Description

Are you fascinated with the entertainment world and the business mechanisms behind it?

Are you the planner of your group of friends?

Do you dream of new ways to surprise and delight people through creative experiences?

Do you like chatting with artists and understanding what they're all about?

Yes?... Really? Then maybe this gig is for you. Kindly read ALL info below before applying!

WHO WE ARE:

Gigzolo is an early-stage online startup developing a new way for event producers to find & book filmmakers, photographers DJs, and other artists for live events. We're focused on creating more job opportunities for creative people, and making art and live entertainment more accessible for everyone.

We are looking for an individual who loves the arts, who loves engaging in the filmmaking community, and who is willing to onboard artists as a member of Gigzolo's artist engagement team!

The Gigzolo artist community is made up of full-time, professional artists at the top of their craft. That said:

  • We don't care about Facebook likes.
  • We couldn't give two craps about Youtube subscribers.
  • We value talent and professionalism, not hype.

To expand our efforts, we're looking for an elite group of talented individuals endowed with a critical eye to serve as tastemakers in the most comprehensive attempt to classify live-event filmmakers in US history.

What is an entertaining act you say?

Literally anything used in a live event to amaze guests. A few examples: Puppy office crashes (we actually send puppies to surprise folks at the office) Onsite “hipster” dumpling making class (think bacon cheeseburger dumplings) Virtual reality surfing exhibition (gives new meaning to ‘surfing the web’) Aerial bartenders (look it up, they’re awesome)

WHAT YOU’LL DO:

You'll work hand-in-hand with our internal curation team to identify, vet, and onboard hundreds of videographers and other artists across the nation:

  • You'll be forging relationships and negotiating deals with creative vendors
  • You'll work hand-in-hand with our internal curation team to identify, vet, and onboard hundreds of event acts and artists across the nation.
  • You'll work remotely, but have weekly contact with fellow team members across the nation, as well as HQ in New York.

CURATION is one of the most important facets of our selection process, and we are looking to YOU to provide us with eyes and ears in the scene.

  • You'll separate the "Okay" from the Good.
  • Then separate the Good from the GREAT.
  • You'll fight for artists you love.

In Addition:

  • You'll spend tons of time speaking to creative acts we've already identified, making relationships, and onboarding them to the platform. -You'll help reinvent the way we showcase these acts on our site, and how we offer them opportunities (we’re currently redesigning and would love your input!)

The internship is a semester long (think 4 months), with opportunities to stay involved thereafter (and become part owner in the company.. more on that later).

We'd love to speak to you about what we're doing, and how you can be a part of it.

If you want to have a role in building something that could change the world, this is your shot. This is not a resume-fluffer internship where you actually do nothing; This is the real deal.

Qualifications

  • Excellent Communication Skills, Love of the Arts
  • Bonus Experience Event Planning
  • The ideal candidate will understand why and how Gigzolo works, and be excited to tell others about us!

About Us

THE COMPANY:

Gigzolo is revolutionizing the way event professionals book handpicked, professional artists (DJs, musicians and soon, photographers) by showing clear pricing and availability for every artist. In minutes, planners can select, chat with, and book artists directly through our platform.

OUR TEAM:

We’re artists and admirers. We're ambitious, focused, intellectual minds with undeniably creative hearts. We're constantly trying to find a balance between being Type-A and wanting to go play outside.

Fun Fact

We live for daily outbursts of laughter over something random, beer pong tournaments on Fridays, and the occasional shameless karaoke session.
