Gold drove the economy in 1870s South Dakota. In today’s world it’s scorching hot tweets, the millennial’s currency.

If you have experience dealing in such a trade, perhaps a job with the Suns is what suits you. The team is looking for a new social media manager. Apply with aplomb.

What will you have to do? This stuff:

You MUST be able to perform the following tasks:

  • Lead the Suns social media platforms, including but not limited to Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat, while making organizational decisions that support business goals and the growth of the channels themselves
  • Utilize the platforms to share team & brand content, build fan affinity, and drive business objectives
  • Conceptualize and create a wide range of original content for distribution on team’s social platforms, including photos, video, animation, graphics and more.
  • Cover Suns team events, including practices, games, community outreach initiatives and sponsor activations.
  • Work with Content, Communications & Digital teams to outline and activate a social media content calendar.

Play a key role in advancing the Suns’ content efforts, including developing content, sharing best practices & industry trends, and providing expertise around social media practices.

If the social media platforms not listed include Myspace and LiveJournal, get to the back of the line. That’s where I thrive. It probably doesn’t, though. World moves too damn fast.

What should you be good at? This stuff:

Knowledge, Skills and/or Abilities

  • In addition to social media experience, writing and video editing experience for teams, websites or media outlets is preferred
  • Digital photography experience preferred: shooting and editing via Photoshop
  • Knowledge of the NBA, its culture and the Suns preferred
  • Creative, collaborative, and energetic approach
  • Additional duties as assigned by supervisor

Additional duties as assigned by supervisor. Man, that’s where they always get you. Good luck, job sreekar seeker.
