This is your chance to tell people you get paid to be on Instagram. And Facebook. And whatever social channels our clients are on. As a Social Media Strategist, you won't just create social media plans; you'll also implement them through content creation and monitoring. That means you're someone who is as comfortable with big ideas as with details. You're fascinated by the latest social media trends, and you also understand the foundational principles of what makes an account successful (or not). Basically, you're a unicorn-a tenacious one-and we'd love to find you.
