Job Description

Description

We’re a global creative agency, with more than 1000 people in 16 offices around the world, 200+ here in our Milan’s office. We deliver world-class creative campaigns and strategies based on social insights, for best-in-class brands.

At We Are Social we believe that teamwork and respect for everyone’s contribution can lead to great results. We believe that flexibility and the ability to adapt to changes by taking advantage of opportunities is a fundamental characteristic for achieving success. And we also believe that always looking for new challenges and going beyond what is due is the right attitude to always do better.

If you think that our way of approaching everyday work can really make a difference and you want to put yourself to the test then you may be the person we are looking for.

What’s Editorial

We Are Social (WAS, for friends) aims at establishing meaningful relationships between brands and people. Editorial—within WAS—is in the business of building digital places where those relationships can develop and be renewed over time. These are mostly social media channels where communities gather.

Editorial comprises writers and editors: we are the ones who use platforms (we post, we reply, we edit on mobile). We know how channels actually work. Social media has zero barriers to entry: we are the ones who try stuff out for free and have fun doing so. We don’t lecture others on how sh*t should be done.

We want to be in on the jokes. We ask “yes, but why?”. We don’t do things that “have always been done this way”.

We make mistakes. Loads of them. Nothing a Squidward meme or a quote from The Office (how normie of us…) won’t make up for.

If you are looking for a place where you can “make things but also slides” (because after all it’s slides we need to pitch what we want to do), if you are fascinated by the at times inexplicable ways in which this weird thing that is the internet works, if you are the one who “knows the meme” and waves hands trying to explain some super odd TikTok that ended up on your FYP, and if you would like this to be your job, then we are probably looking for you.
