Who You Are...
We are looking for a Social Brand Builder to help grow the personal brands of our socially savvy senior executives. You are a social media native with a DIY approach to conquering the Internet. Tweaking a newsletter? Finding great content? Interviewing an internet celebrity? Optimizing social ads? Taking the perfect Instagram? You know how to do it already, or you’ll damn well figure out how. Nothing gets in your way. You are a fearless, creative ideator who has a track record of turning your ambitious plans into action.
The role will report to the PR Manager responsible for executive communications, and is a key contributor in turning an executive’s vision or idea into compelling content that influences, educates, and engages target audiences important to the executive and Hootsuite.
