BuzzFeed Videos' Black culture and entertainment team Cocoa Butter is looking for a social media resident with a deep knowledge of black internet culture and entertainment. You will help to grow our accounts, jump in on trending news and adapt our content schedule depending on breaking stories, work with our data team to identify and communicate the results of our projects and adapt original Cocoa Butter content to mobile-first social platforms. You have professional experience in social media and digital programming, and proven success in growing accounts with a creative, and exciting social strategy.
You will use data to inform decisions and will collaborate closely with the curation team, the editorial team, and video producers to ensure that our content is being released in the most optimal way across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Our future Social Media Resident will possess a natural understanding of virality, and understand and summarize how and why certain pieces of content blow up — where did they take off, what makes them special, and why are they worth sharing?
This is a full-time, 3-month temporary assignment based in our New York office with opportunity for extension, available to start immediately.
Our Cocoa Butter team consists of one video producer, and two video residents. You will report into Cocoa Butter’s Content Lead. We’re a fun team dedicated to creating bold and empowering content where people feel seen, heard and celebrated. Come join us!
