Founded in 1998, the CCA Wattis Institute is an internationally recognized exhibition venue and research institute. As a non-collecting and artist-centered institution, it supports and presents the newest and most relevant contemporary artists working today with exhibitions, residencies, and events. Working under the umbrella of an educational institution, the Wattis places equal importance on longer-term research initiatives such as research forums, reading groups, and publications. As the city’s “kunsthalle,” the Wattis is a central hub and gathering place for the contemporary art community in San Francisco and the Bay Area.

The Visitor Engagement Coordinator will oversee office management, the gallery’s front desk, gallery monitors and interns, and social media accounts, among other responsibilities. The ideal candidate must be extremely detail-oriented, organized, outgoing, and able to multitask with ease. S/he should be able to work independently, but also feel comfortable in a close working environment. Experience and/or interest in contemporary art a plus.
This is a temporary position, 30 hours/week, (12 - 6pm, Tuesday - Saturday), including occasional evening events. This position may transition to a permanent role starting October 1st.
