Job Opportunities


EDITORIAL ASSISTANT

We're seeking an Editorial Assistant to help acquire and develop 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. We’re a very picky publisher with a focus on developing and publishing quality books (both print and electronic) on topics like programming, security, hacking, LEGO, and science and math. Best-sellers include titles like Hacking: The Art of Exploitation, Automate the Boring Stuff with Python, Python for Kids, and The LEGO Architect. 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 and successful company with a close-knit environment and a staff who 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 and writing skills. You should be able to research and write clearly; organize and manage multiple tasks effectively; and know your way around software and operating systems. You should also enjoy exploring and playing with new technology. If you’re a technically-oriented geek and like to muck around with software and hardware, that’s another plus.

Requirements
A college degree. A good head on your shoulders. Passion. Excellent writing, editing, and project management skills. Tech savvy.

Benefits
Holiday/vacation/sick time; 401k with match; profit-sharing; pension plan; LTD; and medical, dental, and vision insurance. And free Aeropress coffee and cold cuts!
