About the Role
CreaTV San José is a nonprofit Community Media Center in downtown San José. Our mission is to inspire, educate and connect San José communities, using media to foster civic engagement. Serving the San José and Silicon Valley community since 2008, CreaTV is a nationally recognized Community Media Center focused on access to media and technology, the art of storytelling, and digital equity issues.
CreaTV manages four public and educational Comcast cable channels, airing more than 3,200 locally produced videos in eight different languages each year. CreaTV offers monthly workshops in video production to the public and provides a vast array of video production services to nonprofits, cities, schools and individuals wanting to produce content for the channels. Our vision is to give everyone in San Jose the opportunity to have a voice by providing access to tools, training and distribution platforms. We believe this can transform and deepen our community conversation.
We are at a pivotal juncture in our organization’s history as we lead the effort to create a collaborative space activated by the community and designed to reflect the diversity of San José. Our goal is to redefine how creative spaces are developed and used to transform a community. This new venture - Open San José - features 18,000 square feet of office space, gallery and public spaces, a large studio, and multi-purpose rooms that are fully equipped with technology and designed to be used for live and hybrid meetings, rehearsal space, podcast and media recording, trainings, and more.
We are seeking an Education and Community Manager to lead our community engagement efforts and expand our impact. This critical role is often the face of CreaTV with community partners, organizations, and the general public. Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, this role will oversee two full-time staff. The Education and Community Manager will develop and execute multiple programs in support of strategic expansion of education and community engagement. This role will support efforts to fully utilize our new space and meet the mission/vision of not only CreaTV San José, but also Open San José.

About the Company
Our mission is to inspire, educate, and connect San José communities, using media to foster civic engagement.
We fulfill our mission by providing the training, tools, and platforms that allow diverse and often underrepresented communities to tell their stories and express their views through digital media.
San José is a community where there are no barriers to self-expression through community media.
We seek to create a more equitable media ecosystem with a focus on developing impactful programs for communities who do not have access to or representation in media and technology.
