- You’re borderline obsessive about data. You love to learn from what works and doesn’t, continually improving your social game to engage users and grow revenue.
- You’re a dog owner or an enthusiastic dog lover. The idea of applying your social media marketing skills and experience to photos of cute dogs gets your tail wagging.
- You’d love to be part of a creative, fast-growing team where you can directly impact the company’s success.
