Positions Vacant - Sydney Australia

I know a very big, innovative, interesting organisation who do a lot of interesting web stuff who are looking for a "senior designer". If you are interested, drop me a line, and I'll pass you on,

More of my usual rants to resume, once the amount of work I currently am doing calms down a bit.

more web jobs

Sitepoint do some really good web developer books, and run interesting articles forums and blogs on subjects close to all our hearts and minds. They must be doing ok, as they have 4 jobs open at present, down in Melbourne Australia (that's down for me in Sydney, and down for just about anyone else in the world too, I'd guess).

Among them are:

  1. An office manager
  2. A managing editor for their print newsletters
  3. A marketing role
  4. A technical editor for their technical publications

So if you are in, near or would like to move to Melbourne (look, its not Sydney, but its a great city any ways, and what would I know, I never leave Bondi) head over, check it out, and drop them a line.

Great to see things picking up. The vibe I got in Austin at SxSW and in San Francisco on my recent trips was things are looking much better than they have for some years. People I know in Australia also feel similarly.
