will be the client’s go-to media expert once a program sells through, managing communication, asset delivery, launch and performance.</span></p>
<p><strong>And after a year</strong><span style="font-weight: 400;"> you will lead strategy on RFPs of larger investment values and join sales on client calls and meetings to speak to your distribution and media proposals.</span></p>
<p><strong>Qualifications</strong></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">&nbsp;</span><strong>You have these:</strong></p>
<ul>
<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">2 - 4 years of experience in digital and social media planning/strategy in an agency or client setting.</span></li>
<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Strong analytical skills with high proficiency in Excel, Keynote, PowerPoint</span></li>
<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Expertise in "media math" and digital media buying/acquisition models (ie. CPA, CPC, CPM, CPE)</span></li>
<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Effective time management and organizational skills, as well as strong attention to detail.</span></li>
<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">High comfortability with managing multiple projects simultaneously</span></li>
<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Experience analyzing complex data and market research to formulating actionable plans</span></li>
</ul>
<p><strong>We’d love if you also had these:</strong></p>
<ul>
<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Working understanding of digital/analytic marketing platforms or tools (Google Ads Manager, Operative.One, Moat, Comscore, etc)</span></li>
<li style="font-weight: 400;"><span style="font-weight: 400;">Media confidence and comfortable articulating rationale behind media strategy and recommendations to clients</span></li>
</ul>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">We want to find people who believe in our goals, and feel inspired enough to grow while they’re here to fill the role, rather than someone who checks the boxes but isn’t invested. We encourage you to apply and show us what you’ve got. To learn more read the</span><a href="https://viceguideto.vice.com/"> <strong>VICE Guide to VICE</strong></a></p>
<p><strong>Working at VICE</strong></p>
<p><span style="font-weight: 400;">VICE prioritizes the ideas and people that other media companies miss.
