Digital Coordinator

Rotating Mass Media is currently accepting applications for the position of Digital Coordinator for Dirt Rag and Bicycle Times.
The Digital Coordinator will work with both the advertising and editorial departments to keep our social media cranking along on a daily basis. The ideal candidate will be comfortable working solo and as part of a team. RMM is a small team, and the Digital Coordinator will need to manage time well and work with little supervision.

All RMM employees are expected to contribute editorially. Product reviews, feature stories, photography, video, we can give you a place to get noticed for your media skills.

And while it should go without saying,  we aren’t going to hire someone without an obvious passion for bikes. Industry experience isn’t required, but we are looking for someone with an extensive riding background. It gets really bike-y up in here, you’ll need to fit in.
The application deadline is September 05, 2017
