– Activate our community through conversation building and community participation/conversation callouts (e.g., polls, quizzes).
– Respond to members of the community as they engage with us, as appropriate.
– Participate in social media posts from other podcasts and insert our shows into the overall podcasting conversation.
– Facilitate giveaways to drive engagement with both shows.
– Voracious reader and lover of the news, with a specific understanding of business news.
– Social media expertise.
– Experience with both curating and creating multimedia content
– Ability to create content in the Morning Brew style (clever, engaging, informative, serious when needed) but with an understanding of the nuances of social media tone.
– Understanding of social media and general internet zeitgeist.
– Creative, strategic thinker.
– Fast-paced and challenging environment that’s built for a passionate, lifelong learner.
– Full-time position with competitive salary.
