Work With Us
DDD Perth cannot happen each year without a committed group of volunteers. There is heaps to get done both in the lead-up to, and on the day of the event itself.
Currently, Membership Applications are open, and applications will be accepted by committee from AGM (21 February 2023) for a period of 3 months (until 21 May 2023).
A member of DDD WA Inc is a year round volunteer who contributes to the organisation of the conference throughout the year. By contributing year round, our members work together to create the inclusive, affordable, accessible and open conference that DDD Perth is known to be.
Members are welcome from all parts of our community. There is a little more about each team below, where you can contribute. Please, have a read and if you are interested in joining our welcoming membership, fill out the application form below to apply.
Membership Volunteer Opportunities
This team is responsible for our public facing technology, including primarily our website. If you are interested in development (DDD Perth is probably a good place...) from our voting platform through to our build process, you would be very welcome to join the team.
Our website and other codebases are available on github, so you can have a look to see if you want to work in this team ahead of time.
Logistics team members curate the attendee experience, from admission right through to catering. The team is responsible for our attendee experience — the conference layout from check-in to sponsors to room layouts, what food to provide and how best to do it, and how best to include any extra like childcare or quiet room. If you want to level up childcare, the food, coffee, signage, even the venue itself, this team is the right place. This team is a busy, on the ground team, responsible for making the conference come alive.
The Media and Brand team are responsible for our awesome graphics and theme, as well as any merch or swag you see from us. Have some ideas for the day? This team is needed in the lead up, from as early as possible.
🤳🏻 Social Media & Communications
Our newsletters, witty one-liners and the rest don't write themselves. Come help us reach the masses! This team is responsible for public-facing content creation.
👩🏼🏫 People (Volunteering)
This conference takes a village to organise, and this team looks after the volunteer experience. From recruiting through to training, this team helps all other Directors find enough team members to get it done.
Looking after our sponsors is such an important part of the conference, as we simply couldn't go forth without their generous help. This team is responsible for onboarding, as well as coordinating the nitty gritty to get us to conference day.
👩🏻🏫 Conference Content
The Conference Content team is responsible for finding and coordinating our keynotes, brainstorming the content outline for the conference, and looking after our wonderful speakers. From mentoring first time speakers to booking flights for our keynotes, this is a team that curates the speaker experience. Think our conference should have a workshop track? This is the team for you.
