The Role

The Programmatic Campaign Manager role is a new role for MVF and reflects the recent success that we have enjoyed in testing Display activity. The role is a hands on role, but one with huge potential to grow and shape our programmatic strategy and capability.

We have recently had success running GDN activity, and have tested Programmatic Display with DBM. We are confident from these results that we should now invest in building MVF’s Programmatic Display capability.

The core focus of the role will be to build on and expand the programmatic display activity that we have run to date, and develop more sophisticated and data driven programmatic strategies across the breadth of MVFs subcategories.

You will be responsible for the end to end programmatic activity, from definition and execution of the creative brief, to defining and implementing the data, targeting, bidding and optimisation approach. You will have access to creative resource to assist in development of the creative. 

You will have a leading role in the selection of our marketing technology stack and in developing the data strategy to underpin our programmatic activity.

In time and as your activity develops, we will invest in building out the team and there may be opportunities for the right candidate to step up and run the channel, or to manage a team of traders under the leadership of a Head of Programmatic.
