Front Conference Volunteers

Preparing the Front Conference takes a lot of time and effort and it is also an exciting challenge. In order to balance our workload we are looking for some additional volunteers to support our team. The following jobs need to be done:

  • As a Communications Quality Guardian you make sure our content to be published is consistent, error-free and cleanly formulated. Additionally you mitigate trademark violations or any brand misuse.

  • You love email campaigns that inspire? Great! Sounds like the perfect match: As our Email Campaigner you do take care of the content and offerings in our regular email campaigns. You create and maintain email templates that align with brand style guidelines.

  • You know the latest tricks to find the balance between frequent yet not spammy communication? Help us to build a vibrant and engaged social media community spreading the word about Front Conference. As our Social Media Manager you organise, create and publish social media campaigns on the different channels. You review the performance of previous activity (posts, events or other interaction) and integrate this knowledge into our activity strategy.

  • Do you like succinct written copy that conveys the right message to the reader? So you might be the right person for our role as Storyteller! You draft, update and edit and provide consistency in voice of written content.

We need people who can commit to helping us during the year here in Zurich. So if you can spare a few hours every month to get involved, we’d appreciate an email from you telling us which role you'd fit and why. Just apply here.

And what do you get out of it?

Note that we all work for the thrill of it, no money involved :-)

But we have some other benefits:

  • Create something good: the Conference is a way to give back to the community. It helps juniors learn and seniors further develop, plus it provides a great opportunity for people to get to know each other. We all know how hard that can be in Switzerland...
  • Work with established professionals in the Swiss digital sector: our team members all have a great network in Switzerland and abroad.
  • Learn a new skill: We are all experienced in the digital field, but try to structure the work so that there is lots of room to try out new things and help each other out.
  • Plus, of course, you get to learn at Front Conference without having to pay for a ticket. The conference is an excellent platform for researchers, developers and designers to present their projects, latest research and technologies in the fields of Web technologies, Web design and UX/HCI (Human Computer Interaction). Each year, we invite national and international speakers – leading experts in their fields, practitioners and academics alike.
  • Plenty of opportunities to network with fellow professionals.
  • In addition to offered lunches and coffee breaks, we organise a warm up party, a speaker’s dinner on the pre-conference day, a conference “Mighty Mingle” on the first conference day and a chill-out evening on the last day. You are invited to attend all, we cover it all!
  • A lot of gratitude from speakers and attendees.
