Are you a music lover who's glued to social media? Are you the first to see every Miley Cyrus Instagram? Do you know what Kanye's last tweet was? Can you identify a trending story before it trends?
UPROXX.com is seeking entry-level freelance writers and social media obsessives to monitor Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Vine and more for anything from musicians that deserves to be brought to our audience. In this role, you will be counted on to make decisions on the news-worthiness of social media activity from across the music landscape with an eye toward aggressiveness and speed in turning around posts related to that social media activity.
In addition to social media expertise, the perfect candidate will be able to write knowledgeably around the social content being shared and should have an expertise that spans genres -- you should be as comfortable writing about Drake as you are Tyler The Creator, Vampire Weekend, Iggy Azalea, Diplo, and more.
Ability to work on tight deadlines
Superior knowledge of pop culture, web culture, and entertainment

A passion for digital media and viral news coverage
