That’s right. Find us a Maine—or anyway within an hour of Portland, ME—employee and we’ll give you $1,000 in books.
We did this once before. It’s how we found John, our Systems Adminitrator. (John found himself, so he got his own $1,000.)
Jobs. We have three potential jobs to fill.
- Graphic designer/user-experience guru. Experience designing for data-rich sites like LibraryThing a must.
- Brainy, overworked assistant. Smart, flexible, organized, relentless—willing to do both high-level (strategic analysis) and low-level (send-out-these-CueCats) work. The job is non-technical, but you need to be super-comfortable around computers.
Rules! You get a $1,000 gift certificate to Abebooks, Amazon, Booksense or the independent bookseller of your choice. (Longfellow Books? Books Etc.?) You can split it between them. You don’t need to buy books with it (but why do that?).
To qualify, you need to connect us to someone. Either you introduce them to us—and they follow up with a resume and etc.—or they mention your name in their email (“So-and-so told me about LibraryThing”). You can recommend yourself, but if you found out about it on someone’s blog, we hope you’ll do the right thing and make them the beneficiary.
Contact Tim Spalding (firstname.lastname@example.org) for more information, or to send a resume.
Small print: Our decision is final, incontestable, irreversible and completely dictatorial. It only applies when an employee is hired full-time, not part-time, contract or for a trial period. If we don’t hire someone for the job, we don’t pay. The contact must happen in the next month. Void where prohibited. You pay taxes, and the insidious hidden tax of shelving.
Needless to say, we’ll throw in a free lifetime membership, so you can catalog your loot. And you’ll get the satisfaction you helped LibraryThing become everything it could be.
