Job Requirements Our media company startup is hiring a part time Community Manager to find and recruit the next generation of BuzzFeed and Upworthy style curators. Our perfect candidate has the following:

1) A large social network they can activate to help in the process
2) Ties to various professional and college groups they can activate
3) Great communication skills and an excellent work ethic

Here's what we are doing:

We are recruiting 1,000 cool, weird, interesting, thoughtful people to post on our app, Tally, once a day. Each of these people would share a really interesting article or photo or idea, and together we'd try to build a new and improved newsfeed.

Your role would include recruiting 50 - 100 of these individuals, to vet them, and get them started.

The future of journalism looks more like BuzzFeed and Upworthy then it does your local newspaper. This position finds the people who understand that and want a platform to help get there. You are the person who communicates this and finds these people.

To apply, please send an email and resume. The email should explain how you would recruit these folks, what you have done similar, and precisely why you would be a good candidate.

If you are really just interested in being one of the curators (unpaid) you can let us know too.
About Our Company We're an NYC-based startup with an investment from a large media company. Over the last several months, we created Tally (an iPhone app) because we wanted a better newsfeed. Previously, our team built three apps that hit #1 on the App Store. Visit for more info.
