Matt Bors and the Nib have created another job for a cartooner! The editorial cartoon segment of Medium is hiring an assistant editor::
The Nib has been around for almost a year now, publishing more than 20 comics a week, and we are continuing to grow. We’re looking for someone to join me and associate editor Eleri Harris as an editorial assistant to help run a comics vertical on a start-up publishing platform with big ambitions.
This is a part time position for 15–20 hours a week. So a few hours a day. We work remotely so it doesn’t matter where you’re based.
This sounds like an ideal position for…half the comics industry. Don’t swamp the site with your applications.
Medium, a platform for longer content, was launched last year by Twitter founder Ev Williams, and has been kicking around the Bay area Start Up arena for a while. They made news (well news at The Beat anyway) when they hired prize-winning editorial cartoonist Bors to edit their cartoon section, The Nib, and more when they hired an assistant, Eleri Harris. And now a whole staff. God bless start ups.
