About us

Based in the UK, and established more than 30 years ago, Artifax is a dynamic, industry-leading cloud software company, developing, supporting, and delivering solutions for venue and event management. Proudly working primarily with organisations in the arts and cultural sector, Artifax supports household names globally including theatres, concert halls, arts centres, festivals, museums, galleries, visitor attractions and places of worship. Customers include Royal Albert Hall, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Southbank Centre, Edinburgh International Festival and Toronto International Film Festival.

We are innovative and entrepreneurial, always looking for new ways to improve our software and services.

Supporting over 400 clients worldwide, we are part of Volaris Group, a global family of more than 450 software companies and a division of Constellation Software Inc, a publicly traded multi-billion-dollar organisation. This allows us to benefit from a wide network of specialist knowledge and resource.

We are an entirely decentralised team, with colleagues in the UK and North America. This role will be remote working in the UK. Ideally, you’ll be based within the home counties, but we will consider candidates based anywhere in the UK, and there are opportunities throughout the year to meet ‘in person’ with colleagues both for business and social activities.

With significant growth plans in the UK and North America already underway, this is a fantastic time to join the team.
