Community Manager (Full Time)

Type: Full Time
Office Location: Toronto

Overview

We’re looking for a community manager to inspire and facilitate conversations on a number of our clients’ social platforms.  
The perfect candidate is obsessed with social — for this person, checking Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram before getting out of bed is the norm. They are excellent communicators, and have a passion for helping others. We’re looking for someone who knows that relationship building is a vital part of the mix; someone who believes that customer service is a pleasure, not a headache. If you’re saying to yourself, ‘yup, that’s me!’ we want to hear from you.

Responsibilities

As a community manager, you’ll need to roll up your sleeves and take on a number of roles:

Content creator: You’ll work with the account and strategy team to build content maps & editorial calendars and you may be called on to write & develop content for all social media channels.

Social media marketer: You’ll be the face of the brand. You’ll create, manage, and grow various brands’ presence through blogs, Twitter, Facebook, and other strategically relevant online properties.

Customer relations rep: You’ll be responsible for customer support and mitigating customer concerns over social media, partnering with customer service representatives as necessary.

Educator: You’ll keep the Colour team up-to-date on social media best practices, trends, platforms, and tools.

Relationship builder: You’ll identify, develop, and foster relationships with the best community members across various platforms.

Analytics master: You’ll manage day-to-day monitoring and analytics programs and provide ongoing recommendations on how to optimize content and community management.

Guardian: You’ll uphold social media guidelines & policies across every interaction & touchpoint.

QUALIFICATIONS

Here are a few things you’ll need for this position:

  • A degree or diploma in journalism, marketing, communications, PR, English, or business
  • 2-4 years experience working in PR, online communications, or as a writer
  • Passion for all things social media & technology. You should have experience & fluency in Facebook, Twitter, Google +, Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, LinkedIn, and other social media platforms.
  • Exceptionally strong writing and editing skills, especially for online audiences
  • Flexibility & adaptability. Social is an ever-changing, fast paced world and you’ll need to learn & change as fast as it does.
  • The ability to multi-task & manage pressure-filled situations
  • Willingness to work odd hours. This is not your typical 9-5.
  • Strong analytical and problem solving skills. You’re not afraid of research and reporting. In fact, you downright love it.
  • A penchant for people. You can talk to strangers and form relationships that last a lifetime.
  • A proactive self-starting approach. You need to work well independently with minimal supervision but also play well with others.
  • Resourcefulness. When in doubt, Google is your bff 4 lyfe.


And some nice-to-haves:

  • Ability to speak and write in (Canadian) French
  • A solid understanding in customer ‘profiling’ and an awareness of customer behaviour
  • Crisis communication training and/or experience

WORKING CONDITIONS

We’re in downtown Toronto in the east end in a cozy brick-walled office. We’ve got nerf guns, yoga classes, weekly fruit delivery, and a mini keg. We swear and try not to take life too seriously — unless clients are freaking out, then it gets real. We’re not too worried about what you wear so long as the work gets done. And make no mistake, there’s lots of work.

COMPENSATION

Compensation will reflect your experience.

Digital Strategist

Type: Full Time
Office Location: Toronto

Overview

Colour Social is looking for a Digital Strategist to help manage the explosive growth we have experienced in providing digital solutions to our clients.

The perfect candidate has grown up digital and has 5+ years of digital strategic planning experience. They are obsessed with knowing the latest and greatest digital trends, and are known to be passionate and curious. This ideal person will have a strong understanding of the interactive & digital realm – specifically, a strong understanding of consumers and target audiences and how they interact and engage with digital marketing. As well, they should have strong communication, presentation and interpersonal skills.  

Responsibilities

As a Digital Strategist you will collaborate across clients, teams, and platforms, and act as an expert on several key accounts in the areas of website development, online advertising, social media, mobile, and more.

Performance reporting practice leader: You’ll develop systems of analysis and automation for our clients’ growing reporting needs. Wrangling the data, storing it, making sense of it and extracting the stories is paramount to our business.

Social listener: Reporting is grounded in quantitative data, but the voices of our clients’ consumers have endless insight as well. Identifying communities, finding conversation and extracting knowledge from this exercise is the qualitative yin to quantitative’s yang.

Systems planner: The complex, multidirectional world of the modern consumer journey require equally complex and eloquent strategies. A list of tactics will not do: we must use our research, our gut and our intimate knowledge of the space to win.

QUALIFICATIONS

Here are a few things you’ll need for this position:

  • 5+ years experience in a relevant role
  • A passion & capacity for endless learning
  • The ability to thrive amid ambiguity
  • An ownership mentality — no one will be holding your hand
  • An awesome, positive personality
  • Above average Excel skills (e.g. you’ve used VLOOKUP before)

The nice-to-haves:

  • Management experience, having others report to you
  • Software experience:
    • Web analytics (e.g. Google Analytics, Omniture)
    • Social listening (e.g. Radian6, Sysomos, NUVI)
    • Data management (e.g. TapClicks, Caspio, Domo)
    • Data visualization (e.g. Tableau)
    • CRM / Inbound (e.g. HubSpot, gShift, Marketo)
  • VBA skills
  • Automation experience (e.g. using APIs, writing scripts, or macros)
  • A notable balance of creative & analytical skills
  • Entrepreneurial skills or experience
  • Digital project management experience
  • Website building & maintenance experience
