Fracture Atlas seeks Associate Director of Programs


Fractured Atlas, a national nonprofit art service organization with membership over 75,000 is seeking a full‐time Associate Director of Programs to ensure the growth and sustainability of our programs and services. This management-level position will partner with our existing Associate Director to oversee the day-to-day operations for our Programs (customer service) Team and will report to the Chief Operating Officer.

The successful candidate will be a team player and an excellent problem solver with a passion for managing people and operations, and assisting teams in working smarter, not harder. This position requires someone who is able to operate in a fast-paced environment while remaining calm and collected. Candidates with a work history that includes service positions where they provided stellar service in high‐pressure, high‐volume environments will likely excel. Since the team works virtually, this position will require self-motivation and will operate under remote supervision.

Fractured Atlas believes in a ʺwork hard, live wellʺ environment. Our organizational culture embraces people who:

  • Seek out challenging problems and relish opportunities to venture into unexplored territory.
  • Are entrepreneurial and comfortable with high‐risk, high‐impact efforts.
  • Are agile, creative problem solvers with an unsentimental focus on concrete results.
  • Invest their time in quality work and giving others their respect and support.

Additionally, at Fractured Atlas, we are committed to anti-racism, anti-oppression principles in all areas of our internal and external work. This commitment is grounded in our belief that change is possible, and that our work, and that of the artistic community more broadly, will grow stronger as oppression is eliminated.
