Job Title: Social Media Manager
Location: Remote, work from home in US or UK only
Estimated Salary: 36,000 - 48,000 USD per year, paid monthly

What’s the Job?

We are looking for an additional Social Media Manager to help support social media and comms for Adopt Me and the Uplift Games studio brands. Adopt Me already has several large channels through which we engage with our community of over 60 Million players. As Social Media Manager, you will work with our existing team to help fill our channels with joyful posts and ensure that following our social media is as fun as playing our games.

We are a diverse team and we strongly encourage applications from people in marginalized groups. This is a remote position open to candidates who are based in the US or UK and can demonstrate eligibility to work in those countries.

What is expected of me?

  • Create new, fun, engaging content for our various social media channels
  • Collaborate on the Adopt Me! social media and marketing strategies, ensuring they are suitable for our young audience
  • Maintain a consistent voice and tone based on our existing social media presence with lots of room to experiment and learn
  • Identify new channels and tools that will support the social media plans and maximise our online presence
  • Where needed, support the rest of your coworkers on the Marketing and Communications team in other areas. We support each other.

What traits should I have?

We divide applicant traits into 2 categories: "Should Have" and "Nice to Have".

"Should Have" traits are things a candidate really should have, but you can make up for it in other areas. If you’re missing one or two, consider applying anyway, especially if you belong to a marginalized group.

"Nice to Have" traits are ‘bonus’ traits that can improve your candidacy, but none of these are necessary to apply.

Social Media Manager - “Should Have” Traits

  • 2+ years experience managing / creating content for brand social media channels
  • An interest in data software (eg. Sprout Social), native analytic reports and a desire to dissect this information into practical information for the rest of the team
  • Experience using OBS or equivalent software and basic video editing knowledge to create your own content.
  • Excellent writing skills. You can change between style and tone depending on the situation.
  • Ability to relate to young gamers and stay relevant in the everchanging online space
  • You value diversity and want to work alongside talented gender-expansive people, women, LGBTQIA+, BIPOC / BAME, and neuro-atypical people.

Social Media Manager - “Nice to Have” Traits

  • Experience with Sprout Social
  • Experience with large-scale live free-to-play / GaaS / service-based games.
  • Experience working on products with young audiences.
  • Experience working with an international distributed / remote team.
  • Experience with the Roblox platform and its various games.

What’s the Compensation?

Where possible we choose to give a transparent estimated salary range for certain roles, to set expectations early and make sure your time isn't wasted.

For this role, we estimate the salary will be between 36,000 and 48,000 USD or equivalent in local currency per year, based on your experience. Salary is competitive and negotiable. Our aim is to be competitive with industry and regional standards.

For employees in the UK and US, we have a competitive benefits package. Find out more on our Why Work Here page.

I’m ready to apply.

A few reminders: you must be over 18 to apply. Though this is a remote role, you must reside in and have permission to work in either the US or UK to apply. Though we aim to respond to all applicants (including unsuccessful ones), you may not receive a reply if you don’t meet these criteria.
