Events Intern

Event Production | Austin, TX | Internship

Job Description

About You:

You are interested in learning about event production, running event programs, and creating community through meaningful interactions. You are a detail-oriented and tireless perfectionist.  You are calm, cool and collected no matter what is happening. There’s no task too small and you’re equally happy to carry cases of water, check people in, work with vendors, do research, write web copy, and manage a team of volunteers. You are flexible and can adapt quickly to changing circumstances while keeping your eye on the highest priorities and hold yourself accountable. Most importantly, you’re a team player that’s ready for a huge and exciting challenge and want to learn from an extremely collaborative and high producing team.

About Us:

Notley is a catalyst for social innovation. We unlock new opportunities for impact-minded organizations and changing communities. We’re ecosystem builders and social innovators on a mission to fund and support businesses, nonprofits, and programs making a positive change in the world.

We’re a fast-paced, team-oriented group that is breaking the rules of social innovation. We’re highly collaborative and seek out individuals with unique backgrounds that aren’t afraid to get their hands dirty and build incredible things from the ground up.

“Hustle” is on the wall for a reason.  It’s our mantra. It doesn’t mean frantic or busy, it means a purposefully lean approach to creating something out of nothing. It’s the art of pushing balls downhill or putting yourself in a place to be the beneficiary of serendipity. Hustling is a practice or approach to your work, it’s not a discrete thing you do - it’s a way of living and working.

Founded in 2015 by Lisa Wilson Graham and Dan Graham, founder of, as a way to leverage their own business and investing success, Notley partners with social impact companies and nonprofits ready to scale. To learn more, visit
