freshmeat Job Openings

The expansions of the past year have left us in need of some extra help. If you or someone you know would be interested in working at freshmeat, please read this article.

It's been a busy year at freshmeat. In addition to our traditional offerings, we're now including information about themes and Mac OS X projects. The extra burden has stretched our staff unacceptably thin, and we need reinforcements.

We need to fill 10 new Editor positions. These will be our usual fulltime positions with starting salaries of $65,000/year. In addition to the standard health benefits, basic laptop computers and Internet access will be provided. Also, as most of you know, scoop has extensive training in both Swedish and Deep Tissue massage techniques, and will be available for personal sessions during all working hours.

Applicants should have a reasonable knowledge of Unix software and good written English skills. A programming or sysadmin background is useful, but not necessary.

As usual, since these employees will be serving the freshmeat community, the community will help with their selection. If you wish to offer yourself for consideration, please go to #freshmeat on, give a brief resumé and explanation of why you feel you should be chosen, and answer any questions that are asked of you. Anyone interested in taking part in the selection process should join us there. A log of the discussion will be kept, and a vote will be taken at the end of the day.

If you have any questions, please ask in the channel. Thanks.

> i know linux.

I'm sorry, but if you have a personal relationship with Linux, that
would create an unacceptable conflict of interest.
