If you’re a professional social media marketer, this might be your dream gig. Disney is hiring a Social Media Manager for the Muppets’ online presence.

That’s right: You could get paid to tweet for Miss Piggy or Kermit the Frog.

What’s the Job Like?

You’d create, edit and produce the content for the Muppets’ Facebook, Twitter and home pages, along with proprietary Disney Interactive media.

Plus, since most of the Muppets have their own Twitter accounts, you’d probably get to work directly with characters like Gonzo and Fozzie Bear.

You’d also be responsible for researching and analyzing engagement statistics to ensure the growth and success of the Muppets’ online properties — and the Walt Disney Company as a whole.

What Qualifications Do You Need?

You do need some expertise to qualify for this awesome gig, including at least four years of experience in social media or community management, and two years of management experience in general.

Plus, of course, you need to be a creative, passionate storyteller, and a whiz with social media platforms of all kinds.

Does This Sound Like You?

Head over to the job listing and submit your application — and I’d recommend a creative cover letter for a job like this one!

Keep your fingers crossed, and be sure to let us know if you land the gig! We’ll celebrate like this:
