Director of Performance Marketing

We are Deutsch LA, a data-inspired, culturally shaped, creative studio. We live at the intersection of entertainment, technology, and culture. Shaped by the creative legacy of Hollywood and the smarts of Silicon Beach.  We work in the heart of LA. A city that drives culture in America and around the world. We operate a little differently than an ad agency. Because we’re equal parts data, media, tech, design, and storytelling – with our own state-of-the-art production facility at the core – our ideas are powered by insights, backed with data, and made to scale.

·       Collaborate and integrate through full funnel workstream and content.

·       Lead the full performance marketing workstream – from working with media to define the assets needed, developing the strategy, creating hypotheses for testing and experimentation, guiding the creative team to create the right content, and partnering with analysts to determine how to optimize the creative.  
·       Create clear and actionable frameworks (and other artifacts) for how to implement performance marketing programs.
·       Ensure team deliverables are coordinated and met in a timely, rigorous, and accurate fashion.
·       15+ years of experience, with a focus on acquisition, performance, or direct response marketing.
