It’s hard to believe that until relatively recently, social media was just not something. Now it affects everything from the way we shop to the way we work and how we communicate with friends and family. It is integrated into every aspect of our lives.
As a result, social platforms are one of the most popular tools in the marketing and communication arsenal of any company. But as we all know, this is an industry that is constantly evolving and changing. So, with that in mind, we emphasize some roles in the most popular platforms for 2022 – and there are many others on our job board.
Did you know that 36.9% of the world’s population are Facebook users? That’s a staggering number, and while he’s no longer the new kid on the block, Facebook’s huge audience means it just can’t be ignored. The platform is mostly liked by Millennials, with the largest demographic group being users between the ages of 25 and 35.
It is worth noting that Facebook in its current form will not exist forever, as founder Mark Zuckerberg is directing the company to its new meta incarnation.
But right now you can check out a selection of open roles in Meta. And with offices across Europe, including Switzerland, Germany, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Spain, Italy and Ireland, you’re also spoiled for choice based on location.
Experiencing huge growth, TikTok is the newcomer to the package. The platform enjoyed explosive growth during the Covid-19 pandemic and has a 57% user base of women. In addition, 32% of TikTok users are between 25 and 34 years old. This young, female-distorted demographic is powerful – the company only launched in 2017, and just two years later, TikTok was one of the five most downloaded apps in the world.
And it’s only growing – many job seekers see the role in the platform as a great way to build a meaningful career. 79% of employees say that this is a great place to work and employees are given great responsibility to shape their roles and projects. In Europe, the company has a presence in cities, including Paris, Berlin, Dublin and London.

While Pinterest has been around for a long time – 12 years – the image-sharing platform saw record growth in 2020, gaining more than 100 million active users per month between January and December of that year.
There are now about 431 million active users per month, and in February 2021 Pinterest reported 459 million active users per month, which is 37%, the largest increase on an annual basis ever seen.
As a visual search engine, it offers brands the opportunity to target customers while they are still at the very beginning of the sales funnel. In addition, it provides consumers with a hassle-free shopping experience thanks to built-in connections. Pinterest has a large footprint in Europe with offices in Ireland, the UK, Germany, Spain, Italy and France.
Open roles in this women-friendly social platform are available on our job board.
Of course, there are many other social sites that offer growth and, as a result, job opportunities. Owned by Meta WhatsApp is one. With an impressive two billion active users a month, CEO Will Cathcart said that approximately 175 million people send messages to WhatsApp business accounts every day.
A veteran of social media, YouTube was founded in 2005 as a video dating website. Things did not go exactly according to plan, and its three founders, Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Javed Karim, sold the company to Google for $ 1.65 billion in 2006. It is now the second largest search engine on the Internet.
