You will be a leading our fantastic Japanese community team that is focused on working with various Japanese speaking Wikia communities. Your role will center primarily on growth and outreach efforts, as well as sparking user engagement within the Japanese speaking Wikia user base. Also importantly, you’ll be the “go to” person internally for all things related to our Japanese communities.
Our existing Japanese Community Development Associates will report to you, so you’ve got to be a strong and capable leader, as well. You’ll also function as a project manager for all current Japanese community efforts, and will be required to keep the team running smoothly. Additionally, you’ll work quite closely with our Japanese sales team by updating them on all of our community efforts and planning future JA community efforts, too. We’re based in San Francisco, so some travel to SF may be required from time to time.
Unlike most startups, our exciting platform is also coupled with a strong work life balance. You’ll have the opportunity to shape the revenue stream of the company, technology, and products, while having fun. For your expertise, we will offer a competitive base pay and full benefits.
