Event marketplace for hosting, discovering and joining live experiences.

Managing Editor
Melbourne, AU
Job Description / Skills Required

THE CHALLENGE
In the near future, the majority of Eventbrite’s business will come from outside of the United States. The company is currently in a phase of strong international growth, with offices in 11 countries and having powered events in over 180 countries. In Australia, we have ambitious growth plans for the ANZ market, with the potential to enter the greater AsiaPac region. We’re looking for scrappy and fearless team members to be part of this growth story.
We’re looking for a marketer who understands that content should simultaneously solve our customer’s problems and move them seamlessly through the new business and marketing funnel. You must be a world-class written communicator who is able to assemble strategic marketing campaigns through content, webinars, partnerships and social media, in order to deliver high-quality and high-value content to prospects. We’re looking for a driven and passionate marketer who is just as comfortable with B2B marketing principles as they are at writing a killer sentence.

THE ROLE
The perfect person for this position has a passion for developing strong content and understands how to leverage the content, webinars and marketing campaigns to nurture and convert high-value leads. We put a big emphasis on developing top notch content to provide value to our prospects, share our event expertise, and convert them into customers.

S/he will have a track record in developing sustainable content operations and driving audience growth through search, social media, email, and other channels. A successful candidate will have a track record in launching high-impact campaigns on a tight budget, collaborating cross-functionally with stakeholders in marketing, design, and product, and be obsessed with putting customers first.

It’s a complex job, requiring strategic thinking, digital marketing skills, and a dedication to the written word. The reward is equally significant--the opportunity to shape the way a growing business development and marketing organisation does business, and be a key contributor in driving the company that powers millions of live experiences globally.
