World History Encyclopedia is a non-profit organisation publishing the world's most-read history encyclopedia. Our mission is to engage people with cultural heritage and to improve history education worldwide.

  • Ability to respond to comments and engage with the audience effectively, moderating discussions and guiding conversations.
  • Strong sense of aesthetics and ability to create visually appealing posts.
  • Mindset to take initiative on your own, determine your own strategies and set your own goals, without direct management, as this is a remote position.
  • Understanding of copyright laws and ethical standards in content creation.


  • Post freshly published content from the encyclopedia to social media in the most suitable way to generate audience engagement.
  • Post older content to social media in a similar way as new content, taking into account current events, public holidays, celebrations days/months, all in order to drive engagement.
