Job Description

Founded in Silicon Valley in 2009 by Marc Andreessen and Ben Horowitz, Andreessen Horowitz (known as "a16z") is a venture capital firm that backs bold entrepreneurs building the future through technology. We are stage agnostic: We invest in seed to venture to late-stage technology companies, across bio + healthcare, consumer, crypto, enterprise, fintech, games, and companies building toward American dynamism. a16z has $35B in assets under management across multiple funds.

We’ve established a team that is defined by respect for the entrepreneur and the company-building process; we know what it’s like to be in the founder’s shoes. We’ve invested in companies like Carry1st, Dapper Labs, Mainframe, Oculus, Overwolf, Sandbox VR, Singularity 6, Sky Mavis, Roblox, RTFKT, Yield Guild Games, Zynga. Our team is at the forefront of new technology, helping founders and their companies impact and change the world.

The Role

With a16z moving to the cloud, and great founders starting companies all over the world, the Tech Week initiative allows a16z to build ecosystems and meet founders where they are. In August of 2022, we led LA Tech Week which drew out 16,000 participants across 300+ events. The Tech Week Partner will work with key ecosystem partners and internal stakeholders to build out the initiative, creating a weeklong convergence of a tech ecosystem and featuring local startups, investors and companies with the goal of fostering connectivity and thought leadership within the city.  

To join our team, you should be excited to:

  • Product marketing: You will develop the overarching marketing strategy for the program which incorporates communications, content, brand, and social media skills. You will also need to implement, execute, and measure this plan to reach outcomes.
  • Program management: You will be in charge of managing an initiative that reaches 16,000+ attendees and involves collaborating with hundreds of stakeholders in the entrepreneurial ecosystem. This requires strong strategic skills and vision and the ability to oversee many moving-parts and not let details fall through the cracks.
  • Partnerships and Business Development: You will oversee a business development strategy that involves growing our sponsorship base and also driving close to ~1,000 event partnerships that are at the heart of Tech Week.
  • Understanding of the venture and startup ecosystem: This role requires a thorough understanding of the startup and venture ecosystem in multiple geographies, including LA, SF, and NYC, so coming into the role with this knowledge is a huge plus.  
  • Executive leadership: You will be interfacing with venture partners both internally and externally, and will need executive communication skills and the ability to develop buy-in across the board.
  • Cross-functional Teamwork: You will be working cross functionally with many groups, so the ability to work well with others while driving towards milestones is imperative.
  • Events: Although you will be working with an events counterpart/agency, experience and fluency in planning in person events is a huge plus.

Minimum Qualifications

  • 7+ years of experience in a marketing role with demonstrable results with ecosystem partners.
  • You live for relationship management. We are in the relationship business and take a long view of relationships — you will need to be polished, persuasive, and amicable.  
  • Excellent written, presentation and verbal communication skills which can be leveraged across all communication media (digital, social, in-person, and email/print).
  • Strong stakeholder management, organizational and project management skills.
  • Experience managing and executing multi-channel marketing campaigns across digital, social and event channels.
  • Ability to persuade, influence and build trust at the executive level.
  • Have a strong network across the venture and startup industry.
  • Experience in a fast paced startup environment is preferred.

The anticipated salary range for this role is between $241,000 - $281,000, actual starting pay may vary based on a range of factors which can include experience, skills, and scope.

This role is eligible to participate in the a16z carry program and various discretionary bonus programs as well as benefit and perquisite plans including health, dental, vision, disability, life insurance, 401K plan, vacation, and sick leave
