I am posting to ‘General’ because this is a part time position that might appeal to those not looking in ‘Jobs’.
Job: Discourse community manager
Compensation: $10,000/year, $2,500 paid quarterly as independent contractor, prorated to time worked.
Supervisor: Executive Director of the SGB is responsible for hiring/firing.
Responsibilities:The Stan forums (https://discourse.mc-stan.org/ https://discourse.mc-stan.org/) are where most new users encounter the Stan community for the first time. The majority of those interactions are read-only but the content and demeanor of the forums are very important for both first impressions and for continued interactions. The manager is responsible, potentially by delegation, for:
Scanning for inappropriate communications that violate our discourse guidelines
Developing and maintaining discourse guidelines.
Ensuring that questions get answered by answering the question themselves or seeking a relevant person to help.
Overall be a helpful voice on the forums.
Other responsibilities to be determined as the role matures.
I will wait until the Stan general meeting (Thursday Sept 12, 11am EDT) for the initial pool of applicants. The position will remain open until filled or withdrawn. The SGB will approve the candidate.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. Just an expression of interest is fine. I’ll follow up with what further information I need.
