SOCIAL MEDIA PRODUCER

Space Oddity Films (spaceoddityfilms.com) is a content studio participating in Snapchat’s Yellow Accelerator (yellowla.com). We create innovative content for every platform – mobile, digital, film, television and emerging tech. Our original viral tech-horror shorts are the foundation of our brand.

Social media is the engine that powers Space Oddity Films’ growth. Our ability to create and distribute video content is dependent upon our ability to cultivate, grow and engage our audience on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and Snapchat. Our social media presence defines our voice as a company.

We need a Social Media Producer to work with the Social Media Director to implement the company’s social media strategy for YouTube, Instagram and Facebook. This person will be responsible to create and post micro-content across our social media channels and create copy for these posts. This person must have basic graphic design skills to edit photos and create premium memes and GIFs. This person must also have basic video editing skills to create clips and movie trailers from our short films.

This person will also respond to our audience’s comments on our videos across all channels using our carefully cultivated sense of good-natured, mildly disturbing snarkiness. We never mock our audience, but we do tease them – especially when they tease us first. Our social media content balances on the razor’s edge between horror and comedy, mean and playful – we need someone who loves to toe that line. And cross it, occasionally.

In addition to creating micro-content for our social media channels, the Social Media Producer will be responsible to work with the Social Media Director on creating our content calendar and developing creative for paid advertisements. This person will also be responsible to engage other pages, accounts and influencers to share content and attract high-impact shares and followers.

The ideal candidate for this position will share our ambition to build an innovative content studio that creates premium video content every day. We want someone who shares our taste in horror, science fiction, comedy and technology. We are looking for a daredevil who exhibits good judgment, innovation, selflessness, courage, impact, candid communication, passion and curiosity. If you think the scariest horror movie you’ve ever seen is actually kind of funny, then please send us your resume and three micro-content samples.
