●      Hands-on experience managing social media channels for a brand, and using analytics and marketing tools to strategize, execute, and measure the performance of campaigns

●      Proven track record of significantly growing digital audience

●      Software experience: CMS content entry (such as Wordpress), Email (such as Mailchimp), Adobe Creative Suite, Google Analytics, Meta advertising, and basic HTML required; Salesforce, and video editing experience a plus
