Yulu is growing our social media team: we’re looking for our next Social Media Strategist.
Yulu is an award-winning PR agency founded on the principles of sharing stories that matter. Our clients are socially- and environmentally-progressive brands and nonprofits in the US and Canada. We’re looking for a social media strategist to join our team and expand how we use communications as a force for good.
Our Agency’s Culture
What’s most important to us is to be thoughtful, curious, and bold in how we approach our work. As colleagues, we continuously strive to maintain a culture that values empathy, positive reinforcement, and being solutions-oriented. With the media being a fast-paced world, so are we – and we find the best way to sustain momentum is to go the distance together.
Who You Are
You specialize in social media marketing. You know how to make social media work in tandem with a brand’s content strategy, and how to develop social media strategies that feed into a brand’s communications and marketing strategy.
You are a thoughtful, concise communicator (unlike Mark Twain, you take the time to write a short letter) and you know what makes a compelling social impact story or soundbite. You have a sharp eye for aesthetics and have a knack for bringing abstract concepts to life through images, videos, or design. You know how to make a social media page engaging and cohesive. You are data-driven – anything that you don’t know works, you test.
You know where to look for the newest social media features, trends, and rules, and how to adapt them for brands. You understand the importance of making sure social media is accessible.
You’re able to thrive in a setting where you are the primary expert in your field, and you get to decide what you need to do your job well. You are energized when your work environment is a constant exchange of ideas, concepts and encouragement. You are adaptable, flexible, and open to new opportunities, even if they might throw your editorial calendar out of balance for the day.
