Report to VP of Marketing, closely collaborating with CEO and product
You are an experienced multimedia storyteller as comfortable with short, provocative messaging that stands out in social media as you are with longer written profile stories and video and audio pieces
You have a great portfolio that demonstrates range, diversity and creativity that fits our goal of telling the stories of interest-based or “identity” networks over the past few years and well into the next decade
You can deliver a fantastic headline or soundbite and understand why it’s important in an age of short attention spans
You are comfortable experimenting, taking risks and aren’t afraid of new forms of storytelling on mobile video and audio – you’re always looking for innovative ways to tell stories that reach the most people where they are in 2017 and beyond.
