500 Startups is looking for a conference producer (Event Operations) to join our SF-based team. As part of the events division, you’ll be a huge force in the backend operations associated with our startup and investor conferences, Demo Days, and “Geeks On A Plane” world tech tours.

> Timeline Management - Building extremely clear, detailed, & logical timelines associated with each event & managing event databases to ensure all deadlines are met, all info is documented & up-to-date, building templates, & creating solid, repeatable processes 

> Speaker Communications - Point-of-contact for all confirmed speakers as it relates to event logistics, pre-event deadlines, and collecting relevant information 

> Vendor Management - Interviewing, negotiating with, & managing vendors both before, during, & after the event 

> Attendee Communications & Customer Service - Communicating efficiently & effectively with “customers” (attendees) to ensure their questions are answered and their needs are met. 

> Constant Writing & Communication - Conducting clear, logical, and efficient email & verbal communications 

> On-Site Show Production - Pre-event set-up, vendor & volunteer management, overseeing all areas of the show (registration, F&B, A/V, speaker & attendee needs, sponsor areas, etc.)
