New job at NexTag

On November 1 I will start my new job at NexTag, a shopping comparison search engine in San Mateo. I will be a product manager in charge of creating a developer and affiliate network to create a better community around the site and its offerings. I worked for one of NexTag’s competitors — PriceGrabber.com — in the early stages of product search so I know the industry well. My weblog did not help me win the job, but my experience in the online community and developer space will no doubt be utilized in my new position.

I am excited to be back in the search space with the opportunity to connect users to a large database of product offerings through the use of web services.

    Hi Niall,

    Stumble upon your website when I googled on nextag. I have been looking at the Marketing Associate/Analyst position offered at nextag and is thinking about applying for it once I update my resume. Do you think you may offer me some insight on nextag as a company, such as the corporate culture, the skill and personality they stress? Just a little about myself, I am expected to be a certified CPA in about 3 months, I have been working as an auditor for pass 2 years. I am looking to make a career switch into the internet community more specifically in internet marketing. Oh I also have my own business importing poker chip sets! Want a set? : )
