Perform accounting tasks such as monthly financial reporting, and record payments and adjustments.

The ideal candidate for this position will seek to fully own the bookkeeping function within the company, and proactively work with company management, CPA, contractors, vendors, and artists to keep finances and financial data flowing smoothly. She/he/they will be welcomed and encouraged to suggest process and work flow improvements as needed.

We strongly encourage BIPOC, gender non-conforming, genderqueer, transgender, non-binary and disabled candidates to apply.



FoolsFURY is a small ensemble theater company that values the way we work as much as the boundary pushing art we make.  We value discourse and encourage members to lean in and lean back when appropriate.  We implement strategies for greater inclusion and equity in both the office and the studio.  Staff hires are considered members of the company for the duration of their position. Our artists and company staff are made up a diverse cohort of BIPOC, LGBTQ+, straight, gender non-conforming, cisgender, white/white-passing individuals committed to art, ensemble theater and racial justice.

Named the city’s “Best Theater Company” by the SF Weekly (2008), and awarded the SF Bay Guardian’s GOLDIE award for outstanding local theater group, we place a premium on the creation process, building artistic relationships and a commitment to interrogate our assumptions of what American theater can be.  Our acclaimed productions include numerous original works and world premieres, as well as deconstructed classics.  We engage with the community by offering workshops, a year-long apprenticeship program and internship opportunities.  In recent years, we have begun to focus on touring in order to bring our work to a broader audience, give our creations a longer lifespan, and take a greater role in the national dialogue about the future of ensemble theater. As a west-coast hub for ensemble theater, we produce the biennial FURY Factory Festival of Ensemble and Devised Theater, hosting about 20 companies over two weeks and featuring works in progress, mainstage performances, workshops and an industry convening.

Although foolsFURY does not operate a physical theater space, we have long-standing relationships with several San Francisco-based theater companies - notably Z Space, Joe Goode Annex and NOH Space - from which we rent space when needed.

Our yearly budgets fluctuate between $105,000 and $180,000 depending on production scope.
