OVERVIEW

Movement Strategy is an independent social media agency. Now at its 13+year, with 120+ employees across offices, we produce groundbreaking content for partners including Netflix, Klarna, Amazon Prime Video, and more. 

We’re in search of someone to lead our Digital Content Department.

Delivering business results through innovative content and creative ideas rooted in strategy and data is what drives our continued success, in addition to the amazing relationships we build with our clients.

You’ll be an excellent fit if you’re able to lead team members as well as lead cross-department initiatives, have a vision for how to structure our Digital Content team and position it to scale, you understand (and have strong opinions on) the best processes for publishing and on-channel management, and you have some big wins under your belt for bringing brand voice to life through highly creative and effective content and engagement strategies on social media.

Movement is an Equal Opportunity Employer 

At Movement, we believe that what we put out into the world matters. And since we were founded on the principles of paving our own path, we take bold steps towards what we believe is the right direction. This means addressing the big stuff: the systems of inequality that impact some of us far more than others. As culture creators, we firmly believe we have a responsibility to our colleagues, clients, communities, and the industry to live up to the Movement name. We confront inequities head-on as they come, knowing that this work is never done and that we must keep the momentum.
