- Recruit, train and manage a staff of contributors that cover team news on the site.
- Regular communication with SB Nation management regarding site goals, traffic, and progress.
- Moderating and maintaining a vibrant, welcoming site community.
Our best site manager candidates will:
- Have a passion for the new Nashville team and news.
- Already enjoy reading, commenting, and participating in other SB Nation team brand communities and have a feel for the culture.
