Social Media Manager
NEAR is a sharded, developer-friendly, proof-of-stake public blockchain, built by a world-class team that has built some of the world's only sharded databases at scale.
Have you obsessively grown and engaged communities of hundreds of thousands of people in the past? Are you not only in all of the conversations across media channels but also have clear and repeatable systems for implementing, measuring and scaling these efforts? Do you understand the unique nature of developer and crypto audiences?
As the Social Media Manager, you hold far more in your hands than just the keys to Tweet. You are the bridge between the knowledge and delightfully weird culture of our team and the community at large. You are an amplifier for internal messages and a representative of the voice of the community at large because of your direct connection to it. You are in charge of growing and engaging the NEAR community across every social channel and architecting a strategy which is repeatable and scalable to do so.
This requires an almost unique combination of love for the crazy maelstrom of social media and a highly organized hacker mentality where you seek to understand and optimize these systems.
To be successful, you must have deep experience in social media marketing and you must have grown and scaled social communities into the hundreds of thousands and millions in the past. To back this up, you need to have a series of unusually strong mental models and systems for repeating this success. And you need to be familiar with the zeitgeist of the crypto space. A NEAR, you will work closely with the marketing, community, brand, design and product teams to generate the right content and feed back into their strategies.
Social media experts come in all shapes and sizes but you must be able to operate with a high degree of autonomy in a startup-like environment.
This is a remote position.
- Grow the size and engagement of NEAR's community across social channels.
- Get people around the world *excited* about the project, its possibilities and its growing reality.
- Architect a social strategy which proactively supports our strategic objectives and messaging goals so third-party conversations are driven by the key points we're trying to make.
- You have rapidly scaled and managed social communities of >100,000 members without many resources and across multiple channels.
- You have worked in startup-like environments before.
- Deep understanding and empathy for developers and the blockchain space
About NEAR and the NEAR Collective
NEAR's mission is to enable community-driven innovation to benefit people around the world. The NEAR platform provides a decentralized application platform that is secure enough to manage high value assets like money or identity and performant enough to make them useful for everyday people, putting the power of Open Finance and the Open Web in their hands.
The NEAR platform, NEAR Protocol and associated tooling are being built by the NEAR Collective, a collection of the best engineers in the world who work across teams, companies and countries similar to other large scale open source projects. Core contributors include a couple of 2-time ICPC world champions, 2 gold medalists, a Latin American champion and multiple other competitive programming finalists.
Working at NEAR
Roles are posted to this portal on behalf of the companies that make up the NEAR Collective and are typically located anywhere in the world because most of the companies are fully remote. Some hubs are located in Switzerland, Germany, Russia, the US and China. Regardless of where you work, this is a high performance culture that values ownership, execution and professionalism but pairs it with curiosity and experimentation. The vision is big but the right team is behind it.
