FLOWTOYS FESTIVAL REP: PART TIME POSITION

We are seeking an awesome person to be part of our festival team for 2013 and beyond. This is a part-time position that entails going to various events to promote the flow arts in general and Flowtoys in particular. You will be sharing a leadership position with members of our current team.

This is not a 10-6 typical tradeshow position. You will be camping. You might have long hours that are hot during the day, and cold at night. It might rain. There could be a sandstorm. There will be loud music, mostly of an electronic nature. People from all walks of life, at varying levels of sobriety will be coming up to you asking all sorts of questions, and trying to distract you from your mission.

You gotta LOVE it. You gotta be organized, responsible and on it in a potentially chaotic environment, while making our scene look as great as our products. The position also entails helping load-in/load-out the day before and after each event. Typically we load up and drive out on Wednesday night or Thursday morning, and return late Sunday or Monday night, haggard and happy. You might have to take turns driving to the event in the company van, help set up camp, stake stuff to the ground securely in the dark and smile if the organizer says you have to move it all the next day :)

We know you are out there and that you will love this job.

For the record, this position also entails going to some of the most excellent music festivals in the world and sharing your love of Flowtoys with the people around you. It means working with and hanging out with an awesome team of people, who are down for an awesome cause. You will be paid on a commission basis.

We will be taking applications until 31 July 2012.

We will select potential candidates to train at Lake Tahoe Flow Arts Festival (5-7 September) and Pacific Fire Gathering this year (14-16 September).

Ideally your schedule would be flexible next summer from April through October. We typically have 1-2 festivals in April, 2-3 events in May, 2-3 in June, and 1-2 per month from July through October. Many of these events haven’t confirmed their 2013 schedule, so we won’t know exact dates for several months.

You must be available for most events to be considered.

Please send the following to prisna@flowtoys.com:
- brief cover letter explaining how you fit the position requirements
- tell us what stresses you out and how you handle it in about 100 words
- tell us what makes you thrive and how you rejoice in about 100 words
- work/life resume with references
IDEAL CANDIDATE
- On it, organized and able to multitask
- Good attention to detail and cares if stuff looks good
- Great people person and able to roll with the punches
- Works well in a team environment
- Able to take direction, initiative and responsibility
- Basic product knowledge and knowledge of flow arts
- Likes camping and the festival environment
