Join a stable, growing business with more than 50 years of sustained success.

Saint Benedict Press and its sister companies do business all over the United States – with everything from Amazon and Fortune 500 businesses, to “mom and pop” bookstores and small-town business leaders. While our ever-evolving needs make this an exciting opportunity, the best part about working with us is the high-character people you’ll work with and the customers you’ll work for. Our books and multimedia products reach millions of people through eCommerce, bookstores, churches, grade schools, corporate benefits programs, and more.

This position is full-time and based in the Charlotte, NC area. While local, office-based candidates are preferred, telecommuting candidates with compelling experience will also be strongly considered.
