Sponsored Post: Job Openings - Squarespace

There was a bit of drama earlier when I posted a free job opening for Zynga. It caused unfortunate and just plain wrong accusations. It also caused a number of requests for more free job posts, which I should have anticipated, but obviously I can't let this blog become cluttered with that kind of stuff. Earlier I tried a job board type service, but that never really worked out. So what to do? Someone suggested a sponsored post approach and I think that's a good compromise. It minimizes the noise, let's people know about work, and brings in a little revenue. It works like an advertisement. If you are interested please let me know. When we have any job openings there will be a sponsored post like this one, that you can easily ignore or pay attention to, depending on your situation.

I think this is a great idea. As an avid fan of this site, I think this is a great opportunity for technology groups to go out and elicit talent. So good luck!

As long as you keep the posts targeted I'm all for it.

When I read the title I went wow, squarespace! That seems like a cool job.
