Linktree is looking for someone to take the lead on our social team. This reports directly into our Head of Brand & Comms and starts with a small globally distributed team but you will grow that team as part of your role. We currently have a social media manager in Brazil and one in Australia, but you will be expected to hire, motivate and inspire more people and quite quickly.
The two key criteria we are looking for are strong experience in tech brands and prior experience managing and leading large global teams. Combine that with your strategic and creative brain with a healthy obsession for social media and you could be the one we are looking for.
Who is Linktree: A rapidly growing tech company, with 30,000+ new account sign-ups every day and 12 million+ customer accounts. We completed our Series B raise in March and grew from 15 to 70 people across the globe in 2020, with even higher growth planned in 2021.
This role will lead all global strategies, outputs, and team members for Linktree social media in collaboration with specialist creatives, paid media and growth specialists. You'd dive really deep into who our customers and potential customers are and where they live online, then set that strategy on what are we saying to them and how and when and why.
The US is currently our biggest growth market and highest volume of customers, which is why we’d love for this role to be located out of LA but with plenty of flexibility around remote working. We currently have Nick and Jeremy in LA, with new offices and plans to hire around 20 people in LA in 2021. You'll work with our Australian-based team too, including our creatives (Nicky and Nicko, plus the Nick I mentioned earlier so if your name is not Nick that would swell) and Henry and Ana our Social Media Managers. You will hire and mentor more social media managers across the globe too.
What are we looking for:
It would be great if you were able to:
If you've read through the requirements as a checklist and haven't ticked every box, don't rule yourself out just yet. We've seen the research that women and other people in minority groups tend to only apply when the checklist is all ticks and no crosses. So if you think you have what it takes, hit that apply button!
We hire with a people-first approach, so more importantly as a human, you will be collaborative, curious, enjoy solving complex problems and have empathy for the growing pains of a rapidly scaling startup.
Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:
