Director Of Digital! Sounds pretty serious, don't you think? We always feel like our readers offer the best potential candidate pool for any job, so here's the very official sounding job listing. See you at the office, future colleague! (And apologies if this job listing takes you too far behind the curtain. It's like when Bart Simpson visited the offices of MAD, remember? Only totally different.)
