Job Description

We are a boutique social media marketing agency focused on delivering done-for-you services to entrepreneurs, business owners, and digital creators. We also teach social media strategies in our online membership program and through our podcast.

We are looking for a social media assistant to join our team.

This is a part-time role that reports to our CEO Andréa Jones as well as our account managers. This is a remote, work-from-home role that requires availability between the hours of 9am and 5pm Eastern Time as well as some weekends and holiday coverage.

Our Values

Integrity: The nature of our work means that we handle some sensitive data for our clients. We value honesty above all else as it is vital to our success. If a client isn’t a good fit, we tell them so. We don’t promise a certain number of sales/followers/engagement and believe doing so is dishonest. When mistakes happen, we take responsibility and work hard to make things right.

Passion: We LOVE what we do. We love creating and playing on the internet. We love our clients. We love our members. And we’re genuinely excited to help them succeed. The only reason we exist is because of them and we are so grateful for that.

Communication: Life happens. We understand that. Because our team is virtual and world wide, we expect an extremely high level of communication so that our business can run smoothly.

Excellence: We go above and beyond for our clients and members. We believe in striving for 110%. Delivering an amazing service is the key to continuing to grow our business.

Friendliness: We love showing up to work with a positive outlook and compassion for our team, our clients, and our members.

  • Ability to self-motivate to complete tasks
  • A quiet work environment including

While we do not require a background in social media, having some personal experience with platforms like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Instagram is a huge plus.

This role is for you if:

  • You care about the work that you do.
  • You are a self-starter who does not require micromanagement.
  • You embrace technology with open arms and get excited about learning new systems and ways of doing things.
  • Google is your best friend.
  • You have the ability to juggle multiple tasks and competing priorities while delivering quality and timely content.
  • You have exceptional communication skills.
  • “That’s not my job” is not in your vocabulary.
  • You’re hyper focused on getting the details right.

Bonus points if you’ve listened to our podcast or been a member of our online community.

Please don’t apply if:

  • You’re working to build your own business. (You can have a side hustle but THIS is your main hustle.)
  • You can’t work alone and need to be told what to do when there is “down time”
  • You cannot complete tasks quickly (sometimes with a 24 hour turnaround time)
  • You have limited availability
  • You can’t handle regular and detailed feedback
  • You have a lot of things going on
  • You have a tendency to procrastinate
  • You’re not available during Eastern Time business hours.

Why work with us

  • We’re a growing social media marketing agency who loves fresh ideas and innovation.
  • You’re interested in learning new skills and you want to stretch professionally.
  • You can work from anywhere and can enjoy a flexible schedule. As long as the work gets done, you’re free to do it wherever you please.
  • We value good communication, self-reliance, and authenticity.
  • We work hard during working hours and respect time off. (Turn off those email and social media notifications!)
  • Hourly pay rate based on skills/experience/location.

Please note: For the first 60 days, the position requires an estimated 20-25 hours/week and pays hourly. This is a contract position and our relationship is business to self-employed contractor. After the first 60 days, we can explore more hours or even a full-time opportunity.
