“The advertising market is rapidly evolving,” according to the career posting.
According to a recent work announcement from Time magazine, the 98-year-old publication is searching for a chief financial officer who is knowledgeable about blockchain and cryptocurrency.
According to the job description on LinkedIn, Time is looking for a chief financial officer with more than seven years of corporate leadership experience and “comfort with Bitcoin and cryptocurrencies.” The job will be located in the corporate offices of the magazine in New York City.
“The media industry is undergoing a rapid evolution,” says the listing. “TIME is seeking a Chief Financial Officer who can help guide its transformation.”
The responsibilities of the chief financial officer include researching economic trends and complying with local and global financial requirements. The winning applicant will purportedly replace outgoing chief financial officer Christopher Gaydos, who has been with the magazine since 2018.
The chief financial officer’s duties include researching economic patterns and adhering to local and global financial regulations. The successful candidate will reportedly take over for outgoing chief financial officer Christopher Gaydos, who has been with the magazine since 2018.
Time magazine is not the only publication that seems to be enticing potential blood by leveraging the success of the crypto room. Growth Tribe, an Amsterdam-based education technology company, has created work listings for a web designer and user interface teacher, as well as classified the nonfungible token on the Rarible marketplace. Candidates can continue to bid on the coin, but submissions are only approved via the firm’s website.
“Although the idea of a job ad as an NFT makes no sense from a ‘collectible’ point of view at this point… it makes total sense in trying to grab the attention of digital talent,” said Growth Tribe chief strategy officer David Arnoux.
Recently, the journal seems to be more supportive of blockchain. On Monday, Time revealed the sale of three nonfungible token digital art pieces inspired by some of its most influential covers. D. W. Pine, who illustrated one of the covers for Time, described NFTs as a “wild” and “lucrative” environment.
