Posted on: April 9, 2021
DNA is an independent creative agency in the
Metropolis-meets-Mother-Nature hotbed of Seattle. Our thing? We
make love between people and brands. How do we do it? By helping
brands be entertaining, engaging, relevant and useful, day in and
day out. What it requires of us is curiosity, courage, talent,
honesty, hard work and a healthy dose of magic. At DNA, we have a
'maker' mentality where creativity lives in every department, where
new voices and perspectives are nurtured, and we never, ever forget
that the work is the boss. Associate Media Director Overview You're
an experienced, integrated media professional that will oversee our
media team of Supervisors and Planners. You see being in a
full-service creative shop as a competitive advantage and
advantageous to building a better media plan. You're not just
looking to fit in, but to both contribute and lead accounts. As AMD
at DNA you are both strategic and willing to roll up your sleeves
and get into the work. You'll work directly with clients, train
your team, develop strategies, plans and buys, and execute like the
world class media pro you are. You'll actively contribute to the
growth of your colleagues, ideas, client business, and the agency
as a whole. Being a leader also means you understand and appreciate
the value of being a good partner. You'll partner with your media
colleagues and your cross-department lines to truly integrate with
strategy, creative, design and any other part of our DNA family
that helps us do more meaningful work. Externally, you embrace the
opportunity to build trust and partnerships with clients, never
settling for being just another media team. Likewise, you're making
every effort to make media vendors, sales reps and strategic
partners feel like an extension of our team, developing the
relationships that will help deliver your clients the very best
(and newest) ideas. You will report directly to the Director of
Media and Communications Planning. Role and Responsibilities As

clients- with varying needs, responsibilities and staffing support.

DNA's integrated process, bringing critical and strategic media
thinking to briefs, working closely with creative teams to help
energize and amplify their ideas, and build best-in-class media
plans with both relevant and impactful placements that deliver on
client business goals. In doing so, you'll foster meaningful
