Working at MMA

Monterey Museum of Art (MMA) is located on the beautiful Monterey Peninsula and is the only AAM accredited art museum between San Jose and Santa Barbara. The Museum mounts 6-9 exhibitions annually that reflect the diverse, creative legacies of Northern and Central California from the nineteenth century to the present day. Particular strengths of the 7000-item collection are works of the Carmel Arts Colony, California Photography, and Contemporary California artists of the region. We have an ongoing commitment to address the under-representation of women and people of color in our collections and exhibitions.

MMA staff are values driven, self-motivated, and service oriented. Work/life balance is a priority: we offer on site and remote work options, well-being days off and flexible hours, as well as professional development and leadership coaching. MMA staff use Zoom, Asana, Podio and Microsoft Teams to help make our team-oriented work more collaborative and efficient. The Museum seeks candidates of diverse experiences and backgrounds with passionate commitment to the arts and cultural sector, museums, and public education.



Monterey Museum of Art seeks a self-directed, reliable, creative, easy-going, and personable teammate to support all departments. Reporting to and with the support of the Executive Director, the Operations Manager plays an integral role in the administrative, facility, and fiscal operations of the Museum. The ideal person will be flexible and collaborative, gaining a deep understanding of the behind-the-scenes operations of a museum.
