Marketing & Event Specialist - VertiGIS
Join a small, dynamic marketing team, collaborate across departments, and drive lead and revenue generation.
Reporting to the Director of Marketing, North America, you will be joining a small but mighty marketing team that is driving lead and revenue generation in one segment of an international business. We will count on you to work closely with our Sales, Partner, Product Marketing, Digital Marketing, and Graphic Design teams to make things happen.
There are two areas of emphasis in this role:
- Campaigns: Reaching both prospects and customers through the execution of marketing campaigns is key to lead generation and revenue growth. You’ll be working with the team to execute quarterly campaigns through the creation of emails, landing pages, distribution lists, content, customer stories, and event promotions via our marketing automation platform, Act-On, and tracking progress in our CRM.
- Trade Shows: From large scale conferences to intimate user group events and sales-focused tradeshows, you will be expected to help ensure everything runs smoothly for presenters and attendees. You’ll own the overall event calendar and manage staff registration, the event experience, branding and sales materials, hotel bookings, and anything else that happens to pop up. You will also plan, manage, and execute online events such as webinars, live streams, and recorded content.
If you’re excited to join a growing software business and help us implement best outbound marketing practices, we’d love to hear from you. Please note that we are searching for candidates that are based in Victoria, Vancouver, and Kelowna.
