Startup Europe. Grown up reporting
We are looking for an experienced commercial marketing manager to join our growing team. The commercial division of Sifted is responsible for all Sifted’s products created for, or in partnership, with paying clients. An important part of our commercial remit is ensuring that these products are successfully promoted and reach the right people – and you’ll be the primary person responsible for meeting this goal.
You’ll be reporting to, and mentored by, Sifted’s marketing director, but will work very closely with members of the commercial team, including, but not limited to, our head of events, head of content and commercial partnerships director.
Sifted is a new media platform reporting on the world of technology and startups in Europe, backed by the Financial Times. In just over two years we’ve become known for our high-quality journalism and fresh viewpoints — and must-read for many founders, investors and people working in startups across the continent.
Our team of reporters, based across Europe, aren’t chasing after the latest funding announcements or product releases; plenty of other sites have got that covered. We are telling the stories that should be told — big startup trends, compelling company profiles and the everyday lessons that come from growing a business and messing up along the way.
Our commercial products currently include branded content, sponsored newsletters, reports and virtual panels called Sifted Talks, we will also be launching a comprehensive series of in-person events in late 2021 and throughout 2022. We take our commercial work seriously, we’re proud of the work we do and the clients work with.
The commercial marketing manager has the exciting opportunity to work across all of our commercial products, figuring out the best way to ensure they meet client – and company – goals in terms of reach, amplification and attendance. You’ll be a true generalist – creating, executing and optimising marketing strategies that will make our commercial products shine.
This is a multi-faceted role in a fast paced environment. You should be a committed generalist, who enjoys being pivotal to the success of many products. You’ll need to be comfortable juggling different tasks and enjoy collaborating with a variety of internal stakeholders and comfortable speaking to clients where necessary.
We have a small-company mindset, but big company goals, and can draw on many of the strengths and benefits of a world-respected brand, the Financial Times. We’re friendly, hardworking and passionate about what we do. We have a flat structure, collaborate across disciplines, and everyone has impact across many areas of the business. We value feedback, honesty and clear communication.
London (although we are open to semi-remote applicants — ie. people who could travel in two or three days per week)
