We Are Social and we need a geek


We have grown up very quickly. When I joined We Are Social nearly two-and-a-half years ago it was eight of us crammed round a desk designed for six that we were renting off another agency, and we had to keep swapping laptop chargers as there weren’t enough to go round. Now we’re forty-five people in London alone, with an awesome office in Clerkenwell, and we are the ones renting deskspace to promising startups. We’re not just building a team of the best social media professionals in London, we’re also looking for a great team to support them – and that team includes a IT Manager based here in London.

Working in social media, it’s obviously important our internet connection and office IT are working in tip-top condition all the time. But those machines don’t run themselves, and we need someone to help with the essential task of making everything run smoothly – from first-line support for your colleagues to designing & improving our architecture and strategy so we can handle growth in the future. You’ll need to be an expert in supporting Mac OS X (desktop & server), Office for Mac and Google Apps and be experienced in network management and security for an office our size. People skills and a good bedside manner are essential. If you can code in PHP or Python, hack shell scripts in Linux, or know your way round Twitter and Facebook, even better. Agency experience is great, but we’re happy to take anyone with the right skills and mindset regardless of background.

You’ll be working with some brilliant people with amazing clients, for a leading agency that has grown astronomically in two years. In return we can promise a competitive salary with benefits, and as many games of table tennis as you like. On top of that, it’s an opportunity to be part of turning an existing success story into an even greater one. If you’re looking to make the next step up to take a leading role in shaping that story, we’d love to hear from you.

If you’re interested, we’d love to hear from you – send us your CV and cover letter to [email protected]. No agencies, please.
