Work with Us

Kramerbooks & Afterwords Café is an iconic café and bookstore concept, right in the heart of Dupont Circle. Our bookstore is known for its carefully curated selection of books and merchandise. Our café offers American bistro cuisine and an extensive beverage program including 18 draft beers. Both are open extended hours and are an integral part of DC’s day and nightlife.

We’re always on the lookout for team members and managers who are passionate about providing exceptional hospitality. Previous independent bookstore experience, or experience in a high-volume full-service restaurant environment, is always a plus. It’s more than okay if you’re a little bit quirky and independent – so are we!

We offer a progressive and expanding benefits package to our full-time team members including:

  • Competitive pay
  • Generous paid time off
  • Discount programs
  • Medical, dental, and vision insurance
  • Life, long-term disability, and hospital bridge insurance
  • 401k
  • Progressive employee assistance program
  • A focus on developing our team, and promoting from within where possible
  • A supportive, collaborative, and high-performing culture
  • We have exciting plans for space, and now is a great time to come on board!
