We are building the world's largest platform for curated wall art, gathering the world's best poster artists in one place. We want to inspire art lovers and artists alike with art that is beautiful, meaningful and makes you feel. Now we are looking for an art director / art buyer, who will find the most extraordinary new and existing talents for making wall art and invite them to our art platform 1x. Your job is to research the latest trends in interior design and find the most suitable motifs right now for selling posters, canvas and wall murals. These art works will be licensed to our global network of resellers, the largest in the world, including all the major wall art brands.
First of all you need to have a great eye for excellent art and not just any art, but the kind of art that is popular for posters and wall murals among the general public. You must be able to set aside any personal preferences and instead focus on what is actually popular and will sell well to customers. This is something many people struggle with, so it's one of the most important aspects of this position.
When contacting promising artists you need to be very smooth and persuasive to make them feel good and positive about joining our platform. You need excellent communication skills and fluent English both written and spoken at the highest level. You will mainly invite artists using email, sending out big numbers of invitations every day. Communicating with excellent artists you have never been in touch with before inviting them to join our platform should be something that excites you.
You are also responsible for editing the metadata of the images we receive, with appropriate titles and keywords for easy searching and also order images into trendy collections.
For now your job is performed remotely and you will be part of a team which have several online meetings every week. You should enjoy working very independently from your home without losing focus. We will not be able to give you a substantial amount of guidance so we are looking for someone with experience, who enjoys a lot of personal freedom and responsibility, figuring out the best methods for doing your job by yourself.
