Senior Paid Media Manager: E-commerce

journeyFull Time
contract TypeUK - Remote
application Closes28/7/2024

Who we are:

We are Spekk; a digital advertising agency for high consideration products. We help businesses with complex offerings increase their sales by combining the power of algorithms with human empathy, storytelling and style. Our primary way of doing this is through our Paid Media Management service, which is at the heart of our business. In addition to this, we also offer creative campaign development and social first content production. 



 

About the job:

 

 

 

What you would do in this role:

At Spekk the majority of our work is done within three different client verticals; travel & experiences, high-growth start-ups and high-end e-commerce – this is where you come in. 

 

As a Senior Paid Media Manager: E-commerce at Spekk you’ll have the power to direct and manage the paid media of some truly inspiring businesses. From Desmond & Dempsey’s really fancy pyjamas to Hunza G’s iconic swimsuits and Bridgman’s high-quality furniture, the type of products we work with are anything but throw-away. 

 

Used to drowning in accounts? Well, think of Spekk as a lifesaving rubber-duck-floatie. Here, you’ll never be given more than 5 clients to work on, so you can dedicate more time to growing them. We manage accounts more like a boutique strategy consulting firm than a traditional performance agency. This means that while you are responsible for the success of your accounts, you’ll be able to bounce strategy off more senior team members and be supported by motivated juniors and technical experts. 

 

You should be excited at the prospect of thinking beyond standard Advantage+ campaigns. When working with high-consideration products you need to take a full-funnel, 360 approach to problem solving. You’ll analyse, strategise and execute paid media campaigns. You’ll be expected to give input on creative briefs and to evaluate the effectiveness of creative assets.

 

 

Who is this role for:

  • People who dig deeper. The type of products we market are high consideration, which means they have complex consumer buying journeys. A superficial understanding of a challenge or problem won’t cut it.
  • You’ve run Meta ads professionally for 2+ years and TikTok ads for at least 1 year for a number of different e-commerce brands, preferably at an agency.
  • Experience from small agencies:  you should be super crafty; – equally comfortable with a smaller budget as you are with the responsibility of handling a large one.
  • Both sides of the brain. The role requires both analytical and creative thinking, so you’ll need to be not just well-rounded, but more or less perfectly spherical.
  • Curiosity killed the cat, but made your career. Candidates should be curious and inquisitive, ask questions and be hungry for knowledge.
  • Really, really, really great people. We’re hard working and highly motivated, but we’re also here to enjoy our work. Ideally you’d be someone who looks out for others and revels in being social. The team mostly works remotely but we meet up on team trips all over the world.

 

 

What you’ll get:

  • Working with fun & fascinating businesses – think music festivals in tropical locations, or Regenesis – Novak Djokovic’s new entrepreneurial venture.
  • The chance to travel while your investment banker friends are slurping noodles at 2am somewhere dreadful like Canary Wharf.
  • The freedom of working remotely, but with trips every year to meet up with the team.
  • A meritocracy free from red tape or stupid barriers to your personal development – take Stephen as an example, he made Partner 4 years after joining as an intern.

 

 

Timings & remuneration:

  • Start date: Summer 2024. Full-time position, in it for the long run.
  • We’re flexible around employment forms depending on location – we can figure out what suits both sides best.
  • Remuneration: £35,000 – £52,000 per year depending on experience.

 

 

Benefits & Perks:

  • Team trips to places like Barcelona, Nice and Mallorca (2-3 per year).
  • £500 one-off allocation for home office set-up. 
  • Fully remote workforce with team members based in the UK, Sweden, Spain, Germany, France and Portugal.
  • Casa Spekk in Barcelona (our own ‘brand home’). Whenever you are in town you can take full advantage of this collaboration space.

 

 

Please apply if…

  • Your level of English is advanced.
  • UK/EU based.
  • You’ve also worked with other social ad platforms outside of Meta and TikTok.
  • You consider yourself very strategic.
  • You’re a human calculator.
  • You’re the person in a meeting everyone looks to for answers.
  • You know how to manage clients – even when they frustrate you. 
  • When you go to sleep at night, you dream of neatly organised spreadsheets.
  • You fall to your knees in despair when a comma is out of place, when a formula doesn’t add up, or when you’re missing a piece of a puzzle.
  • You can work during UK office hours (we’re pretty flexible, but for meetings we’ll need you to be around).

 

 

Bonus points if…

  • You’d rather spend your money on seeing the world rather than buying more of what’s in it.
  • You speak more than one language.
  • You are the person that always knows the new trends.
  • You have a morally and/or legally questionable story from your gap year to tell us.
  • You’d go to Burning Man over Coachella.
  • You can mix a killer mezcal cocktail.
