The strategy team at Hawke is the embodiment of our tagline: Your Outsourced CMO. When looking at this team and a role within it, we're looking for someone with a solid grasp of marketing in general, with a passion for applying that to a digital space; the background to back that up is an excellent add, mind you. The team works with a myriad of clients - typically 5-8 at a given time - and the work ranges from startups with a dollar and a dream all the way up to multinational corporations looking to scale their next launch or to optimize their presence and brand.
When fully up to speed, you can expect to be the primary point of contact with your clients, to deliver competitive analyses, to craft brand positioning research and statements, to guide messaging creation and ideation, and to build full funnel marketing strategies that include channels, spends, and headcount recommendations. We are committed to being platform agnostic, and we approach all of our marketing efforts with an omnichannel focus, and nothing is off limits or off the table in terms of what we can tackle and advise on or around.
At Hawke we like to say "You're going to talk the talk and walk the walk" meaning you're not only the person speaking with the client but also the one executing the work that will lead to the client's success which means first-class communication skills are non-negotiable. This person should be flexible, organized and ready to roll up their sleeves anytime a new challenge arises-- and let me be the first to tell you, there are going to be some really bad days (see below.)
As you can imagine, agency life isn't for everyone. Everybody at Hawke is familiar with angry clients, with bummer days, and with getting bucked off the horse from time to time. We have built a business and structure that enables us to learn quickly, rebound even faster, and take things in stride with the goal of serving our clients. You can expect fast paced days, a wide variety of clients and styles, and a team that is just as committed to producing rad work as you are.

An Insider's view of Hawke Media

What are some social events your company does?

Hawke has monthly Happy Hours at our West LA HQ showcasing new initiatives each month. Quarterly, we host Brand Alchemy in NY & LA, an event series focused on the cross-section of marketing and talent that accelerate growth. Annually, Hawkefest invites eCommerce executives to a day of collaboration and programming with industry thought leaders.


Experiential and Event Marketing Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I love having complete control over how my day is scheduled. I don’t have a “typical day” because every day is so different. Some days I’m sitting (or standing!) at a desk doing phone interviews, and some days I’m working on a side project for the recruiting team while lounging on the couch- yay WFH!


Senior Talent Acquisition Partner

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Honestly, my career has grown so much since joining Hawke just five months ago! Since joining the Lifecycle team, my skills have grown in SMS marketing, loyalty & rewards programs, CODING, mastered several new CRMs and ESPs, and added new client-facing skills.



How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

When a team feels comfortable sharing their challenges, wins, and even parts of their personal lives with each other, you're able to build a team culture where accessibility is tied with honesty, transparency, and a shared sense of purpose. There's no need for “my door is always open” because that is obvious through my actions and our interactions.


EVP | Finance

What are some social events your company does?

Since the transition to WFH, Hawke Media has become very creative with hosting social events for us. On Wednesday's and Friday's we play games on Zoom like Trivia and Pictionary where we can earn Amazon gift cards! I look forward to these because it is a great chance to interact with other people in the company in a non meeting setting.
