CBS JOB OPENING
Open Position: Digital Media Producer
Department: Internet
Reports to: Director of Digital Media Operations
Date Available: Immediate

CBS SAN FRANCISCO DIGITAL MEDIA PRODUCER:
If you know your story isn’t truly published until you do a powerful Facebook post and Tweet, you might be right for this.

If you agonize equally over your headline and the SEO in your URL, you might be right for this.

If the term Blogroll doesn’t remind you of a SoMa sushi joint, you might be right for this. On second thought, if you know of a local sushi joint named Blogroll that you could review, you might be right for this too.

If you read other stations’ websites, and wish you could just go in and fix every headline, you might be right for this.

If you have USGS alerts set up to SMS you overnight because you don’t want to miss a major earthquake, you might be right for this.

If you worked in TV, have a passion for painting a mental picture with a good radio report, but love the instantaneous nature of Instagram, you might be right for this.

If you can look at 10 new videos on YouTube and tell which 2 will go viral, you might be right for this.
Did we describe you yet?

JOB DESCRIPTION:
The Digital Media Producer will post 5-15 stories and videos each day on CBSSanFrancisco.com, and be responsible for the social media promotion of all of them. The position involves fast-paced storytelling across both radio, TV, and digital. You have to know when you’ve got gold from TV, when a radio report will go viral if you can just get one photo from the scene, and when you can take something from radio and turn it into video to get the higher CPM on the pre-roll. A sense of what will do well and what’s not worth your time is absolutely required, along with the diplomatic skills to explain that decision to someone who wants to know why their video isn’t posted.

The ideal candidate has a background in news, meticulous yet speedy copy editing skills, demonstrated social media experience on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram; strong writing for terse wire copy and longer commentaries, satire and columns; and proven excellence in promotable SEO-friendly headlines.
