Email and Social Media Marketing Coordinator/Manager

The Wrap News, Inc. seeks a full time employee for an in-house, entry-
to mid-level email and social media marketing position for its division (IOTG). Job functions include coordinating
IOTG's email marketing campaigns, listening to and participating in
online conversations about the entertainment business across various
websites and social media, client service interactions via phone and
email, monitoring and maintaining in-house marketing campaign and web
traffic statistics, and so forth.

We're looking for someone who's wicked smart and a fast learner -- web
programming skills are not at all important but familiarity with and
comfort learning web tools including Twitter, blog and CMS clients is
required. Previous experience with email and social media marketing
is preferred -- salary and title ("Coordinator" or "Manager") will be
commensurate with experience. Familiarity with film and TV
development and production, especially the key people and companies
involved in the movie business, is also preferred.

This position is subscriber- and potential subscriber-facing, so
outstanding interpersonal and client relationship skills are required.
The ideal candidate has exemplary oral and written communication
abilities, including perfect spelling and grammar. In addition, he or
she must be a well-informed fan of (if not have an outright passion
for) the entertainment business in general and movies and television
in particular, since the job requires an ear for items that will be of
interest to IOTG's potential subscriber base and the ability to weigh
in with an intelligent take from time to time.

We'd prefer someone interested in a career in marketing or journalism
(as opposed to film and TV proper), but that's not a dealbreaker.
Please send resumes to along with a
cover letter/email that exhibits your ability to connect with and
engage people through your writing. Use the subject line "[your name]
- [your single favorite movie or TV show]."
