I'm excited to announce that we're expanding the social media team at Fast Company. No one covers innovation and creativity the way Fast Company does - in large part because we've got an extraordinarily innovative and creative staff working behind the scenes here every day. I'm looking for an energetic and motivated Social Media Producer to help me with the exciting social editorial initiatives we have in the works.
