join the team creating
Canada’s leading events
For a decade, Embrase—the company behind Startupfest, FWD50, Scaletech, Resolve, Pandemonio and the Elevator World Tour—has earned a reputation for unexpected approaches to compelling content. From a pitch contest in the Eiffel Tower, to a panel of grandmother judges, to unique interactive formats, to online spatial networking, to gatherings on tropical beaches, we reimagine what’s possible.
Director of Marketing
Full time | Starting January, 2021
Managing fluid, predictable marketing operations across all of our audiences and conferences requires great communications skills, an understanding of modern social and marketing platforms, and the ability to manage many concurrent projects smoothly.
The Director of Marketing creates and executes a marketing calendar. This includes:
Content publishing across the web and social networks (blog posts, newsletters, social updates.)
Running promotional campaigns and conversion funnels for event attendance and ticket sales.
Creating marketing materials and brand design for the rest of the organization to use.
Tracking performance, reporting progress to the executive team, and iterating based on what’s learned from analytics to consistently improve the ROI of marketing efforts.
This is a position with significant growth potential, and the successful candidate will not only execute hands-on marketing campaigns effectively, but also discover new ways to increase audiences, test messages, and create compelling offers that expand the business.
Full time | Starting February, 2021
To deliver amazing experiences we have a technology stack that includes websites, ticketing, community platforms, and internal tools to manage speakers, attendees, and other groups with whom we collaborate.
The successful candidate will create and maintain product roadmaps for event websites, community tools, and internal systems. This includes:
Working with the executive team to outline requirements, budgets, and other constraints.
Defining user stories and feature sets in clear, easy-to-understand terms.
Evaluating internally built and third-party alternatives for cost, reliability, vendor lock-in, and revenue opportunities.
Finding external technical resources to assist in product development.
Working with internal and external resources to deliver prototypes, documentation, a testing plan, ongoing maintenance and monitoring, analytics, privacy and data collection policies, marketing collateral, and a product roadmap.
This is an excellent opportunity for a mid-level product manager who wants to advance their career while working with a global audience and a world-class team on digital government, startup ecosystems, and other emerging technology fields.
Wordpress and Web Developer
Full time | Starting February, 2021
The Wordpress and Web Developer designs, programs, and maintains the online presence of conference web properties such as FWD50 and Startupfest. The basic tasks involve building and maintaining the Content Management System (CMS) for these events, but also extending the CMS to make the management of events more efficient and differentiated.
The role involves daily use of task management systems (Slack, Wrike) and handling inquiries from the event team related to the website, as well as participating in 1-2 meetings a week either in person at Embrase offices or via video/audioconference.
You’ll have three main jobs: Managing event websites; training others to use what you’ve built; and creating new functionality atop Wordpress.
