Munchtime brings strangers together over food. We are in the business of strengthening local communities by making it easier for folks to find friends anywhere they go. Our mission is to build a platform where real-world connections are meaningful and fun. Ready to join our movement? You will have numerous opportunities to use your skills to shape the development of our vision.

You're a dreamer, talker and have an uncanny ability to make people laugh. You know how to express yourself in so many words and understand the power of listening. You believe the world can be a beautiful place, that everyone has a story to share, and celebrate diversity.

The work:

We're looking for an individual capable of working organically to grow our voice, as well as concerns, within the context of Munchtime's value proposition - primarily on Instagram and tiktok.

  • Analysis & Insights: Understand how our social media drives website conversions and traffic to our sign-up page.
  • Content Creation: Work actively on photography and content creation.

Supporting you:

Students will be guided and mentored in the realm of social media, advertising and creative development with our experience working in the industry. Access to tools and technology such as Adobe Suite, Facebook, Canva and others will be provided for the purpose of completing required work.


Desirable Skills:
