Description:

The Conversation U.S. is not your typical newsroom, and this is not your typical audience engagement job. We’re looking for someone who will embrace our mission of amplifying the voices of experts to audiences hungry for facts, bringing our content to viewers as well as readers, and taking our social media presence to the next level.

 

Our ideal candidate lives for the next trending hashtag, whether on Twitter, Insta, or TikTok (where we recently launched an account), but can also focus on building our brand and audience instead of pursuing the next flashy thing. We’re looking for someone driven to vastly expand our social media presence by setting a savvy strategy and then executing on it. We want a videographer who can write and shoot attention-grabbing posts to showcase the knowledge and expertise of our academic authors, explaining their research and issues in the news. We need a journalist who understands the importance of being accurate as well as engaging.

 

This full-time position is currently a work-from-home job. Anticipating a post-pandemic world, we prefer to hire somebody in a city where we have an office – Boston, New York, or San Francisco – but we will consider candidates in other locations. You’ll be joining a growing nonprofit newsroom filled with passionate, intelligent, and fun co-workers.

The Conversation U.S. is deeply committed to inclusion and diversity. We encourage members of traditionally underrepresented groups – including people who are Black, Latinx, Asian American, Native American, LGBTQ+ or veterans of the armed services – to apply to join our team.
