Business Development Associate (Community)
Drift is a leading derivatives exchange on Solana. Our mission is to bring state-of-the-art trader-centric experience from centralized exchanges on-chain. Within 39 days of trading, Drift transacted our first $1 billion of volume on the platform.
The Drift team is seeking a Head of Community/ Community Manager to support our rapid growth and will often be the first line of contact to engage with the Drift community.
Community Manager Roles and Responsibilities
Social channels management (Twitter, Discord):
Twitter: We are looking for someone who will wake up and go to bed thinking about how to grow engagement on Twitter. They should be well-versed in the latest news / trends regarding crypto and DeFi. This individual should have practice scaling a social media account from scratch. They will be responsible for tweeting, scheduling and facilitating Twitter Spaces, and forging partnerships with thought leaders in the space to drive the Drift brand
Discord: We have a community 11K strong and are looking for someone to grow community loyalty. They will be responsible for tasks including collecting feedback, soliciting product improvement ideas, generating excitement about new market releases, sharing news, stimulating conversation about DeFi on our platform, and curating private events and hangouts.
Across both channels, this individual will be the point of contact to monitor and report on social sentiment on a daily basis. Tasks may include: competitor analysis, proactively identifying markets to list, surfacing relevant news / trends to the team, escalating potential crises, and sharing major complaints that warrant response.
