Program Chair

Logo.gif?ixlib=rails 2.1

Headquarters: United States


Born from the global movement spawned by bestselling-author Eric Ries, Lean Startup Company coaches a global community on the latest modern management techniques. We help advance Lean Startup principles, which provide a cutting edge, scientific framework for innovation and customer development. It’s about continuous testing so organizations of all sizes can effectively adapt and adjust before it’s too late.

Through our flagship conference, educational materials, and expert faculty, we arm organizations with the entrepreneurial tools necessary to transform how they work. We serve every size company and sector of the economy —- from the the aspiring entrepreneur to high-growth startups, nonprofits, and large bureaucratic institutions. Our engaged community looks to us for practical knowledge and valuable lessons in modern management.


We're seeking a Program Chair who’ll help us bring to the stage the most exciting, empowering stories of putting Lean Startup into practice in organizations around the world. We want to hear about the success stories, the still-working-through it stories, and the failures-that-lead-to-great-insights stories.

You’ll be helping current and future business leaders gain the personal insight necessary to make lasting change in their organizations. You’ll do this by curating engaging programming that highlights solutions to specific Lean Startup practitioner pain points—offering practical solutions to common problems as well as attendee networking opportunities—in the form of keynotes, interactive sessions, workshops, and other activities.

This is a remote, part-time position that allows you geographic flexibility while also giving you the power to positively impact our expansive community.

Join us if you’re eager to help our customers solve the world’s biggest business problems.

We’re seeking an entrepreneurial program chair experienced in the following core competencies:

  1. You’re a detail-oriented event programmer. You’ve worked in the conference space in the past and excel at booking speakers and activities that help resolve specific customer needs and encourage networking.
  2. You’re experienced in coaching speakers and reviewing decks to help ensure their presentations have maximum impact with your audiences. Lean Startup events shouldn’t feel like general tech/entrepreneur conferences; a strong program chair candidate understands the need to guide speakers on their presentations using our customer data and feedback.
  3. You’re well connected in the business/tech/innovation space and understand who the big players are that we should be inviting to speak at our conferences. You aim high and have solid follow-through in your ambitious speaking asks. You have experience managing a multitude of personalities and needs with utmost respect. You’re also an excellent communicator.
  4. You have examples of how you’ve helped large events run smoothly and efficiently and how you’ve helped enrich the programming.
  5. You share our commitment to diversity in our speaker lineups. Lean Startup Co. has taken the 50/50 Pledge, promising that at least 50% of our speakers are female; additionally we pledge to invite speakers who hail from diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.
  6. You think beyond the standard conference format, incorporating different types of sessions that help attendees network and learn in new and interesting ways.
