Department Media
Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Manager/Supervisor

Gupta Media is looking for an Account Director to join our Media Department at a senior level. If you are passionate about media and marketing with extensive experience in leading results-driven, e-commerce and lead generation global campaigns, we need to talk with you.

Gupta Media was founded 20 years ago on the idea that advertising could create huge leverage in our client's business. Our early work was focused on the entertainment industry, specifically live events (Boston Calling, among others) and recorded music (Sony Music, Universal Music & Disney are all clients). More recently, we have dramatically grown our work with big brands (Amazon, Fender) and cult/challenger brands (Island Creek Oysters, Walden Local). We have a global client base with a growing local roster.

Although we're an ad agency, our work product combines strategic consulting, media planning and buying, creativity and advanced analytics.  We pride ourselves on being innovative, competitive and disruptive in the digital space. We’ve built tools and developed strategies to make digital marketing better.

As Account Director, you will be a key member of our media management team, bringing a fresh perspective to our team, with proven experience that will allow you to quickly adapt to our strategy and approach. Specific responsibilities include:

Client Management
You will be managing global business for high-priority clients. This involves daily and weekly communication with (hopefully!) some travel to engage and build lasting partnerships.

Team Management
As Account Director, you will manage a team of Analysts and Coordinators, ensuring they are delivering at every stage of the campaign. You will also be involved in supporting their hiring, training and ongoing career development as we continue to build a best-in-class team.

Strategy Development
As a leader within our Media team, you will build and maintain expertise in the digital platforms we use, providing insights and analysis on the campaigns that you oversee. Staying on top of the latest trends in digital marketing, emerging platforms, developments in programmatic and other areas, you will be actively involved in helping to build our internal strategy on new platforms and working with our clients to facilitate testing.

Required Skills and Education

  • Bachelor’s degree or higher with preference for Marketing, Advertising, Business, Economics or related field;
  • 8+ years experience in Digital Marketing;
  • Proven experience managing complex clients with annual media spends in the $2mm+ a year range;
  • Experience in managing a team of direct reports;
  • A high level of enthusiasm and professionalism;
  • Analytical Expertise;
  • Curiosity - An important trait in every role on every team within our organization.

At Gupta Media, we work hard every day to be better at all that we do — and that includes fostering a diverse and inclusive community that encourages and respects a broad range of backgrounds, experiences and ideas. Join us and help us find the next great idea.

Gupta Media is an office-first (with flexibility) organization and we are excited to have our team working together again. Vaccines are the best tool currently available to help control this global pandemic and protect our employees. Therefore, with the health and well-being of our staff a top priority, as a condition of employment, all employees will be required to demonstrate that they have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to their first day (subject to the availability of reasonable accommodation when required by law).
