Job Description

Ritual is a direct-to-consumer health brand that believes it’s crucial to know not just what you’re putting into your body, but why you need it in the first place. We’re transparent about our ingredients, where they're sourced from, and have spent years conducting extensive research behind each of the premium nutrient forms we use. Our products are simple, effective, and backed by science. Our mission is simple: to empower people to feel their best by turning healthy habits into a ritual.
 
We have built a team of curious skeptics, world-class scientists, unconventional artists, expert marketers, and analytical strategists that are on a mission to reinvent an entire industry. We’re well-funded, growing quickly, and committed to our mission. If you’re a team player who refuses to settle for the status quo, we want you. Welcome to your new daily Ritual.
 
Ritual is based in sunny Los Angeles, but will be working remotely until the global health situation improves.
 
Position: Social Media Coordinator
Reports to: Associate Director of Social 
Location: Onsite/Culver City (remote through pandemic)
 
Essential
Ritual is looking for an inspired up-and-coming social voice/artist/creator to serve as our Social Media Coordinator.  We’re a brand with Webby-nominated content that looks to constantly set that standard for memorable social media work, and this opportunity aims to reach independent and passionate creators who operate confidently in both unique content creation and producing organized research & data.  Candidates for this role should have experience in the world of marketing or communications, and be passionate about social media — both on established and newer mediums like TikTok and Instagram Reels. They should be hungry to grow Ritual’s social presence through unique content that resonates deeply with our community. This person will gain an unprecedented understanding of who Ritual is as a brand and be responsible for helping bring that to life across social platforms.

What You’ll Do:

    • You will assist the Associate Director of Social in bringing Ritual’s brand POV to life across social channels.
    • You will independently film and produce lo-fi product and lifestyle video content for Ritual’s TikTok and Instagram Reels.
    • You will assist in lo-fi product photography work as well as identify and manage potential content creators for Ritual.
    • You will assist our Creative Team on design-based content, though you will also contribute lo-fi design content through Instagram Stories, Reels, and TikTok.
    • You will work to support social leadership and creative leadership on campaigns, product launches, and day-to-day content.
    • You will help monitor social data and other key performance indicators to identify content that is “successful” for the brand on secondary platforms.
    • You will work with partners across teams to produce day-to-day social content that taps into cultural events, the Ritual POV, and the general interests of our followers.

Who You Are:

    • Creative. You should be able to create original content that represents the brand and catches the eye of our audience. 
    • Curious. You should have knowledge of the world of marketing and brand, or be willing to dig deep and learn on the job.
    • Passionate. Outside of your job, you have a passion for social media. You are energized by thoughtful work in this space and are always looking for memorable, creative content.
    • Eager. You have a hunger to work independently and create something “beyond the ask” — always working to do more and learn more about what’s next for social content.
    • Detail-Oriented. You have an obsession with social media and with content — both with data and your gut as your guide. You’re able to determine and create work that is memorable, meaningful, and unique to the brand.
    • A Communicator. You write well, understand the power of storytelling, and can parse through the numbers to uncover the story within.

What You Need:

    • Education: BS/BA, preferably in Marketing, Communications, or Creative fields encouraged but not required. Equivalent experience is also accepted.
    • Experience: 
    • Background in Digital Marketing, Social Media, or Creative fields.
    • Hands-on experience with social media scheduling and planning, content creation, and social media reporting or willingness to learn these skills on the job.
    • Familiarity with Adobe platforms like Photoshop and Spark, alongside any additional social editing tools.
    • Experience in content creation — largely design and lo-fi video, though photography, film, and editing are always a bonus.
    • The ability or willingness to learn writing social copy and mastering brand tone of voice.
    • Strong presentation skills to share social insights with senior stakeholders
    • Eagerness around analyzing social data and distilling insights into actionable strategies
    • An eye for design to create lo-fi internal assets and spot external creative partners for additional lo-fi content
    • Additional Experience (not required, but appreciated): 
    • Experience contributing to a brand as a content creator or social coordinator is appreciated.
    • Experience in digital community building and management is not required but appreciated.
    • An understanding of direct-to-consumer businesses and marketing KPIs is welcomed but not required.
