Calling all tweeters, hipsters and dog lovers: HootSuite is hiring!
The Vancouver-based social media company is hosting an employment fair on Oct. 8 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. in an effort to fill over 100 job openings. It seeks anyone with a passion for social media and a work-hard play-hard mentality, said a Friday news release.
HootSuite is sweetening its hiring pitch with "Hootlandia," a "Portlandia"-inspired YouTube video that shows off the company's dog-friendly East 8th Avenue headquarters, where workers unwind with beer, foosball and ping pong.
In keeping with its Twitter-based business, the hiring fair even has a hashtag: #HootHire.
Among other positions, HootSuite is looking for an office manager, account managers, a social media coach, a mobile product manager and many more, according to its careers page. Interested applicants should come with a resume and an idea of what position they're looking for.
The hiring blitz comes just over two months after HootSuite secured $165 million for future growth in what was called the "largest ever deal in Canadian venture capital history for a software company."
HootSuite previously came under fire for hiring unpaid interns, a policy that attracted backlash on Reddit. The company later reversed that policy, agreeing to pay all interns and stump up back pay for those who hadn't previously been compensated.
