SEATTLE, WA: Part-time Bookseller, Ada’s Technical Books. We are an established, indie bookstore, cafe, and coffee shop that focuses on all things tech and science. Our store sits in Capitol Hill off of 15th Ave E and is home to the kinds of books, gifts, workshops and events that beckon to the geek in all of us. We believe in never-ending collaboration, learning, and evolving.

We are looking for an experienced bookseller to join our team on a part-time basis. Our ideal is someone who has a passion for reading and is a bit of a geek. This is a key holder position, so experience opening and closing a retail shop is a must. You must also be able to work an 8 hour shift and lift/carry 40-60 lbs book boxes. Successful candidates for this position will have the ability to work independently, have some understanding of retail science, and be able to work as a team or alone.

This position will be part-time (12-30 hours/week) and could include at least one weekend shift. We offer all employees paid vacation in addition to sick leave and pre-tax deductions for transportation and health care. After two months, for employees working over 32 hours a week, we offer subsidized healthcare and transportation benefits.

We strive to take care of our community, whether that be shift coverage, emergency financial assistance or a 10 minute break to blow off some steam. We expect you to bring the same level of care, respect and effort to our team.

We’d like to encourage People of Color, Women and LGBTQIA+ folx to apply!
