Hours are flexible though need to work with our Shop Manager’s schedule. Position will include some nights and weekends. Some of the work can be done remotely.

If you’re curious and caring about living mindfully, hate plastic, would rather bike or walk or bus than drive, want to work (and play) in an inspired (chaotic), entrepreneurial environment in our beautiful, eco downtown Boulder HQ, send us your résumé, a few references and a brief cover letter explaining why you’d be a good fit. Flakes need not apply. Commitment minimum 1.5 years, ideally much longer, with the understanding that the role and pay can grow.

Editor & Social Media: If you have a passion for words, an incoherent hatred for typos, meticulous organizational skills and follow-through, comfortable with deadlines, have excellent written communication skills, you might be a fit in our editorial department. Our editors work closely with writers to craft personal articles and work cheerfully to engage our social media readers through sharing across a variety of social channels.
