About Applied

Applied is the platform for debiased hiring. We’re pushing back against outdated hiring practices by redesigning the process to be more inclusive, more data-driven, and better for candidates. Our product is born out of scientific research, data-driven methodologies and is leaving CVs behind to surface the best candidates. Our mission is to supercharge the worlds social mobility by upending how people get hired - come join us!

Given what we do, we’re keen to build diverse teams. As we've moved to a remote-first working style, we trust people to work enough hours to do good work, at times that suit you and your team.

You can read more about us in the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, TechCrunch and New Scientist and learn more about how we give Candidates useful feedback here.

The role

We’re looking for a Marketing and Social Media Associate who is looking to make their mark. We need someone who will be able to help us up our social media game. 

They will be a natural content creator who will work directly with our Content Manager to find the best ways to produce, edit and distribute great content, as well as supporting the team with other aspects of start-up marketing.

We believe that diverse and inclusive teams both perform better and make for a richer experience at work. So we’re open to candidates wherever they’ve derived their skill and passion from for this role. We’re looking for someone who’s impatient to deliver and keen to get stuck in and exhibits the below characteristics.

Our Marketing and Social Media Associate should:

  • Be passionate about creating brilliant content, with a great understanding of what content works best for each of our channels.

  • Be creative, with an eye for design and good at generating ideas

  • Be empowered by an entrepreneurial environment - you’re a self-starter who can work collaboratively and autonomously

  • Have a love for learning - in a startup, none of us have all of the answers, so an openness and willingness to constantly learn are essential.

  • Be a data-driven and analytical thinker, measuring what works well and what doesn’t.

In your first 6 months at Applied you'll:

  • Help translate our product’s value and impact into marketing messages.

  • Plan and execute a full calendar of social media content, getting the whole business involved.

  • Assess the performance of different channels and optimise accordingly.

  • Work closely with the Content Marketing Manager to produce written, visual or video content.

  • Identify new trends, influencers and outreach channels.

  • Develop a measurement framework and regularly report on metrics.

  • Assist the marketing team with email and nurture campaigns through Hubspot.

  • Assist the marketing and sales teams with arranging events, speaking engagements and other appearances.

Like the rest of the Applied team members you'll benefit from:

  • Equity in the business

  • Wellbeing benefit & access to Spill

  • Flexible and remote working options

  • Involvement in other aspects of the business, from strategy, management and training, to shaping team culture

  • Being part of something that's both commercially successful and socially important
