ABOUT US

OLIPOP was founded in 2017 by Ben Goodwin and David Lester. Ben and David have been working together for nearly a decade to find accessible solutions to bring the benefits of digestive health to as many consumers as possible.  OLIPOP is a deliciously refreshing tonic that is crafted with prebiotics, botanicals, and natural plant fiber to support your microbiome and benefit digestive health. We’re on a mission to provide an affordable, delicious alternative to soda that delivers leading-edge health benefits to mainstream consumers.

OUR TEAM

At Olipop our values lead the way we create our products, engage with each other, and interact with our community. While we’re invested in our product, we’re equally invested in personal development. We’re tightly knit, we’re genuine and we’re always pushing the envelope to do a better job than we did the day before. Our team is also fully remote, requiring us to be resourceful, creative and collaborative to support our fast-moving business.

To best serve our diverse community of customers, we also seek to recruit and include people with a diversity of abilities, backgrounds, and cultures.

WHAT YOU’LL NEED

Working at a start-up can be as much a personal journey as it is a professional one. To succeed at a company like Olipop, you must be comfortable with failing, learning, and adapting. You need to be curious, optimistic, and able to find a way when it seems impossible. You must be confident enough to express your ideas but humble and open to learning from your experiences and from others. If this is the approach you take to life, then we’d love to hear from you.

THE ROLE

The Director of Social Media oversees all aspects of OLIPOP’s social media strategy and operations, from setting goals, establishing channel strategies, leading and managing social media team, and measuring performance.

Their priority is establishing and implementing social media strategy for each channel, and must be able to clearly align social strategies with OLIPOP’s brand platform and Marketing KPIs. In collaboration with creative leadership, they will manage the creative execution of all social content, work with the OLIPOP Marketing Department (Influencer Marketing, PR, Partnerships), and collaborate with other internal departments (such as Commercialization and Sales).

The Director of Social Media will conduct market research and identify trends, opportunities, and threats in the social media landscape. They must be able to identify target audiences and implement communication strategies to engage with them.

The Director of Social Media should manage and mentor OLIPOP’s growing social team, helping them improve their core competencies and workflows by implementing standardized practices. The Director of Social Media must have a high degree of cultural sensitivity and be aware of cultural shifts within macro and micro social communities. They should be familiar with crisis management, and be able to assess social media risk, provide cultural guidance, and make operations-level recommendations to key OLIPOP decision makers.
