Probably qualified for half of it, but don't know enough about publishing. (Plus I prefer the East Coast and can already see retirement on the horizon.) Hopefully someone jumps on it.

Hi Donna - well that's opening the door for someone. Yes ... good luck to both the company and the lucky applicant - cheers Hilary

Could do a few, but yeah, better off for someone who can do it all.

Thanks for sharing this!

I could probably learn about these things, but I'm sure there are far more qualified people out there. I wouldn't want to relocate to San Francisco for anything short of a multi-million dollar a year pay. Yeah, like that's gonna happen.

I'm not at all qualified, but I can think of a friend or two who is. I'll forward the link.

Sounds like a big job. I don't have the DreamWeaver piece, but I've done everything else at one company or another.

Oh how fun. I hope this is a dream job for someone out there. So nice of you to broadcast it for your readership. I'm sure a plucky-eyed young person with these skills would just love to move to the Bay area and live the life.
