After an unprecedented run, Black Heart Gold Pants’ remarkable braintrust will be hanging up their gold pants August 1. We are thankful for their leadership and all their hard work.
That means that BHGP is looking for a new site manager and also some new writers to beef up the staff and make it fully weaponized for football season.
If you love Iowa sports, writing, and the idea of running your own site, we'd love for you to be the new Black Heart Gold Pants manager. Here's what that person does:
- Writes multiple articles about Iowa sports each week
- Manages a staff of other writers, editing and scheduling their work
- Runs (or delegates) the site’s Facebook, Twitter, and other evolving social platform accounts
- Makes sure the site publishes enough to grow
- Trains other writers in SB Nation best practices (headlines, formatting, etc)
- Maintains a growing and vibrant community and ensures it is welcoming for everyone
This is a part-time contracted position and comes with a monthly stipend. Previous writing experience isn't required (but it does help), but a familiarity with social media tools, an understanding for what is news and how to find it, and a self-starter attitude are required.
If you’re interested in applying, you can do so here.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
