Have you made an impact leading social media programming in-house or with an agency previously? Do you know how to reach the right people at the right time with the right message? Are you obsessed with digital content trends and emerging platforms?
We are looking for a self-starting, intellectually curious person possessing gravitas to join as a Social Media Strategist on our Content Hub team - IBM's enterprise storytelling platform.
In this role, you are part of a nimble cross-functional team that produces communications in support of our corporate narrative around the world. As our in-house expert, you will lead efforts designing engaging experiences across myriad social media channels using insights, technologies and know-how, with a constant testing/learning approach.
With a keen understanding of how social platforms such as Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube and others are organized, you easily translate business objectives into social media objectives while effectively advocating for the right set of actions to continuously improve IBM's thinking, strategy direction, and programs and tactics.
If you are a left-/right-brain do-er and someone who can easily share the load – and share laughs - with others, let's talk.
