Hello and welcome to DAYBREAKER! We are a global morning dance community of 500K+ and growing and we wake up and dance 💃🏽 in the most iconic locations around the world (top of the World Trade Center, Sydney Opera House, Smithsonian museum, the White House and so many more). While the city sleeps, we break the day ☀️ with energy and intention with a community of adventure-seekers, mischief makers, and collective joy enthusiasts.
We are a Brooklyn-based family. Three best friends (wife/husband (we met on the dance floor at Daybreaker early on!) and college best friend (and our now 2 year old daughter 👶)) are leading this dance movement with a tiny but mighty team. We are looking for more than just epic skills and experience - we are looking for a mindset and orientation focused on kindness, service, optimism and joy. We're here to do IMPORTANT work of getting more people to dance, play, have fun, connect, make friends and come home to their self-expression — especially post pandemic.
WHAT WE DO
Our bread and butter are weekday morning dance and wellness events in iconic spaces around the globe (daybreaker.com), and in 2020 we launched a dance event series on ZOOM reaching 250k+ attendees through Daybreaker LIVE (Daybreaker.com/live), and launched the first ever membership platform to practice joy: DOSE by Daybreaker. (dose.daybreaker.com). We are taking on the BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goal) of making "practicing joy" as ubiquitous as brushing your teeth. Because joy is contagious and collective joy is world-changing.
We are a substance-free community and are reimagining how humans socialize (in the morning / without alcohol or drugs).
We are experience designers, creatives, storytellers and community architects with a results-oriented team that is set on building a lasting movement that continues to support local communities for years to come.
We look forward to connecting with you. And whether you end up on the team or not, know that these decisions are so hard to make and you're still EPIC and we hope to see you on the dance floor practicing joy with us.
Ps. You may have also seen us on the Oprah x WW tour in 2020 opening every stop of her sold out arena tour right before the pandemic. Peep our 2020 Recap Video here: https://vimeo.com/517331331
THE ROLE //
As a member of the Daybreaker team, you will be welcomed into our global family, dedicated to spreading love and mischief around the world.
As a Daybreaker Event Producer & Community Architect ("Producer" for short), you are the face of Daybreaker in your city. You will be responsible for building an engaged and passionate community, producing mind-blowing experiences, and promoting the events to relevant audiences. You will be supported by the Daybreaker HQ team, who will coach and train you to be the best Producer you can be. We’ll provide you with the skeleton of what you need to produce Daybreaker events, grow your community, and uphold the global brand. It’s up to you to bring the hustle, passion, and creative zeal to create unique and refreshing experiences that participants will love. You'll be in charge of finding venues, sourcing talent and performers, cultivating a volunteer production team, coordinating with vendors and sponsors, creating local partnerships, and producing monthly events. We’ll provide marketing, communications, operations, branding, sponsorship, financing, and PR support so that you can concentrate on creating experiences that participants will never forget.

The ideal Producer should live a healthy, conscious lifestyle. You should have a big heart and love dance music. You should be detailed and hard-working — a savvy and competent professional. You should be active in the startup/tech industry, the health & wellness world, and/or local arts & culture community. You should have a big network of millennials you can tap into, already be leader in your community, and know how to produce a great event start-to-finish that immerses people and transcends the commonplace. Ideally (but not required), you are a Burning Man participant.
