Junior Project Manager

Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Full Time
Fever Originals
Entry Level

Hi, we’re Fever!

Fever is the global leading live-entertainment discovery tech platform, with a clear mission: to democratize access to culture and entertainment.

Fever has developed a proprietary technology that inspires its global community of over 125M people through personalized and curated experiences in their local city, whilst empowering entertainment and event creators to reach new audiences and enhance their experiences.

Some successful examples include the “Candlelight Concert Series” attended by over 3 million guests, the Los Angeles based “Stranger Things: The Drive-Into Experience” co-produced with Netflix, or the “Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience” winner of USA Today's 10 Best Readers Choice award.

The company, present in over 100 major cities across the globe, is backed by leading investors such as Goldman Sachs, Alignment Growth (growth equity investor in global entertainment and consumer tech, led by former Warner Bros and Time Warner), Goodwater Capital (the largest dedicated consumer technology platform globally), Smash Capital (a late-stage venture capital firm led by former Disney and growth equity investors, backer of Epic Games), Eurazeo, Vitruvian Partners and Atresmedia among others.

To pursue our objective, we are looking for bar-raisers, people that want to work hard, have fun, and make history with us.

You will: 

  • Provide a detailed analysis of business opportunities and inefficiencies; proposing changes to operational processes; driving a high standard in customer satisfaction; ensuring high-quality experiences are delivered. 
  • Work as part of a team, pitching and closing events for big partners (Big Entertainment companies)
  • Work with the Fever marketing team to make sure events make an impact: both in terms of ticket sales and coverage

Preferred Qualifications

You are degree qualified, with strong data analysis, oral and written communication skills. You thrive in a fast-paced environment and pride yourself on your flexible, detail-oriented, analytical mindset.

In order to be successful in this role, you will be expected to be an entrepreneurial individual, willing to be hands-on and eager to demonstrate ownership. The role requires a mix of business development and operational experience. Candidates need to be passionate about the entertainment/events industry. You will have to be very comfortable delivering results in an ambiguous environment, being exceptionally detail orientated while looking around corners and thinking bigger about how we create a compelling experience. 

  • 2+ years in a project management role or consulting background. This is not a position for an events background. 
  • Fluent English and Arabic.

  • Highly organized and efficient
  • Curious and keen to push boundaries and try new concepts
  • Great networking skills and the ability to make smart partnerships happen

  • Ability to think strategically when faced with an events partnership brief or with our proprietary data on what events work
  • Able to handle large amounts of work and parallel work-streams
  • Collaborative and willing to get hands dirty and work on all required events tasks
  • Knowledge of promotional tools such as Facebook and Instagram is a plus
  • Strong academic background is a plus

You can expect to join a group of diverse, hardworking team players, where a cultural fit is someone willing to stay humble and learn and can work nimbly. We welcome applications with unusual backgrounds with the expectation that the applicant will have acquired hard or soft skills and maturity throughout their experiences.

This role is located in Dubai.
