Help Wanted: Social Media Specialist

We are looking for an enthusiastic Social Media Specialist to join the SoxProspects Staff immediately! We're seeking a commitment of at least through the end of 2018, but ideally we are looking for someone who will want to stick around with us for the long-term if there’s a mutual fit. We are hoping that this position will manage the SoxProspects Twitter account, help coordinate our strategy for other social media platforms, and input stats on our rankings pages 2 days per week during the season. In total, the commitment is a few hours per week during the baseball season, and less in the off-season. 

As for requirements, we’re looking for someone with flexibility to be able to post using the site’s social media platforms as needed, maybe a few times per day, including during business hours (ET). This does not mean being on call around the clock, but it will not work if the applicant is unavailable to post during the entire work day every day. In terms of the stats entry, that generally needs to happen by 9:00 am on the two days, and it takes about a half hour once you get the hang of it.

The applicant should also have experience with posting content to Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube. We’d also love a go getter that can work on their own without much hand holding or oversight. To be upfront, we all work remotely, there’s little to no face-to-face interaction, and we all have real jobs. So the expectation is that after some onboarding the new hire will take the bull by the horns. 

We also hope that applicants will have a strong attention to detail, a professional attitude, a perfunctory understanding of baseball stats, and a familiarity with and the Red Sox minor league system. Top-to-bottom expertise is not necessary, but the more background the applicant possesses already, the better.

This is an outstanding opportunity for an aspiring digital specialist to gain experience!  Members of the SoxProspects staff have gone on to write for, Baseball Prospectus, the Baltimore Sun,, and, among other outlets! Others have gone on to become part owners of the site!

This is a volunteer position, as are all positions on the staff. However, we try to hold ourselves to a high standard. We will only consider applications that are thoughtful, organized, and professional. If you are interested in applying, please email by 2:00 pm ET on January 26, 2018.  Provide a resume and a basic overview of your skills and experience with respect to the requirements outlined above. We look forward to hearing from you!
