At The Variable, you will not just be “a social person.” You will be a maker, an idea generator, and someone who is inspired by the possibility of helping brands co-create the future with the human beings who love them.

We are looking for a Social Producer who has 2+ years of social experience and many more years of making stuff with your phone.

You will partner with a Senior Social Strategist to define what greatness means for your clients. To develop and implement social media initiatives that support the integrated strategy, and push them into the future. You will collaborate heavily with our Creative and Production Department to ideate, develop, and make.

Our ideal Social Producer has a strong visual aesthetic and can adapt to multiple brand styles. You are capable in Adobe Suite, and have a well developed POV on what makes social content impactful and effective. You love finding new and interesting ways to build content within a social platform and produce beautiful and interesting photography. You are highly collaborative and confident enough to guide teammates and clients down the right paths. You are comfortable operating as a planner some days and a maker on others.

You will be a key integrator between all teams, because social plays in all worlds and cannot be relegated to a department.

YOU MUST:

  • LOVE SOCIAL WITH ALL YOUR HEART.
  • Partner with integrated account, creative, media, and social team to develop campaign and content ideas for our clients
  • Innately define and communicate to clients how a brand comes to life on social.
  • Build frameworks that map social content across agency creative, co-created content with fans, and on-site content capture, and others.
  • Develop engaging and interactive content in-platform
  • Develop social content briefs, being a highly collaborative partner to the creative team as we both develop and execute both planned and real time content.
  • Develop ideas for real-time content creation, and processes that facilitate them
  • Be a fan of using social platform creation tools in new and creative ways
  • Be a strong creative writer
  • Be a strong organizational and detail-oriented team member, who values efficiency and developing new processes that allow all of us to spend more time doing what we love (including yourself!)
  • Know great creative work when you see it, make it better and sell it through.
  • Embody the values of The Variable while maintaining a positive attitude and dedication.
  • Have an interest outside of advertising that you are just as passionate about as advertising (we are firm believers in work/life balance…we need to know you love something else).

YOU HAVE:

  • 2+ years of social experience
  • Proven track record of creating social content
  • Included a link to portfolio with social content (either yours, or clients, or both)
  • Proficiency in Adobe Photoshop
  • Illustrator/InDesign skills a plus
  • Shoot and edit photo and video in mobile
  • Strong presentation skills (both keynote/powerpoint building and speaking/pitching creative)
  • Experience in motion design, whether AfterAffects, Photoshop, or new motion apps
  • In-depth knowledge of established and emerging social channels, along with experience executing channel-specific strategies.
  • The motivation to always deliver the best work without micromanagement.
