The Information is seeking a lively writer and smart media strategist to lead our social media across all existing channels—and a number of new ones—and lead conversations with our high-powered subscribers across a range of platforms from Slack to Clubhouse to our own.
As a premium brand respected for quality journalism covering technology and business, The Information has an excellent opportunity to connect with our readers deeply in ways other media brands can’t. This person will be responsible for producing engaging and intelligent content in places where we reach current and future readers and help magnify breaking news. They will work closely with our reporters and editors as well as our business and events team, becoming an essential and integrated part of our whole company.
The ideal candidate knows what makes a story tick and can craft engaging and informative posts across Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, LinkedIn, WeChat and more. They will also be responsible for helping our journalists reach readers on new platforms and will play a leading role in setting our social and community strategies, as well as executing them.
But great and quick writing is only part of what we are looking for. Candidates should be data-driven and have a keen sense of audience and how to track and segment it. They should also be able to make basic graphics and art and work with our art team on more elaborate creative.
As a small team, this position is deeply influential, reporting directly to our executive team.
Candidates should have several years of writing experience as well as experience with the social platforms, the tools to manage them and a deep understanding of social analytics. They should be entrepreneurial and willing to roll up their sleeves and have a zeal for the (non-stop) rhythms of the news cycle as well as live events.
This is an opportunity to join the growing team at The Information, a leader in digital subscription news. Founded in 2013, The Information has attracted tens of thousands of paying subscribers—putting the business on firm footing, and our subscribers include some of the most influential people on the planet.
We are committed to diversity and to building an inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and ages.
