A interest in live entertainment, music and/or theatre.
Job responsibilities may include but are not limited to:
Scheduling meetings & organizing calendars.
Researching music, television and other entertainment related subjects.
Interfacing with clients.

This is an entry level job with a weekly salary of $915 per week. This is a full time position on a short-term (3-6 mo) contract with the possibility of extension. There is also opportunity for growth. We are a small company and not able to offer benefits at this time.
We work out of offices in midtown, Brooklyn & Secaucus, NJ, and work at each of these locations may be required pending schedules. There may be the opportunity to work at home on certain days. Production schedules are not always Monday through Friday so work may be required on some weekends. All locations are accessible by public transit so a car is not required. Some travel may be required while we are onsite for events and if so, travel accommodations and expenses will be covered for travel outside the NY metro area.
One Foot Productions is a multifaceted company with experience in creative development, talent booking and logistics management on large scale, celebrity driven entertainment events. We produce a boutique music festival in the mountains of California and are actively pitching and pursuing opportunities related to original music series, theater and experiential content. We also have a custom logistics software platform that we continue to develop and plan for a wider release in 2019.
