Manager, Social Media

Newport Beach, California 610 Newport Center Drive, 92660
Manager, Social Media (22034029)



Food served fast does not have to be a typical fast-food experience.  Chipotle has always done things differently, both in and out of our restaurants. We are changing the face of fast food, starting conversations, and directly supporting efforts to shift the future of farming and food. We hope you will join us as we continue to learn, evolve, and shape what comes next on our mission to make better food accessible to everyone.



We’re looking for a creative, passionate, no-limits-minded Social Media Manager to create content for Chipotle’s social media channels including TikTok, Instagram, BeReal, Twitter, and Facebook. You’ll strategize, develop, and post content that drives culture, increases brand relevancy, and encourages fans to take action. You’ll work with our Social Listening team to amplify daily engagements from fans about Chipotle and on our owned content to identify bigger opportunities, drive conversation, and build relationships with super fans, like-minded partners, and influencers. You’ll be a student of culture, constantly identifying future trends with a bias for action to activate against ideas quickly. You’ll be energized by our iconic brand and organizational culture with a desire to play a pivotal role on a team of fellow culture-hunters and Chipotle enthusiasts.


As Social Media Manager, you’ll collaborate with partners across the Marketing, Communications, Legal, and Product Departments and report directly to our Director - Social, Influencer & Web3.
