Are you often considered:
A Jack/Jill of all Trades. You can moderate a message board, identify a bug on the site and laugh at bad jokes with sincerity.
Self-driven. You have excellent organizational skills, integrity and great follow through on tasks. You don't get overwhelmed easily - thousands of Member and Organizer emails each month No biggie
Naturally curious. You're a natural innovator, and always looking for ways to make things better.
Graceful. You're self aware, well-spoken on the phone and eloquent in emails. You could navigate a scooter through a Meetup HQ minefield. Or not yet, but you'll figure it out.
Fun. You're a people person who can talk to anyone; you're both flexible and fearless.
Motivated. You're going to own this place in five years or less. Or rather, you're going to take ownership of the time you spend with us and truly make a difference.
The work week is any five days of the week. You can opt for a traditional M - F schedule or create something non-traditional. Desire to work the weekend (or one weekend day) is a big plus. Saturdays and Sundays can be worked either from home or from the office. This position does not allow for full-time telecommuting - it's based here in our New York City headquarters.
