Digital Media Specialist

The AKQA Media Team’s purpose is to create a better future through the imaginative application of art and science. We work with our clients to understand their specific marketing objectives, whether these are brand awareness, consideration or conversion, and create and implement tailored media strategies that deliver real business results. As part of the AKQA Media Team, you will support the creation of media strategies, using a creative and analytical approach that identifies the best mix of channels, targets, and messages. 

In your role as a Digital Media Specialist at AKQA, you will be in charge of directly managing campaigns for our clients across different digital platforms, including their set-up and optimisation against agreed KPIs. You will participante in pre- and post-campaign analysis and provide regular performance reports to clients to maximise campaigns effectiveness.

You will fit right in with us if you thrive in a fast-paced environment and enjoy a varied work day, working on a number of tasks from various clients of different industries throughout the day. 

The role will be based in our offices in Milan, where you will join a specialised team focused on driving measurable business outcomes for clients through digital media insight and expertise. Due to the current situation we are mostly working remotely; since your health is our first priority, the interview process and the onboarding can be organised either in person or virtually.
