THE ROLE
We are looking for an experienced Events Manager to join our growing Growth and Demand Generation team to produce memorable experiences for our customers, users, and targeted audiences. You’ll have the opportunity to make an immediate impact at a quickly growing company as you help drive demand and engagement while increasing productboard’s brand awareness through user groups, executive dinners, and, eventually, our own user conference.
 
Working with our Events Marketer in Prague, the Events Marketing Manager will be responsible for telling the productboard story at scale in engaging and innovative ways. If you have a keen eye for strategy and detail and are excited to create innovative, meaningful, exclusive in-person events that also tie to business objectives, we’d love to hear from you!
 
RESPONSIBILITIES
  • Strategizing, planning, and executing all productboard-driven, 3rd-party, and sponsorship events, such as meet-ups, user groups, trade shows, lunch & learns, workshops, speaking engagements, executive dinners, and partner events.
  • Owning event logistics and assets, including budget, brand assets, booth selection and design, swag selection, scheduling CEO meetings and presentations, employee travel and accommodations, etc.
  • Leading the coordination and integration of cross-functional teammates and overseeing all aspects of our presence at events 
  • Refining lead collection and follow-up processes, providing consistent monthly reporting and sharing findings with all productboard employees detailing event performance and overall success metrics for the programs you own.
REQUIREMENTS
  • 3+ years event planning experience.
  • 1+ years experience managing people, especially on remote teams.
  • Proven success working with cross-functional teams and external partners, managing budgets, vendors, and agencies, and executing multiple events simultaneously.
  • Ridiculously detail-oriented with very strong project management skills.
  • Solid understanding of the B2B event landscape.
  • Excellent interpersonal, written, and communication skills.
  • Ability to multi-task and work well under pressure, with tight deadlines and in a fast-paced environment.
  • Available and willing to travel up for out of town events, both domestically and internationally (projected to be between 10-25% of the time).
  • Fluent in English.
ABOUT YOU
  • Positive outlook, fun, and flexible (must be open to earlier hours as the extended marketing team is based in Prague).
  • Proven creativity in bringing to life new and unique experiences for an emerging brand and broader category. You’re excited about the opportunity to create exclusive events with a personal touch - think the best cocktail party you’ve ever been to, with the flair of United Nations diplomats.
  • Results-driven and focused on ROI and learnings. You see events as a tool to drive broader company initiatives, and you tie your work back to larger goals.
  • Customer-obsessed and passionate about creating amazing experiences that make a lasting impact on customers and future users.
  • Knowledge of Eventbrite, Wordpress, Marketo, and Salesforce a plus.
