  • Create and monitor social media posts that promote our editorial content, meant to inspire engagement and break through the clutter of social feeds

  • Robust analytics tracking of daily posts against each platform’s KPIs

  • Launch Freethink into new social feeds, including Instagram and Facebook stories, Instagram reels, YouTube shorts, and wherever else you find value

  • A/B test headlines, thumbnail images, and sharing copy to continually optimize social posts

  • Track daily channel and post performance to identify audience and content trends as well as opportunities for continual improvement

  • Write compelling headlines and social copy for all videos, with the support of your teammates

  • Oversee video launches with a focus on YouTube success

  • Find and schedule third-party content

  • Coordinate regular content swaps with partners on Facebook and other platforms

  • Consistently surface insights from content performance to inform and shape our marketing and editorial strategies

  • Strong understanding of each social channel and their analytics

  • A love for reading science, technology, and innovation content - especially our editorial content (We think it’s pretty cool!)

  • Proficiency in Adobe InDesign or Photoshop to create engaging, branded content for visual-driven platforms like Instagram

  • Strong communication skills to consistently share insights from the frontlines of our social communities

  • An adaptive and flexible spirit, as the digital marketing landscape is always changing

  • Courage to experiment, openness to feedback, and a desire for continuous learning and improvement

  • Access to a strong WiFi connection — while your team will work remotely across multiple continents, we value daily connection by video and Slacking
