The next Social Media Manager at WPXI will be someone with abundant, legitimate (we know the difference) experience in the digital space who is willing to do whatever it takes -- long hours, hard work, etc. -- to produce the best possible user experience on all social platforms.
This person will be a proven leader who reports to our Manager of Digital Content and works in concert with our Executive Producer of Digital Content.
Though there are coaching/supervisory aspects to the job, you will also get your hands dirty by leading the line for our producers when it comes to social media execution. Your undeniable work ethic and overall commitment to excellence will be an example for them to match.
The Social Media Manager will lead the creative development, technical implementation and curation of digital content on all social platforms with a goal of building an audience of loyal, local users. In addition, this person will work collaboratively with other newsroom personnel, Marketing, Programming and Sales to seamlessly syndicate content, growing audience engagement and interaction on television and online. This person will also be an advocate for new social opportunities.
A minimum of 3 years professional experience in journalism and/or 2 years in digital-specific media is required. A degree in journalism or related field is preferred. Management experience is a big plus. Serious candidates should have strong writing skills with knowledge of Associated Press style and a proven track record with content management systems, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, other social platforms, analytics, non-linear video editing and basic HTML.
No phone calls please. WPXI is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
