About HYPE Innovation

HYPE supports idea and innovation managers with software and services to build and grow their innovation programs. Our software gives companies a tool to collect, manage, evaluate, and execute ideas while our expert consultants provide support along the way. Our clients are the boots on the ground who turn everything upside down in their companies. They're the ones that continuously challenge the status quo. And we have the honor to work with them.

 

We love working closely with our clients, and to do that, we've spread ourselves around the world. HYPE has offices and employees across the globe, with our European headquarters in Bonn, Germany. This job is attached to the headquarters but there is no requirement to be based in Bonn to apply.

 

During the last 10 years, HYPE has developed an event series to cater to our clients. We run events both for innovation managers from organizations across the globe as well as idea managers in the German speaking part of Europe. On top, we selectively sponsor external events to generate leads and spread the HYPE.

Now we need you to help us continue and expand the best events on the planet! Ok, “on the planet” is pretty bold, but some ambition helps!

 

What You'll Do

The event team is composed of two people – the Head of Events and the Event Manager for German events. We need you as a third person in the team to assist these two people but also to be in charge of a couple of projects on your own. All the missions listed below will be supervised by the Head of Events who will provide guidelines and the necessary training.

 

You will:

  • Be in charge of our internal team building events: Summer Party and Christmas Party which means:
    • Find venues and activities (research, requests for availability, etc.)
    • Coordinate the service providers and logistics
    • Communicate about the events with the targeted audience (invitations, practical information, reminders etc.)
    • Handle registrations
    • Coordinate the event on the D-day

  • Be in charge of our Product Release and Town Hall Meetings which means the same tasks as for our internal team building events. Note that these events might take place online instead of physically. You would then be responsible for the production of these virtual sessions.

  • Be in charge of our lead generation webinars (Innovation and IDM 360° series) which means:
    • Align with sales on the goal, target and date for each session
    • Find speakers, guide them and run test sessions
    • Set-up the registration platform and hosting tool
    • Collect the target’s contact information
    • Communicate about the event (invitations, social media with the support of the social media team, practical information, calendar invites, reminders, follow-ups)
    • Handle production and tech support during the webinar

  • Assist our product managers and project leaders for our product release webinars which includes:
    • Align with them on date(s) and requirements
    • Support them to set-up the webinars if needed and invite our clients
    • Be the tech support during the webinars

       

  • From time to time, assist the Head of Events and the Event Manager for German events with punctual tasks as a team effort.


Your Profile:

Are you looking for a great company to work with alongside your studies? Let’s talk!
  • You are an open and outgoing person (because this is how we are).
  • You can work on your own, but we are also team players (a requirement for our Unicorn team!).
  • Home office is your thing? With a team leader based in France and a colleague in Frankfurt, plus other colleagues in marketing spread across Germany, UK and USA, regular days at the office are uncommon.
  • You have excellent organizational skills.
  • Time is on your side – keeping deadlines is your second nature.
  • You know how to prioritize competing assignments, and you know when to ask for help.
  • Excellent communication skills in English and German, in both speaking and writing (additional languages is a bonus).
  • You are not scared of working with modern marketing automation and event management systems.
  • You have some design knowledge to create visuals, this is a bonus but not a requirement.

 

Why HYPE?

  • We work at the forefront of the digital transformation; our clients are the ones who make this worldwide change happen. This is an extremely dynamic and exciting market!
  • We serve a global client base, and all employees enjoy the cosmopolitan flair that it brings.
  • HYPE is not a startup anymore, but not an enterprise either; it brings together the best of both worlds: we still know each colleague personally, decisions can be made quickly, and the company is able to adjust to new market situations. But we are not scourged by venture capitalists and uncertain whether our business will actually become a success in the end, we are already there. Also, there are clear structures and opportunities to make a career, not just to “have a job.”
  • We get fantastic feedback for our events. However, to make sure it stays this way, we constantly need to innovate, review today’s formats, and look for new opportunities. This is a creative job.
  • HYPE’s company culture is extremely inclusive and family-like. Among the various teams within HYPE, the marketing team is particularly close to each other. We are spread across three countries, but that doesn’t keep us from meeting regularly across the year.
