  • Develop and recommend the event budget, marketing plans, and objectives.
  • Coordinate across all relevant internal teams and act as visible SME for everything event-related throughout the year.
  • Interface with relevant external parties to successfully execute events (e.g., venue management, temp labor, retail store management, photographers/videographers).
  • Understand objectives and goals for each event, ensure execution drives towards those goals, and measure/monitor results to track impact.
  • Be dynamic and flexible in adjusting to a broad range of activities and responsibilities.
  • Travel, as required, to support successful event execution.

  • Experience coordinating with a range of internal functional teams, especially cross-channel marketing teams.
  • Comfort interacting with a range of external stakeholders, including retailers and the media.
  • Interest in the outdoors is always a plus, but not required.

What will make you successful:
  • Amazing attention to detail and project management skills.
  • Flexibility in adapting to changing priorities and execution-related situations.
  • Creativity sufficient to truly delight everyone that experiences our events.
  • Ability to effectively partner with a variety of cross-functional peers.
  • Curiosity: Always seeking to understand “why”. Always looking to make things better.
  • Passion: You are driven by a love for what you do.
  • Optimism: The ability to bounce back quickly when something doesn’t work.
