This is a Full-time in-office position working closely and collaboratively with a Team*
Are you a passionate content creator with exceptional writing and editing expertise? Are you digital savvy with social media skills to match? If so, then keep reading!
We are a diversified media company looking for someone to oversee and maintain the digital platforms for our Twin Falls area. With a maniacal focus on consumer experience, this individual will work closely with our on-air talent to develop content for their shows, grow their brands online, and create the best possible experience for their audience across all platforms.
Do you bore easily? Not here. No two days are ever the same at Townsquare Media. As the Digital Managing Editor, one minute you'll be editing an article about the ten best burgers in town, the next you'll be implementing a new Facebook strategy, only to close out the day by teaching a DJ how to edit the video they shot while riding a roller coaster with the mayor.
This is an agile position that requires solid troubleshooting, good professional judgment, level-10 communication, and technical prowess. Patience is essential, as is a great sense of humor – this is radio after all, not a library! (Not that there's anything wrong with libraries. We love libraries. Seriously. They're the best.) This is not a typical "webmaster" position.
This position reports to the local Operations Manager.
Partner with teams of on-air and digital talent to create text, photo, video and interactive content for the local community across the site, mobile platforms and social media. Work to make sure those great ideas are harnessed online.
Provide consistent training, coaching and education for our on-air and digital talent on the latest internet trends (ex: Facebook posting strategy or strategies for search engine optimization) and educate staff on company policies (ex: copyright law and digital requirements).
Coordinate with local sales and content teams to make sure that all station and market initiatives have an engaging digital component.
Study analytics to make data-driven content choices and optimize local digital strategy.
Be at the forefront of content creation every single day.
Five years of online editorial experience with exceptional writing, editing, SEO skills
Strong grasp of how to use popular social media networks (like Facebook Twitter, Instagram and YouTube) to promote content
Must be a consummate multi-tasker (with excellent communication skills) who is understanding of the ever-changing culture of the internet
Ability to prioritize and focus under fast-paced pressure, while managing multiple tasks and projects
Strong troubleshooting and problem solving skills, editorially and technologically
Proficiency in the use of digital technology, including online publishing platforms
An understanding of the ever-changing culture of the internet
Must have great communication skills, obsessive attention to detail and a sense of humor (Again, this is the radio business, we like to have fun!)
3 weeks of PTO (+ 9 paid holidays)
Medical, Dental, and Vision Insurance
401(k) Retirement Plan
Casual, high-energy work environment
Opportunity for upward mobility
Company provided laptop
Competitive salary + bonus program
Time off for volunteering
And much more…
