We’re AVIXA (Audiovisual & Integrated Experience Association), and we’re seeking a dynamic Digital Community Specialist to help manage AVIXA Xchange, where all things audiovisual come together in one vibrant digital space. We’re not just a community; we’re a hub of innovation, connection, and creativity. Join us in shaping the future of AV tech!
AVIXA is the trade association and professional society that serves the audiovisual industry worldwide. In a time where the way that we communicate and experience the world has undergone such a notable evolution, technology is more integrated – and more global – than ever, and we’re here for it.
Our vision is to serve as a trusted hub for the industry to connect, grow their knowledge and business, and be inspired. Our AVIXA Xchange initiative is focused on not just reaching but engaging with the AV industry around the world.

With over 17k users and growing, the AVIXA Xchange is brimming with potential that it needs you to help unlock. You’ll work most closely with the product team to optimize the experience; the social and digital content teams to create cross-pollination opportunities; and the global industry engagement team to connect even deeper with our network. You’ll use data to monitor trends, spot (and seize!) opportunities, and get ahead of what our community needs and wants most.
Speaking of data – key success metrics in this role will include things like how much time people spend with us, how often they return, and how we’re interacting with the rest of our product portfolio.
We’re leading a notable digital transformation and we need an incisive teammate with a discerning eye to help us on this journey. We expect and will empower you to bring modern ideas that we may not have yet considered.
Who are you?

You thrive in delighting our members with engaging experiences, awesome content, and meaningful interactions. As well, you can combine data, user feedback, and your instinct to make daily decisions that fuel our community’s growth and success.
Whether you’re an AV aficionado or eager to dive into one of the cooler tech worlds, your enthusiasm is key. We want you to share your passion and/or demonstrate your ability to learn fast. We want you to always be looking to learn more about digital trends, audiences, and community management best practices.
