  • 5 people are interested

TEDxSeattle is growing, and we are in search of a Co-Organizer (multiple positions possible) to help define the long-term vision for the TEDxSeattle Organization and build a team of volunteers and partner organizations to help execute on that strategy. As Co-Organizer, your goal would be to support multiple TEDx Seattle teams and ensure they are effective.

This role requires a balance of strategy and execution. You will often be expected to roll up your sleeves and take on individual tasks when they can't be completed by volunteers on the team. A successful leader in this role will be able to build highly effective and dependable teams

A good co-organizer should be able to:

  • make difficult decisions that will impact large numbers of people (either volunteers or members of the TEDxSeattle community)
  • help realign volunteers or hire new volunteers when team members step down from their roles.
  • responsibly manage our budget and finances

Responsibilities include:
  • Defining the strategic and organizational structure for TEDxSeattle
  • Build programs and support systems for TEDxSeattle's ancillary teams (TEDxSeattleWomen, TEDxYouth@Seattle, and TEDxSeattle Salons)
  • Set annual event strategy, including event format, location, speaker count, etc.
  • Lead a team of managers and empower them to successfully lead their teams
  • Be responsible for the overall P&L of the TEDxSeattle organization along with ancillary events
  • Create programs to ensure that volunteers continually get value from their volunteer experience year after year

Qualifications include:
  • 5+ years of leading large cross-functional teams
  • 5+ years of planning and executing large-scale events
  • 3+ years of leading teams of people managers
  • 3+ years of overseeing P&L for a team or organization with six-figure annual revenue

Mission Statement

About TEDx Seattle TEDxSeattle is one of the first TEDx events offered in the world, and is our region’s premier TED-style event as well as the largest in Washington State. Our premiere event is usually hosted at McCaw Hall, where we guide 2,800 people through a series of TED talks, audience activities, and lobby experiences over the course of a day. We also produce a series of smaller TEDx events around Seattle during the year.


TEDxSeattle is a volunteer-based organization that strives to spread ideas worth sharing. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TED has created a program called TEDx. TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. Our event is called TEDxSeattle, where x = independently organized TED event. At our TEDxSeattle event, TEDTalks video and live speakers will combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group.
