Welcome!

So you want to work with Stahr Media? Here's what you might be able to help us with:

Jobs

At Stahr Media, we're laid-back, easygoing and genuinely fun people! We don't have a lot of rules and regulations because you're an adult, and if you've made it far enough through the process that we add you to our team, we're confident that you are responsible.

While we don’t offer the traditional benefits of paid time off, paid sick leave or insurance, you’ll find flexible hours, a relaxed work environment and a commitment to the important things in life: family and friends, mental and physical wellness, and community involvement.


Web Content Associate

Are you an aspiring web designer looking for a great learning opportunity in a fun environment?

Our Web Content Associate will use Adobe Dreamweaver and web browsers to make updates to client websites as needed. This includes updating text, images and assets at the client’s request. When new sites are ready to launch, you’ll review them using our launch checklist, and then create training materials for clients using CMS websites. Additionally, you will review and update websites annually to bring them up to current industry standards.

Between these jobs, you’ll make monthly platform, system, plugin and theme updates on Content Management System websites; register domain names and make DNS zone updates; install security certificates; purchase, create and install privacy policies; set up payment gateways; create Google Analytics and Search Console properties; and troubleshoot web errors; among other related tasks.

We serve a large number of clients, and you should be prepared to jump from project to project seamlessly. You may be dealing directly with clients, so you should take pride in providing excellent customer service. That same high-quality customer service is expected internally, as well, when you are dealing with company managers, other employees and independent contractors.

You should have at least a bit of knowledge about HTML and CSS, but we will train the right person. This is a part-time position with flexible hours.

A great sense of humor is required, and you should have a functioning cell phone and reliable transportation. You must be flexible and willing to grow with our company. We take pride in our work, and it is extremely important to us that you do, as well.

That's it. You survived the required reading assignment! Now, let's learn a little more about Stahr Media.

About

At Stahr Media, we do just about anything related to design & technology. If we can't do it ourselves, we definitely know a guy.

Owner Nathan and COO Janel have been designing for many years, starting with artwork throughout our school years. In 1999 we got married, our hearts already set on business ownership in the future. After working for "the man" for several years, in 2005 we launched a small newspaper featuring local entertainment and things to do around the area. The paper was around for about two years, but health & family issues caused us to hang it up. We continued doing freelance design work, and in December 2013 Stahr Design became an LLC. In 2017 we changed our name to Stahr Media LLC to better reflect the wide range of work we do.

Around Thanksgiving of 2018 we had to move our dining room table to our living room, and desks and team members quickly took over our dining room. So in the spring of 2019 we purchased our first commercial property in uptown Rock Falls. After lots of renovations to make it our own, we moved into our new space in November 2019, and we're so excited to keep growing!

While the majority of our projects are web and print design, we do so many other things, as well, and it seems like we get strange new requests all the time. That's probably why you're here. So welcome to the Stahr team! We look forward to growing together!

Time to Sign the Papers

We know, we know; we're a cool tech company and you're thinking you should just be able to sign and turn in everything online, but our attorney says we need your John Hancock on a real piece of paper. If you've been hired, catch up with Janel to take care of all your paperwork ASAP.
