Opportunity with AMC Networks

AMC Networks is hiring a Social Marketing Content Producer, see link below for more info!

Overview:
You love the Internet. You love keeping up with the ever-changing social media
landscape. You know the difference between a fan and a Liker. You inherently
understand the difference between the audiences on Instagram, Snapchat Discover, and

ads.

You would gladly nerd out over the differences between designing for print, motion, and
for the Internet, AKA maximum shareability.

You create memes in your sleep.

You want to tell stories through the art on our pages, and understand how that story
across channels ladders up to a bigger narrative.

You think that testing and engagement data can lead to more compelling creative
executions for our fans.

The Social Content Producer works hand-in-hand on the Social Marketing team with the
Social Marketing Manager who writes all social copy, manages the communities,
develops the social strategy and voice. Also working closely with the Creative Director,
the Social Content Producer will develop a cohesive look and feel for a set of shows
across all social channels. With the support of a Jr. Designer, s/he will create all of the
social assets for the show, including pre-premiere, in-season, and bridge content.
