Job description interestingness at Authentic Jobs

~ 11 December 2008 ~

I’ve plumbed through most of the listings currently on Authentic Jobs and have made note below of some of the interesting job descriptions, perk benefits, and stuff I personally find appealing.

But before that, another great testimonial. Dave Greiner, co-founder of Sydney-based Freshview, finally filled a position for the (pure awesomeness) Campaign Monitor email marketing app using Authentic Jobs:

After 6 months and finally accepting that we’d probably never fill the position, we decided to give Authentic Jobs a go. Within 2 short days we found the amazing interface designer we’d been searching for. We just relocated him to Sydney and couldn’t be happier.

Congrats to Dave and the Utah-based-soon-to-be-Aussie individual who filled the position. (I don’t know this individual, but Dave tells me he’s from Utah.)

  • This is really cool. U.S.-based Virginia Commonwealth University needs a Web Developer who will live and work in Doha, Qatar among six other highly ranked American Universities located together in a dynamic community called Education City.

No monotony here.
