Hi @noemi . Is this opportunity opened for people living beyond Europe? I would like to know if I can give it a try :slight_smile:

Hei @anu, it is open for non-Europeans. It would be probably more challenging as social media needs to work for Europe time zones but other than that you’re welcome to put yourself forward for the position.

Hi guys, I discovered this platform thanks to a friend of mine and I am very excited about the many interesting thinks that I am finding. This is my the first post. I deal with growth hacking for startups in Italy, I live in Ravenna, above all for environmental and social sustainability. Social media ads are not my first skill as I mainly deal with open sorce marketing automation tools, contents curation and funnels. I think this could be an interesting challenge …
