Second Shift is a community-centered coworking space in Logan Square that provides a productive and comfortable work space for remote workers, freelancers, creatives, entrepreneurs, and small teams. We are looking for an engaging and responsible community manager to continue to build our community and space.
As the community manager, you are responsible for setting the vibe of the space (it’s a casual and fun place where friends come together). This is done through daily operational tasks such as keeping the space clean, space design projects, spending time with the amazing community members, and creating connections between them. You will also play a significant role in marketing the space through social media, newsletters, and email campaigns.
Although you will be running Second Shift, you will be part of a small remote team. Second Shift is part of a small 6-location coworking chain based in Denver, which has been around since 2011. All locations are neighborhood-focused with a similar vibe. The team members are veterans of the coworking world and started some of the first spaces in the US.
While the community manager role is mainly focused on running Second Shift, the position has opportunities for growth if desired. Some of these projects include opportunities such as leading the Chicago Coworking Alliance, and developing coworking consulting skills. If you are looking to build an expertise and be a future face of the coworking movement then this is a great opportunity.
