You will take part in strategy, planning, and operations for Mindshare's US dedicated Facebook team located at Mindshare Los Angeles. With 116 offices across 86 different countries, each Mindshare office is unique. While this role is based in Los Angeles, it works closely with the Facebook Global teams in Portland and San Francisco. Irrespective of office, we're all bound by a few things that remain important: strategic vision, an understanding of the fundamentals, an eye for innovation, curiosity, and passion. We collaborate extremely closely with our agency partners, media or creative – in fact a vast majority of all our successes have come from our strong partnerships. And in this case, it's especially true – with much of the creative being done in-house, and a wealth of information and intelligence coming directly from the client. We were appointed to the global Facebook account in 2014 and have grown quickly ever since. The US market is the largest market in the Facebook portfolio and it continues to grow – in this position, you will be fully dedicated to the brand, building both your skills as well as supporting one of the most high profile brands in the world.

They should also understand traditional media and be savvy in digital and new, innovative media opportunities. A positive attitude and innate curiosity with the world of media are an absolute must.

You must have the ability to build strong relationships with Facebook clients (from junior up to senior levels), be a patient and willing partner to help them navigate and unravel complex questions, and create a working environment for your team that enables us to get the best from everyone.
