Giant Squid is looking for a Social Media Specialist to lead our social media strategy and implementation. Our mission is to build genuine connections with our players via well made posts and online content and to expand awareness and hype for our upcoming projects. Join us and help get the Giant Squid message out there!

As our Social Media Specialist, you will help us plan and ideate our social media campaigns and create large scale schedules for them. Then you will create regular content and posts to implement those campaigns. As our campaigns move forward, we will look to you to analyze how they are doing, and experiment with strategy tweaks in order to improve them.

Day to day, you will create content and post it on sites like Twitter, TikTok, Reddit, Instagram, etc. Creating these posts will mean using in-game tools to record footage from our games to create videos, gifs, and animated content. Using in-game tools to capture footage will require you to learn to play our games well in order to capture footage that shows them off. You will also create a lot of images for posts, which will involve compositing graphics from our library of media as well as capturing new screenshots from our games and editing them for various post formats. And of course, you will be the voice that represents us to our community. This will require thoughtful writing for posts and engaging with fans on our social media channels. Experience with graphic design, typography, video editing, and writing are a must for this role.
