Love watching football and playing on Snapchat all day? You can finally get paid for that!

The National Football League is hiring a full-time Managing Editor for its Snapchat Discover Team, based in Culver City, California.

The position will manage a team of content creators to develop the voice of the NFL’s Snapchat Discover channel.

Who the NFL is Looking For

In addition to your near-obsessive love of NFL teams, players and history, you should have experience managing a social media team, though professional Snapchat experience isn’t explicitly required.

Because Snapchat is so new — even for huge companies like the NFL — this is an exciting opportunity! You’d have the creative freedom to help shape a content strategy while working for an established and well-known brand.

This position is for people who are “excited, not intimidated, by the fundamental ambiguity around trying to define the future of entertainment on social media,” the listing states.

Plus, you’ll be able to choose who you work with, as you’ll be helping build the team as it grows.

NFL Employee Benefits

In addition to your salary, NFL employees enjoy these benefits:

  • Medical, dental and vision insurance
  • Health care FSAs
  • Long-term disability insurance
  • Basic life insurance and voluntary dependent life insurance
  • Accidental death and dismemberment insurance
  • 401(k) and pension plans
  • Paid vacation, personal and holidays
  • Paid parental leave and adoption assistance
  • Gym, education and tuition reimbursements
  • Work/Life Assistance Program
  • Employee discounts (including NFL Shop!)
