A note from the Founder 

We are a small team and this will be the 1st marketing role we have hired; the rest of our wonderful team of 7 are on production and manufacturing with 1 person managing customer service.  I have personally managed all our social media over the past 5 years and I'm really excited to find someone to nurture and grow our channels further. I'm searching for someone who loves the type of content we already create but is excited about driving in new directions. You can read about Gigi & Olive here.
