What Asana is looking for in applicants

On the heels of Asana's exponential global growth, we are hiring an EMEA Event Manager in Dublin/London to join our growing EMEA Marketing team. The EMEA Event Manager will work closely with the Revenue Marketing team, internal partners and third party agencies to help build and execute our events programme across the region. You'll work with others across Asana to create event experiences that delight, inspire, and educate our audiences, bring our brand to life, and help expand our reach around the globe.

This is an exciting opportunity to build and grow an important part of the business. You will develop programs to increase brand awareness, engage prospective customers & customers and drive strategic high impact event marketing initiatives to support the EMEA sales team. If you're someone that obsesses over the attendee experience, loves digging into data and metrics, and enjoys brainstorming event formats as much as perfecting the tiniest details, we want to hear from you!

  • Produce events from concept through completion: identify opportunities, define strategy and goals, manage vendors, source diverse speakers and audiences, and keep track of event metrics 
  • In close partnership with Sales and Revenue Marketing, develop and expand the scope of the events program to drive new leads, nurture existing ones, generate pipeline and bring our reach to new markets
