    Senior Digital Asset Librarian with 8 Years DAM Experience, Lisa Frank Inc:
    Sigh on the 8 years experience, but it's worth a shot if you have education combined with experience and a love of Ballerina bunnies, Blanca, Hollywood Bear, Angel Kitty (my fav - and also sad), and of course ~~Majesty~~

    Based in Tuscon, AZ, requires relocating. The listing says they're urgently hiring, but remote work is not an option. I'm sharing without prejudice or affiliation, just a really big fan of stickers and rainbows.

    Salary - $60,000 - $80,000 a year
    Job Type - Full-time
