Sr. Digital Strategist at MediaMonks HQ
MediaMonks is hiring a Dutch + English-speaking strategist who combines research and rigour to develop effective strategies for achieving digital success. We’re not looking for a digital marketer or a social media ‘guru’ but for someone who can identify the strategic direction brands and businesses should take in the digital space.
Role & Responsibilities
- Working from the MediaMonks Mothership in Hilversum, you’ll join our dedicated creative–business unit for European clients such as Heineken, Jacobs Douwe Egberts and Philips.
- As our go-to Monk for digital strategy, you’ll play a central role in pitching for new projects and the strategic development of existing projects.
- Working on behalf of Europe’s leading agencies and brands, you’ll help establish the strategic foundation for digital campaigns, brand sites, apps and other award-winning projects.
- Expanding upon the brand strategy, you’ll work with the client team to develop the digital strategy, identifying what needs to be achieved and providing directions for how to achieve it.
- You’ll run workshops together with our clients — or whatever we’re calling meetings these days — to gather the key objectives, requirements and other success markers.
- Based on original research, you define the strategic scope and brief that allows our creative teams to excel, laying the groundwork on which successful projects can be built.
- You turn the problem into a plan by writing actionable project briefs; grounded in data and elevated by insights.
- Validating insights and ideas at every turn, you help to ensure the solutions we develop impact the client’s business in the best possible way, taking into account objectives as well as opportunity costs.
Become Our Digital Strategy Monk
As part of MediaMonks, you’ll be part of the most awesome production company on the planet, operating as ‘one office in eleven locations’ with 800 Monks and counting. In addition to an unlimited supply of A-list clients, A+ colleagues and A-OK coffee, MediaMonks means working at a truly international company creative people would kill to work for. If you meet the profile, we’d love to meet you to tell you more about our super-fast-moving company, and the things we love outside work and winter sports.
Please be attentive to the requirements and accompany your application with a custom cover letter detailing why you’re the right Monk for this job.
- For this senior-level role, we’re looking for someone with 5+ years of high-level experience developing digital strategies on behalf of high-profile brands.
- You’re not a brand-strategist-doing-digital but a true digital strategist who understands the online landscape through and through.
- You have functional market research skills (benchmarking, expert analysis, trend research) and know about the good, the bad and the ugly of digital products and advertising.
- In addition to Dutch and English, you talk business and technology at a high strategic level: you know how to steer big organisations through digital transformations.
- Your critical understanding of the digital landscape and trends enables you to ask the right questions and better-define what needs to be achieved in the first place.
- You can quickly grasp brands’ digital business objectives, and you don’t just know where to go but also why, and how to get there.
- You’re equally capable and confident when it comes to presenting digital strategies to A-list clients, up to the C-level.
- You can provide solid strategic advice even under tight deadlines, tactfully narrowing the scope if need be instead of lowering the quality.
- You have a drive for creating clear and actionable strategy proposals and debriefs that are free of needless jargon and empty words, going beyond the obvious without slipping into the pitfall of bullshit.
- Your strategies are not just really good but also realistic; you have a clear understanding of what is needed to produce digital work.
- Last but not least, you’re a joy to work with: you’re great with clients and coworkers alike and know how inspire teams to go the extra mile.
