Telecommute Contract Allows remote

Ranker.com, the leading platform for ranking just about everything, seeks a talented social media editor who religiously keeps up with anime and is ready to create content and manage our Facebook page Anime Underground.

Here's what you'll need for us to trust you with managing one of our most successful brands:

 

  • Deep interest and knowledge in both current and older anime. Please don't apply if you haven't watched a new anime series in the last 10 years, or even 5. It's cool that you've seen Cowboy Bebop and DBZ but that doesn't quite cut it.
  • Photoshop experience
  • Some social media experience

 

This is a great opportunity to use your creative skills to create and edit content on a wide range of social media verticals for a leading entertainment website, which also happens to be in the top 50 in all internet websites in the United States. Don't take our word for it, check it out at https://www.quantcast.com/ranker.com.

 

Here are some examples of some of the other Social Media communities we've created:

 

Weird History: https://www.facebook.com/rankerweirdhistory

Total Nerd: https://www.facebook.com/rankertotalnerd/

Graveyard Shift: https://www.facebook.com/rankergraveyardshift/

 

 

What's in it for you?

You'll have the chance to express your creativity in front of a very large audience (over half a million followers and counting) in a company that really lets you run with YOUR ideas.

 

What we expect from you:

  • EXCELLENT writing, editing, and communication skills. If you love to write, you’re going to do really well here.
  • Demonstrated social media savvy - we’re looking for people that can creatively reach out and engage an audience. Do you have your own web series or blog? We like that. Do you have a ton of Twitter followers? We like that too! Photoshop and graphic design chops are also important.
  • Viral intuition - Do you ever see something on Reddit and think, “Hmm. That looks like something else I’ve seen before.” Great impulse. We do that hourly. Recognizing patterns intuitively and knowing how to apply them is half the battle and spotting something trending and remembering that we have a piece of content that fits with it is huge.

 

If this sounds exciting, here's what we need from you:

Since this isn’t a traditional job, just looking at your resume may or may not tell us much, and we would hate to ignore a good candidate who is perfect for this role but has been, for example, waiting tables or doing office admin. So feel free to send us anything about yourself to help prove to us that you have the right background - blog or social media posts, nerdy spreadsheets you keep for yourself, whatever. It doesn’t have to be fancy, we just need some sense of what you’re into and how deep you’re into it.

That said, provide a cover letter giving color/examples of how you meet and exceed the qualifications listed above. And yes, we are looking at your cover letter to get an idea of your writing style, so smart, funny letters really stand out.

Links to any social media properties you've helped program, particularly entertainment-focused channels. If you don’t have any social media programming experience, it’s not a dealbreaker for us, so don’t be afraid to apply anyway.

As we are a site with lists about literally everything, and we like editors who know lots about lots of things, it is also super helpful if you list in your cover letter any areas of expertise you have, from the broad to granular.
