Calling all foodies! Are you a total foodie whose social feeds are filled with pictures of the places you eat, the foods you make, and the dinners you’d like to eat? Do you also enjoy writing for an audience and get excited about the idea of being the voice for thousands of active communities? If the answer is yes to both, 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 – yes, of course food! 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 by Jimmy Wales and Angela Beesley, and is headquartered in a brightly colored SOMA office in San Francisco, CA.
You will be a part of a fantastic community team focused on creating content geared towards various foodie 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 cooking, eating, or food trends coupled with excellent written and verbal communication skills. You thrive in a collaborative environment and love the idea of working for a startup. Major bonus points for experience in wiki text editing, social networking outreach, SEO, or online marketing. You probably majored in English or Communications and have a working knowledge of social media platforms and an online presence. You have the ability or the desire to talk tech and a working knowledge of HTML.
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.
