The best part of working on the Startup Weekend team is the feeling that I’m doing meaningful work that truly improves people’s lives all around the world. The second best part is that it’s just too fun to call a “job.”

So far this year we’ve done over 50 events and are expected to do between 80 and 120 more. As our footprint on the world grows larger, so must our team. We are looking to add a few more awesome people on to the team:

  1. One full time hire to join the Events team (you’ll do fun stuff like interact with our volunteer organizers around the world, plan and travel to events, lead our expansion into new regions, help manage our data, track success stories, assist with strategic partnerships, work with an awesome team, and more)
  2. Two interns to do special (and really fun) projects

The ideal candidate profile for the  full-time position:

  • Organized or attended a Startup Weekend (strongly preferred, but not critical)
  • Independent problem solver with a can-do attitude
  • Deep passion for entrepreneurship and changing the world required
  • Taskmaster
  • Located, or willing to relocate to Seattle (strongly preferred) or NYC
  • Comp: salary

The ideal candidate profile for the internships:

  • Has organized or attended a Startup Weekend (strongly preferred, but not critical)
  • Independent problem solver with a can-do attitude
  • Deep passion for entrepreneurship and changing the world required
  • Located somewhere on this planet
  • Students welcome
  • 10-15 hours per week
  • Comp – somewhere between none & very little. The right person will be doing this for the experience, although there may be an opportunity for full-time hire at the conclusion of the internship

Each of these positions offers a unique glimpse into various aspects of the early stage startup ecosystem; you’ll be working hand in hand with entrepreneurs, community activists and generally awesome people all around the world. The full-time position is not a five year gig – this opportunity should appeal to people who want to be engaged in the startup ecosystem either as part of a startup team or founder down the road.
