We're looking for an experienced Marketing Activation Specialist to oversee inbound and outbound demand generation marketing programs focused on inspiration, acquisition, engagement and activation of competing teams, partners, and external stakeholders. This individual will also develop a life-of-prize content and thought leadership strategy, in concert with the Program Leads and Domain Leads, for both the prizes themselves, and the broader topic areas of Energy, Climate Change, Biodiversity, and Conservation. In this role, this individual will be responsible for defining and executing integrated digital marketing, acquisition and event campaigns designed to raise awareness of XPRIZE Carbon Removal and XPRIZE Rainforest, two of XPRIZE’s largest and highest-profile incentive prize competitions. To succeed in this role you must have the ability to drive high-quality traffic to our digital platforms, generate prize registration acquisitions, and partner interest. Our dream individual will be responsible for devising and executing multifaceted marketing campaigns around key milestones throughout the lifecycle of each prize, with purposeful funnels, regularly revising them to maximize the quality of leads. You will be expected to not only mastermind, but also coordinate a variety of tasks, including making sure the creatives and copy are up-to-date across campaigns, and running plenty of experiments. This role calls for a goal-oriented mindset, with the ability to plan ahead, but focusing on immediate outcomes aligned to the foundation and domain goals.
This is a pivotal role for the success of our competitions and programs. This person will work closely with the Program Lead of each prize to oversee and execute marketing and communications activities for the whole lifecycle of each prize. The role is perfect for an experienced demand gen marketer, focusing first on building high-quality acquisition funnels of competing teams, and later on building out storytelling concepts around the competing teams and their innovations, with the goal of generating sustained interest in the competitions and in the broader topics of carbon removal and climate change, and biodiversity and conservation, amplifying the competition goals, and the role of the prize sponsors.
This role is a shared role between two key XPRIZE programs: XPRIZE Carbon Removal, and XPRIZE Rainforest. The role’s time allocation should be split roughly 50%/50% between these two projects. Reporting structure will also be shared: reports day to day to XPRIZE Carbon Removal Program Lead and XPRIZE Rainforest Program Lead, and also less frequently to the VP Marketing as a connection to the broader XPRIZE marketing and communications team.
