BSides Barcelona is an Information Security Conference. We’re a volunteer
organized event, put on by and for the community, and we truly strive to
keep information free.
We need good, reliable folks, we have Volunteer opportunities on for
load-in/set-up all the way through load-out/tear-down, the day of the
conference. We have one team of Volunteers divided in 2 shifts of 6 hour each.
The opportunities are:
- Front desk: it’s entitled to perform check-in, sell BSidesBCN swags, provide general information to participants
- Room guard: it’s a stable, fixed presence in the room. It’s duty is to keep a watchful eye on our assets and participants
- Record man: Record the session
- Runners/Floaters: their responsibility is to be willing to perform any required, last minute, task
- Social Media Manager: their responsibility is to manage a dedicated social media account in order to reply to users, give status updates, be able to communicate effectively the event and its atmosphere
The only requirement for Volunteering, besides being 18 or older, is to
perform the required job with a smile and a helping attitude.
In order to be a Volunteer we require a commitment to work a 6 hours. Bear
in mind that we will try to keep the Volunteer schedule on time, but
delay may happen so extra work time may be required. After your shift
ends, you’re allowed to attend the conference as a participant. This way
you can still be able to work your shifts and enjoy all of the
conference. If you have questions before signing up please feel free to
send an email to with the subject “Volunteering”.
All volunteers will receive a special volunteer t-shirts to be worn during
your shifts. If you’re really willing to put in the time, we really want
to reward you for your effort. Come share your community spirit with
the community. it’s a great way to meet new folks, make new friends and
learn new skills! In addition to our staff, we need about 20 volunteers
to make this wonderful event for around 200 participants happen. Be one
of the few, the proud, the BSidesBCN Volunteer!
