Elsewhere’s Values

Don't overlook these important tips when applying for jobs online to ensure that you find legitimate job postings and avoid scams. Employers who only conduct interviews over text or email may not be reputable, so it's important to verify their authenticity. Be wary of job postings that ask you to complete a task or project before being hired. Never agree to wire money or send gift cards to a potential employer. If you're uncertain about the job posting, it's best to contact the company directly to confirm the job's legitimacy and availability. Ensure your personal information is safe by only providing it to legitimate employers you trust. Don't let a potential employer pressure you into sharing your bank account information, even if they claim it's necessary for the job. Do your research on the company and the position to ensure that the job posting is legitimate. Before accepting any job offer, research the company to ensure that it's a reputable and trustworthy organization.

These values are real and guide all of our decisions in how we operate and how we treat people. This includes our decisions to hire, reward, and fire. Every single person at Elsewhere will be held to these standards. This is how we build a great team, achieve our goals, and do so enjoyably.


Elsewhere is a haven for our staff, artists, and audiences to experience the joy of expressing their authentic selves. Everybody has the right to feel welcomed and understood here, in direct defiance of all the ways our society tries to divide us up out there. We crave connectivity and togetherness. We’re curious about the unknown. We’re open-minded to a fault.


The chills we get experiencing transcendent music in a crowd remind us that a better world is possible. Elsewhere is a celebration of that feeling - of joy, wonder, and hope. We are here to have fun, and we reject cynicism in all its forms.


Our love for the game comes from a place of deep respect: for the extraordinary history of music and nightlife in NYC, for the working artists out there redefining culture, and for our staff who live and breathe it every night. To do right, we extend that respect to each other and everyone else along the journey.


Our job means service: to our teammates, artists, customers, community, city, and to the culture. We can’t do this without being kind to ourselves, to each other, to our artists, to our audiences, and to our community. Be understanding, empathetic, go out of your way to help people out, be friendly, generous, considerate. We celebrate individuality, but there is no place for selfishness or ego.


We believe strong communities are built on trust, and so everyone must rely on us to be honest, transparent, and consistent. We live our values and stand by them even when it’s hard or inconvenient. We admit our mistakes and work to grow from them.


There are much easier ways to earn a living. The renewable resource that keeps our team sustained is an unshakable conviction in some aspect of our mission, whether it’s supporting new artists, helping audiences discover music, building community, or shifting culture.


To accomplish our goals we aim high, and work both hard and smart.


The beauty of culture is that it is always evolving, and so should we. We value out-of- the-box thinking, challenging “the way things are,” and imaginative leaps. Like in art, it is better for us to fail trying something new than to not be experimenting in the first place.


To make a well-informed decision about the job, take the time to read the posting carefully. If you are confident that you meet the qualifications and expectations of this job, we invite you to apply. We want to make sure that all applicants are well-informed and have a clear understanding of the job expectations before applying. Don't rush to submit your application - take the time to research the company and demonstrate your interest in the job in your cover letter. However, you may be interested in other job vacancies on that offer different opportunities.
