Wait What

Posted 2 weeks ago

VIEW JOBS 11/6/2020 12:00:00 AM 2021-02-04T00:00 <p><strong>About WaitWhat</strong></p><p>WaitWhat is a media invention company that creates and owns premium content recognized as high-quality, original and genre-defining. Founded by June Cohen and Deron Triff, the former TED execs who launched TED Talks and led the media organization for a combined 17 years, WaitWhat takes an approach to content that is unique in the industry. In everything the company creates, it aims to elicit the contagious emotions of wonder, curiosity, and mastery — infusing their content with “Wait, what?' moments that spark curiosity and change our understanding of the world. </p><p>WaitWhat’s properties, each of which is profitable, include the Webby Award–winning <em>Masters of Scale</em> (hosted by LinkedIn co-founder and Greylock partner Reid Hoffman), the genre-defining hit <em>Meditative Story </em>(in partnership with Arianna Huffington’s Thrive Global), and the provocative and timely<em> Should This Exist?</em> (hosted by Internet pioneer Caterina Fake). <br></p><p>In 2020, WaitWhat will add 2 new properties, introduce innovative extensions of their core properties, and expand partnerships — all of which build on the organization's leadership as one of the most inventive, high-quality media companies around.</p><p>Most media companies replicate proven models. They compete for the same audience and market share — with almost identical products — and this is ultimately a zero sum game. By contrast, WaitWhat creates <em>new categories</em> with their content, at production values that have become the reference point for quality. All of this positions them to escape the competition, garner attention, win awards, and command premium revenue streams. </p><p>Rather than defining a media property by its format (i.e., “a video series,” “a podcast,” “a live event”), WaitWhat creates media properties that can scale horizontally beyond their first format. For example, a property may start as a podcast that evolves into a conference, a book series, a suite of learning products (corporate and university), a destination website, an app, a marketplace that helps community members find products and each other, a Netflix or Amazon video series, etc. — all with the intention of building an ecosystem around the core body of content. The WaitWhat team designs its media properties with the explicit purpose of shaping them this way into infinite form factors — and they only take on ideas that have the potential for great scale.</p><p>We pride ourselves on building partnerships that make allies out of competitors. The company has forged successful collaborations with Harvard Business School, Harvard Business Publishing, Thrive Global, Creative Artists Agency, Omidyar Network, the Summit Series, Entrepreneur Magazine, Quartz, Mashable, KQED, among others who are working alongside WaitWhat to scale its properties into education, live events, publishing, and video. WaitWhat’s sponsors include blue chip clients, like AT&amp;T, AWS, Accenture, Capital One and Mastercard — who turn to WaitWhat for the unmatched storytelling and exceptional results.<br></p><p>Based in New York City, we are a very joyful, kind-hearted, soulful team. Our vibrant culture is rooted in optimism, possibility thinking, and an uncommon willingness to embrace risk with intention to push the outer bounds of creativity and experimentation. The team — purposefully rich in diversity — treats each other with generosity and respect, tolerant of differences and always supporting ‘yes, and’ style conversations (consistent with best practices of design thinking and improv).</p><p><br></p><p><strong>The Role</strong></p><p>WaitWhat is looking for a full-time social media editor who can communicate with passionate audiences using data-driven insights and your own creativity, as we work together to bring new media launches to scale and build communities around them. </p><p><br>You’ll have a minimum of four years of professional experience in social media, with a proven ability to turn analytics into actions, and to create meaningful social media experiences that enrich communities and expand audiences. You enjoy both setting strategy and executing the day-to-day through paid and organic social. </p><p><br>You’re looking for a job where you can put your talents to work for meaningful media you actually enjoy. You must love startup culture, feel energized by team environments, and have an all-hands-on-deck attitude. You’re looking for a place where you’ll have significant opportunities to feed your audience’s insights back to the company to make an impact. You’re an evangelist for the value of social media to create and feed passion in audiences.</p><p><strong><br>Responsibilities</strong><br>Develop social media strategies for the properties on the WaitWhat roster, working with creators and guests to develop voice and approach<br>Execute those strategies daily, combining insights from data with your own exceptional writing skills<br>Monitor and modify those strategies based on audience insights <br>Create simple visual and animated assets for sharing, and oversee creation of more complex assets<br>Gather and interpret metrics for creators and partners across platforms and properties<br>Plan and execute paid social campaigns, especially around launches <br>Follow industry news and experiment with emerging tools and techniques<br>Manage partner relationships around social campaigns<br>Other responsibilities as assigned</p><p><strong>Requirements</strong></p><p>The ideal candidate will have:<br></p><ul> <li>Minimum 4 years of professional social media experience, with a proven track record in building and expanding social audiences.</li> <li>Professional experience with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.</li> <li>Professional experience with relevant social media monitoring tools.</li> <li>Excellent writing skills, and an ability to write for a range of editorial voices.</li> <li>Excellent spelling and grammar skills (bonus points if you spot the typo in this listing).</li> <li>Basic design skills using Photoshop or Canva, and simple video subtitling tools such as Kapwing or Headliner.</li> <li>Strong organizational skills and ability to multitask on deadline.</li> <li>Confidence in executing tasks independently, working with remote team members, and interacting with peers and senior executives at partner companies.</li> <li>Newsletter experience is a big plus</li> </ul><ul><strong>PLEASE SUBMIT <em>BOTH</em> A THOUGHTFUL COVER LETTER AND RESUME. </strong></ul><p><strong>Benefits</strong></p><p>This is a FT position. While we are working remotely, our company is based in Manhattan. We offer a benefits package that’s generous and competitive. We work long hours, but we also rest: Our whole company closes for 2 weeks in the summer and the week between Christmas and the New Year, so we can recharge. We’re committed to diversity of all kinds — in our media properties, among our investors and on our team: women, minorities and anyone with an unconventional background are strongly encouraged to apply. And most important, we only hire extremely nice people.<br></p> Wait What New York NY
