We're on a mission to make account-to-account payments the preferred way to pay and get paid by creating a bank agnostic experiential layer over Europe's faster payment rails with a simple-to-use interface: the VibePay app. Bringing together a holistic view of finances and uniquely making transactions actionable, VibePay is driving innovation with a passionate team who want to achieve more.

What we are looking for

VibePay is looking for a Head of Social Media, to join the Senior Leadership Team and define the strategy, creative vision and tone for how we communicate across all channels.

The successful candidate will be a Social Strategist who understands how tech-driven companies who offer direct-to-consumer products and services put social interaction at the heart of everything they do. You will have hands-on experience building communities and managing social channels across all mediums. You must be on the pulse with culture (music, memes, trends) and skilled at embedding a product and brand into online communication to drive product-led growth.
It's absolutely essential that the right person for this role has an exceptional understanding of popular social media channels, namely TikTok, Instagram, Snapchat, YouTube, and any other notable visual channels that VibePay can creatively leverage.

  • You will be assigned a monthly budget for: content creation (campaign driven), giveaways to amplify channels (to build on our already successful VibePayFriday), to collaborate with influencers, donate and gift collaborations with streamers (via twitch, Facebook and YouTube gaming). This is all with the aim to firstly grow our top funnel, which equates to following/engagement, to then increase brand awareness amongst key target audiences (Social sellers. Streamers. E-commerce businesses)
  • Display great pride in the VibePay brand, adding value to the product and services we offer and committed to organic growth of active users
  • Daily outreach to potential power users, and brands of interest

What we offer

  • Remote working (but ideally London-based)
  • Access to a prestigious sky lounge for hosting potential collaborators, brands, and meetings
