Hello everyone, I am doing some work for a trailrunning company based in France. They are looking for a community manager for their US activity. Below is the detailed description.

Like in any other country where we are present, the US version of our web platform www.raidlight.com is a « simple » and strong growth axis for our company, and also is likely to become a full strategic axis for our international environment.

After consolidating the French and European market, the export development represents a strategic axis of our company. Thanks to a niche identity and expertise in Trail-running, this geographical expansion represents a relay of economic growth, but also in terms of scale & volumes, international development providing opportunities with leverage effects. This strategy is deployed across all our channels.

We would like to develop the web channel on the same model than we have done in other countries:
- Use the web to create & grow a community of Trail-runners
