THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN WORKING WITH US.
Please note – if you apply for a job that is not posted as available below we are unlikely to respond to your application unless an opening becomes available in the future.
Are you looking for a new role where your input will play an important role in shaping a growing 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.
- 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 part-time or 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 are growing so things are constantly changing. We always want new problems and that means we are always learning. If you like to go to work everyday and get the same thing, you will not enjoy our company. We need every person on our team to be engaged, excited, and willing to jump in proactively at the first sign of a potential problem, and be able to laugh through the challenges (because guaranteed things will go wrong!).
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 (and always want to be better), Book Launchers just might be a cool place for you to work, grow and build a career.
The positions we are currently looking to fill include:
- Copy Editor
- Business Development and Partnerships (coming March/April 2020)
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. Honest Company, Google, YouTube, Samsung and dozens of innovative start ups and marketing companies surround our office.
Type of Employment
We want to work with the best people possible. Most of our roles start as a freelance position but we will bring folks on as employees when it makes sense for everyone involved. Corporate profitability is a priority for us, but a big part of making the company successful is finding and keeping the best talent. If you’re the best person for the job and a great fit for the team, we want to 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:
Book Launchers shares profits with all part-time and full-time employees. Not every month is profitable (we are growing and that means ups and downs), but when we are profitable we all share in that.
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 lifestyle. To reflect this, all full-time employees will have access to company benefits including premium level health and dental coverage.
Book Launchers also pays for your gym or health memebership to encourage you to get moving!
You’ll also start with two weeks paid vacation plus we’ll always shut the office down for the week between Christmas and New Years. Part-time and full-time employees get the holidays as paid time off. Part-time is not eligible for any other benefits.
All Team Members:
Work Where and When You Perform Your Best.
Our Los Angeles based office is in a very fun, vibrant and flexible space. But, our team chooses to avoid commuting and works 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 we can reach you and connect as a team, and our clients are happy, then you have the 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 client’s needs.
This is not about putting in 8 hours at your desk – it’s about results. Some time during the normal workday is mandatory, and we have daily company meetings that you must attend, but we care about results not hours. 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.

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:
