About Matter

Our goal is to help people live healthier, happier, longer lives — for themselves and the people around them.

We’re a small, fully-remote team committed to doing our best work. For us this means balance. We work Monday through Thursday. In addition to every Friday, we offer 20 vacation days per year, plus the last week of December. Compensation includes stock options. The salary range for this full-time role is $130,000 to $150,000.

Responsibilities

We’re all here to support and help each other, but you need to be able to work independently. Here are some of the things that you’ll be up to:

  • Lead strategic planning, development, and execution of memorable flagship IRL and virtual experiences for the Matter community.

  • Build a community-led events program. Create and support a sustainable model for the Matter community to host their own events that advance the Matter mission to help people live healthier, happier lives.

  • Support Matter’s overall community and brand goals. Ensure that both online and offline experiences support a consistent message and brand experience.

Qualifications

College degrees and certifications, numbers of years of experience, and prestigious accolades are not required. General life experience, expertise in your area, curiosity, and generosity with skills and knowledge are more important. 

We’d love to hear about your experience:

  • Managing internal and external teams to deliver successful creative productions at scale with and/or for brands and agencies.

  • Developing and managing event budgets from $10,000 to $100,000.

  • Producing events that deliver on a company’s brand goals. 

  • Sweating the small stuff — how you navigate the details and complexities of each production. 

  • Creating event structure and processes that enable profound, personal experiences for large and diverse communities of people.

Benefits

Doing meaningful work shouldn’t come at the expense of building a meaningful life. At Matter, this means:

  • Four-day work week: Monday through Thursday

  • 20 vacation days of your choice, plus the last week in December off

  • Remote-first work environment

  • 100% company funded, premium healthcare coverage for you and your dependents

To apply

Even though we’re all pretty experienced, we all learn something new almost every day. It may be about neuroscience, design, or technology. Or it may be about something else entirely. We’ll be excited to learn from you, too. 

If you’re interested in this role, please email the following to jobs@matter.xyz:

  • Resume (or LinkedIn profile)

  • Cover letter — tell us about a project you’re proud of

We’ll look forward to hearing from you.
