Ad / Paid Acquisition Specialist

Tangoo - Vancouver & Toronto


About You:

Your Situation:

You’re either a couple years into your professional marketing career or you’re fairly seasoned (3-5 years+) in Facebook and Google Advertising. You’re currently contracting and like to try before you buy, that is, you’re looking to join a dynamic team one day but you want to feel them out first by working on some kickass projects.

You want to work on a team where you’re not the most knowledgeable digital marketer and you can lean on others to help you solve complex problems while you reciprocate and share your knowledge. You like to travel and work on your schedule so having a team to hold down the fort while you unplug is important for you.

Your Attitude & Your Approach To Work:

You love the intersection of art and science within performance advertising and are always looking to combine the best copy and media content with the ideal audience. You are resourceful and understand that it’s on you to make things happen and ask for help when you need it.

You’re candid, can take criticism well, and always see the glass half full. You are unusually curious; you love to ask why. You’re never satisfied with the status quo. You love to learn, and you are obsessed with understanding customers and their digital needs.


As a Paid Acquisition Digital Marketing Specialist, you focus both on executing paid advertising campaigns and interfacing directly with the client and/or a Tangoo account manager to communicate your strategy, field feedback, and new campaigns you believe drive more value. You are comfortable handling the entire process with the client and are proactive to seek help from the Tangoo team for more sophisticated skills like Photo/Video, SEO, Influencer Marketing, and other more specialized and complementary skills.
