Content Coordinator

Calgary, Alberta


WAVES. Social is an up-and-coming social media agency that operates from Vancouver, Calgary, and beyond. We support brands with social media strategy, content creation, ongoing management, and paid social support. We’re not much for business plans or balance sheets, but we live to help our clients snap, tweet, post, gram, and pin their way into the hearts of their customers. Digital natives at heart, we’re unapologetically optimistic about the internet and we hope you are too!

Social media isn’t just our day jobs, we live for this stuff. When we’re not snapping, gramming, or tweeting on behalf of our clients, we’re on our phones snapping, gramming, and tweeting for fun. We take social media seriously, ourselves ... not so much. WAVES is a small team with big potential and we’re looking for a hard-working, social media enthusiast to join our Calgary-based crew.
