Social Media Lead

About the Team

The Communications team at OpenAI is a group of seasoned professionals in PR/media relations, public policy, employee communications, community and audience development, design and other external-facing functions. We work to educate reporters, policymakers, researchers, developers, customers and the general public about OpenAI, our values and our technology.  

About the Role

We’re looking for a Social Media Lead who is passionate about educating others, with a deep care for reaching underrepresented communities.

OpenAI is a very special company — we’re governed by a nonprofit, and people come to work here because they think developing and deploying AI safely is the most important work to be done in our lifetime. The Social Media Lead will be a part of a team that is focused on community engagement — creating pathways for people to help shape the future of AI and educating them about important technological developments that will impact their lives.

The purpose of social media is different here. We’re not focused on followers or likes; we’re focused on meeting people where they are at and helping them access resources and tools they need to be successful in a world that’s rapidly changing. We’re looking for someone who views social media platforms as tools in their tool box and can effectively use different platforms to communicate and further our mission.

This role is based in San Francisco, CA. We use a hybrid work model of 3 days in the office per week and offer relocation assistance to new employees.

In this role, you will:

  • Develop and implement a comprehensive social media strategy aligned with company goals, ensuring consistent messaging and brand positioning across all platforms. This role will be directly responsible for managing a number of OpenAI’s social media accounts.
  • Explain complicated technological advances to different audiences with a variety of technical backgrounds, ranging from someone who has just discovered ChatGPT to audiences of technical researchers who are experts in their fields.
  • Champion the importance of user feedback and audience engagement within OpenAI, advocating for a culture of active listening and continuous improvement. 
  • Collaborate cross-functionally to drive, build and maintain systems that allow OpenAI teams to learn from our audiences.  

You might thrive in this role if you:

  • Have experience managing high-profile accounts across top social media platforms. 
  • Are deeply curious about emerging platforms and new developments in the social media landscape.
  • Have exceptional communication skills and can distill complex technological concepts into clear and engaging content.
  • Have a record of diversifying digital audiences, ensuring that traditionally underserved communities have access to information and opportunities. 
  • Thrive in a collaborative environment and enjoy working across teams and departments with colleagues from different backgrounds and areas of expertise.
  • Are comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and can adapt to changing priorities and technologies. You are resourceful and can find creative solutions to challenges.
  • Believe in the importance of transparency and authenticity in communication.

At OpenAI, we believe artificial intelligence has the potential to help people solve immense global challenges, and we want the upside of AI to be widely shared. Join us in shaping the future of technology.

Compensation, Benefits and Perks

  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance for you and your family
  • Mental health and wellness support
  • 401(k) plan with 4% matching
