  • Show your style, lots of energy and a positive mindset

  • Own your projects and get (sh)it done

  • Value quality over quantity,

  • Invest in people and 'pay it forward'

Your average working day might look like this

You head to our HQ's early. Being in your best mood, zipping a double espresso, you dive straight into yesterday’s campaign results:

How many people did we reach yesterday? What was the click through rate? Did we boost sales? Are we behind or ahead of schedule? Since you're happy with the results, you instantly decide to inform some stakeholders!

Having optimised a few campaigns in the morning, you decide to do some in-depth research of Facebook's new gimmicks or work on your client’s campaign dashboard. You are convinced you are able to present data about campaign results in new ways that are quick and easy to understand and look stunning.


After an hour or so, you grab a sandwich with a few colleagues. You just can’t help but show your ideas to see if the new dashboard gets them all excited too :-)

Later that afternoon you share the results of your first few tests on Facebook's new tooling with the rest of Direct Impact's bright minds. This way, you can be sure everyone is updated on the newest developments in the social advertising business.

Since the company will expand Internationally even quicker than you thought, you might soon be leading the SEA team responsible for getting their products launched in two new markets! Feeling super stoked, you give Direct Impact HQ’s a call on your way home to discuss the fantastic opportunity.
