📰 Head of News & Media Publishers
Remote (US-based) or San Francisco, CA /
Clubhouse is a new type of social product based on voice. It allows people everywhere to talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people around the world.
Our early users love the product and we have been featured in publications like The New York Times, Forbes, The Telegraph, TechCrunch, CNBC, and WIRED. Today, we are a small and productive team with a strong background in consumer products. We are well funded, with recent backing from top-tier VCs and many of the best angel investors from Silicon Valley and beyond.
As we open up Clubhouse to the whole world, we are seeking to add a few extraordinary people to our growing team. If you think you would be a good fit, please let us know! 🙏
As the Head of News and Media Publishers, you will be the subject matter expert leading our news and media publisher vertical. You are someone that is passionate about traditional and digital media, Clubhouse and the intersection of the two. The position will lead Clubhouse’s media efforts focused on building and executing strategies and programs to drive high impact and authentic use of Clubhouse among journalists, editors, reporters, and creators within the media ecosystem as a whole.
This role will report into our Head of Media Partnerships. During the pandemic, we are working remotely. This role will be open to both local and US-based, remote candidates. We will have an office in San Francisco when we are able to safely reopen our office for those who prefer to work in person.
Who you are
You are experienced. You have deep expertise in traditional and digital media.
You bias towards action. You like to build and ship - favoring practical choices, speed and a respect for sequencing. You focus on the things that matter and push back on things that don’t. You make deadlines for yourself and you move fast.
You’re scrappy and entrepreneurial. You thrive in fast-paced environments and are comfortable with not knowing the answer to something. You are willing to roll up your sleeves no matter what the challenge is.
You take pride in what you do. You care deeply about your work. Every day is just as exciting as the day before, and you are ready to move swiftly with the best intention always. If something seems off, you come up with a good solution and fix it without being asked to do so. You’re proactive with suggestions and people know they can count on you to get things done.
You enjoy your work. You love what you do, think about it in your free time, and often find yourself building at strange hours—not because you feel you have to, but because you’re so excited to create something big for the world. Your favorite thing to do is to take on a huge challenge and pull it off.
You care about doing the right thing. You value diversity and go out of your way to ensure others feel welcome. You enjoy hanging out with your teammates, have a low-ego, and make the workplace more fun for everyone.
What you will do
As the Head of News and Media Publishers, you will handle day-to-day operations and partnership management, field and prioritize incoming requests, troubleshoot partner issues, ideate programmatic moments and improve partner performance. This work will require cross-functional engagement with colleagues across product, marketing, communications, community, verticals and regions to communicate our partners needs for the best experience on Clubhouse.
You’ll be an owner. We believe in hiring people and giving them as much responsibility as they can handle. As part of the Clubhouse team, you lead strategy and outreach efforts with creators and industry influencers to develop innovative and high impact partnerships. You will initiate, negotiate, and project manage high priority partnerships while trend forecasting new rising partners. You will track, analyze, and communicate quantitative metrics and business trends as they relate to partners.
You'll grow and improve rapidly. At Clubhouse you’ll be working with an incredible team, who love to learn from and teach each other. You’ll find yourself stretching to new areas, immersed in feedback, challenged by your teammates, and growing your skills on a daily basis.
You’ll shape the product strategy. You will serve as an internal advocate within Clubhouse for partners, including working with the product team and other internal stakeholders. Your ideas will always be heard.
You’ll create something meaningful. Social products allow people to connect in ways that were never before possible. When the telephone was invented, it suddenly allowed people to speak with others across the world. Thanks to FaceTime, grandparents everywhere can now watch their grandchildren grow up. At Clubhouse, you’ll be figuring out something entirely new for the world—a positive product that brings people’s voices together for deep and meaningful conversations, creates new relationships, builds empathy across cultures, entertains people, and helps people develop ideas that change the course of their lives.
As an early team member at Clubhouse you will be a critical voice and have significant influence over the direction of the company. We will compensate you well, invest deeply in your development, and ensure this is the single best work experience of your life. If you think you might be a good fit for our team, we’d love to hear from you!
