Full job description

Note: Applicants who do not include a cover letter won't be evaluated — we want to hear from you!

Tangle is a quickly growing political news outlet that is reimagining the way people consume politics news. With thousands of newsletter subscribers across the U.S. and the world, rave reviews from industry leaders like TIME Magazine and The Athletic, Tangle has quickly disrupted the politics news space and become a favorite source of news amongst its readers. Now, with growth accelerating, we are looking to expand beyond just our newsletter and bring on someone to join our team in a part-time capacity to help launch our Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages, along with other relevant social channels the applicant may deem valuable. This person could be an experienced social media manager looking for supplemental income or an aspiring marketing/social media expert who wants internship-like experience and believes they could thrive in a hands-on role.

This is not a "fetch us some coffee" or do busywork position. You'll be joining a small team and you'll be given work and responsibility right away, and you'll get paid for it. We want someone fun, kind, smart, and ready to clock in a very productive 5-10 hours a week every week. You will be running Tangle's social channels from day 1, and you'll have an opportunity to help build something from the ground up with an experienced journalist who has found a strong, loyal, and quickly growing readership.

This position requires 5-10 hours a week of work, will be paid (stipend) of $200/month, with opportunities to earn extra money based on the engagement of the social media accounts and subscriber growth. It's an opportunity to work with lots of autonomy, flex your creativity, learn on the fly and get your foot in the door at a growing media operation. This is fully remote, part-time position with an opportunity to stay on well past a 1-3 month trial period. We are hoping to fill this position immediately.


  • Help launch Instagram, Twitter and Facebook pages.
  • Schedule daily posts to promote the Tangle newsletter and share content.
  • Drive subscriber growth through relevant social media channels.
  • Flesh out a unique plan to grow social media channels through guerilla marketing.

What you should have:

  • An interest in U.S. politics, news or newsletter growth.
  • An understanding of what makes social media accounts successful across various social media platforms.
  • The ability to take feedback, hit the ground running and enjoy a day of work.
  • A desire to learn from doing, not from sitting on the sidelines.
  • Relevant educational or professional experience, or a demonstrated ability to make users engage your social media content.

The dream candidate...

  • Has experience growing social media accounts, especially Instagram.
  • Has photoshop skills, the ability to produce infographics or short video cuts.
  • Is a political news junkie who can quickly translate long stories into short, poppy social media posts or graphics.
  • Has experience growing email subscriber newsletters and understands how to turn social media followers into newsletter subscribers.

To apply, submit a resume and cover letter along with links to any relevant social media accounts of your own or that you've run. In your cover letter, tell us what makes you excited about this opportunity, why you're applying, what your relevant skills are and what your first impression of Tangle is. Try not to repeat what's on your resume. Don't be shy, be yourself — show us who you are.
