Hasselblad is hiring: Creative Coordinator

We’re looking to recruit another photographer to serve a couple of roles: most importantly, to engage with the photographic community via social media and other outreach, and to shape the way Hasselblad presents new products and creative ideas going forward. It’s an opportunity to conceive and produce unconventional campaigns together with the rest of the team and the ambassador pool: we have the paradox of producing the tools, but also needing to provide some inspiration on how to use them. In addition, it isn’t limited to just marketing and community engagement – the role is flexible and could span everything from product development to market strategy, and therefore suited to somebody with an entrepreneurial bent. After all, a photographer’s creative needs are best understood by another photographer.

Personally, I believe that the best candidates are unlikely to be found via conventional recruitment channels or with ‘typical’ marketing or communications-type CVs; I thought it would therefore be an interesting experiment to push this one back to the community to find the right passionate enthusiast who’s most importantly already a photographer. Precisely because the role might suit a very wide range of candidates, we’ve deliberately left the requirements somewhat open ended: the most important thing will be a convincing reason why you’re the right person for the job (and that’s not necessarily qualification-based). You’ll also be interacting with me quite a lot in your day to day work. The position is to be based in either Gothenburg, Sweden or Shenzhen, China, and salary is negotiable.
