Now Hiring: Dictionary.com Needs a Word Nerd to Work From Home
I’ve got a really awesome job opportunity for you today. (I’m talking really awesome — us word-nerds in HQ are sort of geeking out)
But first, I need you to answer a few questions.
Are you ready? Great.
First things first: Would you consider yourself a fellow word nerd?
If so: Are you about as proficient in crafting 140-character tweets as you are in the English language?
Alright, last one: Do you dream of days spent scrolling Twitter feeds from the comfort of your couch?
If you answered yes to any (or all!) of these questions, then we might have just stumbled across your dream job: right now, Dictionary.com is looking for a part-time, freelance social media editor to work — and tweet — from home.
Become the Tweet Master for Dictionary.com
Dictionary.com wants to make their mark as an “influential, thought provoking brand,” and they need your help to do it.
The company needs a social media editor to connect with emerging culture and trends while creatively showcasing them on Twitter in a way that’s fun and engaging.
In this role, you’ll be tasked with using social media to drive traffic and brand awareness, seeking out and identifying opportunities for Dictionary.com to join the social conversation, maintaining Dictionary.com’s Twitter postings and developing engaging social media content.
You should be able to earn trust internally and externally with other brands and various audiences and should be able to formulate a clear point of view when discussing complicated issues.
Bonus points if you’re a serious “news junky” who loves to be in the know — and right in the middle of the conversation.
You should have at least three years of experience with social media, PR and/or marketing strategies, a strong understanding of Millennial and Gen Z culture norms, a “healthy obsession” with news and culture and an innate curiosity about language and its relation to the human experience.
You should have excellent written and verbal communication skills, experience publishing to Twitter and a demonstrated track record driving social and audience engagement. Having solid relationships “with press and influencers” is a plus.
You should be available to work about 20 hours per week. This is a remote opportunity, but candidates should be located within the U.S. The job pays between $15 and $17 per hour, depending on experience.
