We are looking to add a creative, witty writer and Tweeter to join our Social Media team on a part-time basis. Candidates must have a deep and detailed knowledge of baseball and the team you’re applying for, and a keen editorial sense. Experience with Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat is preferred. A strong handle of grammar, punctuation, syntax and Twitter voice is required. Attention to detail is a must. If you can’t name the members of your team’s bullpen, don’t apply. If you are an independent thinker with a love of the game, this could be a great job for you.
This is a part-time, seasonal position offering 32 to 40 hours per week. Specifically, you would be required to provide in-game Twitter content during games to supplement and enhance the club’s daily efforts. Candidates are required to be flexible; we work when the games are being played, meaning days, nights and weekends. The plan is for you to work as many games as you possibly can, whether the team is at home or on the road. Shifts last from an hour or so before first pitch until 45-90 minutes after the final out.
Please send along your resume, Twitter handle, blog(s) and any writing samples (short or long-form) you think best reflect your style.
The teams currently hiring are Angels, White Sox, Reds, Rockies, Yankees, Blue Jays and Nationals. Please make sure to specify which team(s) you are applying to.
Below are some sample tweet topics. Compose each as if you’re tweeting from the team account. Assume each topic occurs in real time; could also include link to highlight video, Club.com article, Gameday, Shop page, or nothing at all. Feel free to include any ideas you have for images/GIFs/graphics. Please include this with your cover letter.
