  • Build a more robust resource center for events which includes:
    • Enhancing current program tools (tracking form, website, and slack channel) to identify more ways to educate users of the event program.
    • Building a vendor database that houses event specific information (Catering, SWAG, Hotel, Venue, etc).
    • Creating location-based guides and templates for more efficient planning.
    • Solving for event storage and equipment.
  • Provide in person event support for high-impact, leadership-focused, or large team events.
  • Manage budgets, vendor payments, contracts and operations, and reporting on spend to ensure payment for vendors.
  • Project manage working teams per event (AV, IT, Workplace, Trust & Safety), providing clear direction to improve coordinated efforts and execution.
  • Partner with Internal Events Lead to execute company-wide and core specific events.

Qualifications

You Have:

  • 3+ years of experience as an events professional or creative role with transferable skills; ideally within fast-pace technology companies.

  • Intermediate/Advanced level understanding of event management scope and planning process.
  • Experience tracking multiple events, hosting events within the workplace, planning offsite events, and vendor/hotel selection.
  • Strong presentation skills that can be conveyed and coordinated to event partners.
  • The ability to organize and prioritize workflows, often interpreting data to guide decisions.
  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills.
  • Full proficiency with Google Suite, including Google Calendar, Docs, Sheets, Forms, and Slides. Bonus if experience with JIRA, Asana, and Canva (or other similar software/project management tools).
