NOrg is looking for humans to hire!

You might be wondering - why is a non-commercial, volunteer-run event looking for employees?

In 2016 we decided as an organization to hire one person, to manage some of the event-critical tasks that really require a full-time attention to the event. This came after a lively debate at our All Leads Meeting and among participants and the event organization. As the event has grown over the last few years, we’ve brought on a couple more people here and there to help us put the event together. They work on things like project management, event financial management, negotiating our permit and liaising with providers, among other tasks. This are the kind of jobs that, we’ve seen, really need someone looking after them full-time, and that’s too much of a workload to ask a volunteer to do without pay.
 
So, come work for Nowhere! Check out the job descriptions and get in touch if you think you’d be right for one of the jobs.
