Do you give a shit about the state of mainstream rock music? Do you wonder where the Iggy Pop and Johnny Rotten of this decade are? Let me tell you, they exist. Dangerous rock isn’t dead. It’s simply not living on Spotify. Hipster Bait has been created to find these badass artists and present them to the public through our interactive, gamified music discovery platform. And you could be sitting in the driver’s seat of our rock and roll nightmare machine... 

Job Description
As the Community Manager for Hipster Bait, you’ll be responsible for managing our social media accounts and onboarding new artists into the game. This will include posting daily to Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Some of these posts will involve announcing bands as they’re revealed into the game. Sometimes you’ll simply be sharing cool rock related news—which also means you get paid to learn about what cutting edge, rocktacular things are happening in the music industry. The dirt as they say. You could also be responsible for launching and hosting a killer podcast to spotlight new bands and raise awareness for Hipster Bait (if that’s cool with you)

You’ll be given the digital keys to the Hipster Bait dashboard where you’ll help artists set up their band profiles as they are added into the game. You’ll also serve as their first line of contact to troubleshoot any issues and provide additional onboarding support where necessary.

For all of our local app tests and events, you will be the main support for logistics and communications with partners, guests and the Hipster Bait team. This position is based out of Victoria, BC.
