To fit into our team, you need to have an open-minded view of the world and a genuine interest in our products. Working in a small organisation means that you will have to carry out a wide range of tasks – often beyond your immediate area of work – and our employees are flexible and pro-active in picking up work as needed. The Pepin Press values dedicated, self-motivated and resourceful employees and people with these qualities can gradually become involved in more aspects of our business.
In our bright and airy office in Amsterdam (in the pleasant neighbourhood Oud-West) we currently work with only 5 people; from here we coordinate all our activities. Worldwide we work with a pool of about thirty freelancers, both creative (drawing, design, photography, copy writing, etc) and commercial (sales, marketing). The logistic part of our operations (shipping, warehousing) has been outsourced to specialised companies in the U.S.A., the U.K., Germany and The Netherlands.
The Pepin Press has customers all over the world, including book and gift stores, as well as some of the world’s greatest museums’ stores. Our sales are equally divided between physical stores and online channels, and we are constantly looking for new markets and accounts. We communicate actively with our customers by phone and email, visit major accounts and exhibit at several trade fairs in Europe and the U.S.A.
International Account Management and Admin
We are looking for friendly, commercially-astute colleagues to help us service our growing client base of retailers worldwide.

If you feel that a job at The Pepin Press is suitable for you and you are sure you meet the general requirements, please send a short application letter in English stating your background and motivation, and include a full CV detailing your education and work experience by email.
