COMMUNICATIONS & COMMUNITY MANAGER

If you are as enthusiastic about road racing and running in NYC, as you are about social media and high quality communication – this could be the job for you!

NYCRUNS is a young fast-growing company based in Brooklyn, New York and we’re looking for people who can thrive in a start-up environment and are passionate and excited about growing our running events and the community around them.

As the Communications and Community Manager, you’ll be the star liaison between NYCRUNS and the many athletes, running clubs, non-profit partners, and other organizations we interact with. In doing so, you will have the opportunity to craft razor shop copy, display savvy social media management, show off your knack for marketing, and innovate across the board. Additionally, you will be responsible for crafting copy used internally and externally for a variety of needs.

This role is social media-heavy; you should be just as comfortable workshopping copy as you are with planning a social media calendar or working together with influencers and local clubs. Your other responsibilities will be pretty varied; on any given day, you might be hyping up our events, doing some very light sponsorship sales, attending a local running club event, staffing a promotional event, or working as a member of our event day team. You will have an opportunity to make a huge impact. Creativity is a must and you should have big ideas about what an ideal event and brand looks like, with the strategies to make it happen.

You’ll also play an integral role in gathering feedback on event experiences from our community, creating open conversations with them, and working with the NYCRUNS team to make our events better. We’re looking for an outgoing person, who’s passionate about fitness, believes in building better event experiences and inspiring others through our endurance programs.
