Pink Programming is growing! Are you the new Event coordinator we are looking for?

Pink Programming is Sweden’s largest network for developers that identify as women, transgender and non-binary. Our vision is a gender-equal IT sector where female, transgender, and non-binary developers are as common as male developers. Our main activities are building safe spaces for our target group to enjoy coding, such as Pink Sundays (our coding meetups), Pink AW and Camps as well as delivering courses for companies to become more inclusive employers in the IT industry.

The nonprofit organization has today two employees and over 100 volunteers, and we are now expanding our office in Malmö with an Event coordinator with communication skills. The position is a 12-month project assignment (with the possibility of prolonging), full-time, starting in March-April.
