  • Loves to put on events for people- who views them as a place where community is built and where humanity is expressed.

  • Constantly looks around for ways to improve the Dare Space and be aware that the buck stops with you.
  • Is able to delegate tasks effectively to the rest of the team (this can be like herding cats!)
  • Is willing to tackle projects without much guidance/structure. We are three years old, so while we have some structure, you will also be called upon to build structure. You can show us how you have stepped into ambiguous and disorganized situations and brought structure.
  • Has worked for a startup or in a startup environment, and/or have worked in supporting startups to grow. You are willing to work beyond the job description, wear many hats, and roll with constant change.
