About the Opportunity

Hearts & Science is challenging the way to think about media planning.  We are a bunch of hungry people from very different backgrounds aiming to make Hearts an agency of the future. We started three years ago from scratch - with ambitious goals and a mission to find likeminded brands to be partnering with and developing fresh approaches that merge media, tech and creative.

We predominantly work for challenger brands that have successfully disrupted the business they are in, coming from all kinds of different industries. And we will be stepping on a global scale in 2021. Things turned out pretty well we’d say – purely because of the passionate team behind Hearts.

This is one of the first times we ever take Group Manager applications. You’ll be a key factor in developing your team members, but also working deeply in the trenches, pitching your ideas to clients and bringing them to life. With no fear of failing forward. We love developing ideas that both excite and scare us – it is about embracing these to really manifest our agency philosophy. With a team that’s comparatively small yet love what they do. We want to get stuff done with you and can’t wait for the energy you’ll be bringing to the team.

Things like employee benefits, frequent home office opportunity and flexible core working hours are common sense to us – however that doesn’t make them any less important and we’re happy to talk through all of them in our first meeting and make sure we can offer you a job that fits to your living situation.

In this role, you will? [#762616]

  • Become one of our first Group Managers and help the more junior team members to improve and get better at what they do.
  • Guide your team to develop integrated communication campaigns - from strategic planning to bringing it to life.
  • Bring together offline and online channels planning strategies from TV to E-Commerce optimizations or media channels we haven’t even been finding a name for yet.
  • You work together directly with our clients from various backgrounds and become their valued advisor.
  • You pull the strings and make sure we deliver our best work to every brief – this also includes steering projects across speciality units internally, in cooperation with other agencies and partners.
  • Success needs to be measurable: You develop client-specific measurement frameworks, analysis and presentations together with the team.
  • You have even more ideas how to bring value to our clients? Perfect!

What you need to be successful?

  • 3-10 years of experience in media and comms planning, ideally in a media agency or on client side.
  • You know your craft by heart, from TV net reach curves to opportunities different DSPs can unlock for our clients.
  • Curiosity is key. You’ll have the chance to thrive in an environment with little limitations and curiosity will help you immensely.
  • Despite your experience you have an open mind and are open to do things differently. Just because “it has always been that way” doesn’t mean we can’t change or try new approaches.
  • You can take responsibility and have been leading a small team of 2-5 people before – even more important, you enjoyed doing it.
  • Your English is excellent both spoken and in written form. German is also very helpful in this role as you might be collaborating with clients/partners more comfortable in German.
  • You can think like you’re the business owner – to benefit the agency development and as well put yourself in the shoes of our clients.
  • You are keen to become a central part of a team in the making. You have the necessary drive to not only be employee XY but become a vital part of Hearts & Science 2021 and beyond!

If you feel like Hearts & Science might be something for you, please send us your good reason to be part of the team and a CV. We cannot wait to get to know you!
