Social Media Strategist

Newport Beach, California 610 Newport Center Drive, 92660
Social Media Strategist (23032346)



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.



If you’ve seen Chipotle on social – this is that job. The opportunity is simple: it’s the dream job for any culture-obsessing, burrito-loving, internet junkie who wants to work at a purpose-driven brand with scale. Need we say more??


Oh, but we will. We are looking for someone who brings the creative ideas, solutions, and support for social activations, influencer partnerships, collabs, and national campaigns. This person will work with members of the social media team, agency partners, and cross-functional organizations, pushing the work to benefit the modern consumer, elevating our social strategy, and developing brand content that people actually want to see in their feed. This person knows how social content and IRL experiences are consumed and what motivates people to take action. They will align the social strategy and tactics to meet program and business goals, prioritizing ground-breaking work that makes people pay attention.


This person will be a student of culture, constantly identifying future trends and monitoring the social and news landscape as it relates to Chipotle, the food industry, and culture, engaging with customers and amplifying real-time opportunities with a bias for action to move quickly on ideas (as in…the viral Corn Kid video was produced in 17 hours). That’s what we’re looking for.
