Blackbird is hiring an experienced Events Producer responsible for the delivery and success of Sunrise Aotearoa and Sunrise Australia each year. You will lead both events from end to end and be intimately involved in all aspects of the projects.
Sunrise is our love letter to founders. It is a gift to the startup ecosystem from Blackbird. Our objective is to create energy and momentum for Australia and New Zealand’s startup ecosystem by celebrating what it means to be a founder and to leave a small dent in the world. If we are successful, millions of people from across our countries will choose to join our startup community, and technology and innovation will become critical drivers of cultural change in Australia and New Zealand.
Sunrise has been our flagship event since 2014. We’ve hosted it on islands, piers and disused train yards. Our ambition for Sunrise is massive, and we’re looking for someone who can lead the project and drive a critical strategy in Blackbird’s ecosystem development program.
You will lead all aspects of Sunrise. Here is a brief overview of the role and your responsibilities:

We run two Sunrise events annually - one in New Zealand (currently in September) and one in Australia (scheduled for May 2024).
To sum it all up, Sunrise belongs to you. Resourcing will change every year, and it’s up to you to direct your resources, adapt when things change, and, above all, do everything in your power to ensure Sunrise achieves its objectives.
