Join our nonprofit startup and help diversify Chicago theater by making the process of producing theatre accessible to everyone! We are an all-volunteer staff and are looking for friendly, self-motivated people with an interest in contributing to our mission.
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.
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 entry-level professionals and recent grads to join us as Frontend Developers. The right person is someone who is interested in gaining experience, working with a team, and contributing to our mission. This position will report directly to the Frontend Engineering Lead and work alongside our other volunteer developers.
