Welcome to Media Jobs: Companies & People

The Career Intelligence™ Authority

Celebrities are doing it for themselves. Or not.

Mariah has her chewing gum holder and J-Lo has an interior designer as part of her enrourage. Celebrities are known for not doing much for themselves and now they can have their social media managed for them by startup theAudience. If you’re in the market for media jobs, this is one company that’s going to offer media and tech jobs, and then some. Featuring a triumvirate of the tech world’s most respected entrepreneurs at the helm, new kid on the block theAudience aims to harness the power of social media and make it work for world-weary celebs who need to grow their fanbase and manage their social media output. However the company’s beginnings have been shrouded in mystery and they won’t even say who their clients are… What’s the Offer? Until recently little was known about theAudience other than it was founded by talent agent and brother of Chicago Mayor and former Obama Chief of Staff, Ari Emanuel – himself immortalized in TV drama Entourage – and co-founder of DigiSynd Oliver Luckett who, through the company, managed the social media accounts of some of Disney’s biggest properties, including Cinderella. Together the pair managed to lure in Napster and Facebook originator…

Chris Dixon’s Moving West. Should I Care?

The media has been full of stories regarding the move by Angel investor Chris Dixon, from his regular base in NYC, to Silicon Valley, but does it matter? For anyone looking for media jobs, it may be an indication of where the market’s going and that despite the best efforts of major cities to develop their own tech hubs; California is still where it’s at. Chris Dixon – the Man If you need a clue about where to put your hard-earned cash when it comes to tech startups, then Chris Dixon is the man to ask. Dixon is currently co-founder of Founder Collective and former CEO and founder of SiteAdvisor which was acquired by MacAffee, and Hunch, which was swallowed up by eBay. He’s a Harvard-educated serial investor who certainly seems to have an eye for a promising new venture having put money into Kickstarter, Skype, Dropbox, Foursquare, Knewton and Stripe, as well as others that are still in stealth mode. If he doesn’t know about it, then it’s probably not worth looking at. As well as an eye for potential success, Chris has also been a vocal supporter of New York’s tech scene. He’s heavily involved HackNY, a project…

Line: Japan’s Biggest Messaging App Set to Take On the US

Line is probably the biggest messaging app you’ve never heard of. The Japanese messaging tool which offers users the chance to send messages and make voice calls using 3G, 4G and Wi-fi, is the biggest in its home country and now it’s got its sights set on the mega markets of China and the US. Great news for anyone who’s looking to make lots of calls or who’s looking for media jobs… The company pulled in 50 million users in its native Japan in the first year – in comparison it took Facebook three years to achieve that figure. It took that figure and added 50 per cent just six months later. The 74 million liners it now boasts currently represent around one third of mobile users in Japan and around 86 per cent of those are active on a monthly basis. Forty per cent are on Line every day. Born of Adversity The birth of Line was difficult. Following the Japanese earthquake of March 2011, employees of NHN Japan – the company which also runs the search engine Naver – responded to the need to re-establish communication between residents as phone lines went down following the ‘quake. Employees who…

Marissa Mayer Snaps Up Stamped and a Raft of Celebrity Backers Can’t be Wrong

Why would Marissa Mayer buy Stamped only to eliminate its products? Stamped is an app startup that’s run by several of her old Google chums. Since taking over the reins at Yahoo back in July, speculation has been rife on what Mayer’s first purchase will be, and now all of those who have been waiting with baited breath for her to get the check book out can rest easy as the deed has finally been done. Those looking for media jobs will no doubt see opportunities increase in the clamour as startups shout to get their share of the Yahoo purse. Who or What is Stamped? Stamped is a mobile and web app that allows users to share and keep track of the things they like such as restaurants, books, shops, films and other apps. Users can access the recommendations of their friends and those of the so-called ‘tastemakers’ – key influencers that include top chef Mario Balati (who is an advisor to the company), and film critic Peter Travers. Instead of rating a book, restaurant or film with a star rating or feedback, you simply ‘stamp’ the item to show your approval. As a user grows their social connections,…

Techcrunch: Set to Disrupt NYC from 29 April – 1 May 2013

Disrupt is a place where any startup’s dreams can come true. It’s a platform for new businesses to highlight their products and maybe even snag themselves a shiny investor or two… Following the success of 2012’s final Techcrunch Hackathon and Disrupt which took place in San Francisco, the America’s foremost technology event will travel back to NYC and provide a platform for startups to hawk their wares and for those looking for media jobs the chance to meet potential employers. This year’s September event saw around 330 new businesses vying for the attentions of visitors, which included investors and incubators as well as journalists – all eager to make their prediction on what might be the next big thing. Bring out the Hackers The Disrupt event always kicks off with the Hackathon – a 24-hour chance for developers and hackers to show what they’re made of and come up with a fantastic concept. It’s a fun way to make a serious point – that great ideas are borne from collaboration, creativity and good old fashioned hard work. This year’s Hackathon again demonstrated the tenacity of the hackers, developers, designers and project managers, who, fuelled by donuts, beer and red bull;…
