At FKA, the people you work with matter more than anything else. That includes you — our new Traffic Manager.
FKA is one of Canada’s fastest-growing companies — ranking 150 on the 2018 GROWTH 500 list. We boast a stellar team of 31, who are some of the best and brightest in the business and have over 170 years of combined experience. But we’re always striving to be better, which is where you come in!
In this role, your attention to detail will shine as you keep track of tasks and timelines, adapt to changing requests and keep a complex team running like a well-oiled machine. You’re as comfortable figuring out the steps to take a digital creative project to completion as you are scheduling video or broadcast work. Reporting to the Senior Director of Service Delivery, your rock-solid organizational and multi-tasking skills instill confidence among your colleagues. And of course, you thrive in a fast-moving, agile environment.
You have a minimum of five years of experience, preferably in an advertising or interactive agency; publisher or broadcaster; or large client-side marketing department. Relevant education in business, marketing or project management would be great but is not mandatory.
We’re seeking individuals inspired to innovate new processes and operational approaches to help FKA and the clients we serve reach their objectives and solve their business problems. We are wholeheartedly dedicated to the development of a collaborative environment underpinned by a culture of support.
