Meet the teams behind this journey

As we aim to reach more of our customers and prospects in the places where they gather, our Events strategy, both first party and third party, is evolving. Driven largely by our first Customer Conference this year, DeepL is expanding our Demand Generation team to include a Senior Events Marketer.  Reporting to the VP Demand Generation, the Senior Events Manager will be hyper-focused on creating event experiences that attract, convert and move business decision makers through their buyer journey.  A collaborative leader, the Senior Events Manager will need to partner with stakeholders in our Revenue organization, Product, Marketing Operations and Creative Studio to ensure that our events are optimized for impact.
