We are currently recruiting for the roles of Senior Developer, Finance Manager and Consultant (Digital Inclusion in Culture)

Senior Developer
Full-time or Part-time

At The Audience Agency, we believe that creating brilliant software can make a real difference to the Cultural sector’s resilience, and to society as a whole. Our products are used by arts organisations – helping them to thrive, effectively delivering cultural opportunities for everyone. Our strategy is all about AI-infused big data insights delivered through a beautiful intuitive user experience. Tech4Good enterprises like us are fun, rewarding and innovative. Join us and you’ll find out for yourself.

Our exciting product roadmap is underway and we’ve already got the biggest cultural engagement dataset in the world, but we need to accelerate as we expand internationally. It involves designing new products and major upgrades to our existing applications.

We’re looking for the right Dev Lead to join our expanding team. Are you someone who enjoys mentoring, collaborating and architecting, while also getting stuck into the code?

We are very flexible on contractual details. We just really want the right person. We’re open to discussing P/T vs F/T, remote working, holiday entitlement etc. Ultimately, we want a permanent employee to grow our young but highly capable in-house team around, but we’re open to contractor arrangements in the interim.

The tech stack is still also up for grabs. We are currently working with Python and PostgreSQL, JavaScript and Ruby in AWS. But we’re not wedded to that and you don’t need to be a guru in those, because you will be a major influence on our tech stack strategy.

If this sounds like you, do reach out to us. We want to move quickly and would love to meet you. Virtually at first, of course.

Finance Manager
Full-time or Part-time

We are on the lookout for a Finance Manager to join our small, but very important, Operations team. You will be responsible for the day to day operation, accuracy and integrity of all the financial accounting systems within the Audience Agency. You will develop, maintain and manage an effective and efficient finance function that provides accurate data, reports and analysis that can be used to inform decision making across the Audience Agency and The Audience Agency Services (the trading subsidiary). Reporting to the COO, you will be responsible for all administrative and transactional aspects of financial and management accounting.

The role is likely to be at least part home-working, but we do have offices in London and Manchester. You will need to be able to work autonomously and be able to supervise, possibly remotely, an assistant. You will have the ambition and enthusiasm to help meet the needs of an evolving organisation.

Consultant (Digital Inclusion in Culture)
Full-time
Interim Role May 2021 – March 2022

The focus of this role is to manage a major project – ‘Digitally democratising archives’ funded by The National Lottery Heritage Fund alongside delivering consultancy for a range of creative and cultural client organisations. The role will work closely with the lead consultant for ‘Digitally democratising Archives’, Katie Moffat Head of Digital, and be responsible to the Chief Consultancy Officer, Penny Mills, while also working on projects independently or with other members of our consultancy and research teams. We are appointing this post to support our service delivery in response to the current demand and to add capacity to effectively deliver the ‘Digitally democratising archives’ project.

We are looking to increase capacity, initially in the short term, as the sector starts to re-open and re-orientate following the Covid-19 pandemic. The level of responsibility and range of projects will depend on the experience and skills of the post-holder.

The post is based at home with some travel anticipated, including to our London or Manchester offices.
