Assistant Editor & Community Manager, 99U

We are looking to hire a recent college graduate for a full-time, multi-talented Assistant Editor & Community Manager role that will work closely with the 99U team across all content channels: social media, editorial, customer service, and event production.

You must be a detail-oriented person who is ready to take action without being given a map. You must understand the social media space and have thoughts on how to innovate within it. You must be able to nerd out about how content spreads online. You must have real writing experience, a smart voice, and enthusiasm for cultivating your skills further. (Having your own publication or editorial side projects is a plus!) You must love the thrill of event production and getting every little detail right to make attendees smile. And most importantly, you must know that great publications start and end with doing right by its readers and community.

As we are a small team, everyone works across all of our offerings—our broader online presence, the 99u.com editorial engine, 99U Quarterly, and our live events, including the 99U Conference. You will do unglamorous but rewarding tasks like making sure that all of the 99U Conference attendees have a seamless registration experience. You will also get to do fun, creative tasks like curating the Twitter feed, finding new ways to share our content across social media and other channels, helping to ensure the success of our brand-new 99U Local event series, and pitching story ideas for our Workbook blog.

As the 99U is all about making ideas happen, we work to be as organized, productive, and creative as we can in all of our daily endeavors. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also exhilarating and extremely rewarding. If you have the creativity, energy, and expertise to join us—and are ready to be challenged and inspired by working with an incredible team—we look forward to hearing from you. The full job posting is below:

Assistant Editor & Community Manager

99U, the real-world university for making ideas happen, is seeking a recent graduate to be our next Assistant Editor & Community Manager.

99U is a yearly sold-out conference, Webby-award winning website, quarterly magazine, and book series dedicated to providing the missing curriculum for making ideas happen, empowering creative careers everywhere.

The Assistant Editor & Community Manager will work with the 99U Staff to further grow and serve 99U’s community of entrepreneurs, creatives, and others by providing outstanding customer service and writing content that provides actionable insights to our readers. The job will consist of two equally important halves:

  1. Interacting with and answering queries from our readers and conference attendees
  2. Executing our social media strategy while pitching content to be published on 99U.com

You will be doing a share of unglamorous but incredibly rewarding tasks mixed with plenty of chances to flex your creative and writing muscles on our website, magazine, and other media. The 99U is a small team, but we punch above our weight class. Each member must be an independent worker, someone who can take end goals and then execute with a extremely high level with autonomy. You must have a passion for online editorial products (hopefully you have one of your own), a love of building community, a strong writing voice, a bias towards action, and an ability to work on deadline. We have fun and take a great deal of pride in our work—and you should too.

Responsibilities:

  • Be our “front line of communication” for all inbound inquiries related to 99u.com.
  • Assist in the execution of our sold-out yearly conference, especially regarding registration and application processes.
  • Flawlessly execute our social media strategy on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other platforms.
  • Regularly pitch and publish new content for 99u.com according to our editorial calendar.
  • Find new ways to package and share 99u.com content to reach new audiences.

Requirements:

  • A basic knowledge of WordPress
  • Be located in (or willing to relocate to) New York City
  • Strong writing voice
  • A recent college graduate (Winter 2014 semester or later)
  • A basic knowledge of Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin and a fascination with what makes great content spread

Not required (but helpful)

  • HTML/CSS
  • Mailchimp experience
  • Your own blog or website

To apply send the following to behanceedits@gmail.com:

  • Your resume
  • 3 to 5 writing samples that best match the mission and tone of 99U (Links are great!)
  • Any suggestions or ideas for what you’d like to see on 99U
