St. Louis Public Radio seeks a sharp and creative professional to be the primary eyes, ears and voice of St. Louis Public Radio online as our Engagement Producer.
The Engagement Producer will be the chief voice behind all of our main social media channels at St. Louis Public Radio, so this is an amazing opportunity for the right person to take the wheel of a news brand. The position will include lots of experimentation and collaboration with our reporters and editors, as this is the spirit of our newsroom in general. This is a place where we push ourselves to try things. Innovation is not a bonus but a drumbeat here. An ideal candidate will be familiar with metrics tools and comfortable making quick, independent decisions based on both quantitative and qualitative factors. We know numbers help us understand our successes and failures, but they aren't the whole story.
Good judgment and journalistic ethics are also key in this position since you are a front-line ambassador to the community.
The Engagement Producer will also be expected to get out in the community in person to connect with both existing STLPR fans and communities unfamiliar with us.
