Job Opportunities


PUBLISHING ASSISTANT

This is an entry-level position on the business side of the book business with the opportunity for advancement. We'll make you part of our team and give you real work from day one.

This is a great opportunity if you don't want to be just another cog in the wheel of some giant corporation and you like to think. We're a small company with a close-knit environment and a staff that cares and an almost academic environment.

As our Publishing Assistant your job will consist of a range of supporting, business-related tasks like:

  • Data entry and updates
  • Bookkeeping type things like order entry, invoicing, bill payment
  • Ordering and maintaining supplies
  • Drafting correspondence
  • Answering the phone (not a ton); customer service and support
  • Other supporting duties as assigned

This is not an editorial or writing position *but* you should be able to write and communicate clearly. (We are a publishing company after all.)

A college degree is required. You should have excellent communication skills and the ability to research and write clearly and think critically. You should be able to multitask effectively and know your way around software. You should not be afraid of numbers.

Send a resume and cover letter to jobs@nostarch.com.


MARKETING ASSISTANT

As our Marketing Assistant, you will:

  • Pitch to media and help build media lists
  • Follow up
  • Draft copy and marketing materials
  • Create a buzz on social media

You'll work closely with our editors and marketing team to increase the visibility of our books while building our brand, and you'll do real work from day one.

You should be enthusiastic, self-directed, organized, and flexible. Strong writing, research, communication, and computer skills are a must.

This is a full-time, entry-level position.

Please send a resume and cover letter to jobs@nostarch.com.

  • Design book covers and interiors including art selection/creation and typography
  • Design marketing collateral, including banners, flyers, T-shirts, and swag
  • Refine our online presence and extend our brand

You should have expert knowledge of graphic design both for print and the web. You should love typography and have excellent Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator skills.
