Jellysmack

This is a Full-time position in Los Angeles, CA posted September 8, 2021.

Jellysmack is the global creator company that detects and develops the world’s most talented video creators on social media. We’re an optimistic crew who naturally goes the extra mile, has a glass-half-full mindset, and sees challenges as opportunities. We look for positive people who think outside the box, are inventive, bold, lead change, and believe that teamwork matters.

The Role

This position requires cross-functional collaboration with our global offices (including Los Angeles, New York and Paris).
