Innovative arts non-profit seeks a full-stack engineer to lead technical development.

  • The Live Music Project Calendar is the heart of our community. We are working to launch a nationwide classical music calendar platform that will take the place of the current calendar built on WordPress (livemusicproject.org). As of October 2020, this is the primary focus of the dev team.
  • Dots is our in-house donation platform for performing arts organizations. It currently supports several live fundraising campaigns with growing interest from within the classical music community. Check it out at dots.livemusicproject.org.
  • Spontaneous Free Tickets is a program that brings classical music to new and under-served audiences. In the 2019–2020 concert season, before concert halls closed due to covid-19, we were scheduled to distribute $45,000 in free (donated) tickets to the Puget Sound community. This program is ripe for automation, and our administrators are eager to use our tech stack to scale SFT to the next level. (This automation project is on hold indefinitely until concert halls reopen.)
