Senior Event Planner

We're a product-first team on a mission to help grow the cybersecurity culture.

We want to instill cybersecurity good practices to employees in a way that's actually effective, and entertaining enough so that employees don't feel like they're working. Think Duolingo but for cybersecurity.

We created a platform to easily rollout a cybersecurity awareness program: the platform sends chat-based 4-minutes long courses to teams. Following the courses, the other side of the platform simulates phishing attacks, to prepare employees to face hackers — but in a safe environment.

Created in 2020, Riot has raised $15m with top-notch investors (Y Combinator, Base10, Funders Club and Frst Capital), and is now protecting more than 500,000 employees in over 1,000 companies (including Intercom, Deel and Deezer) all over the world.

Cybersecurity is everywhere. It's impacting everyone, everyday, and it's becoming the number one risk to any organization, whether it's a small business or a big firm. Yet, the cybersecurity culture in most companies is a disaster. Hackers are leveraging this by targeting the weakest link: the employees. We're on a mission to fix that.

We are already attending a few key cybersecurity events (IT & Cybersecurity Meetings in Cannes, Forum InCyber in Lilles, Les assises de la cybersécurité in Monaco…) and we are now looking to formalize a business-oriented and impactful events strategy for the company.

We are seeking a highly motivated Senior Event Planner to drive strategy and execution of select Riot events - both internal and external. Reporting to Jérôme Berloty, our VP Sales, this role requires a customer-centric focus and a strategic mindset while managing the conception, execution, management, and post-event reconciliation of select events.

Travel Requirements: This position requires travel 5-10% of the time.

What You’ll Do:

    • Develop event strategy and plan to drive awareness, market leadership, and pipeline growth - mostly across Europe and North America at first.
    • Manage all aspects of CX events from pre-event planning, on-site execution, and post-event analysis.
    • Build and manage event reporting based on KPIs, including return on investment and various marketing and sales matrix.
    • Work closely with Riot executives, marketing teams, sales teams, product teams, and technical teams to make sure we leverage the event as its best (collaboration on list of attendees, cold calling strategy, marketing strategy).
    • Own and manage event budget, PO creation, and invoice handling.
    • Think creatively and provide ideas and suggestions to improve and enhance the event experience and their overall impact on our business.

About you:

    • You're a doer. That's core to Riot's culture.
    • Solid experience in building and managing events strategy, preferably in a technology environment.
    • You have excellent written/verbal communication skills and are an experienced presenter.
    • You have advanced collaboration, organization and analytical skills.
    • International experience is preferred but not a must.
    • You have a full professional proficiency in English and native in French.
    • You're an explorer and don't mind getting out of your comfort zone.
    • You don't need to be an expert on cybersecurity, but you need to be motivated by the mission.
