We're hiring: Marketing and Events Sales partner (right hand to CEO)

We are looking for someone who will help raise awareness globally.
Position: Marketing and Events sales partner (aka right hand to CEO)
Scope of the role: It's a mixture of executive PA to company and marketing/sales role.
You will help organize and market events and workshops, and support CEO/founder with various marketing/PR enquiries. Initially, the role will be responsible for organizing and selling our public events/talks (4-5 every month). Most of this work is done via computer, and involves lots of calls and emails. If you are comfortable with negotiating and convincing people to be partners and getting them excited about our much-needed message of balance between using technology and being offline, you will love this role.
Your day-to-day activity can include reaching out to 50 potential venues, researching for influencers in a particular city and contacting them, inviting to the events and asking to help spread the word, liaising with journalists, sending speakers' briefs to conferences etc., managing freelancers if needed, checking your weekly KPIs and reviewing your strategy/tactics based on how sales are going.
We're a startup, so you would need to get your hands dirty.
Location: Barcelona, Spain (no relocation package provided), part of it can be done from home
Time commitment: full time (we believe in flexible working, and normally don't control your hours, and are far more interested in the results). If you can do all the work for 1 hour a week, and have results, that's cool. If you don't get results... well, we try harder until we get them!
Salary: base salary + commission + bonus subject to KPIs fulfillment, depends on your experience.
Who we are looking for (must-haves):
Believe in Consciously Digital mission and see yourself growing with the company long-term and willing to practice digital wellbeing principles yourself. There are lots of growth opportunities for the right person.

Speaks and behaves as a human, not as a standard marketing person (sorry, marketing people, no offence, but we hate posts addressed to 'users' and like to see humans behind every subscriber or follower)
Fluent at least in one other European language (especially German or French)
Experienced in complex sales and/or events or project management - minimum 3 years
Has previously worked and lived in several countries, desirably blue-chip organization in sales role
