Social Media Producer:

The National Memo is seeking a social media producer to lead our audience development efforts. The producer will be expected to give voice to our content on major social networks. We expect a level of fluency to identify upcoming social trends and platforms. You should know when to promote something and when to stay silent. We want you to be comfortable sorting between emerging best practice, passing fad, and calcifying conventional wisdom.

The individual will be charged with building, as well as leading, conversations around our journalism with a credible, conversational voice of a digital native. We want to continue growing our audience across social networks by connecting readers with our content and engaging them in a two-way conversation. This of course means working closely with various reporters, editors, and desks across the newsroom.

We require experience using analytics to track audience growth and engagement across social platforms. You should be knowledgeable about trends in online news and curious about things that might work for The National Memo’s content. We’ll look for you to take initiative and oversee long-term projects and breaking news alike. You will bring social voice to our daily stories and infuse top flight internet research skills and community outreach in our enterprise reporting.

REQUIREMENTS:

  • 2+ years of journalism experience. Reporting/blogging/writing experience is required.
  • Love of politics, national news and progressive ideals.
  • Demonstrated experience building audience through social networks (Twitter, Facebook and beyond) preferably through branded (non-personal) accounts.
  • Working knowledge of HTML and, quite simply, how the Internet works.
  • Experience reading and using analytics (Google Analytics & Chartbeat) to help you make decisions.
  • Ability to investigate and verify claims on social media.

ADDITIONAL QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Experience producing and editing graphics, video and/or photos.
