Founded in 2004, Constant is the parent company of creative artist management firm Constant Artists and music x tech start up Constant Studios. Headquartered in Los Angeles (but staffed remotely), Constant specializes in the intersection of art, music, and technology.
Constant Artists currently represents Future Islands, Sudan Archives, Explosions in the Sky, Parra, Washed Out, and Wolf Parade. We provide exclusive worldwide management and consulting services to an established roster of musicians, visual artists, producers and composers, and pride ourselves on working with the most talented artists in their respective fields.
Constant Studios was created in 2017 to develop technology solutions for creative industries.
We are very interested in the future of artists and the arts, and how technology will change our industry. A natural interest in tech and its relationship to art across mediums is an important element to our internal culture.
The Managing Director position is focused on running the business of Constant. Our Founder / CEO runs all things client-facing, and the MD runs the rest - B2B, administration, staff and company wide strategic projects, performance tracking - in collaboration with the CEO. This role will be responsible for executing, or overseeing the execution of, our finance, operations, marketing, human resources, and IT functions of the business.
The ideal candidate has experience running a small to mid-sized company, is a tech-savvy creative problem solver who possesses shrewd attention to detail, and is someone who understands the evolving landscape of the broadly defined modern entertainment industry.
This position is typically based in Los Angeles, but due to our current remote work set up, applicants based in North America, or applicants able to work during North American business hours may apply.
To Be Considered, You Must, At the Very Least
Position Requirements, Preferences, and Details
The area of responsibility for this role is broad and thus requires thorough knowledge of many company processes. The ideal candidate must be competent and able to plan different kinds of operational activities, prepare professional presentations, and be an excellent leader that will constantly be seeking the most efficient ways to run our business. The ideal candidate will possess the following:
If you've made it this far, and you know this is the perfect opportunity for you, we beg you - please send everything requested below. We know - CV's are old fashioned, and you can trust we're making hiring decisions based solely on resume. It's a jumping off point, and tbh, it's a weeding out mechanism for all the people that are going to apply that have none of the qualifications we've explicitly listed.
Second author's note:
Our interview process has several stages, and while we understand we ask for more in the hiring process than other companies may, that's intentional. We don't want to be one of 20 roles you're applying for - there aren't 20 of this role out there, so if you're applying to 20 jobs, this one isn't for you. We want to be one of a handful you know you're perfect for and would excel at if given the chance.
If you know your resume or your experience lacks one or more of the requirements or preferences above, get out in front of it, and explain in your cover letter (we know - also very 90's - but you'd be surprised how helpful (for us) writing samples can be). We do read all of them, and it's usually clear who wants a job (period), and who wants this job. We're looking for the latter.
Applicants Who Do Not Provide The Following Materials Will Not Be Considered
All applications must be made via this application page. Feel free to ping a staffer if you know one (initiative!) and ask them to push you to the top of the pile, but make sure that's happening in addition to your application being submitted here, or the HR robot we're leasing to conduct this search won't let you pass.
Unfortunately due to the volume of applicants we receive with every job posting, we aren't able to respond to every application. We don't have a set hiring cut off for this position, as we're looking for the best available applicant(s), so the position is open until it's not.
Thanks very much for your interest in this position, and we look forward to hearing from all qualified applicants.
