Get Involved

Interested in getting involved with One Reel and lending a hand at our events? There are three ways to join the One Reel team: employment, internships and volunteer opportunities. Find more information on each below to see which way is the best for you.



Year Round Staff

One Reel, producer of Bumbershoot, has 10-20 staff positions, depending on the time of year. Openings are posted at onereel.org/jobs.

Seasonal Production (sound, stage, lighting)

We contract with outside vendors to meet these staffing needs.

Seasonal Miscellaneous

We hire temporary staff for our events. If you are interested in a position, please email your inquiry, with an attached resume, to hr (at) onereel.org.



One Reel internships are your chance to see what it’s really like to work on a large-scale public event! One Reel offers 10 internships meeting a variety of career interests. Our internships run from spring through September and are open to both students and non-students. We offer a comprehensive training program that includes multiple areas of focus in festivals management, one-on-one time with your mentor and team, and the chance to see it all come together at Bumbershoot.

Our interns are awesome—doing intensive projects with a direct impact on all our events. You’ll work hard and have a blast, learning real skills that you can directly apply to the real world. Interested? Check out onereel.org/jobs.

Volunteering at Bumbershoot

Volunteers get to see Bumbershoot behind the scenes and do a great community service by helping us do bigger and better things. Volunteers can also earn tickets to the show, get an exclusive Volunteer T-shirt, and can put their hours toward meeting a community service requirement.

Due to an overwhelming interest in volunteering at Bumbershoot, we are currently not taking any new volunteer applications. Feel free to check back later in the year to see if we need more help!

Volunteers who are already registered, login to your Shiftboard account.

If you have any questions please email volunteers (at) onereel.org.
