TidBITS Is Hiring... in Ithaca

Send Article to a Friend

After a summer of feeling utterly overwhelmed despite our best attempts to work more efficiently and use the Getting Things Done techniques, we've decided that the most effective way to get things done is to hire other people to do them. Plus, it's cheaper and safer than messing about with the time-space continuum.

We're currently hiring for two contract positions: a technology writer to help with TidBITS and Take Control research, fact-checking, and writing; and a personal assistant to handle necessary tasks that aren't a good use of time for Tonya or me. These positions will involve regular collaboration and meetings in person, so applicants must be located in Ithaca, NY.

For more information about the positions, see our Jobs page.
