Think museums are just for grandmas or nerds?

Then stop reading right now.

On the other hand, if you think museums are super rad -- and want to spread your love of these hallowed institutions while working from home -- I’ve found the job for you.

Well, several actually: Museum Hack, a startup offering “sassy” tours of museums around the country, is now hiring for three remote positions.

3 Work-From-Home Jobs with Museum Hack

For all of the jobs, you must have excellent communications skills, be based in the U.S. or Canada and able to work during Eastern time zone hours.

My favorite requirement, though? “Be fun and exciting without using too many exclamation marks!!!!!!!!!!!”

Here are the specific positions available…

1. Personal Assistant to the CEO

Want to support the founder and CEO of Museum Hack, Nick Gray (whom we profiled here)? You’ll help with managing email, scheduling, copywriting and other special projects.

You must be tech-savvy and detail-oriented, as well as have excellent writing and organizational skills. You’ll work 10-15 hours per week and earn $13-$16 per hour.

2. Marketing Associate

In this fast-paced role, you’ll assist with things like proposal writing, content creation, Facebook ad campaigns and “new marketing experiments.”

To demonstrate your marketing and web savvy, you should already have a website and active social media accounts.

You’ll work 2-6 hours per day during the week, as well as a few hours on the weekends, for a total of 10-25 hours weekly.

“If you consistently deliver great work,” the listing states, “we can eventually provide up to 30 hours of work per week.” The position pays $12-$15 per hour.

3. Sales Support Representative

This is a customer-facing role, so you’ll make sales and respond to customer questions via email, phone and chat. You must be flexible, efficient and proactive, with great phone skills.

Like the previous role, you’ll work several hours a day during the week, for a total of 10-30 hours -- “occasional weekend availability is a major plus.” You’ll earn $12-$16 per hour, with the opportunity for “performance-based rewards and incentives.”

You can apply for all of these positions online -- but if you’ll be in New York City soon, the website notes you’ll get bonus points by taking a Museum Hack tour at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and asking your guide about job opportunities afterwards.

Your Turn: Do you love museums? Will you apply for any of these positions?
