Social Media Coordinator
We’re Hiring a Humbly Confident Social Media Coordinator
We promote “You Need a Budget,” the best budgeting software and educational resources around. (Those in the know call us YNAB, which is pronounced: “why-nab.”) For more than a decade, people have been buying YNAB and then telling their friends what a difference it has made in their lives. Google us
, or read some of our reviews on the app store
, and you’ll see what we mean. We love sharing something that has a huge positive impact on people’s lives.
For this position, we’re looking for a social media aficionado who is enthusiastic about sharing YNAB to the far reaches of the internet. Do you have the ability to create can’t-take-my-eyes-off-it content, write enchanting copy, and coordinate/play nice with others? We’re looking for someone who screams YNAB through and through (but not like…actual screaming) and is comfortable being their delightful self in front of an audience.
Want to talk about tools and platforms? We’ve got a growing social media presence on TikTok, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter—where we make budgeting fun, friendly, and accessible for the masses. Our content is organized in Notion, images are created in Canva, scheduled in Later and Agorapulse, and communicated via Slack. Not familiar with these tools yet? That’s ok! Just have an appetite for learning and that’ll take you far around here.
And that’s not all—we have big plans for our social media team, including expanding our short-form video reach, trying out some ads on SnapChat, and establishing a presence on Pinterest. Could you be the one to help us grow into these new territories?
- You have at least two years of social media experience. For us, this means you feel comfortable navigating different platforms, have a basic knowledge of social media algorithms, and love to create content.
- You’re located somewhere between the Eastern Time Zone (UTC-4) and the Pacific Time Zone (UTC-8). OR, you’re willing to adjust your working hours for those time zones so that you can attend meetings with the rest of the marketing team.
*Well, firm-ish. If, for instance, you know you’re a great fit for this role but fall a little short of the two-year requirement, we encourage you to go ahead and apply. We don’t need you to be the perfect candidate on paper. (On a similar note, we know imposter syndrome
can be a powerful force, and may discourage fantastic people from applying. Please apply anyway. Many of us here have it too, so you’re in good company.)
We promise to go into more detail about what you’ll be working on! But first, you need to know if you’ll even like working with us. Let’s talk a bit about life at YNAB.
We’re profitable, bootstrapped, and growing. YNAB started in 2004 and we haven’t taken any outside funding—we’re in it for the long haul. We have one overarching requirement when it comes to joining our team: our original Core Values Manifesto
has to really click with you. If you’re nodding emphatically while reading it, you’ll probably really like it here, and we can’t wait to hear from you!
We live our Core Values every day at YNAB, and we mean it when we say we are an equal opportunity employer. We believe that a diversity of backgrounds, abilities, beliefs, and experiences are critical to our success, and we are passionate about creating a welcoming, supportive, and collaborative environment for all employees. All are encouraged to apply as we continue to grow a smart, hard-working, and diverse team who loves working together to build something that matters.
We also work really hard, together, to make working at YNAB an amazing experience, and we were (humbly) proud to be named Fortune’s #1 Best Small Company to Work For
for the last two years. We have a team full of truly exceptional people—the kind you’ll be excited to work with. We’d love to introduce you to a few of them!
