We’re looking for a passionate marketing manager who has strong analytical abilities and is able to lead a dedicated events team to inspire the global tech community.
We’re a young events company, based in Brixton, South London. Established 4 years ago we already run a number of successful events in the UK and the US. We serve to curate and deliver tech conferences and web developer training around the world, with a focus on high quality content and a friendly atmosphere.
This is an exciting time to join the team as we embark on further expansions, with conferences planned in New York, Austin, and Berlin in 2017/18. Our approach to event set up, content curation and experience make us market pioneers and leaders. We’re not an events agency; we design and run our own conferences – everything from conception to researching the market, programming the content, inviting the speakers, building the website, selling the tickets and ensuring everything runs smoothly on the day!
Our conferences include:
The marketing manager is responsible for owning, developing, and supervising the delivery of White October Events’ marketing strategy. We are looking for someone who has the confidence to critically assess our progress so far, and make practical and innovative recommendations for what we should try next.
So strategic thinking will be at the core of this role – your first job will be to understand the data, understand our consumers and the markets we are entering. You will work closely with the Sales Manager and the Event Manager to ensure that opportunities are maximised and events are delivered collaboratively with a focus on quality. You will lead market expansion and help to repeat the success achieved here in the UK.
We’re a small, passionate team that’s going places fast! We pioneered the tech conference landscape here in the UK and are already making a name for ourselves stateside. We’re always learning and hungry for the next thing - we love what we do and what we aspire to be.
We work closely and collaboratively, always looking to help each other out and get stuck into a new challenge. White October Events is an exciting and inspiring place to work, where every day is completely different and everyone’s opinion counts. The tech world is our oyster.
We are an equal opportunity employer and value diversity at our company. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status or disability status.
