You might be right for the job if…
You are passionate about the arts, and preferably craft, including knitting and crochet.
You have customer service experience.
You have excellent organisational skills and a proactive approach to problem solving.
You are technically proficient (knowledge of Excel, Adobe Creative Suite, and Shopify is a huge plus!)
You have excellent time management and the ability to keep to deadlines.
You are able to travel 3-5 times a year for events (when the public health situation allows).
We are a small, close team based in London and Austin, TX. We offer a fun, flexible, and friendly working environment. Our culture is casual, but also very hard-working, and we often help each other out outside of our specified roles. We have a commitment to running an ethical business and decisions are often made as a group. We offer a yarn stipend, bonuses when we can, team outings, travel opportunities to fun fibre events, and loads of our favourite jokes that we’ll be happy to catch you up on when you start!
Pom Pom was born in 2012 from the idea that there wasn’t a knitting or craft magazine that reflected our lived experiences or perspectives. Over the years we’ve made a concerted effort to make our pages and platforms as welcoming as possible. For every meeting, every decision, and every project we engage in, we ask ourselves ‘are we viewing this via a lens of equity and justice? Will this uplift, affirm, and inspire people who have been historically marginalised?’ Our aim is to always ask ourselves this question and ensure that Pom Pom is a safe and equitable space for all who choose to join us. We encourage people of all races, ethnicities, religions, abilities, sexualities, genders, and bodies to apply.
