We are looking for a strategic, analytical Digital Marketing Manager to lead SEM for the Nestle Health Science portfolio of brands, including but not limited to: Google, YouTube, Bing and Affiliates. This role will build processes and procedures to efficiently manage SEM across the portfolio with the support of agencies, but also with a rapid-response, hands-on-keyboard capability. The ideal candidate has deep SEM experience on Google, including in-platform campaign management, but is also capable of leading a team and building out a function. This role requires a candidate comfortable in operating in an ambiguous, fast-paced environment. 


This critical role will focus on scaling paid search & affiliate strategies across a diverse portfolio of brands both large and small, focused on vitamins, supplements and active nutrition (Garden of Life, Vital Proteins, Nuun, Persona, Puritan’s Pride and more.) This lead will work closely with the brands to develop an SEM strategy, and on the portfolio level to maximize brand growth through keyword/share of voice ownership prioritization. This role will be responsible for the SEM portfolio budget across brands and a key contributor to the brands yearly/quarterly media investment strategies. In addition, this lead will be responsible for building a vision and long-term roadmap for their team’s continued growth and success.


The ideal candidate will have proven experience translating performance data into actionable digital marketing strategies, advocating for strategic budget shifts based on performance data, managing significant budgets focused on business outcomes and working with both internal partners and media agencies to see their vision through to market.


To be successful, the Digital Marketing Manager will need to thrive working autonomously, building powerful cross-functional relationships and turning analytics into actionable marketing strategies. The ideal candidate will be excited to build a program from scratch and test their way into the ideal operating model.
