We’re Quipster. Our unique, charming characters – ‘Quipsters’ - form the basis of our t-shirt brand. It all started as an experiment amongst three friends, who printed some character drawings on a small batch of t-shirts and sold them at a pop-up store in Salzburg, Austria, in 2013. Today we’re proud to have shops open in Vienna and Salzburg and an emerging global fan base. We’re a small, young team. We’re passionate about the characters and the products. And we’re growing. Jump on board! You are welcome to get to know us better by visiting our Instagram profile: https://www.instagram.com/quipster/ Or visiting our website: https://www.quipster.eu/
ABOUT THE ROLE
We’re looking for a creative content creator and social media manager that can help us grow online!
About you: • Strong graphic skills – experience in photo and video editing, illustration, layout design etc. An all-rounder that can use their technical and creative skills to curate and develop content that is visually appealing and engaging. • A playful aesthetic. • A strong interest in story-telling and a sense of humour (if you’re having fun, then our audience is probably too!) • Native-level English fluency. • German fluency a big bonus. • A confident copywriter (we’re not looking for academic-level proficiency, but solid grammar and spelling is a must). • An interest in and a strong understanding of Instagram and Facebook features. Prior experience in managing social media profiles a bonus. • You take ownership and are well-organised. • Able to follow a pre-defined brand aesthetic and understand the importance of building a consistent visual profile and tone of voice. • Understand the importance of letting visuals speak first and copy/text take a supporting role. • Strong attention to detail. • Hands-on attitude (we’re a lean team!) • A self-starter – keen to pick up new skills and see your work have an impact.
About the role: • Curation of existing content, building a coherent brand story on our online channels. • Content creation: Instagram & FB posts (visuals and captions), stories and reels, website banners, newsletter visuals, etc. • Community management: replying to comments and messages, resharing stories. • Copywriting: captions, blog posts, occasional newsletters. • Anything else that might crop up and we need your help on.
We’re looking for someone who can grow with us and support us on a ongoing basis. This could be the perfect side gig for students, globe-trotting nomads, stay-at-home parents or someone simply looking to generate some extra income.
Days: 5-8 days a month, depending on availability. We can set rigid work hours or make it flexible.
Contract: freelance, rolling basis.
Remote: you can be based anywhere in the world, ideally with working hours that overlap with the CEST / Vienna time zone.
Next steps: if this sounds like you, please get in touch with your portfolio or a sample of your work that demonstrates some of the above skills. We’re looking forward to hearing from you!
