More on the role

Working in media requires thinking on your feet. Working for a startup requires wearing multiple hats. At Just Women’s Sports, we’re looking for savvy team players who have a strong vision and voice, but who are also willing to get down and do the dirty work when needed. Being a part of a small, hard-working team requires having a can-do attitude, as well as the ability to both multi-task on the fly and work independently. If this sounds exciting, give us a shout!
