We’re helping people build events for success and we’re hiring for our Vancouver office. If you’re interested in joining a growing kick ass team, give us a shout.
Here’s what we have to offer:

  • A competitive salary with real equity.
  • Flexible vacation.
  • Contemporary and engaging workplace.
  • Being part of a team that gets shit done and has fun doing it.

We’re on the move.

In Q4 of 2012 our team spent three months in Toronto, Canada as part of the second cohort to be accepted into the Extreme Startups accelerator program.

We have a strong network.

We’ve built up a solid network of mentors, advisors and investors. Use their expertise to help you do your job and make important decisions.

We’re having fun along the way.

When you’re in the business of events, you learn how to throw a good party or two: team outings, lunches, hack-a-thons, poker nights and more.
