Creative Assistant

All Brainjolt Properties

Brainjolt is a fast-growing, completely revenue-funded new media company based out of Los Angeles that blends “engagement agency” with “viral network” to bring smile-inducing content to huge, happy audiences across the internet.

We are a small team of scrappy yet professional, hard-working learners. And we’re looking for more like-minded, entrepreneurial talent. Also, our benefits aren't half bad.

WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR…

Brainjolt is looking for a clever, enthusiastic, self-motivated Creative Assistant to support the work of the Brainjolt creative team as they strive to surprise and delight the internet. The right person is creative, of course, but not at the cost of being process-oriented, highly organized, and data-driven. They are detail-oriented to the point of nitpicking, but are also easygoing and easy to manage. They’re confident in their decisions but eager to pivot. They are a doer. Additionally, they are practical, not an idealist or an ideologue.

The Creative Assistant should have basic experience in editorial, social media, blogging, project management, and administrative tasks.
