  • Understanding of basic paid media research tools including Nielsen ratings goes without saying.
  • You have a broad knowledge of all paid media including but not limited to television, radio, newspaper, magazine, out-of-home, and digital.

  • Flexibility and leadership is huge.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication and presentation skills.
  • You possess thorough knowledge of marketing and advertising principles; understanding media concepts and terminology.

Compensation and Benefits

  • Salary—We recognize that our people are our greatest asset. We reward candidates who wow us by offering competitive pay.
  • Vacation—Paid holidays are a no brainer, but how does unlimited, paid vacation sound? Salaried employees of Firespring are encouraged to take what they need when it comes to time off in order to live their best and healthiest lives.
  • 401(k)—Your parents preached about the importance of saving. Now were helping you get it done. Firespring provides professional financial advisors who will help you make a plan and guide your investments.
  • Fun—Millions of people go to work, punch the clock from 8 to 5 and hate every moment of it. That’s not the case here. We prioritize loving your experience here and have a group of people dedicated to creating activities inside and outside the office. To put it mildly, we’re serious about having fun and it reflects in our work and the relationships too.
  • Positive Community Impact—When your employer makes it possible for you to contribute to your community on the clock? Win for everyone. Every Firespring team member gets one paid day off each month to volunteer in any way they’d like.
  • Miscellaneous Benefits—Not all benefits are about the Benjamins, baby. Some of the things you’ll enjoy while working here include unlimited soft drinks, tea and beer. If you require a flexible schedule, your manager is all ears.
