At Scrumptious Pantry we craft tasty condiments to preserve the forgotten flavors of rare fruits and vegetables (think heirloom tomatoes, but peppers, cucumbers, berries ….). We are a start-up that has tremendous growth opportunities: national distribution is in place and we are ready to excite the palates and hearts of the American consumer.

In order to help us tell our story we are looking for an intern to support our social media marketing through the holiday season. If you like to snap pictures of your dishes for instagram, pin recipes or share recipes with your facebook friends, this internship is for you! It is a great opportunity to experience first hand an incredibly dynamic market and gain valuable know-how in social media strategies and tools.

Project scope includes:

Editorial Planning
> Continuously monitor all social media channels (pinterest, instagram, twitter, facebook, google plus), analyze success factors of editorial calendar and suggest updates when appropriate
> Create content for blog and social media channels
> Identify other consumer brands for collaborative social media initiatives (give-aways, blog articles etc)

Community Building
> Monitor social media channels and actively engage with our customers, both consumers and retail
> Create awareness among journalists, influencers and opinion leaders by thoughtful and targeted social media interaction
> Establish relationships with bloggers, instagramers, companies and non-for profits to negotiate collaborations/partnerships

E-Mail Marketing

> Establish marketing strategies using personalized messages and segmented mass emailing with the objective to increase online sales

> Continuously monitor analytics of website traffic and e-commerce results. Continue to improve the usability and content of website based on customer feedback.

The candidate will report directly to the founder and should have a “start-up” mindset: entrepreneurial, enthusiastic & positive minded. Candidate must have strong written communication skills, an understanding of the Internet, blogging (WordPress), and social media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and own a smart phone. Interest in good food, cooking & sustainable agriculture a plus, but not necessary.

Compensation: based upon experience; a bonus structure is in place with the achievement of clearly defined targets
Duration: until 12/31/2015, part-time a possibility
Location: Chicago (Logan Square), telecommute a possibility

This position is ideal for someone who is interested in pursuing a career in Interactive Media or Marketing.
