Intro

Hello, interested candidates! I’m Neil, the owner of Boba Tea Protein!

We are in search for a true Social Media Manager who knows the ins and outs of growing a brand's social media pages.

This person should also be completely fluent in Mandarin, can read and write in Simplified Chinese, and fluent in English.

The person should also be the most fun, boba-loving, and fitness-loving person ever whose charisma shines on camera.

This person's 6 greatest professional assets are below.

  1. Is an expert content creator and content strategist across all social channels, but mainly on TikTok, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
  2. Is an extremely good copywriter who knows how to make copy pop and unique to the current campaign we are running and optimized across all social platforms. The ability to come up with different ways to say the same thing through copywriting should come naturally.
  3. Is extremely charismatic on camera and can ideate and create TikTok content with ease.
  4. Fully understands / is obsessed (or at least near-obsessed) with keeping up with trends on all current and emerging social platforms. This person should also be able to quickly understand how to optimize the company's presence on emerging platforms,.
  5. Able to make sure all content gets pushed out on time and coordinate with the necessary parties to ensure this

In general, this person is highly-motivated to join our team/mission and can see themselves THRIVING in this role for years to come. They should also be naturally very organized, and love making sure things happen on time and efficiently. This person should rarely need to be "managed" as they take ownership of their work.

A LITTLE ABOUT US CURRENTLY

We are currently a 4-person team looking to add a fifth (4th person just hired and not pictured yet!). The team is very ambitious, but relaxed interpersonally while also being very industrious in what we’re trying to achieve. We are influencing the entire boba industry to become a little healthier, and it is no easy task. We are looking for someone to add to the team that will hit the ground running and sink their teeth into projects asap. This person will execute their responsibilities fully and thrive in an environment that both gives a lot of freedom, but has a lot of responsibility.

We are a highly-motivated team that are mentally prepared to tackle the goals we've set for ourselves in 2023, and you need to be as well. You should feel that the skills you bring to the team will almost ensure we achieve our goals.

Currently the team is structured as follows:

Neil* - Owner / Founder, Product Development, Sales / Marketing, Creative Direction, Ops, Customer Service

Klair* - Supply Chain & Financial Controller, Ops

Dena - Art Director, Creative Direction, Sales / Marketing

Skunja - Customer Service Rep, Community Manager

YOU - Social Media Manager

*Neil & Klair are married and have been together for over 12 years. ^_^

Job Type

Full-time

This means the candidate we choose to hire will start as a contractor for the first 1 to 2 months (paid at the agreed upon salary rate) and if we are both satisfied in our compatibility, we will hire you full-time at the end of the time period.

Location

Will be hybrid work local to Dallas, TX, but will come on-site a lot more often in the beginning for any onboarding.

Financial assistance for relocation will be available.

Additionally, there may be some weeks where you need to come in every day depending on the scope of a launch or systems needing to be built, but on slower weeks, expect to come in 2-4 days.

We are currently in Frisco, TX, but are looking to finally have an office in the North Dallas area in Q1 of 2023.

Job Title

Depends on skills experience, but Social Media Manager / Senior Social Media Manager is a good start. Can be discussed.

Experience & Degree Requirements

No hard requirements - prove to us you got what we want and you will be in serious consideration for hire.

Although there are no hard requirements, having at least 6-12 months of experience will be a major bonus.

Really understanding / having an obsession (or having a period of obsession in the past) with boba, the fitness industry, and social media are paramount.

Below is some of the experience we may be looking for:

  1. A track record of creating engaging content mainly across TikTok, Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
  2. Been an influencer and have grown a decent personal brand.
  3. Experience with coordinating with others to make sure all content gets published on time across all channels.

  5. You are down to do ‚Äúanything.‚ÄĚ You understand that being the 5th member of a fast-growing start-up means there is potential that you will be asked to do many ‚Äúrandom‚ÄĚ tasks that may or may not relate directly to your job description / job title and you are perfectly ok with this.
  6. I will always be respectful of your time, but there may be windows of time where a campaign requires more hours than normal and you are ok with working the extra hours. I will give you back your time the following week.
