Comic Book Jobs: TokyoPop

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, TokyoPop,

DomoIf you love the manga, and the internets and the Facebook/Twitter/Linked Inosphere, then you’ll be pleased to hear that TokyoPop, the leading manga publisher in Los Angeles, is currently hiring for a new position.

They’re shopping for a Director of Digital Business who can “utilize the opportunities available on the tokyopop.com website, online, mobile, and other digital platforms to seize the opportunities available for TokyoPop by building and expanding the community, content and commerce digital businesses, with a focus on e-book, social gaming, virtual goods and emerging technology-based opportunities.” In other words, take what we got and please turn it into cash. (The posting uses “monetize” three different times so you know they’re getting serious about this whole internet thing.)

You’ll be reporting directly to the CEO as you “lead and manage the transition from print to digital publishing, on all relevant and emerging platforms.”
At best, you’ll need a Bachelor’s Degree, “Gaming, Web-based Entertainment, and/or Manga/Anime experience,” and 5+ years digital business experience. If you have a Master’s Degree or its equivalent they’ll love you more.

Good luck, job seekers!
