It's time for our Alpine Parrot team to grow and we're hiring a part-time Social Media Manager. If you know the perfect candidate, be it you or a friend, we'd like to hear from you. 

About Alpine Parrot:

Alpine Parrot’s mission is to create outdoor apparel that celebrates and encourages underrepresented people in the outdoors, mainly people of size and people of color. Our first product, the Ponderosa Pants, are technical hiking pants made for women’s sizes 14-24. We are a data-driven company that loves to have fun and make friends. Founded in 2019, this apparel brand is new to the scene and looking to spread its wings! 🙌🏽

About the job:

Alpine Parrot is looking for a Social Media Manager! This person will ideally love building social media campaigns and developing content.
