Partial Remote – Employee, Full-Time
US – DISTRIBUTED
At Fishtown Analytics, our mission is to empower analysts to create and disseminate organizational knowledge. Our product, dbt, is used and loved by thousands of companies with more joining every day. We’re looking for an events manager to host an event lineup that serves the existing dbt community and brings new folks into the community.
Today, our events lineup includes in-person training and Meetups. In 2020, we’ll be adding our first user conference as well as speaking and sponsorships at relevant trade shows. This role will start out intensely hands-on, but as our event lineup grows, you’ll begin to build a team of people that bring the dbt brand to life in-person.
Who we are
Fishtown Analytics was founded in 2016 by three former RJMetrics employees. While at RJMetrics, we developed strong opinions on how companies should practice analytics. Specifically, we believe that:
Code, not graphical user interfaces, is the best abstraction to express complex analytic logic.
Data analysts should adopt similar practices and tools to software developers.
Critical analytics infrastructure should be controlled by its users as open source software.
Analytic code itself?not just analytics tools?will increasingly be open-source.
If these sound like ideas you can get behind, we’d love to talk to you.
In this role you can expect to…
Own our events strategy from research and selection through to execution and follow-up. You’ll set goals, manage the budget, track ROI, and gather attendee feedback to make sure we’re always improving.
Lead execution of all our in-person events (training program, Meetups, user conference, and tradeshows).
Develop pre-event, at-event, and post-event marketing plans working with your co-workers in community, product, and sales. Lead creation of event communications and promotion.
Build relationships with external partners, vendors, and potential sponsors. Negotiate terms and contracts.
You are probably a good fit if…
You have in-depth knowledge of technical and logistical aspects of live production (likely the result of having 5+ years of event planning or field marketing experience)
You’re capable of managing multiple deadlines and projects with very little supervision
You have a true love for live events and all the unpredictabilities that come with them
You’re willing and able to be on the road at least once a month
You’re always thinking about how to do what you just did, better
You’re experienced in producing events for different purposes?brand, learning, lead-generation, etc.?and know when to apply the right playbook.
You know what makes an event great, but you also have a lot of untested ideas you want to try out. When you get people into a room, you want to make an impression.
You have an edge if?
You have proven success in executing 1000+ person events (and staying on budget)
You have previous experience with open source/developer events
You have experience creating content and programming for technical audiences
A Final Note!
At Fishtown Analytics, we are committed to hiring and cultivating a diverse team. If you are on the fence about whether you meet our requirements, please apply anyway!
Fishtown Analytics is headquartered in Philadelphia, PA. While the majority of our team is based on-site, we have a growing number of distributed team members. We are open to this role being based anywhere in the continental United States.
