I’m Mike, Search Engine Marketing Director here at Klick Health. Our paid search business is growing quickly and it’s time to add a new team member before those 3-4 new drugs our clients have been working on get launched and the team I’ve got goes from busy to buried. That’s where you come in.

I’m looking for an SEM Specialist at an intermediate level for this high impact role, which is part of our Media Practice. Joining my team will feel right for you if you are passionate about driving results for clients. You will be responsible for keyword and copy development, as well as campaign management of paid search programs to help our Pharma clients reach patients and healthcare providers across the US.

You’ll take a collaborative approach to optimizing and integrating your efforts with our Media Planning, Analytics and Web Development teams. We need someone who brings 1-3 years of SEM campaign management experience to the table or has completed a digital marketing program through College or University. You’ll understand that search is so much more than the obvious, extending beyond the desktop; beyond Google. The SEM Specialist knows all the vendors inside out and will be expected to apply their knowledge to manage day-to-day operations of the accounts as well as identify opportunities that help evolve brands marketing efforts.


    • Managing campaign spends to pace with target budgets
    • Reviewing data to discover opportunities to optimize performance
    • Keyword research and ad copy development
    • Reporting on results and providing clients with valuable insights and recommendations


    • High proficiency with Microsoft Excel & Google Sheets
    • Familiar with Google Ads and Microsoft Advertising interfaces
    • Familiar with Google Ads Editor and Microsoft Advertising Desktop software
    • Excellent communication skills
    • High level of comfort working with data
    • Ability to learn quickly and adjust easily to a demanding environment
When we meet, I want to hear about your experience managing SEM campaigns that drive results, and about your approach to analyzing and reporting on those results and using that info to continually improve what you do. I’d like to find about a time when you really stepped up as an SEM expert and blew the client’s mind – we work in a highly regulated industry, so if you can tie your experience back to something similar, I’d be very impressed. I’d also really like to find out about what you love and hate in the agency world and to see if we click. Ready to step up your game and do the best work of your life?

This is a place where there are few barriers between ideas and execution, so long as you’ve got the skills and passion to carry them out.
