Love Auburn football, recruiting, basketball? College & Magnolia is hiring

New, 20 comments

We're looking for the right Auburn enthusiast to help us take College & Magnolia to the next level.

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

Do you love Auburn sports? Do you have a keen understanding for what's news? Do you love writing and/or storytelling? Do you want to help build and run the best damn Auburn sports community on the internet, and really make it your own? If so, we want to talk to you.

College & Magnolia is looking for new management. Chris Fuhrmeister, who's done a tremendous job laying the foundation here, is moving on to pursue new opportunities. Our ideal manager will commit to programming an editorial calendar and ensuring the trains run on time, run or assist in running the community social media presence, as well as other administrative duties to promote positive growth goals. Above all else, we want someone who loves Auburn and wants it represented on the SB Nation network in the same light as our other top college sports properties.

In particular, we'd looking to hear from those that follow Auburn recruiting (this is a big focus for us right now), Auburn football, and/or Auburn basketball (though we love non-revenue sports as well).

Our ideal candidate:

  • Has strong knowledge about Auburn, both current and historical.
  • Possesses strong writing skills.
  • Has a nose for news, both in knowing what is important and identifying where to find it.
  • Is able to write in line with our best practices for growing an audience.
  • Is able to write and publish quickly while remaining accurate.
  • Is a self-starter who can work with minimal direction.
  • Possesses solid communication skills.
  • Is comfortable coordinating and managing others in a virtual environment.

Previous writing experience is preferred, but not required.

If you'd like to join our team, or would just like more information, please email a resume (and a writing sample, something about sports, please) to college@sbnation.com. We look forward to hearing from you.

War Eagle.
