Summary

GumGum is a contextual-first global advertising technology company that captures people’s attention, without the use of personal data. We believe that a digital advertising ecosystem based on understanding a consumer’s active frame of mind rather than behavior builds a more equitable and safer future for consumers, publishers and advertisers alike. Founded in 2008, GumGum is headquartered in Santa Monica, California and operates in 19 markets worldwide. For more information, visit gumgum.com.

Campaign Managers are individual contributors who understand a campaign’s cycle at the top level with a project manager focus and a cross-departmental approach. The main objective of the Campaign Manager’s role is to ensure the campaign's overall success while working closely with our Strategy, Account Management, Design, and Advertising Operations teams.

The Campaign Manager is in an advantageous position to actively help streamline, expedite, and increase the efficiency of the campaign operations cycle while aligning with standard processes and enforcing SLAs while also providing insights and overall knowledge to the broader organization.

Note: GumGum currently operates in a ‘work from home’ virtual environment with sporadic opportunities for in-person business and morale events (health guidelines permitting). There will not be any requirement to go into the office on a daily basis moving forward.
