FavourUp is a London-based tech startup. FavourUp helps global fashion, retail, and travel brands create hyper-localised user-generated content (UGC). It is the only platform that pioneers the use of UGC with location data. We specialise advocacy marketing, location data, and community building.
Global brands have multiple markets to deal with, such as American, European, Asian markets, etc. The problem is that creating localised, targeted content is currently very expensive and unscalable because brands need to hire multiple local content teams and agencies to do so. FavourUp solves the problem.
We are funded by the leading online luxury fashion retail platform, Farfetch, and 236 crowd investors through Crowdcube. In addition to Farfetch, we work with top-tier global brands, such as Burberry, Georgia Armani, The Woolmark Company, etc.
We are looking for an experienced Advocates Manager(Japan) who has experienced in managing online communities in the Japanese market. The role will need you to engage with our clients’ existing customers and influencers to make sure they are happy throughout the whole process of advocating the brand through FavourUp’s Geo-targeting Advocacy Platform.
The role will start with the job taking care of one of our premium client, which is an industry-leading luxury brand and has had a good footprint in Japan. You will grow with us from there.
We are a small team targeting global brands as the primary target customer. As you can imagine, it is a challenging role involving a lot of fun. You will be entrepreneurial and have the ability to meet the deadlines. It is important for you to have experience in managing a community on social media for organisations.

It is quite an urgent hire though we expect the right candidate to be with us for many years to come.
If you have what it takes to quickly build stuff from scratch and the ambition to build a world-class, inclusive dev team, we would love to hear from you soon.
