Comic Book Jobs: Tokyopop (Digital)

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, TokyoPop,

Stellar SixPreviously, Tokyopop, the leading manga producer out of Los Angeles, was looking for a Director of Digital Business.

That must’ve gone pretty well, because now they’re looking for a Manager of Digital Business to report to that person.
You’ll be “responsible for building a successful digital operation under the guidance of the executive team.” You’ll be using all the cool tools the kids have - “Apple iOS, Android, Facebook, Twitter, ebook readers such as Kindle, game platforms such as PSP, DS and consoles, and the Internet” - and all the cool stuff that’s about to be invented.
All you have to do is help grow the digital business and turn it into Tokyopop’s private money factory.
Here are the two key job functions that lay it all out for you: (1) “Manage and monetize all tokyopop.com initiatives and development including content, commerce and community; and (2) “Oversee day-to-day operations of the company's Web Producer and outsourced and in-house resources.”
You’ll also have to be a smarty-pants predictor of future tech trends and where digital is going. But if you’re already using Facebook, Twitter, and the usual social suspects, I’m sure you’ve got an opinion about that already.
Good luck, job seekers.
