Job Description – Site Editor and Community Manager
We are looking for a confident writer and community manager to manage our Rice Digital (Japanese culture) and Funstock Retro (retro gaming) editorial websites and social media profiles.

Web traffic currently around 60,000 per month – 150,000 in its peak
Facebook 38,000, Twitter 16,700, Instagram 6,800, YouTube 2,500

Daily news articles (relentlessly finding newsworthy topics daily)
Regular features (you will have pretty much free reign for content ideas here)
Lists (Top 10 etc)
Interviews (you must be comfortable reaching out to game developers etc)
Opinion pieces (your take on current topics – within our brand style)
Reviews (reviewing new products and games)
You will be required to:
Relentlessly pursue more engagement and a bigger community
Post regular social media content (multiple posts per day) on both profiles
Manage community interaction – replying to comments and joining in discussions
Attend key events (with some worldwide travel potentially)
Live reporting on key events (such as Nintendo Direct as an example) – with real time editorial and social media commentary
