Turing Festival Ltd. is an events production company that focuses on producing technology industry events. Our flagship event is Turing Fest, Europe's leading cross-functional tech conference, which in 2018 attracted 2,000 attendees and brought 50 of the most forward-thinking tech minds from across the globe to Edinburgh. We also host a variety of smaller events, all focused on the tech startup community (including the Scottish Tech Startup Awards and Startup Dinners) — and we've got big plans for 2019 and beyond.
Here's the short(ish) version: we're building an ambitious portfolio of events designed to help cultivate and nurture emerging tech ecosystems, and forge new connections between entrepreneurs, technologists and investors all over the world. We need smart people to help us do brilliant things in a fascinating space. That's where you come in...
We’re looking for a creative and entrepreneurial B2B marketer to help us build a sustainable growth engine for Turing Fest. This role is focused on driving growth at the top of the funnel: figuring out how to get more people (and, most importantly, the right people) engaged with Turing Fest's content and excited about our portfolio of events.
You’ll be a key part of Turing Fest’s new growth team, working closely with our CEO and Head of Growth. We’re looking for a true t-shaped marketer: you’ll have experience and confidence working across all the usual digital marketing channels (email, social media, content marketing, etc.), along with expert-level skills in at least one specialist area (technical SEO expertise is particularly desirable.)
This is not an entry-level role: we're looking for a marketer with experience, ideas and opinions. You’ll play a key role in driving Turing Fest’s continued growth, so the ability to quickly grok our strategic positioning and audience is essential. Previous experience working with startups and tech businesses is a definite plus, and a strong understanding of the global tech industry (particularly the UK and European SaaS ecosystems) is vital.
We're a small team, so this list isn't comprehensive – the role will evolve as the Growth team does.
Email your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org, and tell us a little about yourself — what have you done before, and why do you want to join the Turing Fest team? What was your biggest success, and your biggest failure — and what did you learn from them? Where do you think your skills are strongest, and where are you keen to learn more?
We're hoping to fill this role by 1 March 2019 — so if you think you might be the person we're looking for, get in touch ASAP!
