Silverstring is Hiring!
We’re looking for a rad new person to join the Silverstring team, to help us provide valuable expertise to our clients, and deliver awesome, experimental projects for our fans. We’ve worked on amazing and award-winning projects, and want to continue to deliver exceptional artistic and narrative experiences. Silverstring is a queer and feminist studio that values diverse voices; we encourage all applicants who are interested to apply.
Silverstring Media is growing quickly this year, and we’re looking for an awesome Associate Producer to join us. Silverstring is a small team, and like its two partners, you’ll be responsible for wearing a lot of hats to help us manage our projects, run our business, and grow our company. You’ll work closely with our CEO/writer/producer as an important part of the Silverstring team, helping to produce our various games, digital media experiments, and client work.
This is an ongoing part-time contract. However, for the right person, we’re eager to see this position become full-time and have our relationship evolve as the company grows. Applicants must be Metro Vancouver-based or willing to relocate, and will be expected to work primarily from home (at least to start).
