*COVID-19 Update

Out of an abundance of caution for the current situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are offering a completely virtual hiring process; this means all your interview steps will be completed via phone or video meeting. We also offer work from home, with the understanding that in the future this role may transition to an in-office, onsite position in our Salt Lake City office. While our day-to-day approach has changed a bit during this time, our dedication to hiring the best talent in the industry and helping them to thrive both personally and professionally is stronger than ever.

Who We’re Looking For – Senior Paid Media Specialist

If you love building paid media campaigns, seeing the impact of your work, and collaborating with other hardworking and smart humans, then this opportunity is for you.

The Consumer Brands division within Clearlink helps millions of people find and compare the best product for their needs. We’ve experienced significant growth in recent years, and we’re adding a paid media ace to the mix.
