Are you a detail-oriented self-starter with a passion for creating great customer experiences? If so, the 99U is currently seeking a multi-talented individual to join our team and help us continue to innovate as a world-class, content-driven brand.
We are looking to hire a full-time, multi-talented Assistant Editor & Community Manager to work closely with the 99U team across all content channels: social media, editorial, customer service, and event production.
You must be a detail-oriented person who is ready to take action without being given a map. You must understand the social media space and have thoughts on how to innovate within it. You must have real writing experience, a smart voice, and enthusiasm for cultivating your skills further. You must love the thrill of event production and getting every little detail right.
It’s a broad set of skills, but that’s how we work at 99U. Each one of us is a T-shaped individual, with deep expertise in a certain area—for you this would be community management and customer service—and a broad set of skills across complimentary areas. We’re a content-driven brand, so a passion for editorial is a given for everyone on staff.
As we are a small team, everyone works across all of our offerings—our broader online presence, the 99u.com editorial engine, and live events, including the 99U Conference. We are still in start-up mode, which means that each and every one of us does whatever it takes every day to get the job done.
You will do unglamorous but rewarding tasks like making sure that all of the 99U Conference attendees have a seamless registration experience and that our speakers are well taken care of. You will also get to do fun, creative tasks like curating the Twitter feed, finding new ways to share our content across social media and other channels, helping to launch the next 99U book, and pitching story ideas for our Workbook blog.
As the 99U is all about making ideas happen, we work to be as organized, productive, and creative as we can in all of our daily endeavors. It’s a lot of work, but it’s also exhilarating and extremely rewarding. If you have the creativity, energy, and expertise to join us—and are ready to be challenged and inspired by working with an incredible team—we look forward to hearing from you.
