East of Ellie is looking for a full-time, in-house logistics guru to work closely with our team to create captivating virtual/hybrid and in the future, IRL events. The ideal candidate will not only possess excellent planning skills but also the ability to work independently and collaborate with a team and has a strong background in all things event production.

Total. Planning. Nerd. You geek out over spreadsheets, timelines, and deliverables.

A process junkie, you believe organization, workflow management, and team communication are essential to the planning process. You seek out improvements to increase efficiency and improve event outcomes.


Logistics will be at the core of your day-to-day to-do’s. Vendor management, internal project management, one day you could be sourcing a venue in New York City, stay-at-home kits with unique gifts for event attendees and the next executing a large scale virtual event on Zoom. The sky’s the limit for this event logistics position.

Multi-tasking and juggling multiple projects at one time is a must in the events world. You’ll need to be a creative thinker and problem-solver to excel in this role.

Project management is a superpower for you. You excel at communicating and tracking critical milestones and deadlines.

Clearly communicate and have a plan for when Plan A doesn’t work out. Complete projects by coordinating with team members and communicating progress to proper stakeholders.

Effectively engage and communicate with clients and team members in a collaborative work environment.


4+ years of corporate event planning experience, event agency experience strongly preferred.

Expert knowledge of production and event execution. Production background and or virtual experience is a must.

The ability to take a company’s brand guidelines and execute creative event initiatives that meet the clients’ criteria but also demonstrate out of the box thinking.

Work with vendors to make our plans for events (IRL + Virtual) come to life.

Self-motivated independence and a drive for quality and consistency.

Ability to love and be loved by all things Google Doc related.


Please send your resume and cover letter link to Only serious applicants will be considered.
