Reporting to the SVP Wholesale Business Development and Artist Relations, the Director of Business Development and Wholesale will help create large-scale retail distribution for Minted’s community of independent artists. Minted is the only company that brings independent designers and artists to the mass market in a scalable way. Our tech- and data-driven design crowdsourcing platform sources the freshest design from more than 13,000 independent artists from around the globe through open design competitions. Customers vote to tell us which designs and artwork to produce. Minted handles the manufacturing, marketing, distribution, and customer service on behalf of our artists, which ensures high, consistent quality and the ability to scale to serve some of the largest retailers in the world. We are focused on stationery, art, and home decor, but our design platform has the potential to expand into apparel and other design-driven categories. We offer our retail partners access to our artist community, our fresh designs, and our predictive consumer voting analytics, which helps retailers make better-informed bets on which designs to sell. Our current roster of national partners includes Target (where we sell greeting cards and other paper products), West Elm (where we sell wall art), Pottery Barn Kids (where we sell wall art and greeting cards), and PBteen (where we sell wall art). Stay tuned for several new exciting partnership announcements in the near future. You will play a central, early role in building our Wholesale business, which is experiencing explosive growth.
Minted is a design platform whose mission it is to bring the best in independent design to consumers everywhere. The company's art, stationery, and textiles products have reached over 40 million homes worldwide.
