Social Media Manager

theCHIVE is looking for a Social Media Manager who will be responsible for programming all of theCHIVE’s social channels. If that sounds like a big task that's because it is. This individual will need to be up-to-date on the latest internet trends (e.g. are cats in or out?), have familiarity with theCHIVE’s properties and pin down our amazingly impressive voice. You will wear two hats (three if you wear an actual hat to work): you'll need to understand social distribution from both a creative and analytic perspective. You should also have proven track record of successful social marketing strategy and work well across multiple departments within a media organization. Being ahead of the latest hashtag craze doesn’t hurt, either!
