Another topic worth mentioning. Don't even bother applying if you fit the following criteria:

  • Only one post (only time I could imagine there being an exception is if you are applying for a position like developer and already know the staff extremely well; ex: Relative or close friend of staff that is very knowledgeable.).
  • Know next to nothing about technology
  • Write in all caps
  • Want to be paid (why would we want you anyway? - exceptions are if you provide HAWT sex)

Next, we could use promoters. People who troll technology and security forums, IRC channels, etc., and can drop our name or cite specific articles on HTS relevant to questions people ask. Whatever you can do to LEGITIMATELY (ie. DO NOT spam) promote HTS would be appreciated.

We'd also like to bring HTS Radio back. If we can get an actual dedicated team of people to do shows, and someone or some people who can let their desktop stream radio stuff when no one is DJing, that would be an added plus. I'd like to get a whole collection of technology/security podcasts, as well as live shows (music is fine, but talk would be better), especially if we can start doing interviews and/or relevant topical discussions.

Finally, graphic designers. We need people who can do digital artwork, and do so very well. Ideally, we like the punkish theme (just look at the main HTS site, and you'll see what I mean), and would like someone who can do this sort of grunge/punk genre. We'd like to add more products to the HTS store, and update whatever imagery around the site that we can. If you feel you can improve something, prove it to us and we may just use your work.


I can help with these three things, and i resent my application to the proper email sorry for any inconvenience ill send some artwork if requested, and ive got loads of music on my computer and a mic so tell me what the plan is and ill see what i can do =]
WHERES MAH LAZOR!! i dont know. oh.. ok ^_^ weirdo.. >_>

First of all, I personally need server admins who are HEAVILY experienced in Asterisk/PBX/SIP. Someone who is capable and has done Asterisk module coding would be immediately considered. Provable experience is necessary. I do NOT want someone who is going to be learning as they work with me. I want someone who is far more capable than I am at this, and can prove such.

I was going to try to hide the obvious bump attempt, but then I remembered I was lazy.

Developers
I'm specifically looking for more developers. We simply don't have enough hands on keyboards bashing out code to get half of our many projects done. We're not looking for top notch over qualified individuals, we're looking for people like you! People who are curious, willing to learn and can show up to the party with an open mind. You don't have to even write code, you can help us by writing documentation, commenting code and review code as well. You will get full credit for all contributions and efforts to any of our many projects. All of your efforts will be subject to peer review and you will actively participate in peer review.

Working with us won't be all work, you'll also learn through working with us and teach others along the way. Education and learning hands on and through experimentation is a key principal to the hacker/CS community and we will do our best to respect this fine tradition. In return i hope to learn from you in the process of us all mentoring each other and pushing our limits. This is more then just writing code this is about growing as developers, hackers, and computer scientists. Apply NOW! Send your application directly to me if you have to and i'll do what i have to do to get you on the developer team (this open door offer doesn't apply to any other staff positions.)

Radio Staff
HTS Radio will be doing pilot runs in a few days in preparation for it's big debut. HTS Radio will be our very own community ran and driven internet radio station. We will need DJs to stream and double as online radio personalities in between the gaps. Also we will be hosting our very own podcast radio shows live and re-runs to fill in the gaps. We'll need people to man the air waves for us, to organize air time schedules, play some of them funky tunes and most importantly have a good time. HTS is not a job, it never has been and never will be. For more information contact Goatboy or me.
