Position Summary
The Hub Project is looking to add a mission-driven Paid Media Manager to add to our growing Paid Media team. The Paid Media Manager will work with The Hub’s paid media team and the Campaigns departments to develop innovative, strategic, and effective paid media programs for our campaigns that hold elected officials in key states accountable for delivering for their constituents. In this role, you will be responsible for working with the program’s internal teams to integrate our paid media efforts within our broader campaigns, provide and facilitate the creative feedback process, and serve as a point of contact with external media vendors. We’re a fast-moving place that’s always ready to jump into the next fight, so the right person for the job is not afraid of taking on new opportunities to move people to action and quickly responding to an ever-changing news cycle, while keeping all the pieces organized.

As Paid Media Manager, you’ll:

  • Manage external paid media vendors and consultants (such as TV, radio, direct mail, digital, micro-influencers, etc.) to design and execute successful, integrated paid media campaigns across media channels.
    Coordinate and collaborate with internal teams and external partners to align on audience targeting, and track and manage creative approvals processes for paid campaigns.
  • Own paid media work from concepting through reporting on several states of our State Accountability Program work.
  • Advise internal project teams on paid media strategy and execution.
  • Design and launch social media advertising campaigns in-house as appropriate – particularly during rapid response moments.
  • Analyze and track paid media performance and create reports for internal and external stakeholders.
  • Keep a pulse on the latest trends and best practices for paid media and find innovative ways to integrate them into our campaigns.
  • Perform other duties as assigned.

About you:

  • You are committed to a just and inclusive economy that delivers opportunity and dignity to all Americans and passionate about preserving and strengthening our democracy.
  • You thrive on managing projects with many stakeholders and moving pieces, and are able to creatively distill and organize feedback to achieve our overarching goals.
  • You have experience with media buying — either from the traditional TV and radio side, and/or with digital self-serve platforms.
  • You are a creative problem-solver, organized, and live for the details and a good spreadsheet.
  • You are passionate about following the latest ad trends, tracking campaign performance, and using your analytical brain to make our ads  better.
  • You are comfortable taking on evolving responsibilities.
  • You show initiative and are adaptable to changing requirements.
  • You are comfortable collaborating with a team while taking ownership of your piece of a project.
  • You are comfortable with fast-paced work.

Preferred experience:
At least 3 years of relevant paid media experience.

Comprehensive benefits package that includes employer-paid health, dental, and vision insurance, 3% employer match on 401k contributions, pre-tax transportation benefits, and paid holidays, vacation, sick, and volunteer time off.
