Whether that’s through adding events to the site, sending email blasts, or engaging with users on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, your goal is to make DoLA the best possible resource for answering the question: “what am I going to do tonight?”.
We’re looking for a hyper-organized, detail-oriented all-star who is completely immersed in Los Angeles’s cultural landscape. You’ll become the primary voice of an established brand with 214K email subscribers, 109K social followers and 250K monthly visitors -- and you will continually increase engagement across all channels through your effectiveness and wit.
You’ll be working out of DoLA’s office in Downtown LA and supported by DoStuff’s team in Austin, as well as the other brilliant minds at DoStuff cities around the country. This is a full-time, salaried position.

Adding events to DoLA
Managing queues of incoming events
Helping users add events
Scouring the internet for events to add
Curating collections of events
Evergreen lists like Top Picks, Free, On Sales

A strong short-form writer with a defined voice.

Following the BEST people, bands and brands on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
Going out regularly -- to concerts, comedy, events, restaurants, happy hours and more.
