After the last time I did a post like this I ended up regretting it, that position was never filled, and I had to ultimately eat some blog crow—and I don’t like that.
But, but, but, I can proudly say that those days are over, and we really are hiring, but this time we want a web developer, web content manager who is familiar with open source technologies, particularly WordPress. That’s right, looks like the university is committed to putting the http://umw.edu website on WordPress, and the call for a Web Content Manager has been posted.
If you apply for and get this position, you’ll be working with our inimitable web master, Cathy Derecki, on bringing WordPress to a college community that is ripe for deep integration of all kinds of cool stuff. Some syndication rich department sites, relationships between those sites and the course and student work on UMW Blogs, as well as some challenging and interesting architecture issues. It promises to be a lot of fun, and you have the opportunity to build a website from the ground up—visionaries welcome 🙂 I’ll be part of the process for at least the next year. But, the fact remains, we need to bring in someone who can both think through and integrate the code “that makes the young girls sing…you are music and you write the code.”
I mean come on, we’re in a depression here, and you could be the proud owner of a state job, health insurance, a regular paycheck, retirement, vacation…hell it’s almost like you died and went to commie heaven, you dirty hippies. So what are you waiting for? –this patchouli patch ain’t gonna smell the room up all day, put down the hackysack and get yourself a real job!
