Programmatic Executive

We are SMG, the parent company of three small-medium, fast-growing agencies; Capture, Lobster and Threefold, who each have a unique specialism and an unrivalled client list. Across the group, we have a shared vision and mission to lead connected commerce marketing.

Capture provide a one-stop agency solution removing the barriers to great shopper campaigns. Working across all touchpoints that can influence a shopper to buy (from point of sale to programmatic), which in today’s marketing landscape goes far beyond just ‘cardboard in-store’.

  • Good knowledge of display media and digital campaign management.
  • Familiar with digital performance metrics and reporting.

  • Dedicated team player, able to build relationships internally and externally.
  • SEO/SEM & PPC experience desirable.
  • Experience in a growing FMCG or shopper environment.
  • Experience working in a fast paced and matrixed organisation with a solution focused mind-set.
