ISO someone who loves listening to 70s and 80s tunes, sniffing candles and breathing in plants!

Candelaria is a candle boutique, art gallery, and maker's studio that is designed to incubate independent makers. We are located in Denver's Santa Fe Arts District.  We make our own candles in house, and the position of Production Assistant must serve in that capacity in helping prep wholesale orders, store inventory, online orders, and daily store activities. You will be directly involved in the actual production of candles.

The role of Production Assistant must also serve to interact with customers, ringing sales, possibly teaching classes, & answering queries regarding our products and art. A high attention to detail is a must. We also serve a large wholesale and online audience, so the role will also require you to assist in fulfilling and pack daily orders - sometimes in very large quantities.

 We are ultimately looking for someone who appreciates customer interactions, supporting independent makers, and an interest in hand-made is crucial.
