This is an incredible opportunity to build out a core function at Webflow and engage directly with our passionate community, our customers, and our partners. 

Reporting to the Director of Corporate Marketing, you will work with stakeholders across marketing and cross-functional teams ranging from executive leadership to sales, community, and product teams, as well as external agencies and vendors. You'll work with our internal teams, industry organizations, and vendors to define unique and thoughtful event experiences that create measurable impact to the business.

  • Develop a strong understanding of the Webflow brand and our core audiences; partner with our brand and creative teams to deliver high-quality, consistent events that reflect our brand beliefs and identity. 
  • Lead, influence, and work across teams internally, including a broad range of peers and executives. Provide status updates for various audiences - including executive stakeholders, management, and peers.

  • Propose and manage event budgets, vendor invoices, contracts, and SOWs. 

That said, these responsibilities are just the start! At Webflow, we encourage you to contribute wherever your interests take you — and shape your role accordingly.
