A sweet job listing

Posted 15 June 2014 - 10:40 AM

Someone out there is going to love this job:

Quote

If you've got a bunch of old computer languages under your belt, the Living Computer Museum in Seattle, Washington, wants you.


I'm a little tickled by this part:

Quote

Required computer skills
MS Office (Word, Excel, Outlook)
MS Project


I guess vi, sed, awk, etc. are assumed...

(I'm not after the job myself, but I do want to go and check out the museum next time I'm in Seattle. If I go on a Tuesday, I'd probably want to check out the Museum of Communications as well, and make a day of it)

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 2

Where is Sid From User Friendly at?


I assume, since they mention IBM, they are talking about OS2 also.

I think System/360 more than OS/2, honestly. This is a big iron posting.

Then there's this..

Quote

Netflix is looking to hire someone in the UK to watch movies and TV shows and “tag” them to help improve the customer experience.

Known as “taggers”, the lucky candidate will be responsible for watching and analysing movies and TV programmes that are yet to be streamed on Netflix.

Netflix calls this the “tagging process”, where taggers choose from a pool of a 1000 words that best describe the programme. Be it tone, plot, description, style, scenario etc.
[...]
You need to be a serious movie buff, obviously. Netflix is looking for someone with a “passion” for movies and TV programmes. Which should be evidenced by a degree in a related field, or someone who has worked in the arts and has some analysis experience.

Speaking to TechRadar, Todd Yellin VP of product innovation, explained what kind of candidates Netflix is looking for: “I do consider myself to be a film geek and I am into a lot of the content on Netflix and that’s what we want. What we are looking for is someone who is a real expert on movies on TV shows.

“They may have done script coverage for a production company or have been a film critic or someone who is just mad about movies.

Having experience working with Wizards of the Coast in the past, I would stay far the fuck away from them. I didn't work FOR them but I worked for a company that was utterly raped by them. They're as bad as King games and have been a blight on the gaming industry for decades now.
