Our culture is based on effectiveness. It's the measure by which we work, make decisions, and grow. To be as effective as possible, we take ownership of our words, work, and ideas and we have accountability to our audience, clients, and colleagues.

Insider is hiring paid social media fellows to distribute stories across various social networks and platforms.

This fellow’s shift will be Monday-Friday, 9am to 5pm ET. This position will be remote. 

The Insider Fellowship Program is for early career journalists who want to spend six months learning from a newsroom full of passionate, dedicated journalists. Fellows are assigned to teams and become experts in digital storytelling. They produce real work that is distributed to our audience of millions, and by the end of six months are prepared for the next phase of their journalism careers. 

Social media fellows manage posting schedules across social channels and help the distribution team reach its goals on platforms including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube, Reddit, Pinterest, Snapchat, TikTok, and LinkedIn. They are responsible for distributing new videos and stories on social channels as they are published, as well as recirculating dozens of evergreen archive pieces per day. They also help to organize and maintain our archives. Additionally, they analyze data and track statistics, write around SEO, and work collaboratively to develop our social strategies. They work with content from all verticals on both websites and the video team.

They should expect to work in a fast-paced environment and be capable of juggling multiple tasks and deadlines at once. Our fellows should have the ability to pivot from one task to the next without missing a beat. They should be self sufficient and capable of making the correct judgement calls based on what they’ve been trained on.

Our social media accounts are the face of our brands, and our social media fellows play an integral role by helping to run our growing network.
