Jobs at O'Reilly Media
Founder and CEO
Tim O’Reilly has a history of convening conversations that reshape the computer industry. If you’ve heard the term “open source software” or “web 2.0” or “the Maker movement” or “government as a platform” or “the WTF economy,” he’s had a hand in framing each of those big ideas. He is the founder, CEO, and Chairman of O’Reilly Media, and a partner at early stage venture firm O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures (OATV). He is also on the boards of Maker Media (which was spun out from O’Reilly Media in 2012), Code for America, PeerJ, Civis Analytics, and PopVox. His book, WTF: What’s the Future and Why It’s Up to Us, was released by Harper Collins in October 2017.
Laura Baldwin started with O’Reilly Media in October 2001 as Chief Financial Officer and added Chief Operating Officer to her responsibilities in October 2004. She became O’Reilly’s first President in March 2011 and is currently responsible for O’Reilly’s worldwide businesses. Prior to O’Reilly, she was a consultant to the publishing industry through BMR Associates and managed several large consulting engagements across all genres of publishing and media. Laura’s media career started at Chronicle Books, the publisher of popular culture, art, and children’s books as well as gift products, where she served as CFO for 10 years, establishing Chronicle’s successful distribution business and helping launch Chronicle’s Gift Business. It was the diversity of Chronicle Publishing’s media properties including TV stations and newspapers where Laura developed her love of the media business. Laura has worked in banking, as well as in corporate governance, holding positions in worldwide cash management and corporate finance. Laura attributes much of her success to her all-girls high school where she was taught leadership was available to anyone who demonstrated initiative and drive regardless of their gender. She tries to bring that diversity of thinking to O’Reilly where she helped create a diversity scholarship program and believes in an inclusive and open workforce.
