Do you love Northern VA? Are you the go-to person when it comes to planning a night out, always ready with a recommendation for the city’s most seasoned finds and hidden hotspots?
As the Northern VA Community Manager, you will be a full-time Yelp employee (working out of your home or anywhere in your metro with WiFi) at the helm of a vibrant, buzzing community of locals who drink, shop, and play their way through the city via peer recommendations on Yelp.
The Community Manager role requires you to blend strong event planning, social media, and marketing skills with the goal of highlighting local businesses and further embedding the Yelp Elite Squad into the local community.
What is the Yelp Elite Squad, you ask? They are a group of Yelpers who have gone the extra mile with their content- think awesome photos, thoughtful reviews, complimenting others’ content, etc. In an effort to recognize these key contributors, we display “Elite” badges on their Yelp profile, and invite them to exclusive events with other locals that are put on by the Community team (aka you!).

You will build relationships and partnerships with local organizations with the goal of reaching new audiences.
You will manage the day-to-day curation and growth of Yelp’s regional social media presence across Instagram, including copywriting and visual asset creation via Canva and/or video curation and editing.
