DENVER, Aug. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Open Media Foundation, Denver's premiere media and technology nonprofit organization, is expanding, with five full-time, three part-time, and eight internship openings set to begin in September 2012. The positions that range from accounting, video production, web development and marketing are now posted at http://openmediafoundation.org/careers (also listed in this advisory). The Open Media Foundation is hosting an event to provide applicants an opportunity to meet with current staff, board and volunteers.
WHAT: Job Fair/Open House
WHERE: Open Media Foundation, 700 Kalamath Street, Denver, Colorado 80204
WHEN: Sept. 5, 2012, 5:30 - 7 p.m
WHO: The Open Media Foundation is a cutting-edge media and technology nonprofit dedicated to putting the power of the media into the hands of the people. The Foundation operates four departments working in support of that goal, including Public Access TV, Professional Web Development and Design, Professional Video Production Services, and Community Media and Technology Training.
Embracing diversity is a core value of the Open Media Foundation. We encourage individuals with diverse backgrounds, age, economic circumstance, ethnicity, gender expression, marital status, national origin, religion and sexual orientation to apply.
WHY: The Open Media Foundation has experienced consistent growth since our incorporation in 2004. While much of our growth has been sustained through hiring of interns and volunteers, we are now looking to hire and retain additional staff to support this positive trajectory. Just last month, the Open Media Foundation unveiled a cloud-based media service that could change the face of community media. After seven years and $700,000 contributed by the Open Media Foundation and other supporters, the open-source software was launched as both a paid monthly service, and free-of-charge to organizations wishing to implement and manage it themselves. Several of these new positions are directed at supporting this new service for Public Access, Educational, and Government media operations.
