What we’re doing to keep employees safe
As COVID-19 upended our lives and profoundly changed how we work, Sundance Institute moved quickly to put our employee’s’ health and safety at the forefront. Since mid- March, we have mandated that all our employees work from home until further notice, and all of our recruitment and onboarding processes now take place virtually. We set up an internal working group to plan for how and when to return to our offices—and when we eventually do so, safety precautions and flexibility around remote work options will be paramount. We also pride ourselves on the benefits we have always provided that are especially critical during a pandemic, such as our life assistance program, telehealth options, and paid sick time.
Sundance Institute is dedicated to the discovery and development of independent artists and audiences.
At our core, we believe that individuals can spark new ideas that entertain, push creative boundaries, and ignite empathy and understanding that can ultimately lead to social change. We not only look for these attributes in the artists we support, but the extraordinary talent that we hire to bring our mission to life. With that, we encourage individuals from diverse and historically underrepresented communities, as well as those with unique and transferable skill-sets from various industries, to apply to join the Sundance community
We’re building a talent community full of inspired individuals who want to be a part of the action through our Institute roles, Festival positions, and other short-term, internship, and volunteer opportunities.
