  • Manage activation of all new promotions and offers with partners, designers, photographers, the subscription house, and event team.
  • Be technically proficient. Experience and interest in writing, design, photography, or videography is a bonus.
  • Understand social media. The position will require a strong understanding of Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and whatever’s next.
  • Communicate well. The applicant will be working with a variety of staff each day in addition to managing event staff.
