In Boston, we need a

Media Planner

Do you like to explore work that has never been done before? Do you like to push the boundaries of what’s possible? Are you a person who knows about a lot, but realizes there is still so much more to learn? Do you jump at the chance to explore unknown territory & problem solve? Then we’re looking for you to join our media team! Allen & Gerritsen isn’t like other agencies. We know what you’re thinking: “Are they really different from other agencies?” We can humbly say “Yes.” You see, we do media a bit differently around here. We think strategically at all times. We are fascinated by audiences & how they engage with the world around them. We think analytically, insisting we all understand outcomes first, & plan accordingly. Our team comes from a variety of agency backgrounds spanning the biggest holding companies to smaller niche independent agencies, but we’re all here at A&G because of the unique culture & the expansive opportunities to be bold while we thrive & grow as media professionals. Of course we navigate all of the traditional core elements of media planning & buying: reach/frequency, time spent, targeting efficiency & so on. But what differentiates our team is our deeper understanding of the emotional relationships our audiences have with the environments where we communicate, & how that can affect the impact of our message. We call it Humanity Planning & it helps us to craft better, smarter & more effective integrated media plans for our clients. This role offers you a chance to grow your existing skills, but continue to learn within a fully integrated agency, all with a unique approach to planning. Your ideas will not only be valued, but encouraged. You’ll be an integral part of an amazingly talented team, not someone siloed exclusively in finance tasks & trafficking duties. From social media, to paid search, to TV, to out-of-home, to unique content partnerships & beyond. We’re a full-service independent ad agency, so expect exposure to other key disciplines such as creative, analytics, public relations, & brand strategy. Let’s see what you’ve got.
