ABOUT YOU

Are you seeking the next Adventure and with a cool team? Looking to get creative in a multicultural environment to craft great content and spread the word along the way? Are you curious? Adaptative? Articulate? Hard working? Do words like innovation, startup, digital transformation, revolutionary ideas, disruption, entrepreneurs, ring a bell?

 

We need someone who’s:

  • Fluent in English and French (native English is a real plus, other languages appreciated).
  • Passionate about content creation (curious and creative but also articulate and analytical).
  • Tech-savvy, interested about anything related to innovation, digital, disruptive ideas, etc.
  • Calm under pressure and with great attention to detail.

 

Your mission with a team of 4:

  • Participate in the creation and elaboration of the conference program of one of the most attractive tech events in the world (around 150 conferences, 400 speakers, 5 stages).
  • Take part in the strategy of bringing more interaction and experiences on stage.
  • Monitoring and benchmarking: what’s hot, what’s trendy, who’s in, what’s talked about, what’s cutting edge and what’s the next big thing. Long readings and analysis here.
  • Based on the editorial choices, craft and articulate the topics of sessions to be discussed on stage and find the right speakers to speak.
  • Identify potential speakers, source the contact details, invite them to come and be a part of VivaTech. You will need to be convincing and able to advocate for your ideas/choices.
  • Managing the speakers’ arrangements (logistics such as travel/accommodation, registration process, budget monitoring, etc.). Some practical and concrete stuff here.
  • Liaise with the other teams at Vivatech (Marketing/Communication/Press, Ecosystem, Operation and Production, Commercial and Partners). Teamwork is essential.

 

Skills and abilities we seek:

  • At least 2-3 years of experience in content creation (media, event, communication agency or from other fields).
  • Ability to adapt fast given some changing needs and to carry new tasks with little supervision.
  • Multitasking is crucial as well as being autonomous and able to take initiatives.
  • Proficiency in Google tools.
