Membership Community Manager

The membership community manager is primarily responsible for growing the Triathlete community—which, first and foremost, means our members & secondarily means future members! They will serve as the face and primary point of contact for members, overseeing all engagement programs from virtual communities to in-real-life events, creating member-led content on the site, in print, and on social media. This manager will also manage the admin work involved in the member print process, in membership partnerships, and in day-to-day member interactions.

The ideal candidate should have a deep understanding of triathlon and triathlon communities. They should also love social media and come with exciting ideas for both virtual and in-person engagement programs that provide one-of-a-kind benefits to our members. The community manager must be willing to get their hands dirty and do the daily work of building the best membership product in multisport. This is not primarily an editorial role, though the manager will be responsible for creating content to funnel to membership programs and so should possess great communication skills and an understanding of proper editorial standards. They should also thrive in a small team and bring new ideas to the table.
