About Literati

Based in the Bohemian Cowboy capital of the world, Austin, TX, Literati is a new kind of bookseller. We’re focused on solving the specific challenges parents face when finding the best books for their children. We work with top educators and librarians and pour thousands of hours into obsessively researching the best children’s books from around the world. Every month is a brand new production. A new theme, with new original artwork, new extras, and a brand new set of books. Everything is returnable, we stand by our selections. Our mission is simple: to make parents and children love reading time, every day, by building a vibrant product and community that sparks imagination into life, builds intellectual curiosity, and encourages audacious imagination.

You’ll work cross-functionally to ensure revenue is being captured quickly and accurately, and work within the department to close the books quickly. Due to the fast-paced and high growth nature of the company, the candidate must be detail oriented and have the ability to operate independently and effectively in a dynamic environment.
