Our long-time and wonderful Program Director, Zoë Salditch, is sadly leaving Rhizome for an exciting new opportunity (stay tuned!). Since we can't possibly replace her, we're advertising a brand new opportunity at Rhizome:
Community Manager & Program Administrator
(Full-time w/ benefits or part-time negotiable)
Deadline: Monday, July 29th at 9am
Send a cover letter and resume to: firstname.lastname@example.org
**Please note this position is only available to those already eligible to work in the US
Rhizome seeks a highly capable, communicative and organized internet native to care for and cultivate our community — through our website, social media, IRL events, cultural infrastructure, and new forms of participation that have yet to be imagined. This individual will also play an important role in supporting and enabling, through strong administration, our best work as a leader in contemporary art and technology.
About us: Rhizome is a non-profit organization based within the iconic New Museum building in SoHo, NYC. Our programs, many of which happen on the internet, support contemporary art engaged with technology, as well as critical approaches to the broader aesthetic, social and political implications of new tools and media. A dynamic organization, Rhizome has a strong profile and is seen as leader in its field.
About the role: This early-career position is dual-focused: to increase participation in Rhizome including site visitorship, memberships, mailing lists, social media and community events; and to support Rhizome’s work more broadly via proactive and thorough administration.
Additionally, like all Rhizome staff, the Community Manager & Program Administrator will be expected to feed into Rhizome’s overall institutional knowledge of internet culture, technology and contemporary art. In particular, this role should act as a ‘first line’ in monitoring emerging practices and new directions among Rhizome’s communities, and feeding them back into the organization and its programs through proactive knowledge-sharing.
Rhizome staff regularly emerge as experts in their field. The position offers great opportunity for career growth in a collaborative and passionate environment.
