Producer Assistant Internship

1. Why are you building Invisible City?

Invisible City is a non-for-profit on a mission to help artists perform more and get paid fairly.

We believe that performing artists contribute to a life worth living, creating meaning, alleviating pain and highlighting hope.

Our ability to experience beauty through the work of performing artists is a rare blessing. We help artists and people who need them to meet each other and build a lasting friendship by running both public and private performances, mostly online.

We are looking for people sharing this vision to join us.

2. What will I do as an Assistant Producer?

The job of the assistant producer is to help with every aspect of preparing Invisible City performances:

  • Setting up interviews and soundchecks with the artists
  • Running soundchecks with the artists
  • Collecting performance materials from the artists
  • Preparing landing pages for each artist (see example)

3. Must-haves:

  • You respect clarity and timeliness
  • You secretly love calendars
  • Your English is proficient, both when you speak and write
  • You are eager to understand the finer technical details about cables, microphones, and mixing tables
  • You are unafraid of diving into advanced zoom settings
  • You have availability to work in the evenings and on weekends, as this is when invisible performances usually happen

4. How shall we work together?

An invisible internship is a practical mini-university, where both you and us give each other time, consistent daily dedication and feedback. We are a very compact, remote team that loves transforming ideas into products. Yes, you can participate in this internship program from anywhere, including coming to Lisbon, where we have our office. We expect you to generate ideas and make the rest of the team help you make them a reality.

5. Daily teamwork

We meet remotely every morning from Monday to Thursday to discuss and plan, while keeping Fridays sacredly reserved for independent work and study.

All our work happens on Trello and Slack. We hate micromanagement, with passion. We'll encourage you to own projects, to stay self-organised and to spend your free time acquiring new skills, as your growth is what defines our success.

All interns help out at soundchecks with artists and attend all our concerts, sometimes becoming the hosts and running them entirely.

6. Minimum three months

Learning and applying knowledge takes time, this is why in order for this to be a successful experience for both you and us we believe that we need to spend at least three months together. On average most interns spend five months with us, which allows for shared growth.

Our internships demand time, consistent daily dedication and investment into your self-improvement: if you are planning to do this in between studies or after work, you’ll probably exhaust yourself, and we do not think that it is a good way to live your life.

7. Entrepreneurship, money and jobs

Our internships are not paid: they are a way for you to save on expensive graduate programmes and learn by doing.

You'll grow by running real projects and solving real pains.

You will learn about entrepreneurship by being an entrepreneur in the middle of a start-up looking for its product-market fit.

We are proud to acknowledge that the absolute majority of our interns get well-paying jobs in the field of their choice shortly after graduating from Invisible City.

8. Our selection process

Our selection process consists of three stages:

  1. Filling in this very self-assessment form
  2. A remote test where you perform a number of real, everyday tasks
  3. Online in-person interview

Invisible City will provide feedback to each applicant after each selection process stage.
