At Wavemaker, we believe that work is a part of life, not the other way around. To support that belief, we have recently adopted a "collaboration-led" hybrid approach to work in order to provide employees with the flexibility to do the best work of their lives no matter where they are working. This means that for roles where it makes sense, you'll spend some of your time in our incredible workspaces (when it's safe to do so) and some of your time remote.

  • Stay on top of the latest updates regarding tools and User Interfaces (AdWords, Bing, Bid Management Platforms, eMarketer, SEMrush, Search Engine Land, AdCenter, AdGooroo, etc.)

  • Think creatively, do research, and develop tools and innovative tactics to improve efficiencies or advance the practice. Present practical ideas for future marketing expansion or optimization.

  • Actively contribute to corporate initiatives, automation projects, process changes and roll-outs.

  • Build, or assist in crafting, POVs, standard methodologies, and key process documentation

  • Campaign Strategy definition and implementation, working closely with other internal departments to develop fully integrated search campaigns

  • Stay current on industry trends, focusing on how changes can help improve offerings to accounts and enhance our overall practice.


  • You'll join us because you have gained a minimum of 3 years of paid search campaign management experience

  • You'll have gained essential experience in Analytical Tools (Google Analytics, Web trends, Omniture), Search Engine Desktop Tools (Google AdWords Editor, Bing Ads Editor).

  • You'll be an emerging expert in Pay-Per-Click (PPC) optimization techniques (ROI / CPA / CPL / Impression Share)

  • Bid Management tools (DoubleClick Search, Kenshoo, Marin, etc. Marin & Searchlight) as well as 3rd Party Tracking Tools (DoubleClick, Floodlight, Sizmek, etc.)

  • Experience meeting with and delighting clients is essential

  • Working knowledge of Paid Social a plus
