Job opening: General Manager, Events
- Tearsheet's conferences are some of the most influential in the financial services and fintech industry.
- We're looking for a new leader to take our events to the next level.
Tearsheet is one of the most influential media brands in financial technology. We’re a modern media firm, combining daily reporting on the financial services industry with events, award programs, and a content studio for our partners. Our articles, podcasts, and newsletters are read widely by decision makers and digital leaders in top US financial services companies and fintech firms.
Over the years, we’ve had thousands of people attend our conferences. If you’re gifted with the ability to strategize, plan and execute must-attend industry events, Tearsheet is hiring its first general manager of its events business. We’re looking for someone who lives and breathes live events. You’ll be tasked with ideating events and formats that suit our audience of top financial professionals. You’ll lead a team that identifies and recruits the best speakers for our events.
Alongside our written content, newsletters, and podcasts, our events bring our community together and you’ll ensure our events are full of VIPs, ticket holders, and journalists. We have a bunch of Fortune 500 sponsors who turn to Tearsheet to reach their target audience -- you’ll work with our partners to execute on their plans.
If you’re interested in joining a firm on the frontlines of technology’s impact on the financial services industry, we’re looking for you to join our team of journalists, editors, marketing, and operations professionals.
This is a full time position.
Anywhere in Israel. We do work from home but we have weekly in-person meetings and strategy sessions at our country club offices in Jerusalem (one of the perks of working here).
Who we’re looking for
Not everyone can head up events at this caliber. To be seriously considered for the role, you need to be the following:
You’re a creator: You have a penchant for visualizing and planning events, and then just getting them done. Your enthusiasm complements your drive for success. You bring a vision to life.
A full stack events owner: From concept to logistics to putting butts in the seats, you’ll own our events lifecycle. You’ll collaborate with multi-functional team members across the company.
Utility player: You may not yet be a fintech events guru but you’re quick and willing to learn a new subject and a new audience. You’re able to move between ideation, planning, and execution.
Alone and together: There is a lot of autonomy to this role, so you should be self-motivated and self-sufficient. There’s also a fair amount of creativity in the role, so you must be able to gracefully receive feedback about your work to successfully navigate within our organization, with our partners, and with our audience.
A true events professional: The events general manager will be tasked with researching and securing venues, planning and managing our events' calendar, negotiating quotes and agreements with vendors, recruiting speakers and prepping them to speak, assisting with event marketing, no holds barred hunger to get butts into seats whatever it takes, monitoring timeframes and budgets, a natural networking capability.
Fintech experience is not required but you have an interest and curiosity in learning about this exciting field. A demonstrable, proven ability to create and execute compelling events is required. You’ve created events at a high level in previous roles. We have deadlines, so you should be comfortable planning and running events within a schedule.
