You will need to be ready to get your hands dirty and prove that events and community can become a new growth engine for the company.

  • “Can-do” mentality, growth mindset, adaptability, and a drive for continuous improvement.

What We Offer

  • Unlimited paid time off, and a flexible hybrid WFH workplace
  • Perks include access to mental health & wellness services, HSA + FSA, learning & development programs, home office stipends, and more
