Yelp - Community Manager - Twin Cities

Do you love Twin Cities? Are you the go-to person when it comes to planning a night out, always ready with a recommendation for the city’s most seasoned finds and hidden hotspots? As the Twin Cities Community Manager, you’ll be a full-time Yelp employee (working out of your home or anywhere with WiFi, as well as our headquarters in SF on occasion) 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 ringleading!

About you:

  • Has a fire in the belly. Walks through walls. Takes no prisoners. In a word: driven. Even when no one is watching. Especially then.
  • Social connector. You are the hub of your social world. You know everyone. Everyone knows you. The fun one. Diplomatic, too.
  • You reside in the Twin Cities and consider yourself a local expert (see below).
  • 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!
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. In the scene. Be the Mayor. Always on.
  • Writing. Write locally compelling newsletters weekly and inspiring reviews daily, as well as persuasive pitches to venue owners and marketing partners.
  • Communication. Be accountable with stellar communication to your peers and those who support you at Yelp HQ.
Other fun requirements:
  • 4-year college/university degree.
  • Currently living and rocking out in the Twin Cities area.
  • Experience with social networking, guerilla marketing tactics, and event planning.
Ready to apply? Submit the following (all required):
  • Cover letter/note showcasing your writing skills and general personality and style.
  • Resume showcasing your relevant experience.
  • A link to your (full and interesting) Yelp profile – this is your writing sample, so make it snappy!
