Our current focus is on a tool that helps producers cast and hire artists, specifically with the goal of helping companies connect with artists from underrepresented communities. There is no popular, centralized website for hiring and casting, leaving many positions to be filled by existing, homogenous, closed networks. By collecting demographic information from our users, we hope to match members when certain identities and skills are integral to the position and introduce new artists to companies who may not have been connected previously.
We are seeking an experienced full stack developer to serve as Engineering Lead. The right person is someone who is interested in gaining experience managing a team of developers and working directly with organizational leadership to build a platform for Chicago’s theatre community. This position will report directly to the Head of Platform, work alongside the UI/UX Designer, and manage several entry-level developers. This person will also assist in recruiting and training their team.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
About CHICAGO ARTIST GUIDE NFP
4814 N DAMEN AVE APT 212, CHICAGO, IL 60625, US
We provide a centralized place for Chicago theatre companies, individual artists, and communities to come together. We remove common obstacles with time and money saving resources so artists can focus on what’s most important: making art.
Our vision is to make getting involved in theatre more accessible to underrepresented groups. We do this by sharing free and affordable resources, connecting companies with their community, and creating an online network of artists available for hire. Many theater companies and artists do not have the time, experience, or resources to put into the business side of the industry. Chicago Artist Guide’s mission is to create tools and gather resources so that artists can spend more time, energy, and money on creating art than on the logistics of producing and running a company.
