Position title: Ornament Instructor & Content Creator
Job Overview: I’m looking for a creative and imaginative individual who will join our team to help bring our ornament ideas to life, and help me teach them to our thousands of monthly subscribers. This position is a custom-built role for a niche business, with various tasks which will change often. You will work with me (Staci Ann) to learn the tasks, our processes, and teaching methods, and my goal is that you will become a known and loved instructor in our Ornament Girl community.
Hours: at least 25-30 hours per week, with the hope that this will become a full-time position if you're a great fit for our team.
Location: In-person (here at our OG Headquarters in Central Florida) is ideal, but we’re completely willing to consider working with you remotely if you’re the perfect candidate.
In-person: Weekdays only, between the hours of 9-5.
Remote: Though I am flexible with days/hours, I would like to settle into a consistent rhythm and schedule.
Compensation: Hourly, and will be dependent on skill level and experience.
Benefits: I will provide you with any foam, fabrics, and embellishments needed for you to complete our specific projects.
What does our Ornament Instructor/Content Creator look like?
You are well-versed in no-sew ornament-making, are familiar with OG patterns and techniques, and have a background in crafting (especially relating to fabric).
You have photography and videography skills (and equipment, if you’ll be working remotely).
You are comfortable with the idea of teaching ornament-making on camera.
You are capable of describing and explaining your ideas with clear instruction and communication.
You have an artistic eye for color, pattern, and texture.
You are creative, driven, and humble.
You are a self-starter.
You respond well to feedback and have an ownership mentality.
The idea of working closely with others on creative projects sounds fun and not competitive.
- You CARE about your work and realize that even small details are extremely important.
- You strongly align with our company values (Non-negotiable. See below).
Who you are not:
Someone who only thrives in an extremely structured environment
Someone who always needs to be told what to do next
Someone who cares only about themselves and isn't aware of the team
Someone who hates dogs (we have adorable and very bratty dogs running around).
Your responsibilities will include:
Work with our design team to bring our ornament ideas and prototypes to completion: Making & testing prototypes, trying out fabrics, embellishments, etc.
Help to refine any processes, directions, and techniques. This includes mapping out additional processes needed, like line drawing and creating templates.
Photography of ornaments, products & supplies, tips & tricks, etc.
Pattern Instruction: Taking photos of pattern-making processes, and writing out complete, descriptive, and well-written instructions.
Record Club video tutorials each month, as well as other video tutorials, tips & tricks, etc.
- Meeting with me on a weekly basis to discuss your work, projects, and progress.
Why join our team:
Work with some pretty cool people, in an informal (though fast-paced) environment. Half of our team works remotely, and half of our team works here in our shop (our 2000-square-foot shop is located on our own property).
A creative outlet, with tons of room for new ideas and innovation.
Dependability is absolutely necessary (our team is small, so we will depend on you), but we are also very flexible.
The Hiring Process:
Apply: Fill out the application linked below. (Serious applicants only please!)
First Round: We’ll interview over Zoom to discuss the role, your experience with ornament-making, photography, and teaching, and for me to assess your compatibility with our design team and company philosophy.
Second Round: You'll send some photos and examples of your work, and I may possibly request that you send me an example of your work through the mail.
Third Round: We'll work together on a portion of one of our OG current projects, so we can make sure it's a good fit (you will be compensated for your time).
The Ornament Girl Philosophy:
At The Ornament Girl, we want to inspire people to do amazing things. We don’t just say that; We mean it and we do it every day. And oftentimes, working at The Ornament Girl will feel much like running your own small business. There will be long days and challenges, but the reward will be contributing to something that is larger than yourself. We want you to bring the hustle, grit, and passion to everything you do here. You will be expected to take high ownership and improve yourself constantly. You will be held accountable to our Core Values and will be expected to hold your teammates accountable as well. Our values are what unify us and allow us to make the impact that we do. They are crucial to our mission of becoming a household craft name and influence crafters all over the world.
These are the core values that every member of the OG Team lives by, and portrays in their work here.
