Attention kick-butt marketers: We’ve got a fun & exciting 43-year old company with a fantastic story to tell – are YOU the right person to tell it?? We’re looking for someone with a unique combination of business, tech, and artistic skills to shape our narrative as THE place to go for beautiful, authentic, and surprisingly inexpensive décor pieces for homes & offices. We sell art, furniture, lighting, coins & jewelry, vintage & retro décor, reclaimed architectural pieces, rugs, and lots more. Think Sotheby’s, but with a down-home friendly Texas feel. We’re a family company with lots of folks that have been with us for more than 20 years. But we’re keeping up with the fast changes in the retail space, using new tools to sell old things, including online video streaming and bidding, development of a mobile app, and text message notifications. But we’ve got so much more to do, and YOU can work with our fabulous team to take us to the next level: from an auction house leader in Texas, to a leader at the national level. We’ve got the platform, reputation, and great folks to do it – are you ready to take on the challenge?
