Edit: we've hired someone. Thanks everyone who applied!
This forum has undergone huge growth recently:
This growth is exciting, but also brings new problems. We are no longer in a world where even the most dedicated EA's can keep up with everything that's written, and the large influx of new people will stretch our ability to create and share common knowledge. EA seems poised to influence the next generation of thinkers and leaders, and this site is a major way we communicate with each other, from top journalists to CEOs of billion-dollar companies.
The EA Forum team is considering:
- Introducing Reddit-style federated sub-forums, to better direct people to the content they find useful
- Diving deep into key user journeys, to understand where people bounce and how we can prevent that. For instance, trying to better understand the experience of a newcomer who gets sent a post by their group organizer for the first time.
- Improving recommendations and personalization such that newcomers don't bounce from confusion but old-timers don't bounce from boredom
This work requires both product management expertise and a deep understanding of the EA network. The intended role will be the 'product owner', prioritizing projects (like those listed above) and executing them.
The CEA Online team grew from three people last year, to 10 as of this writing, and is expected to be around 15 by the end of the year.
If you want to join a rapidly growing team of engineers, designers, and content creators, working on a product that users love, that has a big positive impact on the world, then we would love to hear from you.
