Events and Community Manager

Growth /
Full-time /
Hello, we’re Instrumentl.

We’re a mission-driven startup helping the nonprofit sector to drive impact, and we’re well on our way to becoming the #1 most-loved grant discovery and management tool. To help us get there, we’re hiring an intellectually curious Events & Community Manager, who will collaborate with our Growth team to scale and optimize multiple initiatives across our go-to-market teams.

Do you love putting together events and connecting people to quality education? Do you love testing and scaling hypotheses? Ready to make a social impact while working in tech? If so, this position is for you.

About us:

Instrumentl is a hypergrowth YC-backed startup with over 3,500 nonprofit clients, from local homeless shelters to larger organizations like the San Diego Zoo and the University of Alaska. We are building the future of fundraising automation, helping nonprofits to discover, track, and manage grants efficiently through our SaaS platform.

Our charts are dramatically up-and-to-the-right 📈 — we’re cash flow positive and doubling year-over-year, with customers who love us (NPS is 65+ and Ellis PMF survey is 60+). Join us on this rocket ship to Mars!

About the role:

As an Events & Community Manager at Instrumentl, you’ll be responsible for planning, organizing, and executing educational events and managing community engagement initiatives. Your primary goal will be to generate demand by creating meaningful experiences and building a strong, enthusiastic community. You'll work closely with our other Events & Community Manager, Rachel.

Instrumentl is a startup, so you’ll have the unique opportunity to contribute across many areas of the company and help define the future of your role as the 7th member of the Growth team. You’ll have significant ownership over the event calendar and the creative freedom to pitch new event formats and community-building approaches.

We’re interested in candidates who think strategically, thrive on community engagement, and take every opportunity to improve existing processes.

Alongside Rachel, you'll be working closely with:

- Ryan, Content Marketer
- Taylor, Email Marketer
- Michael, Product Marketer
- Emily, Growth Designer
- Will, Head of Growth & Marketing

Get to know us at!

The Instrumentl team is fully distributed (read: no office!). For this position, we are looking for someone based in the continental US, but open to candidates who have substantial overlap with standard working hours in the Central Time Zone.

What you'll get to do:

    • Lead and scale a growing educational grant workshop series with thousands of nonprofit attendees
    • Conceptualize, plan, and coordinate events such as virtual summits, conferences, seminars, workshops, and networking sessions
    • Develop and implement marketing strategies to promote events (event collateral and offer development, social media campaigns, media partner coordination, and other promotional channels)
    • Establish and maintain relationships with key stakeholders, including event sponsors, industry influencers, community leaders, and nonprofit organizations
    • Grow our community by organizing activities, programs, and initiatives that encourage interaction, collaboration, and networking among members (e.g. online forums, user groups, meetups, and special interest groups)
    • Pitch and onboard new affiliates to our partner program
    • Test hypotheses and collaborate with the Growth team to validate new opportunities

What we're looking for:

    • 2+ years of full-time work experience: you have been part of a Growth, Sales, Customer Success, or Marketing team, preferably at a SaaS company.
    • Comfort and experience running online education events: you’ve run online workshops with several hundred attendees at scale and feel comfortable doing so.
    • Strong business acumen: you can answer unstructured business questions and interpret qualitative and quantitative data to drive projects to conclusion.
    • Excellent analytical skills: you spot trends quickly, and are highly comfortable conducting analysis with tools like Google Analytics, Google Data Studio, Heap, and Excel.
    • Clear communication: you pride yourself on your ability to communicate complex topics easily in person (or on video) and in writing.
    • Effective execution: you work efficiently, meet deadlines, stay organized, and have a reputation for being incredibly dependable. It pains you to miss a goal or milestone. 
    • Resourcefulness: you are able to conduct research and figure out solutions to new problems, given general direction and guidance.
    • Tech savviness: you love using tools like G Suite, Zoom, Slack,, and Canva. You’re a fan of shortcuts and can name your favorites off the top of your head.
    • Growth mindset: you’re a self-motivated learner, and you welcome the chance to exchange constructive feedback with colleagues.
    • Friendly demeanor: you are warm and approachable, easy to work with, and genuinely enjoy connecting with others.
    • Bonus: you have worked at early-stage startups and feel comfortable (or even thrive!) with ambiguity.
    • Bonus: you have experience in the nonprofit sector, especially with grants.

Compensation and Benefits:

    • $50,000 - $75,000/year DOE + equity
    • 100% covered health, dental, and vision insurance for employees, 50% for dependents
    • Generous PTO policy, including parental leave
    • 401(k)
    • Company laptop + stipend to set up your home workstation
    • Company retreats for in-person time with your colleagues
    • Work with awesome nonprofits around the US. We partner with incredible organizations doing meaningful work, and you get to help power their success.
