This is a Full-time position in Los Angeles, CA posted March 29, 2021.

Tapas is the “YouTube for storytellers” — an open-publishing platform and home to a community of more than 58,000 creators. We’ve published over 89,000 stories to date. We specialize in publishing original stories in the form of serialized webcomics and novels. Tapas has 3.3 million monthly unique readers, who collectively spend more than 113 million minutes per month on Tapas. Stories on Tapas have been read over 7.7 billion times to date. About 70% of our audience is female millennials, primarily located in the US, and the Tapas app is one of the top-grossing comics apps on iOS and Android.
