Join Our Team

Cornerlight Digital is growing and we’re looking for smart, driven people—who are excited about the rapidly changing paid social space—to join our team.

[September 2019 Update: The below role has been filled but we are growing quickly and will be expanding our team in the next 6-12 months. If you are interested in joining our team, please send us a note at so we can consider you for any future roles!]

Paid Social Ads Specialist

We’re looking for an Ads Specialist to come onboard and support our clients’ paid social programs. This is an amazing opportunity for someone with previous paid social experience who is looking to hone their skills in a flexible (and healthy) work environment, gain exciting client experience across verticals, and help shape the future of our agency. The role is a remote position that will begin as part-time but has the ability to quickly develop into a full-time role as we grow.

No two clients or projects are the same. We work with a mix of globally recognized brands, up-and-coming startups, and unique companies that fall somewhere in-between (see client examples here). This means…you’ll constantly be learning in this role—gaining exposure to some of the world’s top brands, while also seeing how businesses operate in their early stages. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to work directly with the founder to shape the future of Cornerlight Digital and help grow our company from the ground up.

TLDR: This isn’t your average agency gig.


  • Manage ad campaign creation, launch, and ongoing optimizations on platforms like Facebook/Instagram (primarily), LinkedIn, Pinterest, Snapchat and Twitter.

  • Daily monitoring of campaigns to ensure performance is meeting prescribed campaign KPIs and that budgets are pacing accurately.

  • Create weekly client-facing excel reports of campaign performance with actionable insights and recommended updates.

  • Manage ad creative delivery and approvals with clients and provide creative best practice recommendations.

  • Field ad hoc client campaign inquiries as needed.


  • 1-2+ years of experience in the paid social space, preferably at an agency.

  • Experience running campaigns via Facebook Ads Manager is a must. Proficiency on other social ad platforms like LinkedIn, Pinterest, Snapchat and Twitter is preferred.

  • Proficiency in excel: Comfort with turning large data sets into client-ready pivot tables is a must!

  • Fundamental understanding of the marketing funnel + digital marketing landscape: We aren’t just a “branding” agency or a “performance marketing” partner. We work with clients to create full-funnel paid social strategies that drive tangible business results.

  • Meticulous attention to detail: No report or email should ever be sent with miscalculations or typos! This also means being an extra set of eyes on all client deliverables, ad creatives, etc. AKA be the copy editor no one asked for :)

  • Demonstrated critical thinking: Ability to effectively translate a “big picture” strategy into day-to-day campaign execution. This also means asking informed questions before diving into a task to ensure accurate and thorough completion.

  • Comfort with client communication: This role will require some client facing communication to start. As we grow, this can develop into a more client-facing Account Manager/Exec position or more of a “behind the scenes” Analyst role depending on team needs and the candidate’s preference.

  • Ability to be flexible and keep up with rapid change: The paid social landscape + ad platforms are changing literally every. single. day. What worked last week may not this week and vice versa.

    • Working in a dynamic industry at a small (but mighty!) company will require a level of flexibility and “roll with the punches” attitude that is fundamentally different from your average 9-5 corporate gig. In turn, your role will also be fundamentally more interesting/exciting than that desk job you may currently be trying to leave.


  • This role will require 15-20 hours per week to start, with the opportunity to quickly develop into a full-time role as we grow!

  • Available during NYC business hours, 9:30am - 6:30pm EST* (i.e. can answer emails, take calls, setup campaigns)

    • *Note: work/life balance is super important to us and this role will provide a more flexible lifestyle than your average agency office job. However, this is a service-based business and every once in a while, unexpected client inquiries will come up outside of these hours. A certain degree of flexibility is required and will always be much appreciated!

  • This is a remote role with opportunity for in-person work sessions if a candidate is NYC-based. Candidates from all locations are encouraged to apply, as long as you are available during NYC business hours.
