Page Street Publishing Co., distributed by Macmillan, is looking for a bright and fast entry-level design assistant to join our growing design team. The right candidate will work across our non-fiction and young adult lists to enter editorial changes, create book dummies, generate catalog jpgs and pdfs, and package files.
Must be proficient in InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. A Photoshop expert is a big plus. Speed, accuracy, and an eye for detail is the main priority. We strongly encourage BIPOC and other self-identifying members of groups underrepresented in publishing to apply.
The salary is $33,000 annually, with yearly reviews. Advancement within the design department is possible. Benefits include 80% of healthcare policy coverage, a healthy personal time off policy, and work-from-home Wednesdays. This is not a remote position; candidates must be willing to work in our Salem office.
