You’ll have hit the ball out the park if within the first 12 months:

• We have an art shop that is unrivaled when it comes to variety, quality, and individuality

• We’ve become the go-to shop for both customers and artists to know that they will find the very best art, and it will be presented in a way that benefits both parties

Some things you’ll be doing…

• Sourcing and negotiating with print on demand vendors for our website, and ensuring that we have a large assortment of high quality artists added to the platform each week

You’ll love it here if:

• Above all else you’re ambitious and want to make something amazing

• You’re interested in new, emerging brands especially in the art space

• You thrive on delivering large amounts of work and juggling multiple projects – we launch many artists a week so need to operate more like Buzzfeed than Vogue

• You have a growth mindset and understand the need to adapt to support business growth

• You work collaboratively – you’ll be working with many teams every day, so it’s essential that you understand different points of view, and are a team player

• You’re able to think of potential problems, and come up with workable solutions for implementation. We will be launching new initiatives, so need to expect the unexpected whenever possible

• An incredible learning experience in building and scaling a global consumer brand. You’ll be working as part of a team who have over 50 years combined experience starting, scaling and exiting consumer businesses (onefinestay, Fab.com, Monoqi, Zipcar, Zulily, Google, Tuenti, TicTail…)…
