Ok, it's not just RCRD LBL that's expanding, Inhabitat (which isn't just the biggest green design blog, it's also one of the biggest green blogs, period) is growing like crazy and is looking to hire a lead blogger. Here's the description:

Inhabitat is looking for a blogger to lead daily editorial coverage at the site. You'll need to have a good grasp on the latest developments in green design, architecture, and technology and be able to write about them with clarity, concision, and wit. Being able to work independently and source your own ideas for posts is critical (familiarity with an RSS reader is a must). Photoshop skills are optional, but a big plus (and you'll need to at least be able to do some basic photo editing). You'll be able to work from anywhere, but New York candidates will be given priority, and whatever your location you'll need to be available and working regular business hours (we collaborate primarily over IM). In exchange you'll receive competitive compensation, an opportunity to become a leading voice in the world of green design, as well as a chance to work with a team of dedicated people who share your passion.

To apply send an email to inhabitat at gmail . com with a resume, some background about who you are, why you're interested in the job, and at least two or three writing samples (links are fine).


Moby on RCRD LBL

by Peter Rojas

So a few years ago I used to live in the apartment building above Teany, this cafe that Moby owned on Rivington Street here in New York. I didn't actually know Moby really at all -- the only time we ever talked was during a game of Scrabble where we completely schooled me -- and I definitely never thought in a million years that I'd ever have anything to do with helping him put music out. That's why I'm especially excited to announce that we're working with Moby on the release of an exclusive DJ mix he's put together of tracks from his forthcoming album, Last Night.

It's a huge deal for us to have an artist as massive as Moby embracing what we're about, and he's just the first in a series of higher-profile artists that we'll be working with this year. Go download the track here!

RCRD LBL is hiring

by Peter Rojas


It's true, I've been a little light on the updates here, but I have a decent excuse: RCRD LBL is keeping me busy. So busy, in fact, that we've decided it's time to expand the team, which means we now have a position we're looking to fill. The official description is pasted below: RCRD LBL, a new ad-supported online record label based in New York City, is on the hunt for an Operations Manager.

We're looking for someone super-organized and hardworking, who doesn't need to be micromanaged and can take the job and run with it. We're a startup, which means that you'll need to be able to deal with a very fluid environment -- there will be a lot of work, but you definitely won't be doing the same thing every day. There are the usual perks to being in the music industry, but we'd rather find someone who is more excited about changing the game than getting backstage passes.

Responsibilities include:

  • Helping manage partner label relations and business development
  • Assisting with content acquisition and management
  • Advertising and sponsorship support
  • Events and marketing coordination

It's a great job for someone smart and talented who is looking for a chance to break into the online music world. Experience with online advertising is a plus, but not necessary. Please send resume, cover letter, and salary requirements to peter@rcrdlbl.com.


Help me sell my stuff on eBay

by Peter Rojas


This is sort of an odd request, but I'm looking for someone in NYC to help me sell stuff on eBay. I've been putting this off forever, and now I've got way too much crap squirreled away in this tiny 600 sq. ft. apartment for me to ever get around to dealing with it alone. I figured the ideal solution would be to find someone to list everything on eBay and then deal with shipping it all off, and either pay them by the hour or by offering a commission on all the sales. My contact info is on the sidebar if you or someone you know is at all interested. It's easy money for someone with some spare time.
