Social Media Manager

Job description

Our marketing and communications team currently needs you. Maybe not you reading this if it’s not your type of role but you could help out by telling a friend who fits in. But before you tell a friend or apply here’s what we are looking for.

We are looking for someone that can create witty content for social media. Someone who can create banter and drive engagement on social media. If you're good at dropping puns, sarcasm, and wit on social media you will fit right into this role.

The role doesn’t require previous experience however, you definitely need to be able to create witty content.

Job description

If you were to coin what you would be doing at Quidax in one sentence it would be speaking to people like a human being. A simple, smart, and witty human being. We want to sound like your friend, that friend that gives you gist, good laughs and once or twice you exchange harsh words with (after all s/he is human).

We definitely do not want to sound like your bank.

You will be part of shaping the brand voice and personality for Quidax.

You will also be the person to spot conversations on social media that you think we should engage in. Even conversations like this which have nothing to do with Bitcoin or any other cryptocurrency.

We frequently like to banter about the food, TV shows, and top 10 things to do when we are pretending we are working.

Here’s an example of what your day to day at Quidax might look like:

  • You will be creating content for social media channels as well as responding to comments and direct messages on our social media pages

  • Monitor industry-related and competitive social channels for trending news and ideas.

  • Analyze insights for social media activity to drive engagement, shares, and traffic to our website

  • Count the colors of the rainbow

  • Create weekly and monthly editorial calendars to promote Quidax on various social media websites

  • Think up ideas for campaigns we can run on social media e.g global cocktail day campaign, brideprice challenge or some random cool stuff.

  • Support your team at events and take pictures with cool people

  • Create an infographic of the best amala joints in Lagos

Job requirements

About you

We are a company of learners in a lot of ways. We don’t expect you to be perfect so we would prefer if you were hungry and willing to learn. We like humble people too.

We are looking for people who are driven, patient and empathetic. We are looking for the kind of person who a reader would say your writing is rubbish and I can’t understand. Instead of taking offence (actually, it’s okay to take a little bit of offence, we are humans) but the larger response would be to check yourself and your article to see where you might have gone wrong and what you can do to make it right.

We are very big on discipline as one of our core values, because we believe it is the soul of an army and it can make great things happen in the long run. So we have rules that have consequences attached to them and then we encourage everyone to govern themselves to do what is required and go over and beyond in service of our customers.

We are big on openness and candour in the workplace, so if you see something that doesn’t make sense, it is your responsibility to say so. We are not afraid to disagree and argue about things so far, we are doing it with the purpose of bringing out the best idea and not bringing people down.

We also like to have fun, we can look quite chilled, our interviews can be really great and funny experiences if you are not too wound up, we try to make you loosen up in the first couple of minutes and just have a conversation and not just give generic interviewy answers, we hate those. We are fans of alcohol and parties (after work hours) so if your thing is shots, beer or both, you are in good company and we know a great catfish plug.

We are a cryptocurrency company, building to be the most influential crypto company in Africa, but it isn’t a crime to not know jack about cryptocurrency. Every single person here learns on the job and we are more than happy to teach.

We are currently in Nigeria and are building for Africa.

Our vision to create a world where sending money and value around the globe is as easy as sending a text message, and we believe this future is going to be brought to your courtesy of digital currencies.

  • Integrity: being true & honest; to ourselves and those counting on us
  • Customers: the reason we exist is that customers exist, so we love and respect them
  • Excellence: doing things in a first-class way, going above and beyond.
  • Discipline: leadership and doing what you say you would, no matter how we feel.

About Pay and Benefits:

We pay competitively in the Nigerian market for the matched experience and role.

You also have a company that cares about you and your well being, wants to do everything to ensure that your life inside and outside work is the most satisfying it can be.

How to Apply
