In this role, you will help run high-profile events at big-ticket conferences — think SXSW, Cannes, etc. — from conception to execution. You’ll ideate and create unique branded events, proprietary experiences and stunts that are fresh, unique, relevant, and drive brand affinity. You’ll steer the entire project lifecycle — event vision, concept, budgets, vendor and sponsorship negotiation, creative, execution, and promotion plans. Plus, you’ll work hand-in-hand with the marketing department to develop winning paid-media plans and coordinate promotion.
In short, this is a unique opportunity to take full ownership of events at major entertainment venues, music festivals, and entertainment hubs… all while being proud of the company you are representing.

Ideally, you have 4+ years of event marketing/agency experience, preferably within the digital music/entertainment space. Not only are you a seasoned events manager with project management experience, but you also have a significant marketing background, including paid digital and social media experience. You have a knack for creative and out-of-the-box campaign ideation. B2B and B2C event marketing experience and project ownership are must-haves, as is a talent for developing 360 marketing plans that promote high-profile events where absolutely everything must go right. You’re a self-starter with an independent work style. Oh, and you love to travel for work; this position requires plenty of domestic travel — frequent flyer miles abound!
