Digital Content and Social Media Coordinator
Marketing | Culver City, CA | Full Time
Inc. 500 CMO Seeks Top 10% Digital Content Coordinator for Quickly Growing Health, Nutrition, and Marketing Company.
Dear Digital Content and Social Media Coordinator,
If you love content marketing and project management, this will be the most important “job ad” you’ll ever read.
We’re looking for a top 10% Digital Content Coordinator who loves using content (much of which is on social media) to connect with an audience, and who is a high achiever who can thrive in a fast-paced, fun start-up environment.
That’s where you come in…
As Digital Content Coordinator, you’ll be a key player in our growing content production and syndication team while being in charge of multiple new and exciting initiatives we have planned. You’ll need to have a strong ability to drive projects forward and hold multiple teams accountable to meeting deadlines.
In short, we’re building an all-star content team that creates high quality videos, podcasts, blogs, website content and social media posts, so you’ll need to have experience managing a lot of different content channels.
If you have what it takes, you'll join a team of fun, passionate, hard-working professionals and a company that was ranked #168 on Inc 500's "Fastest Growing Private Companies" list, as one of LA Business Journal’s “Best Places to Work,” and as one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Top Company Cultures” in America.
A little more about us…
SnackNation is America’s leading healthier snack delivery service for businesses and homes. We help people become healthier, happier, and more productive and serve as a catalyst to help people become better versions of themselves via better eating and lifestyle decisions. We serve over 3,500 offices and over 250,000 employees in America, and we’re just getting started. SnackNation donates 10 meals to hungry families for every box we ship (we’ve donated over 2M meals so far).
Before we describe what this role entails, here are some quick points:
1) THIS IS NOT A “STANDARD” CONTENT MARKETING ROLE.
You know what we mean…where everything is on auto-pilot and your day consists of sipping coffee, checking your stats, and having your role spoon-fed to you. This is a “roll up your sleeves,” get involved, and create massive value type of role. You’ll be in charge of our content calendars and coordinating the publication of our content through various channels.
2) WE HIRE CHARACTERS NOT POSITIONS.
If you have what it takes as an individual - in other words, if you have a positive mindset and strong work ethic - then you'll fit in well at our company. Young or old, just out of college or marketing veteran, if you have what it takes, we'll know! We find that the most successful individuals in this role have both their heads and their hearts in the right place.
3) WE’RE FUN AND YOU SHOULD BE, TOO.
The first thing you'll notice about us is our unique culture, super-fun office environment, and positive family spirit. We like to infuse fun in much of what we do…it just makes pursuing your passions that much more…well…fun!
4) RARE OPPORTUNITY.
This type of opportunity is a rare occurrence in life…we’re uniquely positioned to step on the gas with a platform that has already proven itself in the market. This is a dream job for the right creative individual who wants to grow quickly.
