Full Time/On-site

 

Who We Are

 

Launched in 2020, Geojam is a social engagement platform that has already generated meaningful, passion-fueled fan engagement with celebrities such as Mariah Carey, Machine Gun Kelly, and Nyjah Huston. In one year, Geojam has served as a bridge for fans to engage directly with artists, athletes, and influencers in the world of music. Geojam is the evolution of passive social media engagement (i.e., tweeting, posting, sharing, etc.), encouraging a two-way dialogue and interaction between artists, creators, and their fans with the use of gamification and real-life experiences.  Our vision is to redefine fan engagement in all industries that harness influence, including sports, fashion, cryptocurrency, gaming, art, and film/television. 


We believe in empowering the world to experience moments together by challenging the status quo. We are seeking passionate and driven individuals who want to join us in paving the future of the creator economy.
