Jobs at native
Native helps students have the best time at University through amazing experiences. The UK student market is broken, causing a fragmented, disconnected uni life which is letting down Gen Z in a big way - out of 2.66 million students in the UK, nearly half now feel they are not getting the university experience they want. Our event management platform gives Students’ Unions total control over events, and students a simple way to manage their experiences at uni. To compete against external venues and clubs, SUs need an event management platform designed for students, that maximises engagement, ticket sales and user experience - the only platform designed for university campus events.
This is native’s second-ever PM hire - we’re just now taking the step from having a single product, a single backlog, to working on multiple strategies simultaneously and independently. This is a milestone moment for us as a product and as a team, so this is an incredibly important hire - we want someone who can be a real thought-leader and strategy-setter in their stream, and that will come with a huge opportunity to be visible and to progress.
Native’s core technology product is a Ticketing platform, with ambitions to be much more than that to the student community in the future. The Students’ Union on each campus is a key partner to us in becoming a ‘must use’ event-discovery portal. In return, we want to be an easy choice for them for their ticketing services solution: a competitive feature set to large commercial ticketing platforms, but with University-ecosystem integrations and segment-specific features on top. We’ve made incredible progress on the integrations and some really differentiating features over the last year or so, and we’ve had some great momentum signing up SUs this year, but to keep up that progress, we think we need to dive deeper now into industry-leading promotional and engagement features for events. Which will involve some ‘catch-up’ with the existing leaders in the commercial ticketing space, but also, of course, some first-principles thinking to solve the underlying problems that Event Managers and Promoters face in a University campus context specifically!
