You are a self-assured, collaborative, creative-oriented, problem-solver who thrives in managing and sustaining current client relationships and projects, all while working closely with the Director of Social Strategy/Senior Social Strategist to identify additional growth opportunities.

It is the Social Brand Manager’s job to ensure that the values (creative, production, innovation, and beyond) of Epic Signal and Mekanism are woven into everything we do on a day-to-day level. This requires keeping our teams organized, helping to hit deadlines and supporting the business overall while making great creative.
