Hi #RubyFriends! We’re creating a volunteer-based team to help us get Rubyists excited about RailsConf 2024 and other upcoming events. Please check out the list of positions below to see if any of them speak to you.

  • Social media writer:  ~2-3 hours a week to support our social media process. Your tasks will mostly consist of updating the social copy we have, writing new copy as needed, and occasional related projects. The tools you will use are Asana and Buffer. Experience with these platforms is not necessary as our process is very simple and we’re happy to walk you through it!
  • Social media street team: as needed support of 2-3 social media campaigns per conference by sharing/boosting - we’ll provide you with guidance on timing and copy.
  • Social media butterfly: as needed. Make sure we’re following all the right Ruby influencers on our platforms to stay up to date on community conversations. Experience with/knowledge of the Ruby community is preferred for this role.

The only other requirements are a little familiarity with Twitter, Mastodon and LinkedIn and a burning desire to get Rubyists excited about Ruby events :) 

Perks: Not only will you feel accomplished for contributing to the success of Ruby Central and the Ruby community, as a thank you we will offer you a significant discount to our upcoming RailsConf 2024 and a RailsConf T-shirt!

Apply: If you’re interested, please complete this volunteer application form and we’ll follow up with next steps. Feel free to pass this on to anyone else you know who might be a good fit.

Thanks for your support! <3
