In 2009 Brooklyn Boulders (also known as “BKB”) opened its first facility in an old newspaper factory in Brooklyn, NY. Since then, we've grown and evolved beyond what we even thought was possible. Inspired by climbing and community, we're setting out to revolutionize the climbing and fitness industries by integrating them with unique art, culture, and entrepreneurship experiences.
We live and breathe our CORE VALUES. They’re what makes BKB…BKB!
GET WEIRD Be yourself. BKB is your creative playground.
CO-CREATE Trust your team. Results are stronger when we collaborate.
BE RELENTLESS Attitude is everything. Take risks. Fall hard. Get back up.
MAKE IT BEAUTIFUL Create something extraordinary. Be proud to share it. Never stop improving.
MAKE IT AN OPEN HOUSE PARTY Encourage diversity and inclusion.
Combining work, life, and play. We're creating and fostering a diverse community of climbers, creatives, fitness enthusiasts, and entrepreneurs all under one roof. Our community is our lifeblood. Whether it's through special events, climbing classes, or everyday interactions in our collaborative workspaces, our work is motivated by our commitment to providing them with inspiring experiences and exceptional opportunities.
WHO WE’RE LOOKING FOR:
The National Events Manager’s (NEM) primary role is to direct, drive, and innovate BKB’s events strategy and experience across all business functions and facilities, for new and existing concepts alike. With events and new facilities as a foundational piece of growing the BKB Brand, the NEM role will be at the forefront of driving and showcasing our Brand. This includes creating and progressing programming, standards, operating procedures for events, signature events, event strategy, partnership strategy, and overseeing group booking for existing facilities. This also requires product growth including oversight of events revenue, budgets, assets, and participation across all facilities with support from local General Managers and Event Coordinators. The National Events Manager resides on the Marketing Team but works closely with the Product Team.
