Work with a growing, fast-paced social media company as a Part-time Social Media Content Specialist!

Do you love social media?
Do you enjoy finding great content online and sharing it with others?
Do you pride yourself on your creative writing skills and wit?
Do you consider yourself a bit of an organizational nut?
Do you want to work with a fun, growing social media company?

If you answered yes to all 5 questions then read on! This might be the perfect fit for you.

We are an established social media startup that specializes in working with small businesses from around the world. We are currently hiring a few social media Content Specialists to search for great content, write short, creative intros, and prepare for publishing on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, and more.

Our ideal candidate will look something like this:

1. First of all, you “get it.” You are social media savvy and actively use the major social networks. You understand how businesses and brands use social media to build and engage with their audiences.

2. You thrive on results: You get excited with every like, retweet, share, and comment, and it bugs you when a post doesn’t get as much interaction as it should.

3. You love discovering and sharing interesting, unique, relevant content (this will be the bulk of your work), and you are really great at writing creative intros to said content that don’t put people to sleep. You also have the ability to adapt to different personality styles – important for allowing the client’s unique “vibe” to come through.

4. You are a self-starter and thrive on working independently, and you also enjoy working in a small team environment. This is a work from home position, so you must be disciplined enough to do what needs to be done – every single time.

5. You are super organized and have the ability to manage a pretty hefty task list on a daily basis without losing track of things or getting overwhelmed. This is highly important, since you could potentially be working with dozens of different accounts.

6. You are very detail-oriented and always strive for perfection in your work – you take an almost obsessive pride and ownership in a job well done. You are also a grammar and spelling aficionado, and never make mistakes. (Hugely important. You have to know: Your vs. You’re; There, Their, They’re, etc. Our commitment to our clients is no mistakes — ever.)

7. You have wit, a sense of humor, creativity, and awesomeness. . . and you don’t mind who knows it!

HOW TO APPLY:

To apply, submit your application here. Tell us about yourself and why you’re the best person for the job, including any prior social media experience we should know about. IMPORTANT: We want to see your personality and skill for creative writing shine through in your message to us (after all, creative writing will be a big part of your role with us). Consider this the first step in the interview process.


BEFORE CONTACTING US, REVIEW THESE IMPORTANT NOTES: 

  • This is a work from home position – no commute or gas guzzling required (hooray)!
  • Number of hours will vary based on the number of accounts you choose to take on. We ask for a minimum commitment of 10 accounts (approx. 3.5 hours per week), however you can take as many accounts as you can reasonably and expertly handle (this will also depend on how many we have available).
  • You will be paid a flat rate per account, not an hourly wage, which means you have some control over how much you do or don’t make. In other words, the faster you work, the more you earn per hour. The slower you work, the less you earn per hour. That said, most of our Content Specialists earn an average of $12 per hour.
  • A high-functioning computer with internet capability is a requirement.
  • We require 6-7 hours of self-paced online training and a few conference calls before you are assigned any accounts.
  • This is an independent contractor position. This means we do not withhold taxes, etc. from your pay – this will be your responsibility.
