Social Media Specialist - Flying Dog Beer

Flying Dog is looking for a Social Media Specialist who will be an integral part of spreading the gospel of Gonzo to the far reaches of the interwebs. Are you a master of memes with a sharp sense of humor, eye for epic images and deep love for delicious craft beer? In the perfect world, this person’s job summary would be represented in an Instagram Story or Tik Tok video but job descriptions are still fairly analog so a block of text will have to do.

Big Picture:

  • The Social Media Specialist will work within our marketing team to create and execute social media strategies on behalf of the brewery which will include creating original content, maintaining an editorial calendar, developing customer engagement strategies, executing digital advertising campaigns, coordinating product placement with influencers and more. This position’s ultimate goals will be to increase awareness of Flying Dog’s high-quality products and unique history, grow the brewery’s online presence through authentic content that drives loyalty and facilitate remarkable storytelling.
  • When you’re not showing the world who Flying Dog is through social and digital channels, you’ll work closely with the entire marketing team on strategic brand priorities.
  • Platforms to be managed: Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, Glassdoor
  • Position: 100% remote with meetings, collaborative teamwork and sharing hilarious videos facilitated by Slack and Zoom. In-person opportunities to meet with teammates to gather content, discuss work and drink beer will also be possible.

Social Strategy & Evaluation –
