Calling All Left-Brainers and Bagel Enthusiasts: Work For Us

Gawker Media's advertising team seeks a web-savvy, resourceful, and organized college grad for its Ad Ops Assistant position. The Ad Ops team works very closely with the Sales, Marketing, and Creative teams, which together are the overall Advertising group that is responsible for brand advertising and monetization on the Gawker Media properties. In a nutshell, you'll be working with the rest of our Ad Ops team to manage, optimize, and report on our many advertising campaigns.

Requirements
This is the perfect position for a college graduate ready to dive into the new media world—you have a personal interest in and passion about digital media and advertising. You also have relevant internship or entry level experience at other industry-related publishers, agencies, or other organizations.

  • You're driven, detail-oriented, and meticulous (yay, left-brainers who love working with data!)
  • Proactive in prioritizing daily tasks and keeping your own to-do list
  • Eager to problem solve, troubleshoot, and learn new concepts
  • Assertive and comfortable with direct client communication
  • Basic knowledge of HTML and keeping a blog (the "tech" side of blogging)
  • Interest in web trends and technologies
  • Experience with taking screenshots, cropping, and basic image editing
  • Familiarity with Excel and formulas is a must
  • We use Google products such as Adsense, Analytics, and Docs daily, so points if you are familiar with them
  • Banner trafficking experience or knowledge of DFP or another ad server is helpful, but not necessary

Notes
This is a full-time, entry-level position in Gawker Media's NYC headquarters. Salary and benefits will be provided, as well as not-so-uptight work environment complete with free Wednesday morning breakfasts (and a wide array of bagel choices) and a rooftop for after work hangouts.

  • Introductory note
  • Resume in plaintext in the body of the email
  • A link to your own personal blog or website, if you happen to have one
