Finance & Operations Coordinator

GrubStreet seeks a full time Finance & Operations Coordinator to manage the regular operations of GrubStreet’s headquarters, including financial support, office management, intern program management, and customer service.

Our ideal candidate doesn't have to be a finance whiz (yet!) but is someone who has both a passion for GrubStreet’s mission and is eager to learn the ins and outs of nonprofit operations. We want someone who is highly organized, has laser-sharp attention to detail, and maybe even finds themselves building spreadsheets for fun to organize their reading lists or vacation plans. This person should thrive on solving operational problems, mentoring interns, supporting our staff, and helping students access all Grub has to offer. We encourage POC, LGBTQ, people with disabilities, and other communities historically underrepresented in arts administration spaces to apply. The literary world is going to look the same unless we change it, so come on and send us your application!
