IT/Web coordinator wanted (DC area)

I've had a chance to get to know the good folks over at the Small Enterprise Education and Promotion (SEEP) Network and I'm a big fan of their work and what they're trying to do to build capacity in microfinance development practitioners.

They've got an acute need for a good IT/Web person to help them get their infrastructure under control as they prepare to breathe new life into their web-based networks and communities.

For the full details of the DC-based opportunity (deadline for applications is end of May), download the job description from this page. The summary is below:
Since its founding in 1985, The SEEP Network has developed a significant membership base of microfinance and microenterprise development practitioners and has created a wealth of technical resources, tools and trainings that are widely recognized throughout the microfinance sector. SEEP enjoys a history of meeting the needs of practitioners through programs and services that allow for innovation through collaboration of key stakeholders. In 2006, membership was expanded to include international networks and organizations, setting the stage for a new set of challenges and opportunities such as the continued provision of quality services at greater distances, peer-to-peer learning involving multiple languages, increased requests for dynamic working groups located on different continents, and new designs for other activities, such as The SEEP Network Annual Conference. As it continues its internationalization and growth, SEEP is seeking an exceptional results-oriented and dynamic individual to join its team and contribute to its long-term success.

The Information Technology/Web Coordinator is responsible for software, hardware, and network support, training, and troubleshooting on a wide range of applications. S/he is also responsible for the organization, appearance and functionality of The SEEP Network’s external and internal websites.
Are you interested or maybe know someone who might be? please pass this along.
