Hi there!

We’re looking for an expert multi-tasker experienced in planning massive events for teams of upwards of 1000 people. If you love designing amazing events, negotiating great deals with vendors, and wrangling 100s of people traveling from around the world, read on…

About You

  • You have designed and managed events for at least 300 people.
  • You’re a good steward of the company’s money and can find the perfect balance between saving money and keeping attendees happy.
  • You’re no stranger to booking travel arrangements for massive groups of people.
  • You are extremely detail oriented!
  • You’re data driven and love working with numbers.
  • You are excited to learn how we are currently doing events and why.
  • You are a creative thinker and feel comfortable making suggestions on how we can improve events as we grow.
  • You’re an expert negotiator who makes deals with the company’s best interests in mind.
  • You excel in a fast-paced, ever-changing environment.
  • You keep inclusivity in mind in all of your planning choices.

Things You Might Do

Zapier is a fast-growing, remote-first company, so you’ll likely get experience on many different projects across the organization. That said, here are some things you’ll probably do:

  • Source venues and find the perfect spot to host retreats for groups ranging from 10 to 1000 people.
  • Create, manage, and adhere to a budget for all events.
  • Ensure every team member books their flights on time and within approved budgets.
  • Work with venues to create menus that cater to allergies and dietary restrictions.
  • Communicate all details of events to attendees in advance and setting expectations for events. This includes writing internal blog posts and creating websites for events.
  • Traveling to most of our dept retreats to handle details and anything the team needs you to do.
  • Manage every aspect of the events once on-site, including welcoming attendees, working with the venue staff to make sure everything is going as planned, making sure all event attendees are taken care of, arriving early to set up the venue and staying late to tear everything down.
  • Ensuring all attendees feel comfortable and included
  • Collecting feedback after events and making suggestions for improvement based on that feedback
  • Find creative ways to improve our events as we grow.
  • As part of our All Hands Support initiative, help customers have the best experience with Zapier as possible.
