Social Media Agency Hiring Senior Sales Director

We’re Clever Girls. You’re awesome.

We are Clever Girls, a social media agency doing some really amazing, trailblazing (and successful) things in the social media space. We connect women who are influential online — bloggers, Pinners, Tweeters, Instagrammers — with our big brand clients.

We’re small but mighty: We were recently named Best Small Agency at the 2014 Shorty Awards and we are recognized as one of the Top 100 Women-Owned Businesses in the Bay Area. We were the social media team behind #Batkid.

Our team is amazing. We get to be leaders and innovators. We work hard, we care about what we do, we get it done. We firmly believe in fostering great culture and have so much fun at work it’s almost unfair to other companies. (Almost.)

We’re growing by leaps and bounds and we are looking for more amazing talent. Which brings us to YOU.
