The Hired Guns are seeking a fashion- and beauty-obsessed Social Media Video and Photo Creator to produce spectacular visual content that will push this etailer’s social presence into the stratosphere. This role is Florida-based, preferably in the Miami area. You’ll start on a freelance basis, converting to fulltime staff once you’ve proven yourself!
The Nitty Gritty
The backstory on the organization and why they need to hire you!
Following ten consecutive years of double-digit growth, this digital retail/etailer is the largest in NYC and one of the ten biggest in the country. For their new Social Media Video and Photo Creator, they’re looking for a social-media-forward South Florida-based photographer and videographer who can take advantage of the beautiful scenery and shoot the company’s products and make them sing. Clothing, accessories, shoes, and even beauty will be onboard. They hire the models, you style and produce the shoots, do a little post-production magic when needed, and post them to the brand’s social channels.
This is more than a job for you, because you already live and breathe social—Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat, Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, along with one or two only you and some Palo Alto madman know about. You know what kind of content works where, and you adapt your art accordingly.
How you’ll know if you’re a fit…
You know that the key to winning social media is through innovative high-quality content, so you go way beyond iPhone Insta snaps to deploy video, effects, and filters to produce work that’s creative, compelling, and uniquely your own. You’re able to plot out concepts and make your case by building a deck for the creative director to judge. You advocate for your ideas, but appreciate the knowledge-sharing that will also be part of the equation.
This is one of those rare opportunities to be judged solely on the quality of your work—not who you know or which brands are paying your bills. A college senior could have just as good a chance as a seasoned marketer of landing this gig, so if your portfolio is gorgeous, you’re golden. And if your work moves merchandise, you’ll be platinum.
The job is 100% remote (though you must be Florida-based—that’s non-negotiable) and is perfect for the creator with a self-motivated entrepreneurial spirit who also appreciates the support that comes from having a big brand behind them.
