We thought we would usher in the first day of fall today with a big gift to you: a massive listing of over 40 jobs that are currently open for community professionals.
This industry is growing in a serious and measurable way. This time last year, we had only 10 job postings. That number has now quadrupled. It’s not just because CMX is growing. CMX is growing because of you — and because you’re part of growing this industry as a whole. We just curate the findings for you.
In this list, we’ve highlighted the types of roles first and then sorted everything by the position experience level (from intern all the way to VP).
This way, you can find opportunities that float your community boat, whether that means you want to focus on product-centered communities, support communities, community-centric products, or marketing-focused communities.
Most of these roles focus nearly 100% on true community building, and where some intersect with social media roles, we have made a clear note for you.
So here’s what we’ve got on the table.
Want an intro to one of these companies? We can help. Just email us.
Job seekers, if you are looking for a job or just want to stay up-to-date with what’s out there, please fill out this form. Rest assured, we won’t share this publicly. It will only be shared with companies looking to hire community professionals like you.
Companies, are you interested in having one of your listings featured on CMX Hub? Please email us for details.
