Who We're Looking For

We're on the hunt for an experienced Social Media Manager to help grow the heck out of the Fiveable community across all organic social channels that GenZ calls home. We want to find that person who knows that virality is not just random but earned by consistent effort and bold experimentation. We’ve seen some truly amazing results with TikTok, and we’re dying to find the right person to bring us to the next level (and the fyp).

If you have good judgment when communicating in any public-facing arena and would be able to represent our team authentically, then this is the role for you. You're fearless when it comes to experimenting with different types of media, especially memetics. Most importantly, you find joy in connecting with users on different platforms, and exploring different methods of outreach to integrate those users into our community.

The ideal Social Media Manager will be a key member of Fiveable's Marketing Department and will lead a team of 10+ students (ages 16-18) on our Social Media team to build a more cohesive program that balances our business goals and energizes our students. The right candidate will burst onto the scene to build on our existing strengths, identify big opportunities, and infuse Fiveable's social team culture with new data, capabilities, and toolsets for unlocking our growth potential.


This is a fully remote role, and would be part of Fiveable's growing marketing team, reporting to the Head of Marketing.

Our mission and team

Our mission is to make learning easy and fun. We know that educational inequities have left students overwhelmed and fending for themselves. In order to close the opportunity gap, we need to create space for students to be creative and curious.

Because of COVID, we're in a lightning strike moment for education and we're fired up to change the way things are for high school students.

We're a creative group of former teachers, community builders, game designers, and generally curious people who are driven by social impact. We're focused on building a diverse team and are inclusive of all backgrounds. And we're big on growth mindsets - we're all learning!
