Fractured Atlas is seeking a full‐time Program Associate for our expanding team. We have nearly 75,000 artists in our membership nationwide who come to us daily for guidance, assistance and support. This position will provide administrative support for all of our programs and services and for the organization overall. It is an entry-level position and involves a great deal of customer service.

The successful candidate will be incredibly personable, have a cheerful disposition, a sense of humor, possess an incredible amount of patience (particularly as it relates to explaining the same information multiple times), and be able to operate and respond in a fast-paced environment while remaining calm and collected. Candidates with a work history that includes retail or service positions where they provided stellar service in high‐pressure, high‐volume environments will likely excel.

The successful candidate will be someone who thrives in Fractured Atlasʹs ʺwork hard, live wellʺ environment. Our organizational culture embraces people who:

  • Seek out challenging problems and relish opportunities to venture into unexplored territory.
  • Are entrepreneurial and comfortable with high‐risk, high‐impact efforts.
  • Are agile, creative problem solvers with an unsentimental focus on concrete results.
  • Invest their time in quality work and giving others their respect and support.

Additionally, at Fractured Atlas, we are committed to anti-racism, anti-oppression principles in all areas of our internal and external work. This commitment is grounded in our belief that change is possible, and that our work, and that of the artistic community more broadly, will grow stronger as oppression is eliminated.
