Full Time


As every CMO knows, employing technology, data and analytics to business challenges is the cost of entry, not a nice to have. Unlocking the value of consumer data can deliver growth, revenue and ROI, and create differentiation to stay on top. Real-time action is instrumental in driving results within a highly fragmented marketplace.


Annalect is the data and analytics division of Omnicom that provides a variety of services to our clients and media agency partners. As a company, we serve as the foundational data and technology layer in which analytics and insights can be accessed through a single lens. Our main goal is to advance our clients’ advertising and marketing strategies through the use of smart data and technology application that unlock insights and drive business results. Annalect’s unique approach to data and technology – one that relies on transparency, neutrality, and interoperability – allows us to deliver purpose-built and scalable solutions that make data actionable. We have teams of analysts, data and marketing scientists, consultants, and technical experts to help us meet the business goals of our clients.


Join our dynamic and diverse team at Annalect – data solutions for marketers, by marketers.


As Omnicom's core marketing orchestration and insights platform, Omni's full suite of applications provides marketers and brands with end-to-end workflow, insights, planning, creative development, activation, reporting, attribution, and optimization solutions. Leveraging data and technology to offer accounts new & powerful audience-forward capabilities, the use and utilization of these tools are integral to Omni's continued success. The long-term success of Omni cannot be measured solely by metrics such as user adoption and revenue growth. Of equal importance is the continued evolution of Omni, as a platform that extends and expands the capabilities of both the client teams and Omnicom as a whole.


The Omni Activation Team sits within this intersection of activation, strategy, and product development, and is looking for a dedicated manager that understands the complexities of data activation at both the account and organizational level. Client teams, under the demands of translating client business challenges into deliverable results, rarely have the bandwidth to take advantage of the full spectrum of resources provided by Omni. The manager must build strong working relationships with these teams. Translating the capabilities of the platform into language applicable to their day-to-day responsibilities, all while working with agency stakeholders in designing data-forward solutions to account-specific problems. To support the demands of increased adoption, activation solutions and standardized processes must be packaged in easily digestible formats and disseminated across Omnicom agencies.
