About the job
Our marketing campaign projects, like our users, span the globe and require managers to keep the big picture in focus. As part of the Global Marketing team, you plan requirements with internal customers and/or external agencies and usher projects through the entire project lifecycle. Your projects often span offices, time zones and hemispheres, and it’s your job to keep all the players coordinated on the project’s progress and deadlines.

You will partner with agencies on high-profile media placements to work with our internal creative and social team to deliver always-on content.

As a creative leader, you will help us continue to design and implement best practices through influence on organizational design, resource management, budgeting, approval processes, as well as the work itself.
You will manage multidisciplinary projects across all mediums. This includes getting clear on the strategy, setting and managing project schedules and budgets, as well as partnering across the organization to identify risks and clearly communicate goals to project stakeholders and the team.
