Quickflix seeks marketing minions

Quickflix job adIf there’s one company that 2015 hasn’t been good to it is Aussie streaming player Quickflix, which has been stuck in an indefinite trading halt since August 31 with its share price at just $0.001.

With the trading halt ongoing, despite a recent restructure which saw it slash 20 per cent of its workforce, Dr Mumbo was surprised to see a very honest job ad (perhaps too honest) advertising for a digital marketing executive, and another for a communications manager who will be in charge of the brand guidelines.

The successful applicant will report to the head of marketing and will be “working closely with the remainder of the marketing team” – however many people that is.

Interestingly the Quickflix job ads are surrounded by images of the Minions – the little yellow sidekicks responsible for building the weird and wonderful contraptions in the Despicable Me movies.

Perhaps a sign of the kind of far-fetched task the new recruits will be expected to undertake?

After all who wouldn’t want “a chance to work in a very hot space (molten is more like it)”.
