Here at Ignite Seattle a small team of volunteer organizers works behind the scenes to make everything happen. Thanks to you, our fans, our events have become so popular now that we’re looking to grow our team.
We have two roles, which could possibly be filled by the same talented person!
1. Role: Money-Master (Bookkeeper)
We excel at making the most out of our events, working mostly with volunteers to make everything happen. Yet we do have basic accounting tasks, including paying bills, collecting ticket revenue (from our venue partners) covering expenses, and doing non-profit accounting and planning, things most of us have only minor experience with.
We need an experienced bookkeeper to track our income and expenses, help us make sure we pay our vendors on time, and improve our financial planning and basic accounting.
2. Role: Sponsor-Master
For years we’ve filled Town Hall Seattle, and now, The Egyptian theater, with sold out shows that provide a great platform for the amazing stories, projects and ideas Seattle citizens are working on.
We want to extend that platform to include a handful of select sponsors, trading resources we can use to improve our shows, for premier exposure to our audience and community.
The role would be to define our sponsorship program, recruit sponsors and manage ongoing relationships with them.
Minimum time commitment: a couple of hours a week between events, with spikes of 5-10 hours a week leading up to and during the events (3 times a year).
Rewards: You’ll be part of a fun, smart and loyal team of volunteer organizers, well connected in the Seattle tech and arts community. You will meet many interesting and amazing people, work with a great team, and share in thrills at each live event. You’ll get to use skills you already have to do good in the arts community in Seattle. Ignite Seattle might be one of the most rewarding things you contribute to regularly. .
How we work: We are mostly virtual (Slack), with monthly in person meetings related to the events and our speakers. We are all volunteers and happily wear many hats. You may get your hands dirty often, and have fun doing it, as we are a small, lean team.

- Give us a brief rundown on your past bookeeping and/or sponsorship experience (link to resume or LinkedIn is fine)
- Tell us what you love about Ignite Seattle, and/or why you want to join the team?
