AdRizer is looking for an experienced Senior Media Buyer to join our office in Sarasota, FL! The analytical ‘ROI Crusaders’ here at AdRizer are committed to finding innovative ways to grow a highly engaged audience and connect that audience with top-tier advertisers. From the landing page load time to the ad creatives, to the audience engagement algorithms, our full-stack optimization process seeks to leave no stone unturned.
The Senior Media Buyer will create, monitor, and optimize ad campaigns for our clients. This position is responsible for acquiring desirable time slots and media space for advertising clients. Buyers also monitor the purchased media to make sure the advertisements appear as planned, and they credit or bill clients as necessary to settle accounts.
What you’ll need to succeed:
A drive for the grind — The internet is changing every day, which means there is always something new to learn. There are no official homework assignments and no micromanaging — you’ll have to find your own drive to stay on the forefront of innovation.
Don’t be afraid of numbers — Seven didn’t eat nine. It’s no quantum physics, but you will be analyzing and making decisions based on interpretations of data every day as a critical part of the job. If thinking about looking at rows of data on a computer screen makes you cringe, this is probably not your wheelhouse.
A flare for the creative — This job is equal parts math and creative. We aren’t painting portraits or winning Pulitzers, but you should be able to spin a headline and find a creative way to make an image stand out amongst the rest.
Passionate about the internet — Internet and social media devotees’ welcome! We’re in the business of engagement. You should be interested in learning the inner workings of the internet, i.e., have questions like “How does Facebook know I have a soft spot for cat videos?”
Play well with others — It’s ok to be a lone ranger at times but to truly thrive you’ll need to be able to demonstrate a strong ability to collaborate with co-workers to achieve client and company-level goals.
