Job Overview

We’re looking for a Community Coordinator to join our team and help cultivate our rapidly expanding brand ambassador programs, the BibRave Pros and a number of other White Label (custom) Ambassador Programs. We’re a team of passionate, active professionals, looking for someone who is highly driven, very organized, detail-oriented, and excited to work for a growing endurance industry start-up!

The Community Coordinator role is an entry-level+ position, meaning we’re looking for someone with solid professional skills and sensibilities. The “+” part also signifies that the role can quickly grow along with our company.  Competitive applicants will have some experience in social media/digital marketing, and proven success managing multiple projects and deadlines.

Must be a proven do-er- someone with high energy, strong organizational skills, and air-tight attention to detail.. We aren’t looking for people to JUST follow orders, but also to anticipate future needs and opportunities without being specifically instructed.  Knowledge of or passion for the running/racing/multisport landscape is a plus!

Last, but not least, competitive applicants will be smart. “Smart” can mean a lot of things, but mainly we mean that you’ll exercise sound judgement, approach and solve problems thoughtfully and analytically, be able to “read a room” and adjust written and spoken communications accordingly, and generally demonstrate acutely tuned sensibilities. This one’s harder to measure and explain, but it’s extremely important.
