About the SPJA Team

Joining the SPJA team is ideal for those seeking to make a difference in a culture based community, providing not only operational support to the organization but helping to promote a positive work environment for both our small team of employees and large team of volunteers. We're located in the Brookhollow complex, on the border of Irvine/Santa Ana near the 55 fwy and Warner.

We are a 501©6 mutual benefit non-profit team expanding to meet the organization’s growth and ongoing success. What does success look like? Ongoing growth in attendance of our key events. 

Our team values strong consensus-building skills, tremendous personal integrity, and dedication to superior customer service. We consider ourselves to be hands on workers who are self-starters combining excellent communication with strong technical skills. We share a passion for Japanese anime. 

Our employee roles are unique at SPJA, fulfilling two critical functions. First of course is the core role, the second and unique element is our team's transformation into volunteer team leaders during Anime Expo with 100,000+ in attendance event and other events.
