Hello friends of Girls in Tech,

Last summer, we began a recruiting process to look for more volunteers to help us run the operations of Girls in Tech Vancouver. Without the help of our volunteers, Girls in Tech would not be the same! We are so grateful to have found such an amazing group of women to be part of the Girls in Tech Vancouver Management Team since then. Please take a minutes to Meet the Team when you have the chance.

We are always looking for engaged, self-starters, and energetic people to join the team. The following open positions are still available to fill for the Girls in Tech Vancouver Management Team. If there is a role that is not listed but that you think would be of value for Girls in Tech Vancouver and that aligns with our core values, we welcome recommendations. (Note that this these positions are volunteer positions since we are a non-profit organization.)
