We are in the process of planning our third(!) openhack in Gothenburg. We love Gothenburg and the great ideas and response we have gotten from previous years. We cannot wait to see what will be created this time. We are now looking for more people to join the project group to plan the hackathon.
The event will be held over a weekend in May/June 2019. This will be a great opportunity to get involved in a dynamic team, improve your organisational and leadership skills, as well as be a part of putting together an inspirational event! We do not require a lot of previous experience to be a part of the team, most importantly is that you share our values and want to create an awesome hackathon together wit us!
what we are looking for

You will together with the Project Manager be in charge and keep track of the project’s progress throughout the project. You will be in charge of the economics in the project group, create and budget and ensure that we follow it.

Companies and NGOs make OpenHack hackathons possible by sponsoring with cases based on real humanitarian problems, as well as event necessities, such as premises, food and interesting lectures. Contacting these potential partners and discussing opportunities and cases will be a your main task during the project.
Participants are essential, as you may understand, for fulfilling OpenHacks purpose. Registration and administration needs to be done, keeping track of everybody being present at the hackathon. You will need to keep close contact with the Social Media and PR Manager spreading knowledge about the event and its awesomeness. Creating an evaluation form after the event making it possible for future project groups to learn from us will also be at task.

Public Relations is a key factor for OpenHack’s success. Designing content for publishing on social media is one of the tasks when being Social Media and PR Manager. You will also order merchandise, like T-shirts. If you like to design new content, making information easy to understand and performing marketing campaigns, this is a job for you.
Bringing people together and solving current challenges and making it an experience is what OpenHack is all about. You will be responsible for making breakfast, lunch, dinner, and loads of snacks available for all the participants. Communication with the Partner Coordinator making awesome workshops or lectures with consumables possible. You will also be responsible for constructing a schedule for the weekend as well as recruiting all the volunteers.
