Responsibilities include:

- Oversee Barron's social media strategy across various platforms, developing our voice, style, and potentially becoming the face of the brand

- Manage posting to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social media feeds that highlight our journalism

- Create weekly content that sometimes expands and explains concepts. This may be in collaboration with reporters or on your own, and could appear on Twitter Moments, Instagram Stories, and other places

- Work across various departments, including art, video, data, and events, to coordinate, commission, and schedule posts

- Grow our audiences in a meaningful way across these platforms with the goal of creating loyal subscribers and readers
