[Editor's note: Woo-whee! The Mercury has two great positions we're currently hiring for: an Arts & Culture editor that will work in our editorial department, and the one below that's looking for a special someone to join our crackerjack calendar team! Both positions are super fun and interesting, and you'll be working alongside some of the smartest, coolest people in town. Check it out!]

Live entertainment is back in the Northwest! From theater to comedy, visual art to film, our arts calendars are essential to EverOut's guides to things to do in Portland and Seattle, and we're looking for a dedicated Arts Calendar Editor to maintain them and make them shine.

If you're a stickler for details, you're comfortable with behind-the-scenes work, you love going to live events, and you live in Portland, this could be the position for you.

We're in search of an energetic, hardworking, self-starter who is dedicated to our mission of making EverOut the most comprehensive resource for local events on the internet. This position will consist largely of creating listings for arts events using our custom content management system, as well as scouring venue websites and social media for new events and managing email submissions. Candidates should also be strong writers, as writing some event descriptions for arts events will be involved, but this is primarily not a writing position.

If this sounds like you or someone you know, read on for details. The application deadline has been extended a week—apply by this Sunday, January 9!
