United Fray is seeking a full-time Event Manager who wants to be part of a dynamic growing company that helps Make Fun Possible through sports, events, fitness, travel, and media.
We’re on a mission to never stop playing. As an Inc. 5000 company, we’re growing rapidly and developing from a social sports company to a full lifestyle community. This is a high growth, high opportunity position!

They must also understand the responsibilities of such a role and must be hungry to learn. Most importantly, they cannot be a stranger to doing whatever is necessary to get the job done.
