Social Marketing Strategist

TITLE: Social Marketing Strategist    

OVERVIEW OF ROLE:

You know about new Instagram features before they are rolled out. You spend (what some would call) an alarming amount of time nerding out over Internet culture. You love asking the question, “Why?” You’re a long-term planner. You love to be buttoned up so you can improvise in the moment. You equally love finding narratives in data and listening for the underlying insight from focus group participants. You see the value in simplistic briefs. Brainstorms and calendaring are your jam. You inherently understand the difference between the audiences on Vine, Snapchat Discover, and Youtube. You can easily articulate the difference between strategy and tactics. You love distilling complex problems into manageable tasks. You’d watch Ted Talks and ComicCon panels with equal fervor. You know the difference between Marvel and DC fans (no judgement here on what side you fall). You are excited to be the lynchpin in a tightknit team. You love fantasy, sci-fi, and horror television. If you are getting excited, read on.
