We are looking for solid thinkers- we need someone with a creative type mind-set that can also be a team player.

Associate’s or Bachelor’s degree (business administration/marketing) desired but not required, will accept appropriate verifiable experience; recent grads definitely welcome with strong accompanying skillsets.

The Wrap:

So this list isn’t exhaustive, but we think you get the idea. We’re looking for someone who loves being a part of a team and who works hard. “That’s not in my job description” isn’t in your vocabulary. 🙂

We are looking to hire soon. Based on the past jobs we hired for, we may or may not get to see all applicants, but we will let you know when we make our decision.

Hopefully you read to the end. Also REQUIRED to be considered is a 30+ second video to show off a bit. Video is becoming essential in the world of social. Sell yourself to us. 🙂 Yes, you can use your phone… we’re not monsters.

This is a full-time position (35+ hours a week) that requires onsite work with our team. Not looking for long-distance. Also, no phone calls, no stop-bys, please. So… if you think you match up with us and are interested, do the equivalent of swiping right, and get typing.
