Community Operations Manager

Location: Remote Position
Type: full-time
Expiry Date: 29/12/2022


We’re Mercury, and we are re-imagining the collegiate fan experience one university at a time. We’re a 21st century media, marketing, and e-commerce partner for collegiate athletic programs that utilizes the latest technologies to deepen fan engagement and monetization. We help athletes earn money off their Name, Image, and Likeness, help universities navigate and evolve in the ever-changing digital landscape, and help fans get rewarded for actions they have always taken but never been rewarded for.


As Community Operations Manager, you’ll join a Community Team that is committed to building long-term, productive, and engaged relationships with the members of our collegiate fan communities.

Your North Star metric is growing our communities. Your day-to-day will include engaging our members and helping them connect to the Mercury experience. You are the main guide as they meet other fans, participate in events and contests, navigate our platforms, and manage their collection. All while upholding our moderation guidelines that create a fun and engaging environment for every type of fan.

You aren’t afraid to get involved in conversations and know how to navigate them in an inclusive way that is consistent with our brand and product roadmap. On the flip side, you know when conversations are better left untouched by administrators and resolved within the community.
