(Senior) Makeup Community Lead (f/m/x)

Permanent employee, Full-time · Berlin

What we do

Our latest pre-launch startup is building a new way of shopping makeup online by combining the potential of augmented reality with a new take on social commerce. Their goal is to create an inclusive experience that embraces self-love, moving away from traditionally narrow marketing beauty standards by putting the users (and not models) at the core of the experience. 

The venture is based at the AI Campus Berlin and financially backed by Merantix, an AI Venture Studio with a track record of 7 incubated companies and more than 120+ team members employed. Our growing ecosystem constitutes a unique brand with a shared tech and operational infrastructure that attracts talent, resonates with industry partners, and leverages the proven network and product building experience. You will be joining an experienced founding team with experience in building and launching ventures internationally.

Your role

We want to build the go-to makeup community for Gen Z and we are looking for someone that is eager to challenge the industry by adapting it to the needs & values of our audience in new, creative ways. You will bring your expert knowledge to set it up from scratch with the support of the team. 

If you want an opportunity to grow as a leader in an environment where you can unleash your full creative power while creating a massive positive impact in an industry that you are passionate about, this is it! More specifically, you will:

  • Design the overall community strategy for our product and company;

  • Set, plan and implement campaigns;

  • Craft engaging text, image and video content for all social media accounts aiming for virality;

As one of the first hires, you will influence the company’s culture, its operating philosophy and generate a long-lasting impact on the business by shaping our brand’s voice from day one. 

Your profile

You are experienced in social media, community growth and viral/growth hacks. You bring extensive knowledge on beauty and makeup trends (ideally by being a consumer yourself) and how the Gen Z audience engages among them and with brands. More specifically, you bring:
