We are hiring!
Capricious is an arts foundation based in New York focused primarily on book publishing and an annual photo book award, with an emphasis on supporting intersectional, queer perspectives. Capricious seeks a part-time Distribution Associate to contribute to our daily operations starting September 2020. The main responsibilities of this position include strengthening relationships with wholesale clients, managing online sales, invoicing and inventory. The position will also be responsible for developing growth strategies for both marketing and sale of our publications — including social media integrations/promotions and digital brand strategy.
We are seeking a creative, organized person with interest in art books, photography or small press publishing at-large to join a dynamic, collaborative office within Capricious Foundation / Company Gallery. Flexibility and initiative are a must.
Capricious welcomes applications for internships throughout the year.
Be a part of the Capricious team and work first-hand with the production of magazines and books, as well as our roving curatorial projects. The internship will also involve maintaining and building relationships with bookstores and museums alike, and can include general office organization and archiving.
Applicants must have a background in art and/or photography and willingness to do entry-level intern work, while being provided with unique exposure to the inner-workings of a magazine. Ideal candidates are trustworthy recent grads with positive energy, keen organizational skills, and attention to detail. Proficiency with Mac applications and Adobe Creative Suite (particularly InDesign & Photoshop) and all social media outlets is desirable.
Internships come with a monthly stipend and in some situations school credit may be arranged. Interns should be able to commit 2 days per week, approximately 11am-5pm. To be considered for an internship, please submit a résumé and cover letter to Anika Sabin via firstname.lastname@example.org.
