Job Description
We're looking for a creative, innovative and data-driven Social Media Manager with demonstrated experience in e-commerce and success in building brands to join The Dodo. As the creator behind our new shopping social channels, your on-camera charisma will play a pivotal role in influencing the way our audience shops.

In this role, you'll manage a range of responsibilities, from overseeing day-to-day operations to spearheading our overarching social commerce strategy, with a focus on short-form video. A significant aspect of your role will involve being the primary on-camera personality for the channels - starring alongside your pet! You'll be responsible for creating a mix of engaging content, including pet product reviews, pet parenting tips and relatable trends, all while leveraging The Dodo's unique and trusted authority in the pet parenting space to inspire our audience to make informed purchasing decisions. Through your collaboration across multiple teams, these new channels will provide a curated digital shopping experience to our community that helps them discover the products they didn't know they needed.

You will also be collaborating closely with other Dodo employees, conceptualizing and creating supplemental video content for the channel. Responsibilities include overseeing the editing process for these videos, ensuring they align with our brand vision and maintain high standards of quality and engagement.

The ideal candidate is a pet-obsessed creator who has a natural on-camera presence with a deep understanding of what works on social media to drive audience growth and engagement. You also have demonstrated experience in e-commerce and crafting strong strategies that entertain audiences, build trust and solicit feedback, while also driving audiences to purchase.
