Senior Director, Community

The salary range is great, if not really wide. My biggest concern is they're asking for 12+ years of experience in managing online communities, which could be fine if they count non-work experience.

Autodesk | $164,000-$265,000

Steph's Notes:

The salary range is great, if not really wide. My biggest concern is they're asking for 12+ years of experience in managing online communities, which could be fine if they count non-work experience.

However, if they're looking for professional community building in software or tech, communities of the kind they mean have only been around for maybe a decade (at most), so I'm not surprised that the job's been open as long as it has.

Lots of other Support and Success roles open at this company, although I've only looked at this one.

Job application is through Workday. My condolences.
