Social Media Manager
Are you a creative that loves marketing and building a business?
Do you geek out on studying social media trends, and binge shorts from the industry leaders?
Do you desire to make an impact in a cutting-edge and fast-growing company while working behind the scenes?
Then the team at Think Media needs you!
Think Media is seeking a full-time Social Media Manager to support the entire company. This role is critical because it creates the backbone needed to push out engaging, educating, empowering, and encouraging content to further build a strong relationship with audiences and potential customers. This position requires someone who is a marketer first, and a creative second.
Think Media teaches the best tips and tools for online videos. The mission is to help 10,000 people go full-time on YouTube. The foundational course, Video Ranking Academy, teaches aspiring YouTubers a proven system for ranking videos, growing an audience, and turning views into income. On top of the course, the company hosts an annual sold-out event, offers a bootcamp and is building a mastermind so top students can have better access to the leader and founder of the company, Sean Cannell.
You are perfect for this role because you have a native desire to serve. You’re an intrapreneur who’s always gravitated towards roles where you can support others and knock out tasks. Your level of organization, attention to detail and speed of accomplishing tasks leaves others quaking in their boots.

About Think Media
Think Media is culturally relevant and a leader in the social media space. Outwardly, the company is obsessed with excellence and serves the community with 100% focus. Inwardly, the team has a very distinct culture that is stronger than the YouTube algorithm for shorts.
Rise and grind! Three days a week, first thing, the team gathers for an all hands meeting. It begins with the sharing of scripture. Then, down to business. The team is always striving for excellence, and treats each other with the utmost honor. You are welcome to be who you are because honor covers all imperfections and recognizes that individuals are a source of blessing. The work environment is healthy, familiar, fun and challenging. Everyone gets along amazingly well and truly cares for and supports each other.
Working hard and hustle is important, but not doing it to the point of burn out or anxiousness. Earlier this year, the entire team helped execute a record breaking challenge resulting in 500+ new students for the VRA Academy. To celebrate, the business was closed on Friday of that week. Team retreats are also a part of this fun culture. Think renting a giant cabin in Big Bear to go snowboarding by day and have game nights with delicious food by night. What to come along?
Cultural Values Include:
- Pursue Success
- Practice Extreme Ownership
- Problem Solving is Business Building
- Grace and Understanding
- Servant Leadership
- Never Stop Growing
