No Starch Press, a fast-growing, independent publisher of books for geeks seeks a savvy and passionate marketing geek. Our recent best-sellers include titles like Python for Kids and Beautiful LEGO, as well as more technical titles like Practical Malware Analysis and Ruby Under a Microscope.
We're looking for someone to help take our books and our brand to the next level. You'll guide our marketing efforts together with the rest of our team as you:
Please respond to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We're in immediate need of an Editorial Assistant to help with the development of our titles. This is an entry-level position with the opportunity for rapid advancement. We'll make you part of our team and give you real work from day one.
This is a great opportunity if you don't want to be just another cog in the wheel of some giant corporation. We're a small company with a close-knit environment and a staff that cares. If you're a self-starter with a passion for geeky things, a creative mind, and the desire to dig in, this just might be the job for you.
You must have excellent editing, writing, and proofreading skills. You should be able to research on your own and write clearly. You should be able to organize and manage multiple tasks effectively and know your way around software and operating systems. You should enjoy exploring and playing with new technology. If you know what Linux is and have used it that's a plus. If you consider yourself a technically-oriented geek and like to muck around with software and hardware, that's another plus.
A college degree. A good head on your shoulders. Passion. Excellent writing, copy editing, proofreading, and project management skills. Tech savvy.
