Job Opening: Production Manager

Noot Group in Boise has an opening for a Production Manager.  From the job listing on Craigslist:

Noot Group is hiring a Production Manager.

This is you: You have a sense of humor, dedicated, competent and not afraid to ask questions. You don’t get bogged down in minutiae or by egos. And, when it comes to organizational skills, you rival the most tenured librarian. You like to work in a creatively driven environment where you can share your ideas. It would be silly for us to hire people without ideas because ideas are what our clients need. You’re brilliant, competitive, like to work hard and think we lifted the below out of your resume:

  • Unique ability to oversee a multitude of production tasks for a diverse range of media
  • Demonstrates a high degree of understanding and knowledge in new and traditional media development, advertising and marketing, including online, social and viral marketing
  • Able to lead and construct the best course for completing work
  • Identifies, coordinates and understands requirements for efficient production and finalization
  • Projects a high degree of confidence to both creative and account teams
  • Excellent resource for agency during client meetings

Full details about the position, including how to apply, can be found in the original job listing.

Job Opening – Designer

I have to say, it feels good to be able to write about someone hiring…

Noot Group in Boise has an opening for a Designer. Specifically, they’re looking for someone who has experience in graphic, interactive, and multimedia design. From the job listing:

Interactive Designer? Multimedia Designer? Graphic Designer? It’d be an injustice to peg you to just one title because your work kicks, regardless of the medium.

You know Adobe CS, Flash and Dreamweaver so well that you could tour the country giving seminars on all the short cuts. Your strength is collaborating with an Art Director to produce the best out of a concept with fresh, creative ideas and executions. You thrive on a high volume of work for a diverse list of clients in a creatively driven, fast-paced, deadline-oriented environment. You have 2+ years agency experience in digital and traditional media, obsessive organizational skills and will take initiative when needed.

Full details about this position are available via the job listing on Craigslist.
