Description

When you come work with us, here’s what you’ll find:

Work that is awesome. We only work with clients who are changing the world. And, we say no to clients if we don’t believe in their cause or if we can’t help them.

Colleagues you can count on. Kind, dedicated, passionate people who bring the smarts, get things done, and help you to do your best, too.

So that’s us. Now about the work:
  • We run social media programs and campaigns for nonprofits and causes like immigrant rights, gender equality, health equity, and more -- think groups like the American Cancer Society, Vera Institute, Girls Inc., and others.
  • Day-to-day, we’re figuring out how to reach their audiences across social platforms with the right messages at the right times to grow their ranks and drive action, narrative change, and fundraising. We filter through all the things our clients could be doing and hone in on what they should be doing to reach their goals.

Here’s what you’ll be doing in this role:
  • Work in a team to create and implement effective social media campaigns for clients.
  • Support the client relationship by staying in close contact with clients throughout the day via email and phone, leading weekly check-in calls, and presenting at big strategy meetings.
  • Serve as the project manager on core client deliverables, making sure those deliverables are on time and managing up and down as necessary to get the work done.
  • Create and maintain social media monitoring lists and perform basic target audience research and analysis.
  • Implement day-to-day social media outreach to reporters and stakeholders, as well as ongoing social media monitoring, including creating social media content and graphics.
  • Research and identify how to leverage new tools and technology to advance client goals.
  • Help develop and lead sections of social media trainings for clients.
  • Review and/or create agendas, notes, calendars, and data reports for clients.
  • Keep your teams running smoothly and make sure we’re giving the best possible service to our clients.
  • Spearhead strategy documents such as creative concept memos, outlines, and wrap-up reports.
  • Do your part to help us run smoothly - including carefully tracking all of your client hours as well as pitching in with small office management responsibilities.
