Much of Facebook’s content is written by users and partners—especially in light of Facebook’s recent deal with publishing partners—but now, Facebook is looking to write some of its own content.
The social network is looking for a copywriter at its headquarters in Menlo Park, California.
According to the listing, Facebook is developing an internal creative team to “build and develop the Facebook brand,” and its new copywriter will help set the company’s “brand voice.” Interested candidates should have at least eight years of experience with digital and film communications efforts, including writing for various mobile and Internet brands.
The job will require candidates to write about complex tech topics in a way even a Luddite can understand, so be prepared to show off your ability to simplify along with a rock star writing portfolio.
Having an understanding of multiple audiences is a bonus, as an average of 936 million people use Facebook every day—and nearly 83 percent are outside of the United States and Canada.
This position is for dreamers, as well: Facebook suggest candidates have a “healthy disrespect for the impossible.”
Facebook is far from the only company that values good writers. As many brands churn out content for print and social media, communications professionals who can turn a phrase are highly valuable.
PR News surveyed more than 1,100 PR and marketing executives, and found that 57 percent think written communications is one of the most important PR skills for advancing within a company; 48 percent said media relations also topped the list.
