  • Full time Job
  • Ideal Location : Geneva - Paris - Dubai

The position: Social Media Manager at Paradox

Paradox’s mission is the following : help the ambitious defy the statu quo and live the life that truly inspires them.

If you want to have responsibility, autonomy and the feeling of having a strong impact on the growth of a global company, then this is the place for you!

But first, let’s start with a little bit of context…

Paradox has 3 brands : David Laroche’s personal brand, Effective Coaching Institute and last but not least, Business Impact.

For this matter, and as one of Paradox’s Social Media Managers, here are…

🎯 Your 6 main missions :

 

1. Make Paradox’s social networks skyrocket

  • Your goal will be to help develop the brand awareness of Paradox’s brands and showcase their vibe and values in all kinds of content (video, image, written, audio), across all platforms (Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, TikTok) and in every single interaction with the community.
  • Implementing victorious tactics, strategies and systems to deliver extraordinary pieces of content to our audience will be your daily focus

2.  Create a “machine” at producing AWE for our audience

  • Lead the creation process of our different pieces of content
  • Extract the most relevant and suitable parts of our massive stock of video content and manage their redistribution strategically by adapting them to the different social media formats while making them attractive for our social networks (this requires to be more than at ease with the different social media platforms and have a deep understanding of the subtleties and continuous updates of each platform)
  • Create a culture of constant improvement by giving feedback to the social media team members, challenging them to improve on what they do and their ability to reflect our vibe and values.

3.  Make our community engagement grow

  • Plan content strategically, taking into account the various growth factors (audience peak, formats naturally boosted by the algorithm and so on).
  • Play with new trends and keep up to date with the news to adapt our content and be as much as possible in resonance with our audience and its current issues or envies.

4. Systemize Excellence

  • Study Metrics and KPI, report monthly on your successes and failures, systemize what works in the form of processes; share them to our other social media managers
  • Constantly look for new formats that work. Once found, you systemize them to use them at scale while still keep breaking their patterns regularly to surprise our audience
  • Test new videos headlines, thumbnails, post captions and many other factors to improve engagement and reach
  • Create a process to reuse our best content regularly and across different platforms

5. Build long-lasting relationships with influencers and potential partners

  • Establish first contact with influencers and experts in their field in order to create a relationship leading to opportunities of any types
  • Have a meticulous look of the influencers interacting with our content with the goal of building a relationship with them from this point
  • Be on the lookout for influencers’ interests and latest news to create authentic and relevant, customized and contextual messages
  • Communicate with subscribers, influencers and partners with impact, empathy and kindness while being in tune with the vibe of Paradox Nation.

6. Constantly Source and Hire A-Players to support you in your mission (designers, video editors and copywriters among others)

  • You are expected to be proactive in finding great talents to support your mission.
  • All managers are expected to take responsibility for hiring, not just the HR Department.
  • So, you will also be measured on your ability to find great talents.

Your mission is one thing, but it seems essential that we tell you more about us, because we are not looking for people who are just looking for a job.

In fact, the people we recruit have no trouble finding a job, are even already employed or could be freelance, but they join us because they find something with us that they can’t find elsewhere…

Join an adventure full of ambition
Build something great as a team,
and contribute to a project that changes lives and goes beyond them.

But the best thing is for you to read the following and see if it resonates with you

Who are we ?

We believe that too many people end their lives with regrets. That’s why…

Our mission

Give ambitious people the tools to think for themselves and live the life that truly inspires them

Basically we provide a set of tools and strategies on productivity, leadership, coaching and marketing…
through mobile apps, e-learning platforms, events and a strong presence on social media.

Today, the education industry faces three major issues :

1. An effervescence of unfounded theories

To address this issue, we have surrounded ourselves with scientists, top athletes (Fred Bousquet, Frank Leboeuf, Serge Betsen among others), artists (Barry Osborne, producer of The Lord of the Rings and The Matrix), entrepreneurs (Marc Simoncini, Frédéric Mazzella, Gary Vaynerchuk, Janine Allis) and many other leaders and experts to dissect their strategies and share counter-intuitive and thought-provoking ideas.

2. Ideas that are worthwhile but shared in a boring way
and which unfortunately don’t catch attention.

3. Change is hard. And knowledge only works for too few people

We found our answer in the Greek Mythology, with the Ulysses Pact.

Ulysses of his (Greek name Ὀδυσσεύς, Odysseus) wanted to hear the Sirens’ song, but all of those who tried died doing so. So he decided to put wax in his men’s ears so that they could not hear and had them tie him to the mast so that he could not jump into the sea. For the first time ever, someone was able to listen to the sirens while surviving. Ulysses didn’t succeed because of willpower, but because of an ingenious system that gave him no choice but to succeed. And this is what had been called the Ulysses' Pact.

This is why…

Our AMBITION

is to make our trainings about entrepreneurship and coaching as attractive as watching Netflix and as effective as Ulysses' Pact.

In order to become the go-to place for ambitious people to get results.

To remember this every day, we created the 100,000 Dreams Wall, 
It's a great feeling for the team to hang a new dream every day in our office, one that has been fulfilled by one of our clients.

Today, this approach has paid off and has enabled us to exceed one

followers on social media
and to organize online events and training courses attended by thousands of people across the globe.
To have articles or interviews in many media, here are some of them:
That’s all well and good, but we wanted more than just personal branding around David Laroche.
So we created 2 new brands with international ambitions :

 

The first one called Business Tribe to serve established entrepreneurs to Grow Their Business

And the second Effective Coaching Institute to train people become exceptional life and executive coaches.

And that’s where you come in…

  • You love challenges
  • You’re on the lookout for new trends related to social networks and technology and have the ability to adapt to the ever-changing flow of new trends and features on social networks.
  • You have a deep knowledge and understanding of every platform which means you can easily adapt our content and strategy to each social network (whether it’s TikTok, Instagram, Facebook or LinkedIn)
  • TikToks, IG Stories, IG Reels, Carousels (and much more!) have no secrets for you
  • You have a clear understanding of the different platform subtleties and know how to adapt the content to them

  • You are an excellent writer and communicator
  • You are organized, rigorous and pay close attention to details : you are able to handle multiple tasks at the same time, you know how to set priorities and stay focused despite emergencies that may arise. You are excellent at creating and implementing optimal processes.
  • You are creative, proactive and resourceful in your ability to find new systems, processes and solutions to the various issues that a social network may encounter.

  • You have a great ability to learn new tools at a high pace

is made up of women.

Language required :

French : You’ll be asked for your first months at Paradox to create content exclusively in French 

English : Being fully bilingual is a must at Paradox as we plan to break into the international and English-speaking market!

But maybe it’s not for you….

We don’t want people who are just looking for a “job”.
We are inspired by…

a culture of performance and ambition

We want to have an impact
And we dream to play in the big league, yes…

There are basketball clubs that were made to be amateur clubs and others who aspire to play in the NBA.
Both are great, and serve their purpose.

Playing in the NBA demands a lot more from the players, but for some it’s what they always dreamt about.
Some are repulsed by Michael Jordan’s high standards, we are inspired by him, by his dedication to his craft and his thirst for excellence.

For sure we have a lot to do in order to be able to say we play in the big league.
But we know we want it…
For us it’s not about NBA, it’s about creating awe for our clients, designing the best training and impact as many lives as possible.

Some people imagine that they will work in an easy and pressure-free environment.
But we have a very startup oriented culture where everything goes fast, where there are a lot of changes
and where we don’t always tell you exactly what to do and how to do it.

We tell each other things, even if they are uncomfortable, we prefer growth over the comfort of our ego and we like it! With us, expressing disagreement to a manager our to the CEO and knowing how to argue is valued!

We encourage critical and strategic thinking, we question our assumptions, we are attentive to our biases and we try to put our energy where the leverage is the greatest.
Do you see criticism as a personal attack? Are you willing to receive regular feedback to help you progress?
Are you ready to welcome them? To give it to others?

Again, we are aware that sometimes it’s not comfortable
but we know that for some people it’s the kind of environnement they always dreamt about.
If it’s your case, then we’re going to love working with you
(and you’ll be cherished with us!),
And if so come and write the next chapter with us.
