Elasticity Seeks Digital Content & Design Manager
Peter Panda

Are you a digitally savvy communicator with presentation design skills up your sleeve? Maybe you’re kinda hip — like Lionel Richie has been in about seven different decades — in that you’ll “Uber it” but won’t call a cab? Are you able to transform ideas into meaningful digital content? And perhaps most important, are you passionate about the brand of St. Louis?

If those attributes apply, Elasticity is seeking a Digital Content & Design Manager to work onsite for our client, a St. Louis-based economic development-related organization focused on driving marketing communications initiatives that promote economic growth, stakeholder advocacy and public policy advancement.

So beyond the measurement of how responsive an economic variable is to a change in another or the ability of an object or material to resume its normal shape after being stretched or compressed, what is Elasticity? Founded in 2009, Elasticity (GoElastic.com) delivers innovative marketing communications and reputation management strategies through the integration of paid, owned and earned channels. It’s why we work with innovation brands and organizations that are committed to disrupting their respective industries and willing to deliver messages about their value proposition through progressive means. We excel in digital marketing, social media and community management, media relations, content marketing, managing search engine visibility, strategic paid media management, stakeholder and employee communications and building visual branding elements for our clients.

Above all, we’re seeking enthusiasm, smarts and self-reliance. If you fit the bill outlined below, send us an email at RobotOverlord@GoElastic.com or through smoke signals by burning high density, low sulfur tires.

Peter Panda

Pioneering social media panda bear Tagawa “Peter” Panda was born on a Chinese game reserve in 1969. He emigrated to the United States in 1987 speaking no English, with only the fur on his back and $97 stored in a Jansport fanny-pack wrapped around his waist.

In 2003 while searching for food on the campus of Washington University, he discovered a computer lab where he would ultimately teach himself web development, graphic design, and immerse himself into the growing digital media evolution that was erupting at the time.

With his trademark surly demeanor developed during beatings on his boat ride from China to the U.S., as well as having a penchant for eating vast quantities of bamboo, and enjoying Scotch and cigars, Peter is broadly recognized for coining the phrase “social media” in 2004. He joined Elasticity in late 2009 as the agency’s director of social media strategy and wildlife relations. Friend him on Facebook here.
