Position Overview: We are seeking an experienced Events Manager to provide crucial support in planning, organizing, and executing a variety of events, with a primary focus on client and prospect-specific offsite events.

This role requires a dynamic individual capable of handling event logistics, managing vendor relationships, and ensuring seamless execution from start to finish.

  • Utilize technical tools such as MS Suite, Salesforce, Pardot, HubSpot, and Marketo to streamline event operations and communications.
  • Communicate effectively with senior stakeholders, providing updates and post-event reports to evaluate success metrics.
  • Ensure all events reflect the company’s brand and messaging, maintaining high standards of quality and professionalism.

Qualifications:

  • 3+ years of experience in event management, preferably in a corporate or agency setting.
  • Proven track record of successfully managing events independently and collaboratively.
  • Technical proficiency with event management tools and software (MS Suite, Salesforce, Pardot, HubSpot, Marketo).
  • Ability to travel 20-30% of the time, primarily within North America, with occasional flexibility for international travel.
  • Strong organizational skills and attention to detail, capable of handling multiple projects simultaneously.
  • Excellent communication and interpersonal skills, comfortable interacting with senior executives and external partners.
  • Creative problem solver with a strategic mindset, able to innovate and adapt in a fast-paced environment.

Additional Information:

  • This position is remote-friendly with occasional onsite requirements for events.
  • Immediate availability preferred, with the first event scheduled in early September followed by several in October.
  • Candidates should demonstrate a blend of hands-on execution capabilities (“soup to nuts”) and strategic thinking, contributing actively to the creative process and overall event success.
