Information architect/content strategist
September 20, 2010 5:26 PM

You're a smart IA that knows content strategy inside and out -- or a content strategist that can speak UX and make Visio bubble diagrams of page content concepts. Plus, you like technology outside of work. Plus, going to work in Fremont, CA seems pretty groovy.

What a strange coincidence -- I'm looking to hire such a person!

There's a corporate & commerce website with hundreds of products that needs your love -- editorial strategy, syndication optimization, URL strategy, conceptual problem solving of the usability kind. You'd work on the Writing & Brand Architecture team, with a close and friendly relationship with the Global Web team. You'd be a critical part of a global marketing team for a publicly traded, globally recognized company. And you'd get to play with lots of cool gadgets.

Send resumes and very intelligent cover letters to my HR contact so she can make sure you're as awesome as you say you are, IA/Content genius.

But since you're a stickler for details, too, here's the formal listing:
