What we do

Riotly Social is a premium B2B Instagram Management Service, we help small/medium businesses who use Instagram to grow their followers, increase engagement, and increase revenues. We are already profitable and growing aggressively. Launched in 2015, Riotly makes it effortless for businesses to reach out to target customers and build relationships that make them a follower and increases their chance of becoming a real customer. On average 80% of our customers experience an increase in sales with our service with many fully developing Instagram as another main source of revenue. We are growing over 10% per month in customers and revenues, over 800 paying customers, and more demand than we can handle. We are now hiring an Account Manager to help us with our fast-paced growth.

Why we do

At Riotly, we are solving two key problems facing small/medium businesses on instagram, first it is hard to differentiate and expose your brand as there are too many businesses. Second it is difficult to derive revenue from customers as there is no active sales assistance to convert viewers into paying customers. We strive to solve these two problems with our platform that helps businesses reach out to their target customers and then interact with them through live chat to help them purchase.

How we do

We look for smart, driven, and individuals who are hungry to learn. We look for hard workers who love to help customers, but also like to think of new ways to solve problems. We love data driven learning, and particularly people who are willing to constantly test and try new things in order to make mistakes and learn from them. If you think you are the right fit for our dynamic, hard working culture, please apply!

You have a history of shipping high-quality production code in one or more of the following Python, Node.js, Java, and C# (if you are proficient in other languages please apply and let us know!). You are skilled working directly on the command line. You embrace automation and take pride in building internal tools to help your team be more efficient.
