Opportunities at VentureBeat: Event planner, tech developer, writer and more

Folks, as VentureBeat expands into new territory, we’re looking for great people to join us on the way.

Recently, we took first steps to focus on certain topics, including digital media and clean tech, creating tabs for these. Now we’re looking to 1) create some focused events around those topic areas, and so are looking for an event planner. We’re also looking to 2) find writers who can help cover more areas, including mobile, and 3) hire a tech genius, who can help build out our web site and devise and implement other parts of an upcoming technology component of the site.
