Entertainment junkies: We want to pay you to write about your pop culture obsession (Can you imagine?!). You’ll get to write about all things entertainment including the latest books, movies, and the hottest shows. If writing for an audience and being the voice for thousands of active communities sounds like the perfect way to continue your Walking Dead, Glee, and Harry Potter obsession, then we need to talk.
Like our wikis and communities, Wikia is passionate, high-energy and collaborative. Think of Wikia as the encyclopedia of pop culture, as we maintain over 300,000 wikis across an impressive array of subjects, spanning all aspects of entertainment, gaming, and lifestyle. Wikia is the top global video game publisher on the Web today, with over 70 million unique visitors a month. Wikia was founded in 2004 and is headquartered in San Francisco, CA.
You will be a part of a fantastic community development team focused on creating content geared towards various entertainment communities. The role will center on seeking out relevant information and then presenting it in the voice of each community. Presenting this voice won’t be a challenge because you will become a genuine member of those groups and you will have a deep understanding of how to represent your peers.
Our ideal candidate has a passion for all or most things TV, film, anime, comics, and books, coupled with excellent written and verbal communication skills. You thrive in a collaborative environment and love the idea of working for a startup. You have a deep understanding of most social media platforms and a strong online presence. Major bonus points for experience in wiki text editing, social networking outreach, SEO, or online marketing.
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. Our dog-friendly digs are located in San Francisco (between BART and CalTrain) and also come with a stocked pantry and gaming room, where some employees practice yoga at lunch.
