Sylva is on a mission to create a sense of belonging online. We operate as a fully-remote, highly-decentralized organization. We want to create an environment where all of our teammates can do the best work of their lives and share in the upside of the company that we’re building together. We are backed by some of the top venture firms in the world and are scaling quickly.

Many of our communities run large scale events or conferences designed to bring members of the community together while driving growth in revenue and membership. We are hiring someone to supercharge those efforts on our team, taking some of the work off of our community leader’s plates and identifying new opportunities for communities that do not yet prioritize large scale events.

Your Responsibilities will include: 

  • Building out a brand new function for Sylva under our shared services umbrella, serving as the internal expert on events and conferences
  • Working with community leaders and General Managers to outline their events goals and strategies, serving as a thought partner to our Community Operations team
  • Planning large scale events for many different types of communities, from professional to hobbyist to health and wellness
  • Driving tangible business outcomes including revenue and member growth

Preferred Qualifications: 

  • 5+ years of experience planning and executing on large scale events
  • Ideally, experience with both in person and virtual events
  • Strong project management skills
  • Comfort operating effectively in a remote-first environment
  • A keen eye for what makes a great event

Compensation & Benefits:

  • Competitive salary and equity
  • Health, dental, and vision benefits
  • Unlimited PTO (with mandatory 2 weeks per year)
  • Immediate 401k contribution with a non-elective contribution of 3% from Sylva. This means Sylva will always contribute 3%.
  • Monthly wellness stipend
  • Monthly WFH stipend
  • One-time workplace setup bonus
  • Generous Parental Leave Policy - 16 weeks fully paid for all parents (birthing, non birthing, foster, adoptive, etc.)
  • All employees have access to an EAP (Employee Assistance Program) which provides extended health & wellness benefits
  • Remote first culture

An Insider's view of Sylva

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

The biggest problem we’re solving on M&A is trying to make the acquisition process efficient while maintaining a high diligence standard. Each community is different which makes evaluating each community a bespoke task. We’re trying to solve for this by building a diligence framework that helps us focus on the key areas and metrics that matter.


Director, M&A

What makes someone successful on your team?

Firstly, owner mindset. Caring deeply about the business and our customers is what fuels us to get all the things done and to go the extra mile. That quality of effort then establishes our reputations as individuals and creates mutual trust and respect within the team. This is how we do our best work, together.
