We are hiring! We are thrilled to announce we have three new positions on the Blind Tiger team.

Business Development Manager

Social Media & Content Manager

Bar & Box Office Manager

Read on and get your applications in now, we are looking to interview for all three positions the week of October 21.

Business Development Manager

Are you a high-energy leader interested in developing and enhancing your business skills in a fun, collaborative, progressive comedy company? Join the team at Blind Tiger Comedy and find out why we’ve grown into one of the country’s leading comedy schools in just a few years.

The Business Development Manager reports to the Co-Directors of Blind Tiger Comedy and is responsible for managing the financial performance of the company, taking the lead on business growth projects and initiatives, and providing in-house consultation on most major decisions.

This is a new position at Blind Tiger Comedy and as such the role, its duties, and the company as a whole, will grow and develop with you (and we’re into that).

How you’ll spend your time

This role is broken into two basic areas: business analysis and project leadership. You will:

– Drive new projects within the business, identifying opportunities for growth along with the Co-Directors, and driving those projects from start to finish. This could include developing new revenue streams, providing financial analysis on existing arms of the company, and/or assessing business/financial challenges as they arise.

– Produce monthly, quarterly and yearly financial reports and projections.

– Offer support to the General Manager as necessary in completing all venue, teacher and student payments.

– Assist Co-Directors with various projects and communications.

– Play well with others: our company is founded on comedy, and we expect a positive, playful attitude from everyone who works with us and represents us, internally and externally. To quote Neworld Theatre: We’re looking for someone who likes to collaborate and to do so in ways that encourages themselves and the people around them to find joy in their work.

– Above all: be willing to do what it takes to provide the best experience for our students and venues, including intangibles not listed above

What we’re looking for:

– A skilled business and financial mind who can handle business accounting, produce analytical financial reports, and manage small business tax considerations.

– Someone with a background in successful small to medium businesses. They may even have a small business of their own while taking on this position.

– A confident project manager, who can drive a project to completion independently.

– An elite communicator, in person and in writing.

– A trustworthy leader. They can be relied on to problem solve or crisis manage without oversight.

– Experience in comedy, theatre, and/or in the arts an asset but not essential.

What we can offer

Day to Day

We pride ourselves on being made up entirely of professional comedians who can also take care of business. We have a very fun group, and we humbly think we can be pretty fun to work with.

Mentorship

Co-Directors Caitlin Howden and Tom Hill have had long careers in comedy, producing and hustling in various ways, and our General Manager Helen Camisa is a driven entrepreneur herself. We hope there are a few things you could learn from us and vice versa. We’re also committed to internal development for us and for you – we’re all going to keep getting better, together.

Actual Money

Blind Tiger Comedy was founded in part to support professionals working in comedy and expand the infrastructure around comedy in Canada. We have done our best to make this position large enough that it could be a helpful part of an individual’s income.

Furthermore, hiring this position is part of our strategic plan to continue to grow and we’d like to grow this role into a full time position in the nearest possible future. The successful candidate’s abilities and vision will be integral to that growth.

We see this position as 15-20 hours a month, depending on the month. If you show us you need more hours to do more great work, we’re open to that too. Pay is $20-25/hour, or negotiable based on your qualifications. We are also willing to discuss a salary after a probationary period. In either case, bonuses will be available based on you and the company’s performance after one year.

Bottom line: if you think you’re great for this, tell us how and we’ll make it work.
