An office type setting is shown where one woman is standing and one is working on a computer.

Super good news, friends! We are hiring!

Over the last few years, Bjork and I have had the opportunity to build our little Skillful Cook team to include people besides just us, and guess what? It’s been awesome. And that’s putting it lightly. We love our team so very much. It's good to not work alone.

Here’s who we’ve currently got on our team:

  • Lindsay – me! hello again. I’m the blog content creator and voice of POY.
  • Bjork – my husband. ♡ He is chief tech consultant / business advisor / taste tester.
  • Jenna – our communications manager. She is email / brand communications / organizer of everything.
  • Alana – our video specialist. She does planning / filming / teaching others about food video.
  • Krista – our shoot assistant. The beautiful hands you see in our food videos? Hers.
  • Elizabeth – our communications intern. She's been doing everything from working on behind-the-scenes SEO to decorating our studio Christmas tree.
  • Alexa – Food Blogger Pro's community and event specialist. She helps to make the FBP ship sail smoothly. Editing the podcast, managing the forum, planning the content. She does it all!
  • Raquel – Food Blogger Pro's web developer & product manager . She heads up the development of the Food Blogger Pro website and also manages the product creation and support at WP Tasty.
  • Jasmine – Food Blogger Pro's affiliate program manager. She heads up the Food Blogger Pro Affiliate program and is also responsible for finding great deals & discounts for Food Blogger Pro members and designing graphics for the FBP blog.
  • Sage – mascot and master treat hog.

And now we are looking to add to the team again, this time to help manage social media across all our brands.

If the position listed below sounds like the right fit for you, SCORE! We want to hear from you! Please apply.

And if not, I'm asking a favor of you: will you share this job opportunity with your friends who are of the friendly, organized, social media loving variety? The ones that would love a job working yummy food on the internet? The ones who would just so totally thrive in a position like this?

    oh mannn. if i had (more than a semester of) social media experience (for a music artist) i would have loved to apply! but i’m not in the area, which means i wouldn’t get to hang out with sage, so that’s really the big negative here ;-P

    I have completed the application multiple times now and each time I get to the end and click the submit button, it loads……then says there is an error and erases all of my answers and content. Without my answers being saved I have had to go back through and rewrite my answers. With that said, I will complete the answers again and save a separate copy of all of the answers. Can you please let me know where I can send that just in case? Also, maybe my answers have already came through? Thanks in advance for your time and help!
