Associate Media Director

Associate Media Director


At Balcom Agency, we believe great marketing is a marriage of art and science, where insight, creativity and technology work brilliantly together. We’re not your average advertising agency, social media shop, web group or PR firm. We’re all of those things rolled into one.

And we are adding a new position for an associate media director with at least seven years of experience to join our team.


This senior-level media professional will be responsible for research, strategy and overall budget management for multiple clients. He/she will also play an active role in crafting and delivering client presentations and should have strong presentation skills.


  • Assist the media director in the supervision of a team of planner/buyers
  • Prepare and maintain budgets in cooperation with the account team
  • Analyze and interpret campaign data with the digital strategy team to improve performance; facilitate dialogue with internal team and client to optimize campaigns
  • Direct planning/buying negotiations with your assigned accounts
  • Feel comfortable jumping in with your planner/buyers to plan, place or manage digital campaigns – including research, strategy, execution, analysis and reporting/optimizations
  • Develop and present media plans to client stakeholders
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Excel, Word and PowerPoint as well as Google Sheets and Slides
  • Experience with at least one third-party ad server (like DoubleClick, Atlas or Sizmek) preferred
  • Paid social (Facebook, Twitter, etc.) experience and/or The Trade Desk experience
  • All employees must be legally able to work in the United States without Visa sponsorship.


The diversity of our client mix means you’ll never be bored. From tractors to food, from hospitals to festivals, we work with some of the biggest companies in their industries. This position may support more than one client.


As one of the largest advertising and marketing firms in the Tarrant/Dallas area, as well as a top-10 agency on the Dallas Business Journal list, we take work-life balance seriously and offer a full menu of benefits. We have been named a “Best Place to Work” several times and are Blue Zones Project certified as a healthy workplace. We have been recognized with the Governor’s Award by the American Advertising Federation during its Southwest Advertising Hall of Fame ceremony.


We are still working from home. We anticipate returning to a hybrid schedule, although this position will be able to be remote full time, with occasional in-person meetings as necessary. Interviews will be conducted via Google Meet. If selected for the role, you will have an in-person onboarding.
