Do you bore easily? Not here. No two days are ever the same at Townsquare Media. As the Digital Managing Editor, one minute you'll be editing an article about the ten best burgers in town, the next you'll be implementing a new Facebook strategy, only to close out the day by teaching a DJ how to craft an SEO-friendly headline that drive's traffic to the brand's website.
This is an agile position that requires solid troubleshooting, good professional judgment, level-10 communication, and technical prowess. Patience is essential, as is a great sense of humor - this is radio after all, not a library! (Not that there's anything wrong with libraries. We love libraries. Seriously. They're the best.) This is not a typical webmaster position.Responsibilities
