Full-time | San Francisco | California | United States
Eventbrite is disrupting a huge industry in desperate need of a shakeup, and our M&A activities are critical to achieving our ambitious global growth plans. A 2015 Deloitte post-merger integration survey of 800+ executives reported that ~30% said these deals fell short of meeting expectations. This, despite ~74% of respondents having formal integration strategies which they believed aligned with the overall strategy and goals of the transactions. Want to help us stay on the right side of that statistic?
The Integration team is responsible for setting up our M&A deals to be successful, during and beyond the integration period. Once target companies have been identified, we partner with Corporate Strategy on diligence, and post-diligence everything from charting how we’ll combine operations, to seeing to it that the integration meets timelines and performance targets, to educating our transitioning employees about Eventbrite and vice-versa. Our work is done when there is no sense of two separate companies.
Our M&A Integration Manager will help run global M&A projects, post-diligence. You’ll be the connective tissue joining the two business together, acting as a consultant, facilitator, communicator, coach and bridge builder. To succeed in this role, you must be a fantastic, emotionally and culturally intelligent cross-functional project manager with skills and knowledge across many business functions and a creative, entrepreneurial spirit - hands on, tenacious and unfazed by ambiguity and a myriad of details. You can be based in San Francisco, Amsterdam, Nashville, Cork or London, but a fair bit of international and/or local travel is expected.
