My name is Ray Mooers and I’m the co-owner and founder of Dusty Strings Company, which started with a fascination for the hammered dulcimer in 1979. From our real grass-roots beginnings, we have had the opportunity to grow Dusty Strings into an internationally-respected brand of hammered dulcimers and harps, as well as a widely known and appreciated regional music store and music school in Fremont. The only way this could have happened is with the help of many dedicated individuals who have shared our vision of providing quality instruments and service that enhance the lives of our customers through music. These are the employees of Dusty Strings. With 40 years of high quality musical instrument manufacturing and retailing right here in the heart of Seattle, we must be doing something right. Come join our team of professionals who take pride in doing great work every day, helping to put beautiful instruments into people's lives.

Please send us a fully completed application form and resume, as well as a cover letter telling us why you would enjoy working here, and what skills and experience you can contribute. Salary is dependent on experience.
