Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 155 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

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.

Sounds interesting. When you reach Hebrew, give me a call :) – Madara Uchiha Jun 5 '13 at 18:07
The devil on my shoulder told me to flag this NARQ – Flexo Jun 5 '13 at 18:14
Flagging as spam. – Anthony Pegram Jun 5 '13 at 18:15
@Flexo and now, at long last, we know the real reason why NARQ was removed from the close reason list on MSO. – Pops Jun 5 '13 at 18:16
How about Canadian? – Aaron Bertrand Jun 5 '13 at 19:20
@AaronBertrand, appreciate the thought, but we already have more Canadians than we know what to do with. – Jaydles Jun 5 '13 at 19:24
@user414076: This is the opposite of spam! They want to give you money. Spam would be "Is your Portuguese sad and lacking? Improve its extent to impress your community!" – Josh Caswell Jun 5 '13 at 19:25
I totally speak Portuguese. It's that language with the throaty sounds, right? – Pëkka Jun 5 '13 at 20:11
Hmmm... I wonder why they want that – Undo Jun 5 '13 at 20:11
Shouldn't you have asked this question in Portuguese as well? Maybe? – JoshDM Jun 5 '13 at 20:36
@JoshDM I know, they should totally hire someone who speaks Portuguese to deal with stuff like ... wait. – Asad Saeeduddin Jun 5 '13 at 20:38
I have a friend who may be interested :P – Manishearth Jun 6 '13 at 3:31
On a more serious note, won't this be hard to scale up if/when we get more such sites? – Manishearth Jun 6 '13 at 3:34
status-completed? – Gilles Aug 24 '13 at 9:51
@AsheeshR Or, just hire Alenanno and be done with it :P – Manishearth Aug 24 '13 at 13:59

This was the guy we were looking for:

It would be a lot easier next time if you just post the picture in the question. Makes finding them far easier. – Bart Sep 25 '13 at 18:39
@bart, we didn't want to waste your time, as the one we had was super low-res; we've just now gotten the technology to "enhance it" sufficiently to be of any use. – Jaydles Sep 25 '13 at 18:41
I used to be that guy. – Gabe Sep 25 '13 at 18:55
@Gabe: You know we haven't hired Mario yet. I guess it has something to do with salary demands... – Jon Ericson Sep 25 '13 at 19:01
@Gabe curious to know if the picture was taken before, after or during your recruitment to SE? :-) – Shadow Wizard Sep 25 '13 at 20:37
@ShaWizDowArd Way before. These days I'm all 1000-yard stare. – Gabe Sep 25 '13 at 20:38
