Looking for a Job? Los Angeles Clippers are Hiring Social Media Managers

The NBA's Los Angeles Clippers are now hiring a  Social Media Manager in Los Angeles, California.

The Los Angeles Clippers are an American professional basketball team based in Los Angeles, California. They compete in the National Basketball Association (NBA) as a member of the league's Western Conference Pacific Division. The Clippers play their home games at Staples Center, an arena they share with fellow NBA team the Los Angeles Lakers, as well as the Los Angeles Sparks of the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) and the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL).

The franchise was founded in 1970 as the Buffalo Braves, one of three expansion teams to join the NBA that year. The Braves moved from Buffalo, New York to San Diego, California in 1978 and became known as the San Diego Clippers. In 1984, the team moved to Los Angeles. Through much of its history, the franchise failed to see significant regular season or playoff success. The Clippers were frequently seen as a perennial loser in American professional sports, drawing unfavorable comparisons to their historically successful city rivals, the Lakers.

Since the acquisition of core players Blake Griffin, DeAndre Jordan, and Chris Paul in 2009 and 2010, the Clippers have been widely considered as one of the best teams in the NBA. They won their first division title in 2013–14, and their second in 2014–15. They qualified for three consecutive postseasons from 2015 to 2017. In each of those seasons, the Clippers faced the Golden State Warriors in the first round of the playoffs, losing all three times. The 2017–18 season was marked by team turmoil after Griffin and Paul both left in free agency during the offseason; however, the Clippers still managed to win 48 games and make their fourth consecutive playoff appearance.

The Clippers share a rivalry with the Lakers and the Warriors due to the geographic proximity of all three teams. All three groups have attained considerable success in recent years, making the rivalry intense regardless of records or standings. The Lakers–Clippers rivalry is considered one of the best in the NBA.

The Los Angeles Clippers are now looking to hire a social media manager to work on scenes filming in Los Angeles, California.
