Event Manager



Cambridge, MA, USA
Posted on Monday, April 29, 2024

TileDB is looking for a highly organized and results-oriented Event Manager to own and execute on our global events strategy. Our events include a balanced mix of horizontal and vertical events, including conference sponsorships, meetups and executive dinners. Reporting to the Director of Demand Generation, this role will work closely with our executive team and other go-to-market stakeholders to orchestrate the delivery of first-class, on-brand, and memorable event experiences for our prospects.


We build the TileDB Cloud Database. TileDB was founded in 2017, after several years of implementation at Intel Labs, to solve use-cases at the Broad Institute and MIT. TileDB has raised over $50 million in funding from high-profile investors, with our most recent funding round ($36 million Series B) announced in Oct. 2023.

We are a remote first, distributed team with employees in the USA, Europe, and South America. Our headquarters are in Cambridge, MA, USA and we have a subsidiary in Athens, Greece. The nature of this role will require some occasional travel to the Company's headquarters in Cambridge, MA, and/or to various event locations."


We are no strangers to events; we have done a lot - and learned a lot. Our audiences love them. Now it is the time to take this channel to the next level; you will be instrumental in elevating our events strategy to new heights of delivery, brand experience and top-of-the-funnel impact.

In your first 15 days, you will familiarize yourself with the 2024 Events Calendar, past events and existing event processes. After 30 days, you are expected to roll-up your sleeves and get your first on the ground action.
