Volunteering is the best way to make you way to being a member of our staff! All staff must participate in one year of volunteering, with few exceptions to this rule. Exceptions occur when, we have an area of the staff in need of specific, experienced, help. The following are areas we are currently looking for help in: 

  • Website Maintenance and Management (ideally someone with experience with Shopify)
  • Copywriting 
  • Marketing
  • Program and Event Scheduling

Do understand that Anime Iwai is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization and all positions are voluntary and do not receive monetary compensation. Perks of staff status include access to a staff lounge stocked with food during events, hotel rooms during our three day convention, exclusive trips and parties, staff only swag, priority panel scheduling, and much more! 

If you have experience in the above, please fill out a staff application. For questions, please email operations@animeiwai.com.
