A few weeks ago, I was in Montreal and met with Ben Yoskovitz, the CEO of Standout Jobs. He’s a great guy to chat with, and he’s built a product that I think is fantastic – a hosted Career site solution for companies to use in their online recruiting. Ben recently tweeted on Twitter about a company called Groove Commerce that is a Standout Jobs customer, and apparently an all around awesome place to work. They’re hiring, so we checked them out. We liked what we saw (how could we not like their online Career presence when they use Standout Jobs?), so now we’re going to tell you a little bit about Groove Commerce. By the way, if you’re interested in How I Used Twitter to Get Meetings with 3 CEOs and a VP of Recruiting in 2 Weeks check out my guest blog post on The Talent Buzz. If the post gets enough visitors, I’ll win an iPod Touch, which I promise to give away in some sort of contest to a One Day, One Job reader.
Transitioning to eCommerce can be tough for many business owners. Although the basic premises behind marketing and sales remain the same in all arenas, the implementation of those concepts is completely different online. Groove Commerce helps business with the implementation. They offer services such as Site Design and Development, Search Engine Optimization, Pay-Per-Click Advertising Management, Shopping Feed Optimization, and Web Analytics Consulting that help eCommerce companies achieve their goal of making sales online.
If you’re dying to get into the field of e-commerce and online marketing, or you just love building great websites, Groove Commerce might be a great place for you to start working after you graduate. They only appear to have 6 employees right now, but they’re looking to add 3 more team members (and an intern). Groove Commerce is looking to hire a Front End Developer, a Rockstar Web Designer, and an Asp.Net Developer. All of these jobs appear to be perfect for new grads who have the necessary technical skills. The Asp.Net position offers the opportunity to start part-time for a Junior/Senior/Grad Student who can work 20 hours per week. We’re not sure if they’d consider this for the other positions, but it might be worth asking.
Like I said in the first paragraph, Groove Commerce’s Jobs site is powered by Standout Jobs, and it offers nearly everything that you could want from a company’s Careers site. There are job listings, team bios, links to blog posts, lists of perks, an easy way to apply for jobs online, and a lot more. Best of all, it looks great and is easy to navigate. If you want to work somewhere where nerf guns and Rock Band are an every day part of office life, and Baltimore, MD is a place that you wouldn’t mind living, an entry-level job with Groove Commerce could be the start of something great for you.
