Task & Purpose is looking for a dynamic social media editor to join our team. 

Our ideal candidate is an enthusiastic self-starter who can handle a variety of tasks without breaking a sweat.

The social media editor will develop a strategy to manage and grow our existing audience while always keeping an eye out for new platforms and communities.
