SmartShanghai is looking for one lovable person with an unhealthy obsession for details to manage our huge venue and events directory. This is an entry level role for a native Chinese speaker.
SmartShanghai’s database has more than 15,000 listings, each added one at a time by one of us over the 15 years we’ve existed. We are not user-generated; we are edited. That means it is someone’s job to keep on top of the directory, manage the addition of new venues (10-20 every week), mark and record the closing of other venues, and generally keep the whole system up-to-date.
It’s the herculean task of keeping the directory organized and running. It’s a big job. It requires you to become an expert on the city. It’s incredibly detail-oriented. And it is primarily administrational. On one day, you might be updating the opening hours of every Wagas in town, and on another day you might be calling every bar in town to update their happy hour deals.
It’s a great entry level job for someone seeking experience working in a small international media company that’s helping tens of thousands of English speaking residents find their way around and things to do.
You’ll be working in a mixed international team with a creative work environment in a bright, comfortable office in downtown Shanghai. We offer an above average salary, flexible holidays and work hours. Working language within the office is English. We use modern tools such as Slack and Trello for communication.
