Help us stay on top of, and quickly capitalize on, the latest trends in social (and also help make sure we’re not being weird or lame about it)
Cover team events, training sessions, and home games, where you’ll take pictures, record videos, ask players weird questions for TikTok, things like that
Help us map out a social media content calendar and make sure we mostly follow it

Know more about pop culture than just about anyone you know
Have a knack for photography, design, videography or any other creative disciplines that might come in handy for a role like this
Come up with puns in your spare time
Can rattle off a dozen current TikTok trends and tell your boss which ones are cool and which ones are lame
Immediately thought of 17 great memes when a completely normal and definitely not unexpected moment occurred at this year’s Oscars
