Career, Job Boards, News + Politicstrans.cafe

Hey trans.cafe!

We’ve got a question: do you want to host daily convos about trans issues with an awesome community?

We thought you might. Now here’s another: do you use social media?

We know, who doesn’t?

Well, we’re looking for awesome folks like YOU to join the trans.cafe team as our Social Media Manager.

This individual will be personally committed to advancing public conversation about trans identity, lifestyle, politics and more—both in the U.S. and abroad. By sharing news, quotes, related content and other timely insights to trans.cafe’s rich and diverse community of readers, you will be the leader of a global conversation about issues that need visibility and attention now.

Oh, and BTW: did we mention that you can work from anywhere? (As long as you’ve got a computer, access to Internet, amazing communication skills, and fluency with social media. More deets to come.)

Last question, we promise: do you ever spend time on the Internet reading about trans* issues, or looking at the Instagrams of your fave trans role models?  

If so, you’re already doing much of the work we need! Our Social Media Manager will be responsible for curating content on all of our social platforms (FB, Twitter, Insta and Snapchat), as well as building social communities from the ground up. Think of it as throwing an Internet party. Plus trans activism.
