Community Support

You are somebody who loves being online all day, especially hanging out on Chess.com. You'd do this job for free (or almost already do!) but would love to get paid for it instead :) You like interacting with other members. You are very handy on the web. You might not know HTML, but you have handy computer skills. You have a fun and friendly personality. You learn quickly. You have excellent attention to detail. Must have own computer & broadband connection. Must be 18+. Must have finished High School (or equivalent). Must have excellent communication skills in English. This is a full-time position. Compensation depends on experience.

Is this you? If so, send an email to job608@chess.com with the Subject "Chess.com Job: Community Support".

Community Manager

You are fascinated with online communities and other consumer websites. You enjoy being online and have a very healthy understanding of the internet. You are good with people - both employees and customers. Maybe you are just graduating from college and can't stand the fact that you have to take some lame cubicle job. Or you are so bored of what you are doing at work now and would love to jump feet-first into full-time web work. Either way, you need to change things and do something you actually care about and where you will learn a TON. You understand at least a few of these concepts: web marketing, general management, product development, customer service, bookkeeping, UI/usability, online advertising, etc. You value experience and lifestyle over cash. You want to learn from an experienced team of webpreneurs. You will work directly with me to handle the too-many things that I do every day. You must be 18+. College degree preferred. Must have own computer & broadband connection. Must have excellent communication skills in English. This is a full-time position. Compensation (possibly including equity) depends on experience.
