Head of Social Media and News

Product Hunt via Jobspresso
Marketing

Pacific Time Zone

Sep 4th 2018


We love products, care about people, and thirst to build a community that celebrates making. Our distributed, tight-knit team is headquartered in SF.

In 2016, Product Hunt was acquired by AngelList and continues to operate as an independent team, helping surface new products from makers across the world.

Nowadays talent is distributed worldwide and everyone can learn online all skills required to build amazing products, what most people outside of strong startup hubs lack though is exposure to early adopters and supporters. We want to help makers worldwide to reach an audience, connect with others, and become successful.

Product Hunt is based in San Francisco, operating as a distributed team across 9 timezones. This full-time role is available for remote candidates from anywhere in the world, but you'll need to be available from 5:30am-noon PT Monday-Friday (the rest of your hours can be worked flexibly at your convenience).

Your primary daily responsibility will include managing Product Hunt's Twitter, Facebook, and other social channels, and covering breaking tech news for our news app, Sip (http://sip.fyi).

RESPONSIBILITIES INCLUDE

– Writing superpowers. Every day, dozens of makers launch on Product Hunt. As the main owner of our social media profiles (Twitter and Facebook) and our editorial voice inside Sip, you'll need to love crafting interesting and intriguing tweets, posts, and editorial takes to help makers put their best foot forward and drive traffic to their product.

– Love for all things tech. New product launches, features, and startups are your bread and butter. If you find yourself spending hours on Twitter, following individuals and teams build incredible products, this is your jam. No joke is too niche for you.

– Attention to detail. An extreme attentiveness to detail and organization is important. You should enjoy editing blog posts for friends and fixing even the most minor grammatical errors.

– Data-driven attitude. We're constantly optimizing our content and running experiments based on past successes (and failures!). You love to design and execute growth initiatives independently.

If this list (without exceptions) gets you pumped, we want to hear from you.
