Job Purpose: To take charge of Website administration and upkeep through the use of content management systems and other software.
Description: TAC is one of the most popular archaeology-related Websites, featuring video and audio streaming, a large body of content, and other functions. We are currently upgrading TAC through the use of Joomla, a commonly used content management system (CMS). Thus far, our office administrative staff have been covering this area, but now we need someone who can devote attention primarily to this activity. Our Website Administrator will be responsible for maintaining and updating the site. This is a chance to help accelerate the progress of a dynamic and growing nonprofit enterprise. You will be joining a dynamic and innovative team on a mission to create a unique media organization with worldwide influence. Your help here will have a direct impact on ALI's productivity and ability to pursue its public mission. And the experience you gain will be directly transferable to other technical positions you may seek in the future.
Key Responsibilities: Upkeep of our Website, troubleshooting, and technical and creative input on its content and functionality.
Background: Archaeological Legacy Institute is a tax-exempt nonprofit organization based in Eugene. Our streaming-media Website, The Archaeology Channel (www.archaeologychannel.org; TAC), has become the world’s most popular Website relating to archaeology and the human cultural heritage, with annual traffic of about 6.5 million page views. ALI also produces The Archaeology Channel International Film and Video Festival, an annual cultural event in downtown Eugene. We currently work out of a home office and are looking to move into commercial office space. ALI has numerous opportunities for unlimited growth as an Internet media and public outreach organization and needs to expand its volunteer work force in order to take advantage of these opportunities. Some of our volunteers may become our employees, depending upon their productivity and effectiveness.
Requirements: We prefer people who have interest and experience in CMS (especially Joomla) operation and management. The more experience in this area the better, of course. We will train you in the day-to-day tasks so that you can take them on yourself with confidence. Specifically, the ideal applicant will have experience in the following: Windows Server 2003, PHP, MySQL, CSS/HTML, Joomla, and osCommerce.
