Who I'm Looking For


Do you love to assemble and create DIY and craft projects?

I might just have the perfect role for you!  

I am looking for an employee to help us at JenniferMaker as a "Design Elf" (aka "craft assembler").

This position focuses on assembling and creating rough cut DIY and craft videos and timestamping photos that will be edited and published on a variety of social media channels. The ideal candidate will be experienced with videography and crafting, as well as familiar with the JenniferMaker brand.

The person who is right for this position has experience making crafts and assembling them.

While perhaps not quite yet an expert, this person does have familiarity with the JenniferMaker blog, courses, and ebooks, and a basic understanding of crafting and making.

This position involves a combination of creativity, attention to detail, follow-through, and it has high expectations for meeting deadlines. Project management skills and experience are a plus.

Are you ready to be a Design Elf for the JenniferMaker brand?
