GSA marketing manager (1).png

We are looking for a marketing manager who doesn't take titles too seriously. We could also call this role the CMO, the Head of marketing. But we don’t care much for titles, we care for great ideas and stellar results and a well connected startup community.

We are looking for someone who could be the butter to our bread and the jazz in our communication :)

If you have a great track record in branding and digital marketing, have an analytical mindset but can also write mind blowing copy in English, if you are a fierceful DOer and interested in working in an environment where no two days are alike, than we would love to hear from you!

  • Graphic creation (in Photoshop)

  • Analytics (translated into tactical steps to improve reach and sales)


Experience (nice to have, but if it's just a heavy interest, that would also do)

  • Basic HTML (for website update and email marketing)

  • Email marketing (segmentation, database management, badass writing skills in translating a LOT of content to a SMALL email that people open and read and react to it)

  • Event management experience (creating meetups, making sure people know about it and show up and what needs to be done to give them a great experience)

  • You worked before in a fast paced startup environment

  • Worked on global project before


What you’ll get

  • Flexible holiday plan


What you’ll do

  • Global Startup Awards marketing framework and Central European Startup Awards marcom verticals

  • In short, our marketing in general

  • Our brand strategy, with aligning the tone of voice and design system to an already existing brand

  • Communication strategy aligned to all platforms

  • Lead and execute our content creation (writing posts and tweets, event descriptions, blog posts, video scripts, interview questions, PR materials, presentations, email templates etc.)

  • Manage our website and social media channels

  • Setup, run and analyze our social media and PPC campaigns

  • Event management (we have small events of 50 people to a red-carpet event of 400+)

  • Email marketing

  • Research our market and influencer, approach them, keep in contact with them and engage them

  • Handle our PR on an international level (write releases, handle and extend our PR database and follow up on our media presence)

  • Keep in contact with our partners

  • Constantly come up with ideas on how to improve our communication and campaigns.

We don't do it yet but we should? Awesome, we trust you on it to make it happen


Personality traits/ who you are

  • Outgoing, perky with a big smile

  • Able to think in complexity and handle a lot of various tasks at once

  • Good at balancing stress and deadlines

  • Create solutions, not problems

  • Work on your own, create your own tasks and make sure they are delivered by the highest standards

  • Ask for help when help is needed

  • Have a good eye on design and never let a pixel go loose or a typo ruin a post

  • We are international and open minded. You are too, in your work and in your personal affairs within the team
