Morning Brew is looking to bring on a Director of Social Media to head up our social media efforts.
Just so we’re clear: we’re not a coffee company. Morning Brew is a media company that’s disrupting the traditional business content landscape. Our goal is to make the business world more engaging for the modern business leader through engaging and accessible content.
Morning Brew is expanding rapidly, and we’re searching for a Director of Social Media to head up our social media efforts. This is both a strategic and hands-on role that is responsible for both managing our social media efforts across our existing text and multimedia based franchises and launching new social-first franchises. This is a unique opportunity to be a leader within a key strategic growth area for Morning Brew overall.
While this position is based in New York City, office colocation will be contingent on stay-at-home orders; until then, all employees are working remotely.
