Senior Media Buyer

AdaptiveBee creates web products for mobile and desktop users. We work together to build amazing structures and create a personalized user experience for each individual. At AdaptiveBee, we believe the web should adapt to users, not the other way around. 

Like the good worker bees we are, we spend a lot of time in hexagons (France = l'Hexagone)! 


What to expect?

A Senior Media Buyer Specialist at adaptivebee is essentially handling 3 main tasks:

  • First job is to seek out new traffic sources. Where to buy traffic from, what are the media channels to buy from. You become a strategist, and a planner on those places.
  • Second job is to follow up on these traffic sources and negotiate. Once you find out where you want to buy, relentlessly find a representative there and become friends with him or her. Then get a pricing that works for our client.
  • Third job is to manage the account. If the ROI isn't working out, you'll need to renegotiate with the representative to figure out a win-win. If the traffic source needs some new advertising creatives, you'll have to get the new creatives from the in-house copywriters and send it their way.
