ABOUT THE COMPANY

CustomMade.com is a large global marketplace that connects buyers and makers of custom goods - jewelry, furniture, home decor, leatherwork. With funding from top tier venture capital firms - including Google Ventures, First Round Capital, and Atlas Ventures - CustomMade built a steadily growing marketplace, attracting 9 million visitors a year and providing a source of income for thousands of talented makers and artisans.

In 2015, five core members of the CustomMade team bought back the company with the goal of building on the continued, steady growth of the marketplace while identifying new opportunities to drive business value. The small team took over all operations and quickly made the company profitable. Having identified key growth opportunities in specific product lines, the team is now working to accelerate the growth of these business areas.

What the gig is:

Each day, a dozen items come in to our office from our various manufacturers.We have a well-established system for photographing these items before they are shipped to our customers. There are two aspects to this photography.

1) A standard set of shots that we use for sending to customers and for marketing purposes. We have a number of backgrounds and props available, but the photographer is responsible for designing the setup for each piece.

2) Experimenting with different angles/setups/etc. to expand our repertoire of content. There is guidance for things to try, but this is somewhat unstructured.

The overall length of time required to complete the work depends on how many items we receive, but typically it takes between 5 and 6 hours each day.

What we are looking for:

We are looking for someone who can come in to our office a few days each week to do this 5 - 6 hours of work.We are flexible about the time of day (within normal working hours), but earlier in the day would be ideal.The work cannot be batched... someone needs to come in to our office each day.

Requirements:

You should be organized, reliable, and thoughtful.You should have previous experience with photography, including post-processing. You should be able to come up to speed quickly, adhere to a system, and follow directions.At the same time, we are also looking for someone who can be creative in staging photography setups and experimenting with different shots. Once up to speed, you should be able to generate high-quality content independently. Ideally you would like to continue doing this for some meaningful length of time.

You will need to provide permission for us to conduct a comprehensive background check, including a criminal background check.

How to apply:

Send a message via the Craigslist messaging system.Explain briefly (no more than 5 sentences) in the body of the email why you meet the requirements articulated above.Attach to the email a resume in .PDF format, or provide a link to an online CV.Provide your full name, phone number, reply-to email address, and location at the bottom of the email.
