Job Description:

We organize multiple high-quality events that help us connect with our developer community and champion their' feedback internally. We run a handful of marquee events ranging from private feedback summits to large scale technical dev summits. Every year, we have a strong presence at a large event through rich content tracks and an exciting sandbox presence. We’re also building new engagement programs in community sites. With your events and community experience, you can help us with our developer engagement programs - from owning the end-to-end execution of some of our events to developing and enhancing the company's community strategy. The ideal candidate is a project/program manager at heart, and is comfortable working in a dynamic environment and remaining flexible to the changing needs of the program.

Skill/Experience/Education:
Mandatory:

  • Experience in events management / marketing roles. 
  • Experience prioritizing tasks, managing deadlines, and adapting to changing priorities

  • Ability to strategize at a high level supported by applicable tactics, work smart in a fast-paced, high-pressure, high-growth environment. 
  • Self-motivated, articulate, and possess excellent verbal, written communication and strong interpersonal skills. 
  • Developed budget management, negotiation, organizational, and presentation skills. 
  • Knowledge of the Developer Relations space and prior experience working with developers is a plus. 
  • Excellent organizational and project management skills

Client Description:

One thing we know is that this client, as big as it is, is still setting the standard for not only the product they’re turning out, but for the way they conduct business.

Our client is the global leader in technology, with offices in many major cities. As different as those cities are, you can expect that the personality of each office is the same. Commonalities include bringing people together in the physical work space, outlets for creativity (outside work-related exercises), and a setup for brainstorming on the fly, whenever the opportunity strikes.

What they see in your resume, if you’re selected, is your ability to be an autonomous thinker, and a team player; someone focused, and driven to push the envelope who can also let down their guard and have fun with the team while doing it; someone who has the intellectual capacity to challenge even the most innovative thinkers without the hubris that tends to accompany it. No egos here!

Here, everyone is considered a project owner, and expected to give 100%, even when the path forward isn’t necessarily clear.

Work here, and know you’re working with a Forbes #1 rated company.

Work here, and know you’re setting the pace for digital products globally.

Work here, and find the challenge of your career!

And in case you’re afraid you won’t have time for other things, you’ll be able to take advantage of:

  • Fitness center access

  • Discounts on things like dry cleaning and oil changes

  • Free lunches

  • Convenient commuter shuttles
