Join Us

You made it here – we like you already!

The Katapult project would not survive without the massive amount of effort put in by volunteers. Whether it be renovating, cleaning, working at the door or the bar, doing lights or sound for a show, performing, teaching, organising, or something else, hundreds of people have already put their time and energy into this project, and the beauty of it is, the more people who get involved, the less of a burden it is on any one person.

Still, coordinating something as big as this is a full time job. As Katapult expands, we are looking for energetic new team members to join us in our fancy new office.

If you see something you like, send an email to: oli@katapult.berlin stating which role you are applying for. Please include your CV and any further information that you feel will be helpful for your application.

We’re looking forward to meeting you.
