Pop-Up Magazine is looking for an experienced production manager to help us bring our show to audiences across the country. We will consider full-time or part-time candidates. The production manager is a key role on the Pop-Up Magazine team, working with story producers and our musical director to coordinate the various technical aspects of the production. You will work in world renowned theaters as we present Pop-Up Magazine to new markets in 2017. We like to push the boundaries of how to tell stories for a live audience and you will help us think about ways to best execute those stories onstage.
As production manager, you will be responsible for communicating the technical needs of our show with multiple theaters and managing the execution of production elements associated with each show. You should have strong organizational and interpersonal skills, demonstrate an ability to communicate effectively and have a passion for live performance and problem solving. Our show features live music, audio, video and other theatrical segments, such as dance or shadow art. You should have thorough knowledge of audio and video components that go into a theatrical production.
The ideal candidate should have experience working in theaters and/or venues for live productions and could come from a variety of backgrounds. Maybe you’ve worked mostly on live concerts or maybe you come from the theater world. Or you might be working for a conference series or festival that features sophisticated multimedia.
The position requires a minimum of two years professional experience in production management or technical coordination; lots of creativity; and an interest in pushing the boundaries of “live journalism.” Experience with Keynote, QLab, Final Cut, or Pro Tools is a plus but not necessary. Experience working with union venues is another plus.
In all our work, diversity is really important to us.
In the past two years, Pop-Up Magazine has expanded from the symphony hall in San Francisco to Los Angeles, New York, Oakland, Portland, Seattle, Chicago, Boston, and Vancouver. We have big plans, and we need someone to come help make them happen.
