Part of what makes GeekGirlCon so incredible is that we are powered by a team of volunteers. Each of us is committed to making every aspect of our convention and organization as fun, exciting, inclusive, and informative as it possibly can be.

Three of our top needs at the moment are for the roles of Senior Designer, Director of Internal Operations, and Volunteer Manager, but we also have other openings available if none of those are your cup of tea. We’re also looking to grow our copy team, so if you love writing, geek out about grammar, and want to be part of GGC’s greatest team ever (I may be just slightly biased) take a peek at our Copywriter role.

Being a GeekGirlCon staff member means being part of a collaborative, diverse, out-of-the-box team; getting to have a tangible impact on the geeky community; and getting to help build something incredible. I’ve been on staff for almost a year now, and it’s been a fun, motivating, challenging, and rewarding opportunity to support and give back to an organization that is doing great things for girls, women, and geeks around the world.

So, check out our current openings, see if any of them speak to you, and, if so, send in an application. I’d love to meet you at the next staff meeting!
