Employment Type Full-Time
Minimum Experience Experienced

We’re seeking extraordinary people who want to contribute to a fast-growing digital marketing agency with a proven track record of success for clients around the world.

As a Paid Search Strategist, you’ll set the optimal digital advertising strategy for the account management teams to hit our clients’ performance goals.  These goals are virtually always related to direct business impacts like lead generation and e-commerce sales.  You will also be responsible for ad campaign management, whether working with a team or by yourself, depending on the account.

Team members carry a great work-life balance and directly make an impact on our company as well as the lives of our clients, communities, and fellow team members. 

Why Work at DOM?

At a mid-sized agency, you have the opportunity to move the needle more than at a larger agency. Plus, you get to be part of a team of talented, hard-working individuals.  We take our ‘No Jerks’ policy seriously here.

DOM is in the top 2% of all Google partner agencies worldwide, helping our clients grow their businesses through pay-per-click advertising, search engine optimization, social media advertising, and other forms of digital advertising.  We’re a stable (established 2006) and growing leader delivering excellent results to our clients who say things like:

  • “DOM constantly pushes the envelope.  They’re great communicators and are fun to work with, too.”
  • “Working with DOM is like working with colleagues who have our company’s best interest at heart.”
  • “I’m approached daily by other digital marketing agencies who want to pitch their company to me, but I never consider anyone else.”

We offer a competitive package that includes health, dental, vision, and short-term disability insurance; 401(k) with company match; and annual profit sharing.

About the Position

Our clients rely on DOM to help them meet direct marketing goals such as increasing leads or driving e-commerce sales. You will be responsible for developing and modifying strategic digital advertising plans to help them reach their goals.

You will set and communicate this strategy with the DOM team of Client Success Managers, Account Managers, Coordinators, and Analysts, as well as clients as needed.

In addition to setting the strategy, for some accounts you will also be responsible for either fully managing accounts or working in conjunction with other team members, depending on scope.

Day-to-day work includes:

  • Developing and executing well-planned search engine and other digital advertising strategies for a variety of clients
  • Proactively modifying strategies monthly and as needed based on the performance of major KPIs, account metrics, or client needs
  • Working with clients on developing or refining strategic goals during onboarding and throughout campaigns
  • Building benchmarks and KPIs
  • Developing and executing experiments for all relevant digital advertising tactics, channels, and other elements
  • Clearly communicating the progress of strategic plans to meet outlined objectives both internally and, as needed, externally
  • Researching and testing platforms, software, and tools

This full-time position operates as a hybrid with an in-office component of 1-3 days per week in our Pittsburgh, PA office.
