We are always looking to add freelance contractors to our list to fulfill roles within our large-scale events. We fill all of our logistics/planning & creative needs with our internal full-time staff, however we will reach out to our contractors for onsite assistance. Our needs are sporadic and depend on our booked events, so please note that this is completely a side job with an average of 4-5 working opportunities per year (can vary greatly depending on our needs and your availability). At this time, we are only looking for candidates in Austin, TX.
