Roles and Responsibilities
  • Live video is growing on Twitter every day, and we're hiring a San Francisco-based editor to help keep up. Your job will be to find, seed and share the best broadcasts and breaking news events as they happen in real time on Periscope and Twitter.
  • We're looking for an energetic, optimistic and experienced multi-lingual media junkie. You can think on your feet and you know what makes a great live stream.
  • You're clued in and have broad knowledge of global current events, as well as cultural, social and political trends worth watching. You're comfortable working with media partners and have endless ideas for pushing live streaming forward as a form.
  • You should be fluent in English and one other language sufficiently to assess the value of live broadcasts in real time, write titles and descriptions, and interact with community members. We're especially interested in Spanish and Portuguese.
  • You should have a minimum of two years experience in online publishing, with experience curating video and breaking news from social media.
  • You're also insatiably curious and ahead of the curve, the kind of person who's first to share cool stuff in your social circle, whether it's new music, books and films or the GIFs and news headlines everyone winds up talking about later that day. You have a knack for mining gems from social networks before they go viral.
  • You're a self-starter ready to roll up your sleeves and get to work on day one, and also ready to grow into a leader able to run a team when the time comes. If this sounds like you, drop us a line.
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION:
  • Manager has been seeing a lot of people with business backgrounds. Really looking for experience in working newsroom, preferably work in digging into social media to follow up on breaking news alerts and verify on breaking news.
  • Role will entail chasing down rumors of wars across the world, for example, and identify things happening before they trend.
  • Role will look at news alerts and map those alerts and see if Twitter has video. People have to be really up on current events... I.E. Iran Deal. Bilingual Spanish a plus but not necessary.
