Help Wanted: SoxProspects 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 2024, 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 help work on expanding our social media presence beyond Twitter, while also serving as a backup on Twitter. We expect that the commitment would be 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 couple 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 totally unavailable to post during the entire workday every day. 

We’re looking for someone with experience posting content to Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube. And maybe some base level familiarity with Threads and Blueksy. 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 this person 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 SoxProspects.com 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 a great opportunity for an aspiring digital specialist to gain experience! Members of the SoxProspects staff have gone on to write for ESPN.com, Baseball Prospectus, the Baltimore Sun, MLB.com, and MiLB.com, among other outlets! Others have gone on to become part owners of the site! 

This is a volunteer position. However, we still try to hold ourselves to a high standard. Applications should be thoughtful, organized, and professional. If you are interested in applying, please email info@soxprospects.com. Please provide a resume and/or a basic overview of your skills and experience with respect to the requirements outlined above. We look forward to hearing from you!
