This is an amazing opportunity for an enthusiastic, results-driven Social Media Manager who can nurture an engaged global community and help us achieve ambitious growth targets.

Working with many of the world’s biggest museums and the most exciting names in art, you’ll be joining Smartify’s award-winning digital team.
