Lonely AF? Here’s Cupid!

single_af_banner1

 

Suck at love? Cupid is ready to drop some knowledge, and help give your love life a happy ending. For MTV International’s new global TV show Single AF, our New York office created the “Cupid Bot”, a Facebook messenger chatbot that helps users make sense of love and other 4 letter words. 

 

MTV’s newest TV show Single AF features 6 celebrities who are sent out on dates around the world by Cupid, an anonymous digital matchmaker. Our New York SuperHeroes cleverly connect TV and digital content by bringing the show’s Cupid to life as a cheeky chatbot offering both personalized love support, and show goodies to help keep viewers engaged between episodes.

Not just another Chatbot

Chatbots have been around awhile, but the experience usually feels stiff and lacks personality. The Cupid Bot builds on the sassy tone of voice established by the show, and is even personalized to allow for a more playful and authentic experience. Whether it’s signing up for a daily “stop doing stupid stuff reminder” or getting pre-made digital love notes to send to your FB crush, the Cupid Bot is a chatbot with a little more heart.

 

SuperHeroes NYC developed the idea and produced all content for MTV’s Instagram and Facebook pages.“It’s always tough reaching the MTV crowd, and even tougher to show up in their newsfeeds, so we needed a fresh way to reach them. With the Cupid Bot, it’s a one-on-one experience with the user. We’re making the experience personal with show reminders, notifications and other ways to ensure we’re as relevant as we can be”, says Rob Zuurbier, our SuperHeroes New York MD.  

 

The Cupid Bot has gone live in 20 markets around the world, and is available in English, Portuguese, Spanish and Dutch.

WANTED: KICK-ASS COPYWRITER

Copywriter wanted

Dear soon-to-be copywriter of SuperHeroes,

 

We are looking for another Elliot.

 

Elliot has a beard, sometimes. Actually most of the time.

He has glasses. If he doesn’t forget them.

He once threw his ping pong bat into the ceiling to have it bounce back on his head. He still has a scar from it.

Elliot filled a weekend bag from a fellow super hero with styrofoam once. That colleague left us soon after.

 

Elliot also writes.

Often quite funny actually.

He puts on his headphones, we ignore him and then swoosh, he pumps out some amazing scripts. And then we laugh. Or cry, occasionally.

 

Elliot also teams up with other people. And dogs.

When he teams up with people, we hear banter, a lot.
When he teams up with dogs. We mainly hear dogs.

Elliot often presents to clients too. They chuckle, all the time.
Some ad people think that’s seniority. We just think that’s how we roll.

 

Well, there you have it.

We are looking for another Elliot.

 

So if your name is Elliot (or any other given name), if you are a native English/American  copywriter with a pretty good or bad sense of SuperHeroes humour, if you want to join us in our mission to save the world from boring advertising and if you can even prove us you kind of match the job description – well, then this paragraph was not long enough to scare you off, obviously.

 

Be brave.

Send your portfolio to airmail@hellosuperheroes.com and make us jealous.

 

 

p.s. this is a gender neutral position

p.s.s.s. home base for this position is our Amsterdam hideout

p.s.s.s.s.s.s.s.s.s.s. don’t wait too long, we’re hiring soon

•    je inspireert de externe PR van zowel GreatQuestion! als SuperHeroes.

 

Skills
•    3-6 jaar ervaring in PR/Digital/Communicatie
•    ervaring in leidinggeven is een pré

•    social media savvy
•    je hebt een goede pen (ehm keyboard)
•    ervaring met lifestyle brands + consumer marketing

•    je bent van oorsprong Nederlands, maar spreekt en schrijft vloeiend Engels (onze voertaal is English en het SuperHeroes team kent ruim 20 nationaliteiten)

 

Bij GreatQuestion!
•    werk je als vaste buur samen met de creatieve teams bij SuperHeroes
•    krijg je een fulltime job (parttime bespreekbaar)
•    werk je met tal van nationaliteiten
