  • Manage other advertising staff and vendors.

  • Work with our Amazon advertising team and learn more about the Amazon Advertising platform to eventually manage campaigns and oversee Amazon client accounts.

  • Maintain high levels of up-to-date knowledge of best practices and strategies in digital advertising.

  • Approximately 50% of your time will focus on hands-on campaign management in the first 6-12 months before transitioning to high-level strategy and staff management as the team grows.

15% Developing strategies, planning for new initiatives, and drafting creative requirements

15% Managing junior staff and/or contractors, collaborating with teammates

  • Experience and interest in social media marketing - both paid and organic.

  • You must know how to proactively manage digital campaigns, think two steps ahead, and keep track of what needs to be done today to achieve tomorrow’s goals.

Personality is important. You must:

  • Be an honest and ethical partner who our clients can trust to guide them through important decisions.

Roadmap for this position

The role will initially work alongside Casey Greenhood, one of the company owners who currently oversees all of the work described in this job listing. The goal is for this position to take over the majority of digital advertising responsibilities from Casey so she can spend more time on other parts of the business. Our plan is to hire another digital advertising support role within 6-9 months, though that timeline may be accelerated depending on growth trajectory.

Company Description
RocketBike is a successful digital advertising agency looking for talented people to help us continue our rapid pace of growth. We started out as a design and web development shop but we have done just about everything in the last seven years and worked with clients across industries from finance to tourism. That time and experience has revealed how we can provide the most value to our clients and grow our successful agency without running it like a sweatshop (ahem, like most agencies).

We realigned the business in 2019 to specialize in helping consumer brands achieve significant growth on Amazon and their direct-ecommerce websites. The pivot has been enormously successful.

We work closely with a small number of clients as a true partner who is invested in their success and works more like a remote department than just another vendor. This level of collaboration is not only rewarding on a personal level, but also offers the flexibility and incentive for us to be bold, test new strategies, and help our clients outperform competitors.

We know what it takes to make a brand succeed online, but our real secret to success is understanding the importance of people. We have high standards and push ourselves to succeed, but we want everyone on our team to enjoy what they do and have the time and mental space to live a rewarding life outside of work. Our focus on people is especially important when it comes to choosing clients. We only work with companies who have smart leadership and non-toxic cultures that align with our values of respect, trust, collaboration, and partnership.

If you’re a top performer and wish more people thought this way, this is the opportunity you’ve been waiting for. We hope to hear from you soon.
