Social Media Coordinator

San Francisco, CA

This is a 12 month contract role based in San Francisco.

Please, San Francisco Bay Area candidates only. No relocation provided.

Twitter’s Social Media team manages Twitter’s official social presences across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. We use the handle @Twitter on Twitter to tell the story and purpose of our company, then support with our flagship vertical handles that support our people’s passions: @TwitterMusic, @TwitterMovies, @TwitterSports… The team creates content that supports the marketing strategy day in day out. This could be regular ongoing content, such as the MLS and NBA season, or bigger one off activations like the World Cup, Super Bowl, E3, and even the release of games like Red Dead Redemption 2 or Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

Who we are

The Social team is part of Global Consumer Marketing at Twitter, and we help communicate our thoughts and announcements to the world. We also help monitor conversations happening on Twitter, and even join them! We help show the fun side of Twitter, in areas that people are passionate about. We work closely with stakeholders such as Comms, Product, and executive leadership to help generate positive conversation, usage, and education of Twitter.

What you’ll do

You will be responsible for monitoring conversation and managing replies where appropriate on @TwitterSports and @TwitterGaming specifically - you must have a strong knowledge and passion for sports (NBA, WWE, soccer, etc), the teams, the athletes, and the fans. And in addition you understand gaming culture, mainstream console games and esports.

You’re the first to know LeBron got traded, and you know exactly how to join the #NBATwitter conversation with the right meme. You know exactly what’s going down before each WWE PPV and can’t get enough of football… including futbol. In addition to your sports passion, you’re tapped into gaming culture and have collected every pokemon and have unlocked every character in Super Smash Bros Ultimate.

You will be asked on occasion to attend shoots, events, and activations - either to Live Tweet or to help with celebrity content capture or interviewing. So US travel is part of the role. The Community Manager is a publishing role, so whilst the office hours are the standard 9-5, occasionally you will be needed out of these hours e.g. Live Tweeting along with the MLB All-Star Game or publishing a tune in Tweet for a broadcast from a partner’s live show at an evening or weekend start time.

Because of you’ll be Tweeting from corporate accounts you must be completely trustworthy. You’re not the kind of person who leaves their phone in a taxi… ever.
