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

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 Virginia Tech 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 recruiting (this is a big focus for us right now), Virginia Tech football, and/or Virginia Tech basketball (though we love non-revenue sports as well).

Our ideal candidate:

  • Has strong knowledge about Virginia Tech, 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 working 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 AT sbnation dot com.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Go Hokies.
