Director of Operations – Nine Dot Arts
Company Name: NINE dot ARTS
As leader of the Acquisitions Team, you will be responsible for managing the current team of three Project Managers and overseeing your own portfolio of high complexity projects.
The Acquisitions Department is in charge of purchasing all artwork from a variety of sources, negotiating pricing, ensuring preparation, and overseeing installations on a client site. That means stellar coordination skills to get all the right pieces of information from our Curators, purchase from artists and galleries and vendors, get artwork printed and framed and prepared for shipping and hanging, work with constantly shifting deadlines to schedule professional art installers, make game-time decisions when there’s a surprise in the wall finishes, and ensure everyone’s work culminates in the installation of a world-class art program. Our higher complexity projects also necessitate coordination with external partners such as engineers and architects to manage exterior installations and large-scale sculptures. This is a role that is high in both urgency and satisfaction.
The Senior Project Manager can work remotely from any of the following metro areas: Denver, CO; Seattle, WA; Atlanta, GA; Nashville, TN; Charlotte, NC; or Austin, Dallas, or Houston, Texas. Our beautiful offices, a houseboat on Portage Bay in Seattle and an open and art-filled office in Denver, are available for workspace or meetings. Some travel is required for out-of-state installations and team meetings.
