This is NOT a Social Media role - it's Digital Media/Ops!

Our client, a leading marketing and advertising agency, needs a Digital Ops Associate to join their team full-time onsite at their office in Morris County (not easily commutable by public transportation). They are also open to freelance to full-time and, for the right candidate, they can offer 1 or 2 work from home days/week.

Their office is modern and the culture is fun; between the robust benefits plan and the free drinks and snacks plus other perks (free gym!), it's an opportunity not to be missed.

Agency experience is key but not mandatory; the media team will train someone who doesn't have everything they want but someone with experience supporting the operations of the media team at an agency that is doing digital media will be a strong fit.
