Editorial Assistant
Entry Level +2 · Full time
Posted 2 years ago

I’m hiring a part-time editorial assistant for Important, Not Important.

It’s time to build. And I need your help.

You’ll assist with all elements of INI production, from the newsletter to the podcast.

You’ll run INI’s Twitter account on the daily, supporting reputable science and progressive missions with facts, engaging conversation, and devastatingly appropriate memes. You should immediately know which Schitt’s Creek gif applies to Delta virus updates or Exxon greenwashing bullshit.

You’ll create social media graphics to support podcast marketing, and cut up audio episodes into fun and compelling bite-size chunks with Descript and/or Headliner so they’re easily consumed/shared on Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Snapchat.

You’ll cut up newsletter intros and analysis, and new and old Do Better Better essays into graphics and Twitter threads and LinkedIn posts. 

You’ll learn and employ hip new ways of sharing content but also be cognizant of what’s a waste of time and what’s not. 

Some of this stuff can be scheduled, some of it should be live and organic. You should know the difference and be ruthless about using your time wisely

You’ll create, post, and review analytics to understand what works and what doesn’t, and then refine and do better.

You’ll help us Do Better Better, and build a vastly cleaner, healthier, and more equitable world in the process.
