Headquarters: Bologna, Italy
LocationThis is a remote position in Illinois.
We will (reluctantly) consider candidates in California as well.IntroHi this is Peldi, Founder and CEO of Balsamiq.
Please make sure you read the Working at Balsamiq page first, as Balsamiq is not for everyone.
We believe what we offer in terms of challenging work, benefits and work/life balance is pretty unique in the industry.At Balsamiq, our goal is to "help rid the world of bad software." Part of that effort consists in sponsoring anyone with a similar goal.
We sponsor events, blogs, websites, online communities, podcasts, you name it.
If they're helping people make better software, we want them to be successful.
See our sponsorships page.We sponsored 113 events in 23 countries last year.
We plan on sponsoring around 150 this year, and even more next year.A lot of the events we sponsor allow us to gift a ticket to someone in our community.
We raffled off 31 last year, and plan on doing more this year.
See our raffles page.When we don't sponsor with money, we often give people custom promo codes to give to their audience.
People took advantage of these 347 times last year.If a conference is especially important for our audience, we like to sponsor at a level that gives us a booth, so that we can go there in person.
These booths require a whole other level of coordination to happen successfully: we create graphics for the booth, rollups, custom business cards, etc.A lot of the conferences allow us to advertise on the event program booklet, or add a flyer or some of our SWAG to the attendee's goody-bag.Speaking of SWAG.
We have two online Balsamiq SWAG stores (one in the US and one in Europe) with T-Shirts, mugs, and more.
We give out lots of coupons for those to special customers.We also make branded business cards, sharpies, pins, and post-its regularly.We also make custom shirts and other SWAG for our staff (25 people, and growing) once or twice a year, to commemorate a specific product launch, or for the yearly company retreat.We have optimized all these processes a lot, but sponsoring things is an intrinsically time-consuming process.
Right now they are scattered between several people.We are looking for a marketing admin who can take care of this whole area of the company, and help us make it grow.Starting salary: $50,000/year (negotiable).
We offer great benefits and have a generous profit sharing program.The WorkYour responsibilities will include:drive the yearly budgeting of marketing expenses related to sponsorships and SWAG - the budget for 2017 is $200,000 (it's been growing each year)review and optimize our processes regularlyvet each sponsorship request carefullydeal with all the communication related to each sponsorship requestdeal with sponsorship paymentscreate and give out promo codes, discount codes and extended trialskeep detailed records of each sponsorshipcreate an end-of-year report to post on our blogwork with our graphic designer Mike and with our marketing team to produce collateral like flyers, roll-ups, etc.organize our booth presence at 5+ conferences each yearmanage the event ticket rafflesgive out SWAG store coupons to special customershave business cards madehave sharpies, pins and stickers madework on SWAG for the staff, for end-of-year, retreats and other occasionsIf you still have time, we could use your help project-managing a few other little and medium projects.What We're Looking Forexquisite written and verbal communication skills, in English - knowledge of other languages like Italian, French or German a plusvery strong organizational skills - project Management experience highly desiredconfidence, self discipline, self motivation, attention to detaila strong and fun team playerenthusiasm for learninga not afraid to get dirty attitudea love for solving problems and doing whatever job I can help withability to work under pressure, sometimes with tight deadlineshonesty and trustworthiness around moneyproficiency with computers and tools like online banking, word processing and spreadsheets - experience in graphic design a big plusremote work experience desiredrelated work experience a big plusWe are committed to diversity and especially encourage members of underrepresented communities to apply.
