b5media Currently Hiring
In the absence of a “current openings” page on the TorCamp wiki (ahem @ Will), I figured it’d be useful to post some positions b5 either has open now or will very soon have open. If you or anyone you know is qualified and interested in working in a dynamic environment, please let me know. Packages will always be competitive. Location is open, though in most cases Toronto is preferred (that said, we’re a virtual company so we’re pretty open).
Here are those positions:
Advertising Sales Representative: We are looking to fill this position in late April, early May. We are looking for an experienced (2-3 years) ad sales rep who is looking for something more engaging, fun and fluid than working in the typical larger organization. Our packages for ad sales are more than competitive, so if you’re looking to push the boundaries of the ad industry, let us know. Ideal locations are (in this order): Toronto, NYC and San Francisco.
WordPress Developer: b5media is a major WordPress company. We’re (give or take) one of the top 10 WordPress installs in the world. We continue to push the boundaries of WordPress, and this year will see us making major strides in what WordPress can do, in contributing to the core, to the team and to the community and in pushing the boundaries of what blogging means. Our packages for this position are, again, more than competitive. So if you want to work in an environment where there are always 1000 things going on, where your input is critical in many day-to-day decisions and where you get to immerse yourself in WordPress development, let us know. Desired locations (though any is doable) are (in this order): Toronto, Baltimore, NYC and San Francisco. This is an immediate opening.
Operations Manager: We are seeking someone who is experienced in managing the operations of a technology company. The ability to speak “tech”, “dev” and “business” is critical. This is a Toronto-based position. You will be working with a fresh young team and will ultimately be responsible for most of the day-to-day activities of the company and will work closely with myself and Mark Evans. This is an immediate opening.
Affiliate Manager: This is another crossover position. 1/3 sales (not ad sales), 1/3 community development and 1/3 customer service/tech support. You will be the first person in a new business unit, growing the business aggressively. As such you’ll do “everything” at the start (though you’ll have access to internal dev/design/tech resources) and grow the team over the next year. We are effectively looking for an entrepreneur within our entrepreneurial organization. Experience in bizdev, technology, blogging and knowledge of the ad industry are all key qualifications. Ideally this would be a Toronto position, though we’re open. This can be a part-time, trasitiona position for the first 2-3 months. This position is vague on purpose, so apply if you’re interested in: growing a new business unit, selling ice to eskimos, having fun, developping community, and helping bloggers build and grow beyond where they’re at now. This is an immediate opening.
Music Phreak: This is an immediate opening. We are looking for someone truly passionate about music to run a new business unit. This is more than vague on purpose. This is a part-time position (for now), working from anywhere is fine. Core skills are a huge passion for music, a love of developing community, some technical skills and a desire to do “new stuff” (read that how you will).
Print Designer: This is a contract position. Immediate opening. Any location is fine. We are looking for a print designer to take some of our existing material and either repurpose it or create a half-dozen print items from scratch. Having a fantastic printing partner comfortable with die cutting, masked gloss overlays and other advanced print techniques such as foiling is critical.
How to Apply
Interested? Drop me an email: email@example.com! I’ll be in touch as soon as possible (might take a day or two) :)
