A US-based international company that is in the business of facilitating travel visas, and is the leader in its segment, is looking to engage an individual who has website content management (CMS) experience and can read/write fluently using Simplified Chinese characters. The company's world headquarters offices are in the Tyson's Corner, VA area.
We are looking for an individual who has at least two years of combined, professional experience using off-the-shelf and/or custom content management systems to manage corporate websites. Tasks will likely be fairly basic: reviewing and then editing/deleting/adding copy; adjusting spacing and alignment on pages, etc. While it "may" be the case that someone with basic content management skills could do well in this role, our client is also interested in considering professionals who have more advanced or highly advanced experience and skills. Along those lines... A working knowledge of HTML coding would be helpful. As noted elsewhere in this job description, we strive to offer pay rates that are both appropriate for the tasks outlined and correctly matched to candidate strengths.
* Meticulous attention to detail.
* Adaptable, flexible and open to rapid iteration.
* Keenly aware of deadlines and able to manage time accordingly.
* Excited to share and have your work critiqued.
All work will be done at the client organization's offices in the Tyson's Corner area of Northern Virginia. The building is highly accessible via Metrorail and Metrobus, and also close to the Beltway and other major commuter routes.
We expect this assignment to start in mid-June and continue for three (3) months. There is a possibility the assignment might be extended beyond three months if all involved parties believe an extension is a good idea.
Our client is ideally looking to engage an individual who can work a full-time schedule -- M-F, roughly 9am-5pm. They can offer flexibility re: daily start and end times, provided the majority of work is done during regular business hours. They are also interested in hearing from otherwise qualified individuals who want to work four or five slightly shorter days each week, or possibly even three or four regular length days. Individuals looking to work less than a full-time schedule should be able to offer at least 65% of their weekly work hours to activities for the employer.
Brainstorm Creative Resources often recommends hourly rate ranges in job descriptions. Sometimes we are not well versed enough re: current market rates, to firmly determine ranges prior to talking with candidates. That is the case here. We are interested in receiving applications and inquiries from all individuals who meet the skill requirements indicated above, and can read/write Simplified Chinese fluently. All rates that might eventually be offered, will be based on demonstrable experience and will be competitive within the metro-Washington, DC area.
