Are you an underestimated Creative Strategist who is ready to step up and own creative production at a venture-backed startup? If the idea of joining a company that’s solving a rarely discussed problem that has a hugely detrimental impact on billions of people’s lives across the globe, in a category-defining way, gets you going, our Paid Social Creative Strategist role might be for you.

We are looking for someone creative and obsessed with user psychology to change the way that people deal with issues in the bedroom and engage in intimate relationships. The perfect person will have experience in end-to-end production of video creatives for paid social in direct-to-consumer companies. We're keen to work with you on a contract basis or offer a full time role if it means we can find an arrangement that works for you.

Before we talk about our product and mission, let’s be clear that although we’re tackling men’s sexual problems right now, you don’t need to be a guy to apply. We want to hear from candidates of all genders. We believe that if we solve these problems, everyone will benefit.

At Mojo, we’re sexually enlightening mankind.

Sexual problems can be embarrassing, we’ve been there. That’s why we’re changing the narrative around issues in the bedroom.

We believe that good sex starts in your head, so we’re not here to push pills or offer quick fixes to the 50% of Millennials and Gen Z who now suffer with psychological issues in the bedroom. Nope, our app is created by the world’s best sexual wellbeing specialists to help our members lead thriving and healthy sex lives 💪. We are looking for someone that is excited to be part of that.

We’ve had crazy global growth, with over 250,000 members in 150 countries and counting. We’re backed by two of Europe’s top VC firms, and you might even have seen us on the front cover of the Sunday Times.
