Social Media Strategist Jobs: Twitter Sydney Australia

I used to do “social media job of the week” but haven’t for years. Anywhos. Want to work for Twitter?

Head of Curation, APAC (Tokyo & Sydney)   

The Twitter Moments’ feature showcases the best of the stories unfolding live on Twitter. It makes it easy for users to experience only-on Twitter conversations and get the most out of the platform, regardless of which accounts they follow or don’t. The Twitter Curation team, which is responsible for Moments, sits within Twitter’s Global Business & Product Partnerships team, which works directly with media companies and high-profile users across sports, politics, entertainment, music, and news and delivers the best content that reaches, engages, and delights the largest daily audience in the world.

We’re looking for a skilled editorial manager to lead the Tokyo and Sydney Moments teams, which are responsible for identifying the best Tweets, photos, and videos around the biggest real-world events and high-profile opportunities for English-speaking and Japanese-speaking markets. The ideal candidate has solid experience managing in a digital newsroom, is passionate about people development and is familiar with using Twitter content to craft stories. They would be willing to be located in either Tokyo or Sydney for work.

They want people with a journalism background – it’s a new style of journalism, the old ways are a good foundation.

Do you have experience with these tools:

Experience with newsgathering tools like Tweetdeck, Curator, Dataminr for News, etc.

What do you think of them?
