- Create, schedule, and analyze all the social media updates that are sent to the Buffer social media profiles
- Create paid marketing campaigns on social to help us reach more customers and interested people in improving their social media strategy
- Embody the Buffer voice and tone in every tweet, update, and conversation
- Be data-informed about what's working on social and what's not
- Experiment with new growth strategies and ideas
- Help us explore new social media networks, apps, and tools
- Work together with the crafter team to share insight and strategies on the Social blog
