Event Production Manager

About Cross Campus

Cross Campus partners with building owners to redesign the modern office experience in the image of a boutique hotel, making it more socially active, inspiring, and amenity driven. A globally recognized brand and among the top “coworking” portfolios on the West Coast by footprint, we deliver workspace and event hosting solutions to over 2,500 members ranging from startups and SME’s to Fortune 50 companies.  

We are an investor backed, pre Series B company with a world class team that is growing as we scale our brand and capabilities in the market.

Cross Campus, Southern California’s leading network of collaborative, on-demand workspaces and business event venues, is seeking an experienced Event Production Manager to join our quickly growing events team.

We host a high volume of best-in-class event programming, focused on business, education and entrepreneurship, and we’re looking for someone who has a passion for executing at the highest professional standards to ensure a peak experience for guests and organizers alike.  

Job Description

The main responsibility of the Event Manager will be to handle the entire lifecycle of events—from evaluating submissions, to consultation for determination of production needs (catering, bar, rentals, floor plan), all the way through day-of event production. This also includes client management and overseeing on-site staff.

The Event Production Manager will also provide quotes to potential clients, as well as research, build and cultivate new vendor and service provider relationships.

This is not a “clock in – clock out” job. It requires staying past normal working hours on a regular basis to oversee event execution and interact with organizers and guests. (This is for real. If you find yourself looking at the clock every day at 6pm, this role isn’t for you.)

  • Ability to manage several events at different locations simultaneously 
  • Ability to prioritize, multi-task and thrive in fast-paced goal oriented environment
  • Ability to work and complete tasks independently
  • Integrity, flexibility and creativity
  • Initiative, enthusiasm and a willingness to pitch in at all times
  • Willingness and availability to work nights and weekends as needed for events
  • Proficiency with Google Apps (Docs, Sheets, Calendar, Gmail), Microsoft Office suite and other major cloud-based applications
  • Reliable transportation

Desired Skills:

  • Proficiency in an event management software (Reserve is ideal)
  • Experience operating AV systems - mics, speakers, projectors, etc.
