Newton’s First Law: Objects at rest tend to remain at rest. The same is true of people. At DRUM, our job is to get people to move. But random movement is pointless. Movement in rhythm with the goals of our clients, on the other hand, is the most valuable thing in the world. There’s an irresistible beat that gets brands noticed, gets people talking and, above all, gets results. No wonder so many great brands — like Aflac, E*TRADE, PayPal, Wounded Warrior Project and more — trust us to help take them where they want to go. We’re DRUM. Driving Results with Unified Marketing. Let’s dance.
If you’re not having any fun at work, you’re doing it wrong. Whether you’re in our Atlanta, Chicago or New York office, you’ll see for yourself: At DRUM, we love what we do. We’re focused, but not funless. Aggressive, but not ad-holes. After all, we believe in harmony. We embrace team collaboration across offices. The results are there in everything we do, from our award-winning campaigns to our slightly less decorated bowling team. And it’s the reason our agency is recognized time and again, from Chief Marketer’s Top 200 Agencies to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Top Workplaces.
The Director of Paid Social is one of the single most important roles at DRUM, responsible for driving client and agency growth by tapping into the power of social to transform businesses by identifying, reaching, engaging with and converting audiences across every platform, while also marrying social performance with other online and offline marketing efforts. You will be a thought leader both internally and externally, owning platform direct relationships, bringing new opportunities to the team and selecting technology platforms that enhance how we plan, buy, measure and synchronize social amongst all media efforts. While your primary focus will be the scale and efficiency of social media purchased, you will also partner closely with our creative team to co-author strategy and content production, ensuring that you have the most powerful assets necessary to do best-in-class work. At DRUM we take advantage of our breadth of in-house capabilities that span media, technology, analytics, creative and content, which will provide you a unique & powerful opportunity to do the best work of your career.
You’ll report to the Chief Media Officer and support a wide variety of Clients across verticals, with a keen focus on acquiring new Clients. You will also have the opportunity to build upon the existing team and craft your own vision for a best-in-class Paid Social offering, with full support from the CMO. This is your opportunity to join an independent agency in hyper growth mode and enjoy true ownership and autonomy.
