Volunteer Position: Be a Miro Guide Moderator

August 12th, 2008 by Dean Jansen

The Miro Guide is growing super fast — we’re closing in on 5,000 channels! As new channels are added, we test them out to make sure they work properly. Usually a team of volunteers takes care of this stuff, but lately it has been exclusively handled by our friend Robb. He has done an awesome job as a channel moderator, but we’d like to find a few more people to distribute the work load.

The awesome part of this position is that once you’ve proven yourself to be a trustworthy part of the team, we can enable you to feature channels onto the front page. This is a very important function in the guide, so we don’t grant the ability lightly.

The channel moderator position requires a regular time commitment. We’ll be accepting 1-3 people, based on the strength of submissions. If you’re passionate about democratizing media, you should apply!

Application Guidelines

  1. You must be a reliable and responsible person who can get things done independently.
  2. You must have experience using Miro.
  3. You must have at least two hours per week to volunteer — not necessarily all in one block.
  4. Being a fan of the internet and web video is a big plus.
  5. Send an email introducing yourself: tell us what you do, why you’d make a great moderator, and share two of your favorite video RSS feeds or Miro channels (bonus if we’ve never heard of them and they rock).

To Apply: Please send applications via email to BOTH: dean [at] pculture.org and robbt [at] pculture.org
