Media Planner – New York


The role

Podcast and radio partnerships are a growing part of TransferWise’s growth. In fact, they’re the fastest-growing part of our marketing operations.

We’re looking for a media planner to help us grow this channel. Your primary responsibility will be to develop a strategy for growing our podcast and radio sponsorship program – across the US initially, but with a longer term view to how we take our coverage to a global audience.

You’ll be the person spreading the word about TransferWise through the airwaves to help save people money, time and hassle.


The key responsibilities:

  • Optimize our existing sponsorship program by identifying where we can make smart gains in our creatives and campaign planning
  • Identify our key target audiences – and the best way how to reach them
  • Curate our creative! You will work with our copy team to tailor the TransferWise message so that we’re speaking to the right audiences in the way that’s right for them to learn about us
  • Experiment with new platforms – we’ve just scratched the surface of what we can do with audio advertising
  • Create a plan for TransferWise to invest in non-English language radio and podcast shows
  • Analyze how shows are performing to ensure our advertising program is running sustainably
  • Improve our ability to track, measure and understand the impact of our advertising plan.


Skills or knowledge that’ll help you succeed in this role:

  • A love of all things radio and podcasts. You know what people are listening to!
  • You know the audio industry and how to get the right media plan
  • You’ve got an analytical approach – you are able to dig into the numbers and work out what’s working and what needs changing
  • You are a self-starter and you’re proactive when it comes to identifying problems, finding solutions and communicating that to the team.


This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Choose your own path to success - you’ll have the freedom to define the vision and the responsibility for making it happen
  • Set the plan and own it: You will be setting the plan, figuring out what works and reporting that work back to the company.
  • Be flexible in how and where you work - we understand everyone needs a little something different so we’ll do our best to make it happen


What we offer:

  • Competitive package including salary, stock options, and company matches to a 401k plan
  • Generous paid time off policy (24 days), including an all-expenses-paid company holiday in Europe
  • A paid sabbatical after a certain period of time in the company
  • Travel to and work with teams in our offices around the world
  • Peace of mind with terrific medical, dental, and vision plans alongside family leave
  • Many social events, including weekly team lunches, Swedish coffee time, monthly team events, and more
  • A monthly gym stipend and commuter benefits


Please note:  You must have the right to work in the US to be considered for the role. We cannot offer visa sponsorship for this position.

Some important stuff we would like you to know

To meet our regulatory obligations as a licensed financial services company, TransferWise needs to take background checks on all new hires, which may include Criminal and Credit checks. Please discuss with the Recruiter if you have any concerns regarding this process.

At TransferWise we believe in fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace. Therefore, we want to make sure that our recruitment process is accessible to everyone. So if you need any reasonable adjustments – at any point in the process – we’ll do our best to help. Just let us know what you need on your application form or reply with your request to the email we send you after you have applied. You might need a reasonable adjustment if you’ve got a disability. Or maybe you live overseas, and you’d prefer to meet us over Skype.

Please don’t send anything to the adjustments address if you’re a recruiter, or if you’re making a speculative application. We do work with recruiters from time to time – but only through LinkedIn. And we only accept job applications when a position is actually open. So you’re better off just checking the recruitment pages regularly.
