  • +FULL-TIME VISUAL CONTENT CREATOR & CUSTOMER ADVOCATE

    Love photography and graphic design, but looking for a full-time career position that doesn’t leave you isolated behind a screen?

    betsy & iya is hiring a full-time Visual Content Creator & Customer Advocate.

    This position is a balance of yin and yang, a blend of retail sales and marketing, a chance to let the connections you make on the sales floor fuel your creative visual expression back at your desk. Sound good? Read on, friend...

    Your time will be spent mainly on the following:
    • Working directly with customers on our sales floor, welcoming them in, offering friendly, approachable, spot-on recommendations when appropriate, and providing impeccable customer service. You’ll get to know our customers, truly. You’ll know their first names and what grade their kids are in. You’ll connect over your love for jewelry made by real people, but also about secret brunch spots and that great hike you went on last weekend. It’s physical. It’s emotional. It’s demanding. It’s rewarding.
    • Using that customer connection to guide our brand’s visual content. You’ll take all that work on the sales floor and let it guide your creative output. The person you just met and chatted with is the person who will be opening the email you’re building. You know exactly who will come by the store to compliment the window display you designed. You have faces and names to go with all of your creative work: product photography, lifestyle photography, graphic design, landing pages, email, and window displays. Creative work is more meaningful when you personally know your audience.

    You have:
    • Passion for jewelry. This means your interest and excitement for jewelry flows through you and cannot be contained. You love the way jewelry makes you feel. You know jewelry’s power to connect and amplify inner-beauty. You love sharing your passion for jewelry with others.
    • Visually creative superpowers. This means you have a portfolio to share or curated Instagram feed. You learned the Adobe Suite because your visual self-expression was simply incomplete without access to those tools.
    • Taste and design-sense along with the ability to articulate why you like what you like.

    Established in 2008, betsy & iya designs and makes a line of jewelry, which is sold online, around the country, and in our NW Portland brick & mortar flagship store.
