Comic Book Jobs: Who’s Hiring? Marvel Comics

Posted by Tom Mason Categories: Editorials, Marvel Comics,

Sub-MarinerMarvel Comics continues to make the hiring news with two new positions opening up. Since DC Comics hasn’t posted a new job listing in weeks, Marvel would seem to be the only major company that’s still located in Manhattan that’s in a hiring phase. Make of that what you will.

First up, the House of Ideas needs a Project Manager in Promotions that sounds like a lot of fun. You’ll get to “oversee and manage all aspects of a robust co-promotional program with worldwide partners including television, print media, premiums, digital and online content and promotional campaigns.”

Comic Book Jobs: Who’s Hiring? Marvel And Electronic Arts

SuperHero Squad HulkMarvel Studios is at it again. This is at least their third job listing in two weeks. Either people are leaving – which seems doubtful – or they’re growing, which given the number of movie and TV projects they have in development and production seems the more likely explanation.

Marvel Studios, the entertainment entity of Marvel Comics and part of the overall Disney Empire is looking for a Senior Accountant for their Manhattan Beach, CA office.

The successful employee will be “focusing on the corporate side of the business (as opposed to our one accountant who is dedicated to supporting productions) based in LA supporting NY based accounting efforts and LA based tracking and analytical efforts.” Whew!

Comic Book Jobs: Who’s Hiring? Marvel and Disney

Pirates Of The Caribbean ComicMarvel Studios out here on the West Coast must be the happening spot for new hires. This is the second job listing in a week or so, and I originally missed this one because it’s listed through Marvel Comics’ parent company, Disney.

Marvel Studios is looking for a VP in Communication and Distribution in Animation in Manhattan Beach, CA.

You’ll report to the Executive VP, Head of TV, so big props to you, Mr. Powerful. You’ll be working on the “development of objectives and strategic priorities for Marvel Animation and its individual programs in each market around the world.”

This sounds like it’s definitely a suit-and-tie, travel, Bluetooth and buzzword kind of job, so you’ll need not only the experience but the slanguage to back it up. You might even get a nice iPad out of the deal. And if any of you do get the job, let’s talk, because I need a new executive friend in animation.

At the other end of the world, though still part of the vast Disney empire, is Disney Worldwide Publishing which is looking for a “Global Editor.”

Marvel Comics 1With DC’s rumored-to-be impending move to the West Coast, they certainly aren’t in a hiring phase (they’ll be in a shedding phase). But the sole remaining big-time comic book company in New York still looks for people to join the Marvel Employment Universe.

First up, mighty Marvel is looking for a Royalty Analyst for their Finance and Licensing Department in New York. It’s a data-entry gig where you get to “collect and analyze detailed royalty reporting and forecasts.” You’ll also be checking over contracts and how they impact royalty reporting, and working with “worldwide licensee accounting maintenance.”

This is a great entry-level opp for someone just out of college in the past couple of years. And if you “possess a keen willingness to learn, analyze and desire to enhance the licensing business team of Marvel” you could find a new post-college home.

On the opposite coast, Marvel Studios is looking for a System Administrator in their Manhattan Beach offices.

First Look: Chris Hemsworth as the Muscular Thor

Chris Hemsworth as Thor

It takes a strong man to assume the title of Thor…and an even stronger man to wield that hammer. That is where comes in.

In this picture, the actor who recently played George Kirk in Star Trek - and will play the Jed Eckert character in the Red Dawn remake - shows off the forearms will get him through Thor (and ).

Despite a star-studded cast that includes Anthony Hopkins, Natalie Portman, Stellan Skarsgaard and Rene Russo - it appears Hemsworth will be more than able to hold his own.

Look for to hit theaters on May 6, 2011.

Odin is back at it again, looking for new people in non-editorial functions for their New York office.

First up: Customer Service Coordinator, which sounds much better than “Email Secretary,” but not as good as, say, “Digital Communications Coordinator.”

Your job here is to handle incoming emails and either answer them or route them to the correct departments, retrieve and send forgotten passwords to hapless Marvel.com subscribers, handle opt out requests, and issue reports based on the emails that you handle. There are a lot of other little tech-based things you’ll be doing, but if you’ve had some decent online experience, it’s probably nothing you can’t handle, right? Also, it puts you inside the Marvel office, and who knows what that can lead to.
