Webshop writer/sales assistant

Moth is a small boutique specializing in Japanese and Nordic housewares and garments produced by artists and designers from both regions. We are seeking someone to join our small team in a hybrid position involving design, writing and sales on a part time basis. Background knowledge in Japan, the Nordic countries, and art/design preferred.

The design work will mostly involve putting together a weekly newsletter featuring new arrivals or restocks for the week. There will also be occasional photo retouching work (lightening and reformatting images for the most part). Proficiency in Photoshop is therefore required but editing workflow will generally be shared with other employees. The employee will need to bring their own laptop with access to industry standard editing software.

In addition, the employee will work alongside others to upload products to the rapidly growing website. This involves writing about various brands and items, including detailed information about each item's material, dimensions, care, and other relevant information regarding cut and fit. Familiarity with fashion and design preferred but not required. Strong writing and editing skills required. Please refer to www.mothchicago.com for examples of both images and writing; new employee will need to match current images in terms of scale and style, and match writing in terms of tone.

Sales experience preferred but not required; will train on the job.

Part time hours (around 15/week) with some flexibility. Start date in September. Please be in touch with a brief cover letter, resume, and samples of work/link to website. Wage commensurate with experience.
