Allen & Gerritsen Senior Media Planner in BOSTON, Massachusetts

Allen & Gerritsen isn’t like other agencies. We know what you’re thinking: “Are they really different from other agencies?” We can humbly say “Yes.” You see, we do media a bit differently around here. We think strategically at all times. We are fascinated by audiences & how they engage with the world around them. We think analytically, insisting we all understand outcomes first, & plan accordingly. Our team comes from a variety of agency backgrounds spanning the biggest holding companies to smaller niche independent agencies. Of course we navigate all of the traditional core elements of media planning & buying: reach/frequency, time spent, targeting efficiency & so on. But what differentiates our team is our deeper understanding of the emotional relationships our audiences have with the environments where we communicate, & how that can affect the impact of our message. We call it Humanity Planning & it helps us to craft better, smarter & more effective integrated media plans for our clients. This role offers you a chance to grow your existing skills, but continue to learn within a fully integrated agency, all with a unique approach to planning. Your ideas will not only be valued, but encouraged. You’ll be an integral part of an amazingly talented team, not someone siloed exclusively in finance tasks & trafficking duties.  Let’s see what you’ve got.
