Social News Desk is looking to hire a full-time Paid Social Specialist to be part of our SND Promotions team.

This hands-on role is an exciting opportunity to join a mission-driven company that prioritizes innovation and is making a huge impact on the news industry through leading edge technology. Ideal candidates are detail oriented and interested in the world of paid social advertising. Experience building and optimizing social ads is preferred but not required if you’re a quick learner. Facebook Blueprint certification is also a big plus, but not a requirement.

Occasional travel to conferences and client meetings may be required, as appropriate (when considered safe to do so.)

Duties include:

  • Manage end-to-end execution of Facebook and Instagram ad campaigns across multiple clients with a hands-on approach
  • Elements include: implementation, budget management, performance review and optimization
  • Achieve targeted ROI for social campaigns on a monthly basis
  • Effectively communicate directly with clients on ads performance and strategy
  • Support Client Success Managers on campaign questions and issues
  • Proven success with following detailed directions, multi-tasking and managing priorities
  • Learn and master new technologies, as necessary to achieve client goals



Wherever you are! This position is work-from-home (even after the pandemic!). Employees are required to maintain their own in-home office space, which is dedicated, quiet, professional and suitable for webcam discussions with clients. Standard office hours are flexible but generally fall between 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. ET with some off-hours work expected when customer needs warrant.


Social News Desk (SND) was founded in 2010 by two journalists who were on a mission to help local news succeed on Facebook and Twitter. Since then, the company has exploded as the world’s preeminent social media partner for newsrooms. Join us and become part of our start-up company culture.

We’re on the leading edge of organic and paid social media strategy, software and tech-enabled ad services for news.

We offer competitive salary and bonus structure as well as a strong benefits package including medical, dental, vision and 401k, plus, a really fun, remote-work environment (before, during and after the pandemic).

We love to innovate and make a difference for journalists.
