Nerd-Craft Job Post: MAKE Magazine

Wow. This is an awesome opportunity from a publication we love: MAKE magazine.

Here's the squishy:

Extraordinary Publishing Group Seeks Extraordinary Online Manager

Quick, name an upstart magazine team that's been featured on CBS News, The Colbert Report, Jimmy Kimmel Live, CNN, NBC and PBS. One that's been covered by The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Newsweek, Wired and virtually every major daily and online blog in its first 36 months. Whose two DIY magazines won back-to-back awards for the best new magazine launch. Whose websites attract more than 3 million visitors/month and whose Weekend Projects video is one of the top-rated tech podcasts anywhere. Name a magazine team who two years ago introduced what has already become the the largest Do-It-Yourself (DIY) event on the planet. And who last year shipped thousands of DIY kits, tools and books to makers, teachers and students around the world.

If you answered O'Reilly's Maker Media group, you'd be right. In just three years, our small but motivated team has launched Make: magazine, Craft: magazine, makezine.com, craftzine.com, Maker Faire, a line of DIY books, and The Maker Store. But now, we're looking for yet another truly unique individual to join the Maker Media family in the capacity of our new Online Manager.

This is a hands-on position on a hands-on team requiring a combination of management, design, and coding skills. You need to be able to come out of one of our roundtable brainstorms, synthesize new ideas from a mix of editorial, design, brand and marketing stake holders, and then transform your ideas into reality. You will manage projects and day-to-day operations, and implement code and content for the Maker Media sites including Makezine.com, Craftzine.com, MakerFaire.com, Hackszine.com, and a few other cool ideas we're working on.

Must be able to work closely with O'Reilly's IS staff and outside vendors to ensure that features and tools are implemented properly. The online manager needs to be a self-motivated, detail-oriented individual with exceptional project management skills. At the same time, we really don't care a lot about charts and tools you learned in school, but we do want to know that you can define the tasks and organize and manage resources to get it all done.
