Kramerbooks is an iconic, independent bookstore known for its carefully curated selection of books - whether it's a high-profile newsworthy release, travel guide, banned book, or a more obscure title, we probably have it in store (or we can order it!). We're the kind of place where you can find first-timers delighting in their find, long-time regulars browsing the stacks, and events ranging from political correspondent panels to paint and sips and comedy nights. Combined with our full-service cafe and bar, Kramers is a popular destination for a wonderfully eclectic group of guests.

We're looking for someone with extensive experience in an independent bookstore environment to join our leadership team as an assistant manager. In this role, which reports to our general manager, you'll be responsible for providing leadership on the bookstore floor. You'll be responsible for supervising booksellers, ensuring we provide consistently exceptional customer service, driving sales, and putting on memorable events. You'll participate in receiving, returns, and coaching and developing team members. In addition, you'll have a portfolio that could be anything from scheduling and gift cards, to merchandise sidelines and storytime for children!

Ideally, you'll have extensive experience in bookstores, including inventory management. Experience with IBID is greatly preferred. You'll need to be adept at providing extraordinary customer service, and be strong at driving sales. Deep knowledge in 1-2 genres would be fantastic. It's okay if you're a little independent and a little quirky - so are we, you'll fit right in!

In addition to a strong vision for the Kramers brand (which includes growth opportunities for high-performing team members), we offer competitive pay and a progressive and expanding range of benefits including paid time off, medical, dental, vision, 401k and more!
