FORTUNE is Seeking a Social Media Producer

Rachel Schallom Lobdell, Digital Editor at FORTUNE Magazine Posted

'Fortune is hiring a social media producer to help us find fresh ways to reach readers. You can be based anywhere in the U.S. as long as you can keep East Coast hours. Perks include traveling to Fortune events and daily gifs from me via Slack.'


Fortune’s Communications Team is hiring a creative and nimble social media producer with a brand-marketing background to help us grow the audience for our many offerings: conferences, membership programs, events, lists, print issues and, of course, daily news coverage. In this role, you’ll find fresh ways to reach readers, subscribers and potential members through engaging, shareable social content.

You will:

  • Manage the day-to-day posting of content to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn
  • Collaborate with internal teams across Fortune, including our conferences and editorial teams, to set and refine platform strategies
  • Create social graphics and other visual content using Adobe InDesign templates and collaborate directly with the photo and design teams for original graphics
  • Partner with the video team to home in on original video concepts to complement stories, as well as standalone social videos
  • Participate in brainstorms and contribute ideas with an eye towards how a story or product could best live on social media
  • Work with Fortune’s internal teams, advertising partners, nominees, conference speakers, etc. on key rollout planning for major lists and special projects (e.g. Fortune 500, Most Powerful Women, 40 Under 40)
  • Occasionally attend conferences to gather content on-site for Fortune social channels (when the world returns to normal, of course)

The right candidate:

  • Has a bachelor’s degree in communications, marketing or a related field, or commensurate experience
  • Isn’t afraid to try something new and fail along the way
  • Has an understanding of brand standards and social media marketing best practices
  • Is interested in business news, but also possesses broader news judgment and a handle on the digital media landscape
  • Can balance many priorities that all need social media love
  • Has a keen eye for design and can develop a point of view on what the Fortune brand should look and feel like on social media
  • Keeps a cool and strategic head in a fast-paced environment, and is capable of taking a step back to look at the bigger picture, to most effectively engage with our audience
  • Loves being part of a team
  • Is eager to learn and is equally eager to share their perspective in meetings
  • Can sift through social media analytics and other data to pull out actionable insights
  • Is able to travel by air to attend Fortune events for up to a few days each month
  • May work from anywhere in the U.S., but must be able to keep East Coast business hours (our HQ is in NYC)
  • Has 1-2 years of professional social media experience and some examples of past work or ideas you were able to bring to life
