July is Hiring
Social Media & Content Lead
Who we are:
July is a modern appliance company, disrupting the traditional appliance business. We seek to delight customers with beautiful products with service models that make getting your product as easy as can be.

Backed by our best-in-class engineering and manufacturing partnerships, we are uniquely positioned to shake up the market - in the A/C category and beyond.
We put the customer at the core of everything we do: from addressing pain points in the product (aesthetics, ease of installation) to the experience (delivery and environmental impact), we are changing the business.

- Background in graphic design, social media, branding, art direction, copywriting, production. Proficiency in Figma, Adobe Creative Cloud, or similar programs is required.
- A love of social media and all things consumer branding; you’re on top of trends, following your favorite brands, and clued in on interesting cultural movements.
- A natural eye for aesthetics and can feel and own the July aesthetic. Photography skill is a plus.
- Highly creative mind -- always thinking of new concepts, branding activations, fun partnership ideas for a consumer-facing brand like ours.
- Ability to manage and multi-task across several initiatives at once, be it email outreach, photo editing, working with agencies.
- Strong written communication skills; engaging verbal communication and presence to work directly with brand partners and customers -- and go live on Instagram Stories!
- Detail-oriented, willing to work to make all creative “just right”
- Entrepreneurial spirit and eagerness to learn on the fly every day
- Passion for consumer startups and excitement to join a small but mighty team!
