Community Manager at Eastnine

Eastnine is a new audio coaching service for runners built around the idea that it’s better to train with others. Working with professional athletes and coaches from Team GB and beyond, we’re building a digital training platform to give you structured audio running sessions and creative sports content when and where you want it. And we’re making each session interactive so it feels like you’re always running with others and getting an extra push from them.

We’re looking for a passionate and creative Community Manager to join our team in London and help us build an active, engaged community of runners.

Amongst our backers and team are Local Globe, Cherry Ventures and founders and leaders from businesses such as Boiler Room, Virgin, Skype, Supercell and Spotify. As part of this team, you would be responsible for building deeper engagement with the community; identifying opportunities, managing communications, events, social media and content creation, as well as building relationships with key influencers.

You should have a true passion for running, a keen eye for detail and be comfortable to work in a fast-paced startup, managing multiple projects in an ever-changing environment.

You should also be comfortable to plan and attend industry events and play a part in building our approach to brand and community building. We want to be gathering learning and insights from our members and feeding insights into the product and engineering team.

You’ll be writing content and dealing with customer service issues in the same day. We need positivity and commitment to our community of early users all day long.
