BOSTON, Mass. — The award-winning international news organization GlobalPost is hiring a Social Media Editor at its worldwide headquarters in Boston.

GlobalPost is looking for a social media wunderkind to manage various social media accounts and, in particular, own its popular Twitter feed. The right candidate will have the knowledge and confidence to take part in the world news conversation happening every day on Twitter and elsewhere.

As a key member of the editorial team, you will devise new and creative social media strategies to drive traffic, encourage engagement, and attract new followers. If figuring out how to make something go viral sounds like fun to you, you should apply.

The perfect candidate will have a solid background in writing and editing, understand the voice of the web and know what makes a story shareable, from the headline on down. The position also allows ample opportunity to write stories, or create other types of shareable content related to global news.

You are creative, can work independently and are not afraid to try new things. You thrive in an always-evolving, collaborative environment. You have a sense of humor. You work well with others. You energetically embrace internet culture and are eager to join a hard-charging editorial team that’s helping redefine international news in the digital age.

Mostly, you care about the world. This is a full-time job that offers a competitive salary and benefits, with lots of opportunity to evolve and grow within the organization.

Please email a letter of interest, resume, and any relevant examples of your work to GlobalPost Managing Editor Lizzy Tomei (ltomei@globalpost.com) and News Desk Editor Peter Gelling (pgelling@globalpost.com) with the subject line "GlobalPost Social Media Editor Application."
