Who You Are…

Us? The social media company. You? A creative and inherently social individual who thrives on building communities and inspiring others to take action through great content.

As a Social Marketing Specialist, you contribute to Hootsuite's best in class social marketing strategy, help to develop a community strategy and play a major role in executing both. To do this, you are constantly finding ways to stay ahead of the curve and understand what conversations or trends are relevant for us to take part in.

You have a talent for creating effective, relevant and engaging content, growing our audiences, and balancing overlapping deadlines, projects and campaigns. Once content is published, you're constantly watching the numbers and tracking engagement to see what works best across audiences and channels, and then use that data to inform our upcoming content.

Reporting to the Social Marketing Lead, you can expect your day in the life to include: creating and scheduling content across Hootsuite's social channels (including Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook), overseeing the health and growth of our key social media communities, analyzing and delivering actionable metrics, leading our Hootsuite Amplify content strategy to support our employee advocacy strategy, and providing product feedback as an internal user of Hootsuite.
