My company, a marketplace for local classes, is seeking very reliable photo editor who is a visual person with color sensitivity for ongoing work. We have a large amount of existing class photos that need to be revamped and are constantly in need of new photos, so we are looking for someone who can work full time.
Outline of Responsibilities
Hired employees will be responsible for supporting and maintain the company’s visual look by appropriately collecting and editing photos. He or she will be trained on how to use our system to identify classes and upload photos, and they will be trained to follow the established photo editing workflow. They’ll be given a list of school websites to visit and retrieve photos from, and they must select the best-matched photo for each school’s individual classes, edit and upload them into our system. In the first part of the project, the hired employee will be reviewing existing class photos to identify and switch out photos that do not meet the standards.
We will try our best to hire employees who can work with us for at least 40 hours per week – this means that we largely prefer employees that do not have other jobs (either online or offline). Those who wish to work longer are of course encouraged to do so – the more hours you put in, the more money you make, and the more we will value and reward you as an employee. Ideal candidates will stay with us for at least a year, if not longer.
