If you don’t agree, apply and change our minds. 

Job Description:

You can expect to learn on the job from industry pros. We’ll provide lots of support and input on how to do the work, but we’re also all ears if you have new ideas to make it better. We set high standards for ourselves, the team and our work but promise that the experience will be rewarding (and that we’ll have some fun along the way). While we’re WFH right now and the foreseeable future, but we meet up monthly IRL to work together. Note that there may be client events that may require the occasional in person meeting or event.

In terms of the specifics, the candidate would be able to:

  • Execute multiple client campaigns under the guidance of Account Lead

  • You’ll join client meetings and speak to the status on tasks, and provide updates to your teammates on deadlines & results.
  • Work on some cool initiatives, learn through feedback from the team, and Slack memes back and forth with your colleagues.

Requirements: 

  • Knowledge and deep understanding of social media platforms (Instagram, TikTok, Twitch)
  • Past experience in working with creators considered an asset

  • Strong project management and organizational skills — you love lists and Excel

  • Team player, with the confidence to take the lead and guide other groups when necessary — approaching influencers, agents, vendors, and clients
  • Ability to build and maintain relationships with creators and clients
  • Good technical understanding and can learn new softwares quickly
  • Previous experience in an agency setting is preferred but not mandatory

Education:

  • Certificate in PR or Bachelor's Degree, preferably in Communications/English, Public Relations, Marketing,

We bring a gritty, hustler’s attitude to every project to make sure the work is better and smarter.

Go beyond. 

Our standards are high. ‘Going beyond’ is our baseline and we do that for our clients and for ourselves everyday.

Move courageously. 

Doing impactful work takes courage, but that’s what separates leaders from a crowd. We like to push the boundaries even when it’s scary (!) to make sure we’re making an impact.

Compensation: 

Commensurate with experience starting at $40,000-45,000 yearly
