THE COMPANY

Tech Circus is one of the UK’s fastest-growing event start-ups, spanning; UX, Product, Technology, Blockchain, Web 3, the Metaverse and more. Tech Circus has its roots in its thriving digital network. It operates Europe’s largest UX and Design community, offering monthly educational networking meetups (100-300 attendees) in London, Manchester, Amsterdam and Berlin, which feed into our larger global conferences of up to 3000 attendees in the UK and America. Since the pandemic, all events were migrated online, hosting over 170 events during this time. In the wake of this transition and our ongoing success with virtual events, we opted to create a new arm to the business, dedicated to emerging technologies like Blockchain, AI, The Metaverse and the emerging Web 3.0

As such, this is an exciting opportunity to join a fast-paced and rapidly evolving events team and be instrumental in supporting the expansion of the events offering across 2021 and beyond.
