Director, Paid Search Marketing

Klik Media is a startup on a mission to change the ad agency world. We create revenue for the organizations we partner with, from ed-tech giant 2U to [solidcore] in the fitness industry.

You would be our first hire in Chicago, and focus on building a strong SEM team in-person while managing our Arlington, VA HQ team.

We're looking for a Search Marketing Director to help lead the growth of our internal Paid Search team.

The ideal candidate has experience working across Google Search, Google Shopping, Bing, and other channels, and is ready to help build a world-class search team.
