Have you heard about the Festival?

We're hiring an Event Manager who's going to lead the Festival 2017 preparation, execution and follow-up.

Last year we've had 1000 tech professionals and over 60 sponsors as well as many speakers attending. In 2017 we're aiming for more, a lot more :)

We need someone who's crazy enough to launch a sardine to space and at the same time make sure that we've got a substitute vessel when one of our sailboats breaks down as the Festival is about to start. Yes, shit happens during events, Murphy likes to show up when least expected...

We need someone who doesn't panic during panic situations :) who's got a multi-thread brain, endless energy (we've got Redbull just in case), friendly & polite but not afraid to shout to a volunteer or team member to get real. Kidding, we take really good care of our volunteers!

You'll be taking care of everything: speakers management, volunteers, logistics, space, employer & tech pro's onboarding & offboarding, supplier management, security, etc, etc. I don't want to spoil the fun :) This may or may not include organising other smaller events to promote or follow-up on the Festival.

Ah, and make sure the Festival is a profitable endeavour.

Not only will you be making sure it's great, you will boost your network by 1000x and you'll be part of something great – just watch the video again.

Let's do this?

Main requirements

  • Super organised.
  • But, open to crazy ideas too!
  • Not afraid of reaching out to speakers, sponsors, suppliers...
  • People love you and listen to what you tell them (and, most important, do what you tell them to aka leadership skills).
  • Anti-panic but not a hippie either :)
  • Budget control freak, yep - Paiva will love you for this.
  • Past experience organising events
  • Passion for tech


  • Laptop & cool office in the heart of the sexy Lisbon
  • An amazing company culture and loads of social and team-building events
  • Be part of the conceptualisation moment of Festival :)
