NBCUniversal, LLC, New York, New York

Create the extraordinary.

Level: Manager (Supervisor)


As a marketplace leader, NBCUniversal Advertising Sales & Partnerships prides itself on its success in building solutions which have helped to reshape the industry. In 2022, a key priority of Ad Sales is to elevate our industry-leading team of Insights and Research professionals by providing the marketplace with a deep understanding of consumer perceptions and behaviors designed to help our clients meet their business objectives.

In response to this business goal, we have organized the Insights & Research team to focus on areas of expertise and of value to our clients. The Vice President of Media Engagement, with their team, will produce research that examines as well as understands how content and contextual relevance influences brand affinity for advertising partners, as well as how the connection to NBCU’s intellectual property impacts the customer journey. This role will require an individual who excels at turning data into a narrative.

The VP will be responsible for leading a team of researchers who will set the strategy and develop an annual calendar of insights for distribution, internally and externally. This leader should be as comfortable on a stage sharing their research at conferences as they are working in a spreadsheet interfacing with senior-level internal stakeholders as well as clients.

You should be interested in this role if you feel passionate about TV content and its ability to ignite consumer loyalty, buzz, and engagement, for both viewers and brands. You should agree that Sponsorships in strong IP provide opportunities for brands to connect across many touchpoints that are integrated in culture. This is a role for someone curious, who wants to continue learning, to work at the forefront of the evolving video ecosystem and to collaborate with exceptional colleagues.
