Learn more about Purism.

Scope of work

Working in close collaboration with the marketing and finances departments, a main responsibility will be to ensure we can be present at the most relevant public sales events to facilitate our business development and sales objectives as efficiently as possible, saving Purism time and money for staffers needing to attend conferences, tradeshows and hackfests, while also establishing and maintaining relationships with event organizers.

Your core responsibilities would include:

  • Helping plan and budget events to attend, exhibit at and sponsor for the year: which events and why, and who goes where when.
  • Estimating and keeping track of costs of events attended (marketing + finance), and validate expenses incurred if needed.
  • Collecting information on events, analyzing sponsorship or exhibitor brochures, negotiating custom (or multi-event) deals with conference organizers.
  • Keeping track of deadlines and following-up with stakeholders (attendees, budget approvals, marketing collateral design & production, demo equipment to be prepared, special offers to be activated, etc.).
  • Maintaining the events attendance calendar.
  • Coordinating the logistics of a team attending an event (who arrives and leaves when, with what equipment, where the team hangs together, etc.).
  • Booking individual or group transportation (flights, trains, a big pick-up truck, etc.) and accommodation (ex.: hotels, rentals, etc.) for Purism staff, so that they can focus on their work (instead of the entire team taking a productivity hit, scrambling at the last minute, and potentially not getting the best deals that can be had).
  • Transmitting the relevant booking information to the individuals, and assisting them with their travel in general.
  • Planning and purchasing supplies/equipment to be carried or shipped, as needed.
  • Reporting to the finance and marketing departments on costs incurred and success of events.
  • Working with enterprise sales to curate leads and make introductions.
  • With the help of the marketing team (if required), writing on our blog about the events before and after our team’s attendance.

While not required, candidates with a passion for public relations and an understanding or interest in business development, live event coverage through social media, or exhibiting, may find an interesting path for personal growth by participating directly in some of these events (subject to department preapproval).

Requirements

  • Extremely well-organized and detail-oriented.
  • High personal integrity and strong sense of duty.
  • Experience with travel and expense sites and tools.
  • Spreadsheets don’t scare you.
