You must be:
- Able to write quickly and well

- Mac lover
- Love of cheese
- Assist Abby with LibraryThing for Libraries
- Provide customer support to libraries
- Attend trade shows
- Learn whatever we need you to learn
- Think creatively and suggest improvements
- Whatever else is needed. We are still a startup so “duties” are fluid.
Boston, MA or Portland, ME area strongly preferred. If we get enough applications we will probably not look at others–no offense.
Salary plus gold-plated health and dental insurance. We require hard work, but we are flexible about hours.
