As our campaign manager you’ll be channeling your creativity to manage relationships with technology brands like IBM, Adyen, Google, Adobe, PayPal, MessageBird and Microsoft. You’ll be part of the Sales team and will operate interdisciplinary between the other teams involved, to execute partnerships that make up a combination of exhibiting, branding and content.
We operate on the forefront of innovation, so you should be comfortable stepping into unknown territory on a daily basis. There are no 'standard' partnerships. There is no handbook on innovative campaigns you can read. You'll be challenged each and every day to think so far outside-of-the-box that in time you'll wonder what a box looks like.
What we are looking for is an excellent organizer capable of coordinating multiple campaigns, but who can also think on his or her feet and executes fast. You understand our clients' business and can actively contribute to the creative process of designing partnerships that are experiential, innovative and at times, provocative.
