Volunteers and staff needed for Ignite

Most of these are volunteer positions, but they pay dividends in hugs and cupcakes (and you can keep the shirt). Also, volunteering is a great way to get free tickets to the event.

The Associate Producer role is a paid position.


You work in teams of 2 or 3 and use your smartphone to scan tickets and give out a wristband and a free drink ticket to each attendee. You'll need to download Eventbrite's "Organizer" app to your smartphone (iOS or Android). Hours are 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. You'll get to watch most of the talks. You're paid in hugs and cupcakes. (We need about 6 people.) Please


You guide the speakers and attendees to where they need to go, answer questions, provide assistance to anyone who needs help, and be a welcoming, friendly presence. Hours are 4:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. You'll get to watch most of the talks. You're paid in hugs and cupcakes. (We need about 4 people.) Please


You sit in the control booth with the lead engineer and you press the button on the laptop to start each talk. It sounds simple, but it requires vigilance and attention to detail throughout all the live performances. Hours are 5:00 p.m. – 9:30 p.m. You'll get to watch all of the talks from the booth. You should have a solid understanding of Macintosh computers and Apple Keynote. Please

ASSOCIATE PRODUCER (paid position)

This is a paid position, not a volunteer role. The work involves a couple hours running errands a few days prior to the event, and then on the day of the event the hours are long, from Noon – 10:30 p.m. (with ample time for meals and breaks.) The day-of work involves load-in and set-up of gear and signage (bulky and unwieldy, but nothing heavy), wearing a headset during the show so you can be responsive to the various fiascos that may occur, handling communications between the Executive Producer and staff, and finally strike and load-out. You may not get to watch all the talks because you'll be busy. Attention to detail and live event or theater experience preferred. Please
