Rusticator is a seasonal high-end, home furnishings and interiors shop that is seeking a full-time, year round manager to strategically manage the store and design services program. Our parent company, interior design firm Keeler & Company, is based in Boston and operates a studio in Seal Harbor, Maine in conjunction with the shop.

During the off-season, the position will focus on executing design projects with shop guests, growth opportunities, and planning for the upcoming retail season.
This role requires being on-site when the shop is open (May - October) with flexibility around location in the off-season (November - April). This position is salaried. Keeler & Co. offers health/dental/vision insurance and 401k benefits as well as vacation and holidays.
