Are you looking for a new role where your input will play an important role in shaping the future of the company? Do you love solving problems and learning? Are you an avid reader?
If you’re answering yes to these questions, please keep reading! We might be looking for someone just like you.
We’re looking to add some key people to our team in 2017, and we’d love to hear from you if you:
- Have experience in the publishing industry, or have experience with self-publishing,
- Care about helping people make a difference and reach their goals,
- Are comfortable working with minimal supervision,
- Like to laugh, and
- Want to be a key part of building a unique customer focused business.
Whether you want to work freelance, or you’re looking for a full time job – we might have the perfect arrangement to suit you. Some preference will be given to people located in the Los Angeles area, but that’s not a requirement for most positions. The most important thing is that you care about our clients and can do a great job.
WARNING: This is not a stuffy office job. It’s also not a job where you’ll always have clear directions. We’re a new company. There’s a lot of figuring things out as we go. If you aren’t ok thinking on your feet, jumping in when you see a potential problem, and laughing through the challenges (because guaranteed things will go wrong!), this isn’t going to be a comfortable place for you to work – whether you’re a virtual freelancer or a full time employee in the office.
That said, if you’re looking for a fun challenge, want flexibility with when and where you work, and you’re really good at what you do, Book Launchers just might be a cool place for you to work, grow and build a career.
Specific positions that are open now include (click links for full job descriptions):

Graphics Designers Freelance
If you’re written killer book cover copy, book descriptions or marketing materials for authors, this is the perfect opportunity for you to lock in steady work while showing off your skills! Let us know what kind of work arrangement suits you, and if you’re the right person for the gig, we’d love to have you on the team.
What’s In It For You? Well … it does depend a bit on the role, but in general:
You can work from where you live … but we will give a slight preference to people located in the Los Angeles area of California. Our office is currently based in the fun and lively area of Playa Vista in the WeWork offices.
Type of Employment
Unless indicated, we are flexible. We want to work with the best people possible. If we’ve indicated we want freelance, but you really want full-time work, let us know. If you’re the best person for the job and a great fit for the team, we’ll make it work.
Salary & Benefits – for Employees
The salary will vary based on the role and your experience. Every full time employee can expect the following benefits:
Salary + Profit Sharing starting in 2018.
We’re just getting started so we’re investing heavily in the company in 2017, but we’re committed to compensating every single person on the team for their performance with profit sharing. Starting with our new fiscal year in 2018, 25% of the net profits will be allocated to profit sharing every quarter and divided among the team who was a part of the previous quarter’s success.
If you’re not healthy, you’re not going to be able to perform at your highest level. It’s not required that you be a fitness freak, but we love people who take their health seriously. Fulfilling work is only one part of what makes life great. Eating well, spending quality time with the people you love, and staying active are all important to a healthy and balanced life style. To reflect this, all full-time employees will have access to company benefits including premium level health and dental coverage as well as the opportunity to have your gym, Yoga, CrossFit or other fitness membership covered (up to $200).
You’ll also start with two weeks paid vacation and the option to take two more weeks unpaid … plus we’ll always shut the office down for the week between Christmas and New Years.
All Team Members:
Work Where and When You Perform Your Best.
Our office is in a very fun, vibrant and flexible space. We can add space as the team grows, rent space if we want to meet up as a team, or keep the space small if most of the team wants to avoid commuting and work from home. The only thing that matters to us is that our clients are receiving the absolute best care and you are getting your job done.
You know how you work best, and we’ll look to you to tell us what will work for you. As long as you are putting in some hours during the regular business day, we know when we can reach you and connect as a team, and our clients are happy, then you have freedom to control your schedule.
This doesn’t mean you won’t have to work hard – there is a lot of work to be done every day and the pace will sometimes be pretty intense to meet our clients needs. It just means you have a lot of control and say over when and where you do that work.
If you want to take a family trip and not use your vacation time, you may have the option to work while you travel. As long as the clients are happy, your team can reach you when needed and your work is getting done, we are flexible with where and when the work gets done.
This is not about putting in 8 hours at your desk – it’s about results. Remember – the more productive you are and the happier our clients are, the more profits we’ll all have to share at the end of the day.
The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your dreams. ~ Oprah Winfrey
We help our clients reach goals to help them live the life of their dreams and we want to help you live the life of your dreams too. If you like how all of this sounds and are ready to work hard to make a big impact, apply below:
