THE SPONSOR GROUP

Pink Programming is working with a lot of inspiring companies. We usually collaborate around our Pink Programming Sundays that we arrange together. As a member of the sponsor group, you will help us with keeping good dialogues with our old sponsors, and helping us find new ones! You will be expected to be able to take some meetings with companies during day time (1-2/month). You will also take part in internal group discussions in our chat forum, and occasionally also in video meetings. You need no experience with sponsor work since before – just passion!

You don’t have to be a fluent Swedish speaker to be able to help out with sponsors. But a lot of the companies that contact us write in Swedish, so as long as you’re comfortable with some google translating, we would be happy to have you onboard 🙂

COMMUNICATIONS GROUP

Communication is one of the most important parts of Pink Programming. By spreading our message via our channels and platforms, we make sure women and non-binary people who are interested in programming finds us, and companies who wants to sponsor us learn more about Pink Programming.  A new communication strategy is in place and we need you to help us work with it!

  • We are also looking for creative people who want to work both with digital content and printing material. For example, create simple images in Canva or Photoshop for our social media, make illustrations we can use for example gifs, news letters and stickers, or bring some new life into our merchandise.
