The Event Coordinator will help organize and deliver best in class experiences, supporting our rapidly growing organization and global community of entrepreneurs.
We are looking for a hard working, highly-organized individual who enjoys problem solving and multitasking in a fast-paced environment. You can keep your cool amidst the chaos (ie Events life!) You’re ready to dive-in and become immediately involved, creating impact.
From overall logistics to programming and coordinating speakers, creating unique experiences, and supporting our guests - this person will play a major role in the success of our events. The role will also include the following:
- Oversee vendors (food and beverage, furniture rentals, signage) and some special guests (speakers, volunteers, VIPs) and act as point-of-contact on-site
- Speaker Coordination/Programming - play a role in finding/helping to coordinate top talent (speakers) for the events. Startup Grind has hundreds of high level speakers at our events including founders from today’s top tech companies around the world.
- Own the event database - collect all details of the event and make our database look organized and complete throughout the entire journey (Airtable experience is a plus!)
- Some account management support (sales research, sponsor logistics, etc)
There is huge opportunity for the right person in this role. You’ll learn a ton and have the chance to become a big contributor for the company as a whole. You’ll be joining a small startup that’s built by a hard working, lean team. You’ll get to see your work come to life at our events each year.
We’ll want you to be scrappy and ready to take on a lot of responsibility, with guidance and mentorship along the way.
