Engagement Managers

The role requires a combination of citizen journalism skills/experience and willingness to learn the Edgeryders way of getting things done online as a distributed team. There is no manual, as the practices are new. However, there is a workflow that we know works for us and which engagement managers would need to pick up very quickly: 
1. Finding interesting people and activities in your local environment from whom others can learn and writing engaging stories about their work (English as well as the local language) on 
2. Organising and documenting Weekly Online Community Calls the Edgeryders way (if you do not know how to do this already don’t worry, we can teach you)
3. Updating the social media calendar with 140 character summaries of stories posted by you and others on
4. Translating content on the social media calendar to your own language and spreading it through different online channels.
5. Summarising key points and insights from the relevant online discussions at the end of each week to make it easy for newcomers to catch up in one post (in English as well as in your own language).
Engagement Managers need to be based in one of these countries (and be fluent in the local language): Armenia, Belarus, Egypt, Georgia, Morocco, the Ukraine.
The project lasts 3 months and we estimate it will take 2hrs/day to do the above, pay is 1200 USD per engagement manager (6 people in total).
