Programmatic Media Buyer
People don’t hate advertising. They hate bad advertising. Bad advertising is that which rudely interrupts
peoples’ already busy days to peddle products or services that are of no interest. It’s also advertising that
is tactless, irrelevant, badly timed, sometimes ugly, and plain ol’ boring. If you’ve ever wished that
someone would teach intrusive advertisements some manners, then we should talk.
We are seeking a Programmatic Media Buyer to join our integrated media team. McKee Wallwork and
Company is a 24-year old advertising agency located in Albuquerque, NM who has always fought to put
the right message in front of the right people at the right time and in the right way. It was a little easier
back when there were only a handful of media channels. Today’s growing number of media choices
requires specialized knowledge and experience in so many different fields that is too much for any one
person to manage. Thankfully, in this situation, the robots are here to save us. But behind every robot
mind is a brilliant person holding it accountable to what true success looks like.
The person we’re looking for requires experience in paid search and programmatic buying including
display, video, OTT, etc. Short of that, we’re looking for the brilliant mind who can scale a steep learning
curve and become a valuable member of the integrated media team. Icing on the digital cake would
include paid social and/or media planning experience. This role can be remote; however, culture is really
important here. We believe the best way to build culture is to be around each other, therefore in-office is
preferred. Below are the key expectations and characteristics for this role.
– Evaluate, negotiate, plan and purchase media through programmatic display, direct display, video,
– Oversee tagging, reporting, trafficking, optimizing, pacing etc. of programmatic campaign
– Analyze data and provide actionable insights—measure KPIs against benchmarks
– Advanced knowledge of Excel
– Knowledge of syndicated media research & systems (Nielsen, comScore, Acxiom, Epsilon, etc.)
