OpenSail Digital Agency

Company :  OpenSail Digital Agency
Location :  Saskatoon, SK, Canada
Job Type :  Full-time
Job Status :  Permanent

OpenSail is Saskatchewan’s fastest growing digital agency. We manage web presence and digital advertising for businesses of all sizes. We are currently looking for professional, vibrant, and resourceful Social Media Strategists to join our team.

This is not a sales job, but B2B sales experience would be helpful! As a strategist, you will get to work with successful local businesses and help devise the ultimate digital marketing strategy. You will need to learn everything there is to know about their business and develop and execute the digital portion of their marketing plan or vision.

It's a big job with lots of moving parts. From telling the business's story on social media to integrating with their current marketing funnel, to every little thing in between. But, don't worry, you won't be alone! You will be joining our team of digital marketing professionals and we work in a highly collaborative environment. Each member of our team brings unique talents, knowledge, and skill-sets to the table and you will gain access to our pooled knowledge. Our industry is always changing, so you don't have to know everything, but you have to know how to Google anything and be willing to learn and adapt to change on a daily basis.

There are some core skills required to succeed in digital marketing.

  • Very high computer literacy.
  • Excellent command of oral and written English, especially grammar.
  • You need to be using one or more social media platforms regularly and have a very good understanding of how it works, both technically and socially.
  • Conscientious work ethic. We’ll teach you how to do awesome things, but it’s up to you to get all of your work done on time, even the boring stuff.
  • Creative problem-solving skills. This job can be very challenging, and you need to go beyond merely following directions, and instead find novel and creative solution to problems.
  • A dedication to excellence. Before working here some of our staff completed honours degrees, some of them worked at pizza places, but all of them are committed to being excellent at whatever they find themselves doing.

If you have experience in 3 or more of any of these you might be just the person we are searching for.

  • Photography, video or sound recording at a hobbyist level or higher.
  • Basic knowledge of HTML or JavaScript.
  • Graphic design for print or web.
  • Working for or with small businesses.

We all come from different backgrounds (Restaurant Owner, Salon & Spa Consultant, Management, Marketing, Journalism, Graphic Design etc), but there is one thing we all have in common and that is we love to see our clients and local businesses thrive and succeed!

We are rapidly growing and this position does have future career advancement potential within our company.
