About this Role

We want to connect athletes to what motivates them.  There are two parts to this for the role:

  1. Help find and display the best running and cycling routes in key global cities.
  2. Ensure that all major running races have a home on Strava

Reporting to the UK country manager, but with an international remit, this role offers the opportunity to demonstrate strategic thinking, relationship building, organisational excellence, as well as show passion for running and cycling. The successful applicant will work with Strava community associates and influential athletes in selected territories to ensure that we can help our community find great routes, and ensure the top running races have a home on Strava.

This is a full-time office based role for a 3 month period.  Based in Strava’s European office in Bristol, occasional travel may be required.

Responsibilities Include

  • Build a database of the top running events.  Help to build their home on Strava using the product tools at your disposal.
  • Curate the top running and cycling routes in Strava’s top global markets.  The successful candidate will help formulate and execute a plan to ensure key cities have community sourced routes, with descriptions and photos.  Here’s some stimulus from Amsterdam.
  • Reporting. Report back on progress with the route and running race areas.
  • Develop Strava’s Playbook for working with the community to curate routes.

About You

  • You understand the authentic Strava athlete. You love to run, ride, swim and/or do other activities.  
  • You have a marketing mind. You can plan, build and execute marketing partnerships. You know how to throw a party, whom to invite and how to get people there.
  • You are a rockstar. Creative, outgoing, social, and positive. You are scrappy and entrepreneurial and figure out a way to get things done and get people to help you.
  • You can work in Bristol for 10 weeks to 12 weeks from the start of July.  The role will be office based.
  • You can organise.   Tasks, information, people.
  • You have an international mindset, have traveled abroad and ideally speak a foreign language (German, French, Spanish, Japanese, Portuguese).

Your Background

  • You can demonstrate that you are a self-starter, possibly through a degree or business.
  • You need to know and understand Strava: as a brand and a product.
  • A solid grasp of Geography would be extremely helpful. Do you like maps and have an interest in exploring places to run or ride?
  • You are proficient in Strava, spreadsheets, presentations, and have had prior experience communicating professionally via email.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
