|Company Type:||Certified B Corporation|
|Industry:||Architectural & Design Services|
|Impact Area:||Quality of Life|
|Company Name:|| Carnegie Fabrics LLC|
|State / Province:||California (CA)|

Carnegie designs and manufactures a broad range of innovative textile and wallcovering solutions for the global Architectural / Design marketplace. Maintaining a strong sustainable responsibility, all our products are PVC free and many are third party environmentally certified contributing to LEED points. With a diverse product line ranging from luxury to performance, Carnegie has a textile solution for any interior.
Now we’re looking for a new team member who can bring energy and purpose to our growing company.
As our new sales assistant, you’ll become an important member of a three-person team that’s dedicated to supporting our outside sales staff in the Architectural / Design community. Working closely with our Office Manager, you’ll make sure that they have everything they need to close sales.
Most of the time this will involve making contacts, pulling sample requests and preparing and customizing presentation and marketing materials. You will also be in the field updating client libraries, preparing and setting up displays and helping set up for presentations. In addition, you’ll also be charged with managing our sample and marketing collateral inventory in the office, providing quotes/product information and researching potential projects.
Occasionally we have clients visit our office. If our representative is not available, you’ll be responsible for making them feel welcome, letting them know about all the amazing solutions and services we have to offer and bridging the relationship to one of the two outside sales representatives.
While stellar email communication skills are vital, you’ll also be working on the phone, updating information in Salesforce, managing our local social media presence, coordinating with our sales service team at Carnegie HQ in New York, checking up on incoming and placed orders, and answering customer inquiries. This is a fast paced job so a sense of urgency is important at all times.

At Carnegie, we’re serious about providing a great place to work, being responsible about our environmental impact and providing innovative and artistic products – that’s why we became a B Corporation. We know people love working here because they tell us and because they don’t leave.
