Global Community Manager

THE ROLE

We are fortunate to have an incredibly engaged and diverse community surrounding our products, friends working with us in over 30 countries and next-level brands that enhance our experiences. With that canvas you will be responsible for developing and implementing a strategy that will grow, nurture and leverage the existing community and propel us forward to even greater things.

As the Global Community Manager you will be the face of ETV to all of these different stakeholders. To say that we are looking for a people-person would be the understatement of the year. You need to be equally comfortable in pitching a strategic partnership to a multinational lifestyle brand as you are guiding a local community manager on how to throw kick-ass experiences in their city or sharing a few drinks with a veteran-guest and understanding what you can do for them. Oh, and it’s pretty good if you are comfortable in an airplane seat as well – ‘cause there will be a lot of that.

In summary, we are looking for an incredibly outgoing individual that has the strategic and structural know-how to leverage their creative ideas in an effective and scalable way across the globe. It will be hard work, but in return you will get the chance to make a real difference for products that actually matter to people, travel the world and make friendships that will last you a lifetime.

RESPONSIBILITIES

  • Develop, implement and manage an international community manager strategy
  • Identify, negotiate and manage strategic partnerships
  • Develop and implement global experience strategy (promotional events)
  • Manage our PR agency to develop and implement influencer strategy
  • Develop reward/loyalty program for returning guests
  • Oversee customer service activities

REQUIREMENTS

  • A genuine passion for traveling
  • Bachelor’s Degree in a relevant area
  • Minimum 4 years of professional experience
  • Experience in leading large international teams
  • Track-record of securing high-level partnerships
  • High commercial acumen and negotiation skills
  • Superior presentation/public speaking skills
  • Entrepreneurial and creative spirit

  • Flexible, independent, self-starter
  • Excellent time management and organizational skills
