We mentioned this in Shog9's blog post officially welcoming Tim Post as a full time CM, but we wanted to get the word out:
We're looking for Community Manager candidates:
- With at least some programming experience or training
- Who are fluent in written Portuguese and English.
That sound like you? Apply here today.
Some folks inquired as to why we need this. We've long had a backlog of proposals in Area 51 for sites that are (non-English) language specific, and as we continue to work on localization, we need to start building up the community team with individuals who speak languages that are native to a large number of potential users (Brazil, Japan, etc.)
As always, our ideal candidates are folks like you who already grok our system, but if you have friends or colleagues with outside community management skills who speak Portuguese, feel free to share the listing with them.
Note that the role is not going to be limited to covering a future Portuguese-language site. We're hiring someone who will function like our current CMs do now, but will be able to be a primary contact who's fluent in the language when we are ready to roll out Portuguese site(s) in the future.
