Description

Startups.com is a platform to help startup companies launch. We've built a base of over 1 million startup companies, however up until now, we haven't focused on connecting those Founders with each other.

That's where you come in ;)

Your goal as the Community Manager is to get our audience connected with each other daily, sparking valuable discussions and encouraging new Founders every day to share their stories, anxieties, and victories with the community.

We're going to be originating these stories in our Community Forums, where we create powerful new topics throughout the week to begin discussions. We use those discussions to draw our community in as well as set the tone for new topics for our Founders to start.

While the community focus is a newer endeavor for us, the assets we have are significant. This is more about focusing our existing energy than building totally from scratch.

You'll have quite a few places to draw from:

- Over 1 million existing users
- Our popular Startup Therapy podcast
- Our 3x weekly Newsletter to over 250,000 active subscribers
- All of our social media outlets on FB, IG, LI and TW
- Over 20,000 experts on our Clarity.fm platform
- 18,000 existing topics from our Answers product
- Over 1,000 existing topics from our article archives

Our goals are simple:

1. Generate new topics weekly that syndicate to our forums, newsletters, social media and other outlets.

2. Engage our community wherever they are responsive, encouraging them to dig in further and ask their own questions.

3. Build an active community that begins developing their own topics and discussions, as well as appoint moderators to help the community build it's own steam.

Required Skills

- Must have experience building communities before, preferably in the startup space.
- Demonstrated "wins" using social media to build and engage an audience.
- Working knowledge of startup company needs and challenges, preferably as a Founder

More than 12 months
