Work With Us

Purl Soho opened over a dozen years ago with the goal of creating a friendly yarn shop where people would gather to ask questions, share accomplishments, research solutions and exchange inspiration. Since then, Purl has developed a devoted following far beyond New York City, bringing together lovers of all needlecrafts and those who appreciate exceptional design, natural fibers and crafting traditions.

This summer, Purl Soho will unveil our completely renovated website. It will put under one umbrella our retail side, Purl Soho, and our creative side, the Purl Bee, and will be a place of incredible inspiration and beauty. Changes are afoot!


We operate in a high energy, creative environment that allows for exceptional talent to thrive and grow with the company. Applicants must have the ability to work remotely and balance time between the NYC Soho flagship store and the brand’s office in Westport, Connecticut.

Interested candidates, please email a resume and brief cover letter to jobspurlsoho [at] gmail [dot] com with the desired role in the subject line, or use the same email address to get in touch for more information about each role.
