You are ultimately a visual thinker who is (or wants to become more) tech savvy and who is curious about the world in a way that moves beyond traditional book publishing. Your workload will be split 50% between traditional book print production and 50% non-book print production skills—be they business development, design, editorial, event planning, marketing, social media, or video editing skills—which we intend to fully explore with you in ways that are most beneficial to the growth and success of both you and the company. Successful candidates must be insanely organized and able to pay a high level of attention to the most intricate details, while possessing strong negotiating skills for both pricing and schedules.

Access to (and preexisting relationships with) a pool of print production vendors is a must. Ultimately, you want to be an important member of this critically acclaimed book producer’s team that creates books for all of the major publishing companies, as well as a range of other projects for a wide variety of companies outside of the publishing industry.|
