Oliver + S is hiring!

Joelle and Jen have had such success in hiring via the Purl Bee, we thought we'd give it a try as well. And we do need more hands at Oliver + S! If you live in the NYC area, here are some details:

The job:

Part-time work (15 to 20 hours per week to start), with flexible hours and lots of growth potential.

Responsibilities include:

Assist with answering the phone and responding to email inqueries.

Pack and ship customer orders. This task includes entering and processing orders as well as a daily trip to the post office or UPS to drop off packages.

Manage our trunk shows. This includes helping to select fabrics for shows, managing samplemakers, staying in touch with our wholesale customers to schedule trunk shows, and shipping and tracking the shows.

We've got lots of other exciting projects in development, so there will be opportunities for creative input in addition to the administrative part of the job.

Work hard and have fun. It's the East Village, and we're crafty types!

We'd love to hear from you. Please send your inquiries and resumes to


  1. Oh if there were ever a time I would wish to live in NYC it is now. What a great opportunity and a super job! Who ever you hire will be so lucky!

  2. Arghh! I wish I lived closer to the city. I guess a 3 hour commute each way is a little much! Good luck finding someone & congrats to the lucky person that gets this job.
