Associate Media Director (Video Games)

Location: Berlin  //  Job Id: 69C27FB7E3

If you’re a digital media leader with supervisory experience under your belt, it’s time for you to play with us!

At Liquid+Arcade, we’ve been helping video game publishers build their global fanbases for more than 20 years. We start with bringing big ideas and focused strategy to help our clients transform their videogame into a cultural phenomenon, then execute digital campaigns down to the last detail through display, social, page takeovers, digital video, and every other channel we believe will be effective.

What you’ll do

As our next associate media director, you’ll directly manage a team of media supervisors and strategists while serving as client lead for a group of our clients’ titles. In our world, marketing a video game is as fierce a competition as you’ll find while playing the games themselves. You’ll manage the overall health of client relationships, working with your team to ensure high satisfaction on the client side while building and motivating a team of experienced full-cycle media strategists.

Much of our team has been with us for years, despite a red-hot market with a lot of options. We believe this is the result of a collaborative culture where individuals are free to migrate toward their interests, and where learning is a constant.

Your main responsibilities

  • Manage media strategy and buying teams (typical size 3-7) for a variety of accounts
  • Ensure a healthy and growing relationship with a group of our clients
  • Serve as strategic leader for media planning and execution, signing off on plans and serving as a senior coach and mentor
  • Lead the engagement and serve as primary point of contact for EU based clients
  • Liaise with US and Mexico staff for efficient workflow and knowledge-sharing
  • Keep the fans front-of-mind all-the-time

Your experience and attributes

  • 5+ years of paid media experience, with a track record of promotion starting as an assistant in a media agency setting
  • 2+ years of direct management experience, which at a minimum should include senior individual contributors on a paid media team
  • Substantial knowledge of the paid media landscape particularly including pan-European media, including direct buy, paid social, programmatic, CTV/OOT, and partner relationships

Other preferred attributes to highlight in your application

  • University degree
  • Hands-on-keyboard experience in paid social or programmatic advertising
  • Experience with pitching new services into existing accounts

The perks we offer

Our cash compensation includes a competitive salary and generous bonus package. Our people also enjoy fully paid private health insurance, supplementary retirement and life insurance. We've also traveled together to Hawaii, Cabo, Puerto Vallarta and New Orleans together the last few years.

Our stance

Liquid+Arcade is committed to creating an anti-racist, anti-sexist environment. We're building an ad agency where committed and creative people from all backgrounds can do their best work.

This is a good representation of this position’s responsibilities but is not a comprehensive job description. Duties, clients, and team assignments may change as assigned.
