The Hired Guns are looking for a Community Manager to drive social media and online public relations for our client, an innovative e-commerce company that’s revolutionizing the stock photo/image marketplace. The ideal candidate will have experience in both B2B and B2C social communications.
You’ll need to be creative, capable, and have a get-it-done attitude, but you probably guessed that, right? What should also jump out when people look at your resume or talk with you is a clear ability to build relationships with the big shots in the blogosphere—and also help the small fry build up their influence and stay engaged. You’re a whiz at Facebook, Twitter, FFFFound, Tumblr, Flickr, and all the rest, and you also keep an eye on whatever’s coming down the pike on the social-media scene. Note: your social skills should extend beyond being a laptop or iPhone jockey to include an enthusiasm and knack for getting to know people in, ahem, Real Life. You’ll need to have spent at least a couple of years working in public relations (at an agency) or marcomms (on the brand side, preferably at another tech or e-commerce firm), with a focus on social media. A passion for photography, advertising, art, and design will serve you well.
As the Community Manager, you’ll be a key part of managing this company’s interactions with the outside world: you’ll manage, write, and moderate its social media channels as well as its blog in order to engage and build community and to troubleshoot potential customer service challenges. You’ll also monitor and contribute to outside blogs and other online sites in the same space. Like the rest of the digital world, stock photography sites are in flux, and staying on top of the competition (and the frenemies you’ll find there!) is part of the deal at this job. In addition to managing social media and PR campaigns, you’ll need to track trends in engagement, content, fans and followers, press mentions, and other key metrics. As one of the public faces of this dynamic company, you’ll need to be able to attend trade shows and other events that take place outside the 9-to-5 grid.
This company has shown a lot of growth in recent years and has several intriguing initiatives up its sleeves, and as someone who will be working with all levels of the organization, you’ll be an important part of this group’s future expansion. Dual and tri-linguists who can say “Cheese!” in French, German, Portuguese, or Spanish should definitely apply.
This job is a great place to make some real impact at an innovative, fun place while also continuing to help your social media mojo grow. Great Digital Communicators in Training, send us your deets.
