Posted on Wednesday, January 25, 2023

NFX is hiring a Social Content Creator & Strategist to join our team in SF.

But first, take everything that ”Social media manager” used to mean and toss it in the trash. This is not that.

This is a role with new frontiers. It's a role where you get to invent new formats, use new tools (generative AI is changing the game), and reach into the minds of the smartest investors and founders in the world.

This job is for you if:

You have at least 3 years of experience developing social media strategy and writing compelling content.

You are a startup person, plugged into the Venture and tech scenes. You are ready to have a major impact on the world's top Founders.

You've already managed social media for multiple executives

You are playing to win. Because we are too, in support of our companies and founders.

You're passionate about building hyper engaged social followers. Impressions and reach, conversions, & response rates. Consistency of outputs. This is the language you love.

This job is NOT for you if:

You have never worked in tech. You don't have any experience or exposure to startups.

You need your own byline.

You are all ideas and no execution. Show what you've built.

You are afraid to roll up your sleeves and write and post and measure and report.

NFX is on a mission to be the top Pre-Seed and Seed VC firm in the world. We're closing in on #1, and we need you to help us get there.

If you're imagining yourself in this role, great! These are some things you should expect to do:

Work with VP of Content and marketing team to play a critical role in building NFX's social media presence and driving engagement with our target audience.

Create social playbooks for five General partners based on their topics and voice, working with the content team to produce a steady stream of social for each.

Connect with the world's leading tech founders & broader start-up ecosystem.

Run NFX social channels which requires a heavy focus on your writing skills, while respecting both the brand and our target audience.

Follow, read and authentically connect with people on select channels.

Own social KPIs for the content team, reporting metrics on the fly as they hit, along with weekly and monthly learnings.

More about you that make you the one for this role:

You're a strategist. You get sh*t done -- co-workers consider you a player-coach.

You want all of NFX to succeed and are looking to drive growth, not get a byline.

You are of sound judgment, and intuitively know the difference between a high-leverage activity and “spinning your wheels”.

You move with speed, almost never requiring follow-ups from team-mates, management, or the Partners.

You're high EQ, empathetic, and approachable - You'll be a linchpin with a lot of community development and need to be consistent, trustworthy and empathetic.

You push yourself to be better, arrive early, & do more than expected. Something about the way you were raised...

You're thick skinned, not easily daunted by challenges, constructive feedback, nor creative differences.

You bring yourself to work every day. You're authentic and always share your whole truth with teammates and managers. You think it's better to be up front even in tough situations.
