Intern at Big Nice

Big Nice Studio is excited to announce our new internship program!  Our mission is to work with clients who want to experience a comfortable and unpretentious approach to recording combined with the experience and equipment of a professional studio.  We strive to provide affordable and accessible rates for projects of all shapes and sizes.

The goal of our internship program is to create an intensive, hands-on experience.  We are seeking driven, self-sufficient, creative, responsible applicants who are excited for the opportunity to work in a dynamic recording studio environment.  In compensation for their hard work, our interns will be given a small stipend and access to the studio for personal projects on off-hours. Upon completion of the program, after 4 to 6 months, our interns should have the skills necessary to run full recording sessions independently.

Applicants should have the following attributes:

  • Excited, curious, humble, innovative

  • Responsible, professional, punctual, alert, self-motivated

  • Must be a proficient musician, engaged with current music trends

  • Experience with home recording, basic understanding of signal flow, mic placement, etc

  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills

  • Own or have access to a copy of Pro Tools

  • Ability to follow complicated directions

  • Ability to take initiative, find work that needs to be done, improve surroundings

  • Readiness to bring fresh ideas to the table

  • Be able to lift heavy equipment (30+ lbs)

  • Have a valid license, access to a vehicle, and live within an hour drive of the studio

  • Flexible schedule with both weekend and weekday availability

  • Positive attitude and good sense of humor

Responsibilities include:

  • Setup and breakdown of recording sessions, including running cables, moving gobos, placing microphones, and setting up Pro Tools sessions

  • General studio cleaning and gear maintenance

  • Accommodating needs of engineers and clients (food/coffee runs)

  • Regularly capturing interesting content and posting to an intern blog

  • Working on various rotating projects around the studio

  • Bringing creative fresh ideas to the studio culture

  • Work a minimum of 30 hours a month in studio

We encourage POC, LGBTQ+, people with disabilities, and other communities historically underrepresented in recording arts spaces to apply. Big Nice strives to dismantle systems, processes, or structures that would discourage any person from working with us.
