Job Overview

The Challenge

In the near future, the majority of Eventbrite’s business will come from outside of the United States. The company is currently in a phase of strong international growth, with offices in 13 countries and having powered events in over 180 countries. In Australia, we have ambitious growth plans for the AU/NZ market, with the potential to enter the greater AsiaPac region. We’re looking for scrappy and fearless team members to be part of this growth story.

The primary objective for the Head of Marketing is to develop, direct and oversee Eventbrite Asia Pacific’s marketing/business strategies and activities to achieve revenue, sales and profit targets.

The team

APAC is one of Eventbrite’s fastest growing and most important markets, where every year we empower tens of thousands of event organisers to achieve their goals using Eventbrite’s platform. The small but mighty Australia-based Marketing team is responsible for driving continued business growth in the region across all stages of the marketing lifecycle. This includes brand awareness, customer acquisition/retention, and demand generation, with a dual focus on both the Sales and self-service areas of the business.

The role

Reporting directly into the General Manager – APAC, you’ll be a key part of the region’s leadership team, and a key contributor to the overall strategy – ensuring continued rapid growth and commercial success.

You’ll be responsible for providing leadership to the Melbourne-based marketing team; the marketing strategy and ensuring effective execution. You’ll also work closely with our international marketing teams based in our San Francisco headquarters and other Eventbrite markets.

We’re looking for a strategic, commercially-minded and creative marketing leader, who can lead, inspire, and mentor a team. You will be a strategic and analytical thinker, who blends deep experience in B2B marketing with creative energy that inspires action. You keenly understand acquisition marketing and demand generation, and have a strong sense for how to use a range of marketing channels to drive growth throughout the customer acquisition funnel and beyond. You have led teams before, and are comfortable operating in markets with multiple customer segments and verticals as well as a range of customer value tiers.

You are comfortable and confident when faced with ambiguity, excited to roll up your sleeves, figure it out and make it happen. You disrupt the status quo, go all in, and constantly innovate and create.
