Rocky Nook is an independent publisher based in San Rafael, CA. Founded in 2006, our focus has been on publishing world-class books to help photographers master the art, craft, and technology of photography. We are proud to be the #1 U.S. publisher in the educational photography space. We have grown a lot over the last decade, and we have recently expanded our mission to include other creative topics, including graphic design, painting, sketching, typography, and more.

We are looking for someone to join us and help develop and expand our publishing program well beyond photography. We are looking for someone smart, curious, proactive, and fun to work with, who takes their job seriously but not too seriously. Someone who loves brainstorming and pursuing great book ideas, and who has a knack for matching them with talented authors to create beautiful books that truly help readers.

We are a close-knit team, and we believe in doing great work while maintaining a strong work-life balance. Being a small company, we know the value that each person can and must bring to the table. In short, we’re more interested in finding the right fit for our team than in finding someone who can check off every box below. That said, here are some of the main responsibilities the ideal candidate will have:
