Experiential Marketing Manager

Developer Relations

Timescale is looking for an Experiential Marketing Manager to join the Developer Marketing team. You’ll be responsible for the development and execution of events and interactive experiences designed to build the Timescale brand further, support the Timescale business, and provide opportunities to experience Timescale products in a memorable way.

In this role, you’ll closely partner with Content, Communications, Developer Advocacy, Growth, Product Marketing, Design, Engineering, and external agencies to develop innovative and engaging programs and initiatives. You’ll shepherd our brand and think creatively about ways we can grow affinity among developers.

You’ll be in charge of events globally - managing all aspects of event production, including vendor management, logistics, activation programs, and staffing. You will come up with creative ways to engage with developers at these events so our event presence becomes the talk of the show. You will also partner with Developer Advocacy to track open Calls for Papers (CFP) and proactively enable engineering and product teams to submit high-quality CFP submissions.

You will oversee the creative distribution of content through paid and earned channels. You will identify and partner with external channels that drive the highest impact. 

In case you couldn’t tell, Timescale is a developer-first company 🎉. Your programs and outbound communication should reflect knowledge and appreciation for developers (in other words: no marketing fluff or jargon). We love developers, and you’ll fit right in if you do too.

This role is remote, but English language fluency is a requirement.
