As the Tokyo Community Manager, you’ll be a full-time Yelp employee (working out of your home or anywhere with WiFi) at the helm of a vibrant, buzzing community of locals who drink, shop and play their way through the city via peer recommendations on Yelp. Community Managers are driven, self-motivated, charismatic, and organized as they’re tasked with wrangling a slew of to-dos both on and offline, from writing and moderating to party planning and ring leading!

Have more than a few years of post-graduate professional experience (existing Yelp community managers have 5 to 15 years). Lives to write; writes to live. You know who you are... pencils down! You speak and write Japanese and English fluently.

    About the job: Event planning. Conceptualize, negotiate, plan and execute cool, fun and buzz-worthy (big wow factor!) events/parties. Marketing outreach. Connect with the right local organizations, barter weekly newsletter sponsorships for promotion of Yelp. Socializing and adventuring. Meet up with Yelpers. Attend civic events. See and be seen.
