What this really means is they're looking for a translator. They'll allow the higher paid, General Market team to earn four times as much and be in charge of all the main creative and strategy.

Then this person will be tacked on like an afterthought, paid a pocketful of change compared to the heavy hitters, and only get to translate their work from English into Spanish.

The "multicultural component" means that this team will create content or events mainly in English, but toss some brown skinned people into the existing versions, translate it from English to Spanish, and that's where the train stops.
