Couch Seattle is looking for a sales associate with an interest in design and excellent taste. Saturdays and Sundays are a must, Mondays and Fridays are optional. Couch is a fully custom shop that builds each sofa from the ground up to meet the client's unique needs. This means we need someone warm and communicative who can build trust and guide people through an extensive design process. Being able to visualize what a client is describing and give them constructive but gentle advice is key. Great verbal, written and visual communication skills are essential. With hundreds of styles and thousands of possible combinations you need to be able to learn quickly. Design, sales, or customer service experience will be crucial to success.
Sales will be the most important part of the job, but the position also has logistics and project management components. The environment is laid back and supportive for both clients and staff. Weekends are often fast paced, so the ability to multitask is a must. This is a great position for a budding freelance designer or someone who loves interior design and is looking to learn more.
Duties include, but are not limited to:
- Handling multiple clients at a time.
- Drawing basic floor plans.
- Designing room layouts with appropriately scaled furniture.
- Helping clients select styles and materials that coordinate with their existing decor and make sense with their lifestyle.
- Accurately calculating complex quotes.
- Writing detailed invoices.
- Project management.
- Working with suppliers and managing stock inventory.
Knowledge of basic photography Sketchup, Photoshop and/or Indesign is a plus. Compensation is $19/hr plus commission.
