Description

Are you fascinated with music 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?

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

BONUS: Do you have experience in event production (theatre, concerts, special events)?

WHO WE ARE:

Gigzolo is a new internet startup helping event producers book professional, hand-picked entertainment across the country, from DJs to interactive sushi exhibitions to breakdancers… basically any act that captivates an audience. 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 studying trends in live events and production, who loves engaging in the arts and the events 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, craftsmen, and event production professionals at the top of their craft. That said:

  • We don't care about Facebook likes.
  • We couldn't give two craps about Instagram followers.
  • We value talent, creativity, 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 entertaining event acts 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 be forging relationships and negotiating deals with creative vendors
  • You'll be developing business methodologies for vendors nationwide
  • 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.

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 artists 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!) -You'll create a new process in order to help clients find the type of act that best suits their event goals.
  • You'll work remotely, but have bi-weekly contact with fellow team members across the nation, as well as HQ in New York.

Qualifications

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.
