Weddings Associate

Charlottesville, VA or Remote

Novela is reimagining and reinventing the wedding planning process for the modern couple.

We’re looking for a Weddings Associate to help us find, select, organize and curate beautiful wedding content for our site.

About the role

As a Weddings Associate, you’ll …

  • Research wedding photographers and wedding planners in specific markets to learn about who the top performers are and then solicit real wedding submissions from them.
  • Interact with photographers and planners and support them throughout the submission process.
  • Cultivate vendor relationships with appropriate photographers that qualify to be represented on our platform.
  • Curate beautiful real weddings and be responsible for editorial curation, reporting to the Senior Photo Editor.
  • Ensure all of Novela's real weddings meet our high standards for quality, diversity, and integrity.
  • Support the curation and editing of photo content on behalf of Novela's vendor listings and other site and marketing content.

That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Novela, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly.

About you

You’ll thrive as a Weddings Associate if you:

  • Are highly organized and have strong time management skills.
  • Enjoy interacting with people and building long-term relationships and supporting the work of small business owners.
  • Have experience working with various technology platforms such as CRMs, databases, marketing automation platforms, calendar tools, customer service apps, and similar tools.
  • Are able to be results-oriented and keep up with an active to-do list and a fast-paced work environment.
  • Have a creative eye and a fine arts training and background.
  • Have excellent aesthetic taste and sensibilities.
  • Have a growth mindset, a willingness to own problems, comfort with ambiguity, and a healthy balance of humility and confidence.
  • Thrive working in a startup environment with a distributed workforce all over the world.
  • Bonus: Have a keen interest in the wedding industry as well as experience working with small business owners in a business development capacity.

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still seriously consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the role’s requirements.
