Digital Marketing - Senior Acquisition Manager

| Chicago

At Cisco Meraki, we know that technology can connect us, empower us, and drive us. By simplifying powerful technology we can free passionate people to focus on their mission. As the fastest growing cloud-managed team in the world, our products and technology architecture are changing the face of enterprise networking and making cloud-managed IT a reality.

We’re seeking a Senior Digital Marketing Manager to join our Digital Marketing team to help run and optimize our paid digital advertising efforts in our in-house growth agency. If you’re growth-minded, excited about running tests, experimenting, and using paid digital campaigns to increase leads and sales, we want to talk to you.

Your day-to-day will involve running and optimizing ads on channels like paid search, display, and social. You’ll meet with other marketing stakeholders to plan new demand generation campaigns with our campaign strategists and report on effectiveness across channels, campaigns, and ad variations. You should have a strong grasp of digital advertising tools and the strategic levers you can pull to increase campaign effectiveness. You’ll also be a liaison to our external agency and other digital marketers within Cisco. You’ll also develop your management skills by helping us build a small but effective team in the coming fiscal year.

You’re a collaborative digital professional that knows you need to work transparently across different skills and personality types to have the most impact on our business. You have experience managing projects from concept to completion. You might not have managed anyone yet but you’re ready to take on the responsibility of growing a team and setting them up for success. You take pride in your work and have some fun while you do it.

This role is based in either our San Francisco or Chicago office.
