All, hope this isn't too far off topic but I know there are a lot of
talented people on this list who may be interested in this sort of
thing. I've been interviewing for a couple weeks and am broadening the
search a little. Please shoot me back an e-mail with your resume
and/or url: asmith at digitalorchid.com if you're interested.

Digital Orchid is hiring several full-time employee positions in the
following area:

Wireless Branded Digital Media Products Master

This role is much like a web master for cell phone wireless media
products. The role is responsible for content feature design, content
configuration and development, deployment, operations and maintenance
of name-branded consumer products having thousands of subscribers.
Typical product areas include sports, entertainment, music, models, and
more, and may contain one or more of real-time (<1 sec latency)
applications, screensavers, ringtones, alerts, video, audio and other
digital media.

This is a great way to get into the wireless products field while
staying on a software career track. Digital Orchid provides very
competitive salary, stock options, and benefits compensation.

Required skills include:

* ability to 'get into' the mind and hearts of the remote product's
consumers to recommend and make changes that evolve the product, and
develop the subscriber base into a growing, dedicated and enthusiastic
following - much like a good web site
* ability to use XML, HTML and learn similar variations of web-like
markup languages
* ability to use a variety of cell phone models
* excellent creativity and resourcefulness
* excellent written and verbal communications
* excellent teamwork in small workgroups
* good general software/network systems IT configuration/integration
* a passion for excellence
* ability to work with QA staff and architect developers
* ability to work with third-party brand partners to manage new
digital media acquisition & delivery
* (strong plus, but not required: Skills in graphic artwork, SQL,
scripting Perl/PHP)
* (good plus, but not required: Written fluency in Spanish, Chinese
and/or Portuguese)

We supply all cell phone models for each brand, and use Digital
Orchid's content-driven, services-oriented architecture platform
technology to seamlessly integrate digital media sources, operations
controls and multiple wireless technologies including BREW, Java MIDP
(J2ME), Window Mobile, SMS/MMS, and others. We use standard web,
database and server infrastructure technologies in our high-density
hosted data center system. Our product development processes follow
industry-standard software best practices.

The position spans creative, technical, multi-media, test, operations
and marketing by creating a branded wireless media experience and
cultivating a wireless brand following; the position reports to a
Senior Creative Director. According to demonstrated talent the
position may grow, transfer, evolve or be promoted into additional
responsiblities or related or leadership responsibilities in product
software engineering or creative media. It's up to the employee to
determine how far they can go.

Because of our award-winning products and company position in this new
market, Digital Orchid received a strategic investment from Qualcomm in
2004, the first they have ever given to a startup company only a few
years old (Digital Orchid is a privately-held company founded in 2002).
This investment received front-page reporting in wireless journals such
as the industry-leading RCR Wireless News.

thanx Ziya and I realize this is because of the timeliness of the post
in relation to other topics being discussed, but in the future let me
do the list moderating.

yes, this is an example of someone not following the guidelines ... For
people who want to post jobs, there are guidelines on our website for
just that purpose at http://discuss.ixdg.org

I believe it says "...in the following area:"

Was that confusing?

I apologize for not reading the rules about posting. I assumed it was okay b/c I have seen other messages along those lines before. I appreciate the quality of the postings on this list and hope no one was offended by my trying to find a new hire.

Thanks,

It wasn't confusing, it just didn't mention the location of the job *at
all.*

I apologize for singling you out, but one of the persistent complaints from
the list has been the lack of location identification in job posts. (Kind of
like forgetting to put your name on your own resume. :-)

Speaking generally, companies/organizations can't be so self-centered that
they should expect potential candidates to intuit where they are located:
job reqs ought to be an invitation, not a quiz!

The following area was referring to job specialty, not geography. This seems obvious if it's read, but perhaps not. Didn't realize this was such a hot button. I'll make sure not to look for employees off this list anymore.

I guess we can all go back to discussing something more important like mac vs. pc.

Thanks for the help,

Now you're insulting me. This is not about *my* reading comprehension, it's
about *your* negligence to include something as fundamental yet simple as
the location of the job ANYWHERE in your post. Geez.
