We are looking for a seasoned marketing leader to assume overall responsibility for global demand and client marketing for our virtual community and conference platform and to ensure the success and growth of an integrated cross functional team. This role reports to the VP of Marketing and works closely with the VP of Sales and other members of the executive leadership team across sales, marketing and product in order to create, manage and execute on demand creation priorities.

- Lead generation: Work closely with product marketing teams and inside sales teams in support of our two largest businesses (conference and community) to segment and qualify priority prospects and offers and to establish quantitative targets that support revenue growth. Partner with support and sales to identify cross-sell and upsell opportunities within the customer base. Drive continuous performance improvement through the identification, documentation and implementation of digital demand creation best practices. Work with other marketing teams to extend the reach of marketing automation impact (e.g. pipeline acceleration, lead nurturing, customer retention). Implement best practices in database management to increase data integrity and market reach across geographies; support marketing database strategy and data requests (e.g. segmentation, list pulls).
- Leadership: Lead and collaborate with regional/field/segment marketing teams in their efforts to generate new leads and move existing pipelines. Manage internal marketing managers, external vendors and budget to accomplish goals. Partner with Leadership to manage customer interaction, including online/offline communities, events, customer advisory boards, user groups and executive roundtables. Educate sales on the role of demand generation within the existing customer base and evangelize the strategic capacity of modern marketing across Bevy.

We welcome candidates from traditionally underrepresented groups to apply. We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better product for our users and the communities we serve.
We are a small but powerful team, dedicated to achieving our mission to bring more community to the world.

We set ambitious goals, and do what it takes to achieve them, while making sure that we take care of our own personal health and mental wellbeing. We will want you to be ready to take on a lot of responsibility with guidance and mentorship along the way.
