Say goodbye to being a starving artist

Because we just found a way you can work for a creative and artsy company — from the comfort of your own home.

Museum Hack, a startup that runs quirky private museum tours, is hiring a sales support representative.

How to Get an Artsy Job With Museum Hack

As you can read in our interview with the founder, Museum Hack is turning the traditional museum tour on its head. It offers “highly interactive, subversive, fun, non-traditional” tours of museums in New York, Washington, D.C. and San Francisco.

Right now, it’s hiring a remote customer service representative whose duties will include answering questions and closing sales via phone and email. (No cold calling required, though!)

You must be a highly flexible perfectionist with excellent phone skills, “nearly perfect written English” and the ability to type 75 words per minute.

Previous experience with a CRM (Customer Relationship Manager) tool is also desired; if you’re familiar with one, be sure to mention it in your cover letter.

You’ll work two to six hours per day, for a total of 10-30 hours per week. You must be based in the U.S. or Canada and able to work flexible hours between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST, plus a few hours on weekends.

Not only does this sound like a fun gig with a cool and growing company, but it pays $12-$16 per hour, with occasional “performance-based rewards and incentives.”

It also sounds like you’ll have opportunities to advance your career.

“Most of our VAs stay with our company for years, and move up to do really exciting things with us,” states the job description.
