SENIOR SOCIAL STRATEGIST

LOS ANGELES


JOB DESCRIPTION

At Giant Spoon, social is not just another channel or distribution platform, but a dynamic mix of culture, human behavior, and platform mechanics. Engagement is everything - social isn't an output, rather an input to something bigger. We are audience first, content second. Using a mix of insights and culture, our content is designed to create conversation and allow people to connect with one another through shared interests. We create, learn, and iterate. No platform, strategy, tactic, or format is off limits as long as we're capturing attention, generating conversation, and providing value. 

Giant Spoon is looking for a Senior Social Strategist to advise our clients on overall social approach and behavior while also developing and executing innovative content and social campaigns.
