SEEKING ((305)) DJs
We are seeking our next music master to DJ our dance cardio classes. As a DJ, your role is to excite and electrify a room full of people who are working hard to get through a 55-minute, heart-pumping, ass-kicking, totally-strenuous workout. Your role is absolutely integral to the client experience and music is central to everything we do. The techniques you use and the songs you play will make or break the client experience. We are looking for DJs who possess a team-player attitude, love of learning, and a strong skill set in mixing under high-pressure situations. We are seeking smart DJs who collaborate well with others, as you will work closely with our wild, fun-loving instructors.
305 Fitness is one of the fastest growing fitness companies in the country. We pride ourselves on our irreverent brand, our insanely fun team, and our revolutionary dance workout method that clients can’t get enough of. We are growing quickly and are looking for THE badass DJ to help take us to the next level.
No fitness experience is required for this role. We are seeking DJs who especially enjoy mixing pop, top 40, and electronic dance music. You should be willing to work early mornings (6:30AM-9:30AM), evening weekdays (3:30PM-9:30PM), and occasionally weekends (9AM-12PM, 12PM – 5PM weekends). Once you are selected, your weekly call times will remain consistent. We will work around your availability, and are currently seeking DJs for early morning and weekend shifts.
If you've never DJed before but have a background in music, you are still welcome to apply. We have a DJ Training program -- at no cost to you -- where we will teach you how to become the DJ you've always dreamed of becoming. If you don't have DJing experience but are interested in applying, please note it on your application in the body of the email.
Once selected, you will be trained in our 25-hour ((305 DJ Training Program)) where you will learn the structure of our class, advanced mixing techniques, and much more. You will receive unique, one-on-one instruction, catered to your personal needs, with our Master DJs. This training will help you master your craft as a DJ and comes at no cost to you.
Once training is complete, you will begin DJing 2-6 classes per week. Your class schedule will ramp up over the course of a few months, eventually DJing 5-15 classes per week. There are a number of opportunities at ((305)) including the unique ability to DJ during off-peak hours and to work at an exciting start-up with like-minded, fun-loving people. A position as a ((305)) DJ is a great compliment to your artistic career. The hours are consistent and part-time and do not interfere with most DJ gigs. We are highly supportive of artists and traveling schedules.
