SEM Specialist

Are you a motivated SEM marketing professional that enjoys relationship management and has a real passion for telling stories with data?

Who is Full Measure Digital?

Full Measure Digital started life as a small consulting project back in 2010. Nine years later, we are one of Australia’s leading SEO and SEM agencies, taking pride in the work we do for our long list of clients: everyone from owner-operated small businesses up to industry leaders like Jetstar and Myer.

Our vision is simple: to be the best SEM and SEO agency in Australia at delivering our clients tangible, profitable business growth. We do that by hiring the best team, deeply understanding our clients’ businesses, genuinely caring about their results, and constantly driving growth based on data-driven marketing.

What you’ll be doing

From day 1 you will take over the strategy, day-to-day management and optimisation of our SEM clients – to make it your own and make changes as you see fit. You will be a fresh set of eyes on well established, long running campaigns.

You will start by unpacking a client’s marketing problem and learning about their customers through keyword, competitor and audience research. Then you’ll be deep diving into the account, identifying potential SEM problems and opportunities to deliver on a diverse range of client needs.

For new clients, you will be in charge of end to end client builds or restructures, so you can set the foundations for optimal campaign performance.

You will be responsible for optimising one of the strongest performing marketing channels for our clients by ensuring traffic acquired from Google and other performance marketing channels meets client’s performance goals. You will be constantly pushing the limits, trying new things that haven’t been done before and looking for opportunities to drive value.

With your in-depth knowledge on audience development, you will move users through the customer journey by intelligently marketing and remarketing to them. You will also be involved with business development and improving internal processes.

You will be creating and maintaining dashboards and reports that match up with client goals. Using data, you will be pulling out meaningful insights that matter to the client. You will know what information to call out and how to explain why this matters to their business’ bottom line.

Together with the Account Director, you are expected to build and maintain genuine relationships with all the people you deal with. Our team and clients will depend on you for troubleshooting day-to-day SEM issues.

Potentially, you will be supervising, training and mentoring junior team members which will involve allocating tasks, overseeing quality control and conducting performance reviews.

What we’re looking for

You project a quiet confidence and prefer to let your strong SEM knowledge and work speak for itself.

Some people might say you’re a little OCD. You enjoy building out meticulously tightly-themed accounts with a highly organized hierarchy so it’s ready for search query and creative optimisation. You believe in carefully checking the accuracy of your tracking and attribution so you can have full confidence in the data you are sharing.

You are committed to squeeze every ounce of value from your SEM budget with granular targeting and constant fine tuning.

You aren’t afraid of wrangling large data sets to make it work for you. You thrive in Excel and genuinely enjoy working out what’s going on in there and other data visualisation tools.

You have insights on how the auction mechanism works so you know how to push it to its limits to achieve our client’s goals, using a combination of automated and manual optimisation techniques.

Coming up with the solution is only half the job. You are well spoken, and can translate SEM speak into layman’s terms. You are a persuasive storyteller that can explain your SEM insights to a non-technical client so they can be on-board with your recommendations and help you action them in their organisation.

You enjoy problem solving: connecting the SEM dots with marketing and business matters. You treat a client’s budget as if it was your own money.

You have a curious mind. Always having a thirst for learning more. You have an authentic passion for search technology and digital marketing.

You are comfortable in managing your own workload, proactively taking on projects and tasks, and making informed choices in a timely manner.

Need to have:

  • 2+ years experience in a position where you’ve been responsible for SEM and can demonstrate positive SEM results
  • Experience with using 3rd party management platforms like SA360, Kenshoo, or Marin
  • Know how to pull data out of Google Analytics and/or Adobe Analytics, and tell a story with the data
  • You are an Australian citizen or permanent resident

Bonus points if you have any of the following experience: 

  • Agency/client services
  • DMP
  • Attribution modeling
