Event & Community Manager

What we're looking for

UXDX is seeking a talented individual who is up for a challenge in a growing company. You will be responsible for planning events globally, sourcing speakers and venues on the day for our conferences around the world. You will have direct support from our head of operations when required but you will be given the space to demonstrate your skill and drive.

What's in it for you?

This is an incredible opportunity to make a meaningful impact on the future of a young, but fast growing company. We run events in 10 different countries each year and we're looking to streamline our processes for replication and grow even further. In addition to running the events you will be responsible for creating efficient and repeatable processes to enable delegation of event management and scaling of our community events, working with the local community to fast-track processes. You will get a lot more responsibility and ownership than in traditional companies, which is a double edged sword - your career progression will be quicker, but it will require a lot of hard work and commitment.
