Creative Strategist

Role: Creative Strategist

Full-time Location: Venice, CA in the heart of an inspiring and eclectic artist community

Hi there! Thanks for checking out our posting. First off, props to you for looking for something new in a pandemic...that’s highkey stressful. Whatever your reasoning is, we’re happy you stumbled here and only chill vibes from this point forward period!!

A little about what we are looking for...

Basically, someone that is curious about the business of brand marketing in the world of digital video influencers on YouTube, Instagram, and TikTok. 

In corporate speak this is where we say something cliche like “searching for an agile self-starter with a proven track record” blah blah we’re exhausted! Yes, you need experience in our world (eComm, Influencer Marketing, Digital Media pls) and tbh this role is not for the faint of heart. You’ll be on the team that’s responsible for driving innovation in our space and that can take shape in a lot of different forms (see “Job Responsibilities” below). 

But…. we’re most interested in who YOU are. Do you wait in line at Glossier on Melrose Place? Perfect. Do you wake up and scroll on TikTok until you can fully open your eyes? Even better. Do you read up on what's going on in the world of brands, especially in fashion and beauty? Hallelujah. Do you care about the environment and want to contribute to a company that's committed to inspiring change? Ladies & gentlemen, we have ourselves a winner.

Aside from that, are you analytical? And not just like breaking down your fave red carpet (tbt) looks analytical. Can you open up a spreadsheet and look at numbers and tell a story? Asking because we love data & that's why brands love us & that’s why we’ll love you. 

Lastly, you gotta be detail-oriented! *this we can't budge on* We'll need to trust in you to send things, save things, write things, and change things, improve things, and most importantly, create things without a ton of supervision.

Tbh this is a great opportunity for anyone that's looking to hit the ground running in one of LA's coolest startups. We are a small but agile team that's launched over 190k campaign videos with 21B+ views for brands like FENDI, lululemon, L’oreal USA, Glossier, Urban Outfitters, Walmart, ... it's pretty listless. You'll learn (and teach) a ton of real-world, valuable skills and will 100% have a voice that's heard, a brain that's picked, and an impact that's felt by everyone that works here.

Into it? If this post energized you then it might be a Swipe Right. If you’re exhausted after reading #BLOCK lol jk.

Diversity Statement

At MagicLinks, we recognize diversity as something bigger than a search term or buzzword. Diversity here is an acknowledgement that the world is made up of many different facets, that all human beings have intrinsic value and worth, and are under no obligation to be anything other than their honest selves. Diversity means recognizing that different views and experiences are as important as those we’re already familiar with. It means taking radical ownership of the things we affect as individuals and as a company - including even inherited ways of doing things which may be destructive or biased and which we must work to change. It means looking at the world and making sure we embody as many of its best qualities as we can, and striving for that as a matter of principle, not as a marketing goal we check off a list. 

Diversity goes beyond what we look like, who we are, who we love or how we think. Diversity is shorthand for an integrity-driven way of operating and growing every single day, and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
