Vox Media employees thrive on innovation and change while ambitiously seeking to master their subject areas, hone their craft, and improve their communities. We help smart, talented, creative professionals make a meaningful impact in media, technology and the world around them. The Vox Media house of networks includes industry-leading media forces like SB Nation, Eater, The Verge, Vox, Curbed, Recode, and Polygon, and reaches an audience of hundreds of millions, generating over a billion content views each month. 

We created Vox to solve a problem in the news business. We’ve spent too much time in the media burying the important under the new. We want to explain the news to people by giving them the relevant content and context they need, when they need it and where they will find it.

To support these efforts, we’re looking for a part-time social media producer to help run our social accounts. You should be able to adhere to the Vox voice and tone on social media, track social trends, and make complex news accessible and informative for our audience on social media.

What you'll do: 

  • Run Vox’s Facebook and Twitter accounts, and other accounts as needed, leading to increase in followers, engagement, and site referrals
  • Occasionally help with live event coverage (such as debates, awards shows, etc) live on social
  • Monitor trending social and search topics and ensure our accounts are relevant to the conversation
  • Pitch stories to partner platforms such as Apple News

What you'll bring:

  • Proven track record running social for major media outlets or brands
  • Incredible attention to detail and intolerance for errors
  • Creative writer able to execute social posts quickly under pressure
  • Extensive knowledge of mainstream social channels: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram
  • A passion for the news is a must. A background in journalism is a plus.
  • The ability to concisely explain complicated news story on social platforms

The social media producer will be a part of the Vox Engagement team, whose focus is to increase traffic to the site, increase loyalty, tell off-platform stories and provide meaningful opportunities for the Vox audience to engage with Vox staff and other readers. We are an integrated newsroom so you will be working closely with the Vox editorial and product staff.

This position will start at 5 hours per week (usually on Friday mornings) with the opportunity to take on more, as dictated by our staff needs and be paid at an hourly rate. An ability and willingness to work some holidays and weekends is a plus. 

To apply, please submit the following items:

  • A 140-character cover letter (DO NOT SEND a traditional cover letter)
  • Your resume
  • A list of the social accounts for a brand, media org, etc that you currently manage (or examples of posts from when you did manage)
  • 3 examples of how you would share/promote this recent Vox story: https://www.vox.com/2018/9/4/16769988/elections-2018-gerrymandering-redistricting-midterms

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1.

Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
