Comic Book Jobs: Marvel.com
This “creative and highly motivated” person will “oversee day-to-day production of Marvel.com and to help define and manage the evolution of our Digital Comics products.”
Your responsibilities include a lot of buzzwords like “end users,” “stakeholders,” and “pipelines,” but you’ll basically be growing Marvel’s digital business – developing plans, implementing new programs, and rolling out new features and support for new products.
You’ll also get to monitor trends and news in “the digital comics space” (which I believe is also called “the internet”), collect feedback, conduct research, grow subscriptions and increase ad revenue.
And in a corporate setting where you have a choice of “great ideas,” the “ability to clearly communicate and realize ideas,” and the “ability to pay close attention to details while pursuing larger goals,” the “great ideas” part will be in last place here.
You’ll need 7 years experience in Web production and/or product management and familiarity with web production tools. It’ll help if you’re a multi-tasker and a high-achiever, but you knew that already, right?
Marvel has a pretty good benefits package that includes medical insurance, drug coverage, life insurance and paid days off for holidays and illness, so you can’t go wrong there. If you ask nice, maybe they’ll throw in a free iPad.
Good luck, job seekers!
