Team Brands Community Manager NY, DC
Company: Vox Media
Vox Media employees thrive on innovation and change while ambitiously seeking to master their subject areas, hone their craft, and improve their communities. We help smart, talented, creative professionals make a meaningful impact in media, technology and the world around them. The Vox Media house of brands includes industry-leading media forces like SB Nation, Eater, The Verge, Vox, Curbed, Recode, Racked and Polygon, and reaches an audience of hundreds of millions, generating over a billion content views each month.
SB Nation is the fastest growing online sports media brand, consisting of SBNation.com, more than 300 individual fan-centric sports communities, and MMAFighting.com
The Community Manager will function primarily as a central resource for SB Nation Team Brands’ many community leaders and moderation teams. This role will provide guidance for those leaders to welcome new readers into each community, best practices for developing community-specific content, and support and guidance for our hundreds of moderators in their efforts to create and maintain welcoming, diverse, and inclusive communities.
While guidance on moderation is a big part of this role, this position is not ‘lead moderator’. We are looking for an individual who is truly obsessed with growing fun, inclusive, diverse communities, who recognizes the power of our readers’ personal fandom, and can help us continue to connect fans to their communities in new and interesting ways.

- Works with individual communities to improve diversity and inclusion;
- Explores “community” wherever Team Brands may travel -- on platform, on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, etc.
