Sales Exec / Account Manager - internet / app start-up. SaaS product.
This is a big opportunity with an internet business start-up that is easily through it’s second round of funding with 350,000+ app downloads across US & Europe and with major brand retailers on board.
And they have only just started.
The app is in the area of horticulture at a household level. It is an idea that was in huge demand before the app was conceived - and you will have a 'why didn’t I think of that’ moment.
They are first movers in the area.
This is a big opportunity as this is their first Sales Exec / Account Manager hire, so you will be in a position to head up the sales or separated account management team after a year.
The Sales Exec / Account Manager role is aimed at retailers who sell plants in any form with the SaaS product.
The role will begin with meeting or liaising with independent retailers or senior management of retailers with multiple stores. Ideally, from the beginning you will have the confidence to meet senior management of the likes M&S, John Lewis or management of 100+ retail stores, although one of the team will of course join you with these type of meetings. Most leads will already be warm.
This is a scaling up phase, so the role will also evolve to account manage the retail partnerships with regular meetings to discuss the analysis of insightful customer data for the retailer on how the app is being used.
They are looking for CRM software experience (e.g. Salesforce) and ideally experience with sales and retailers. An interest in horticulture or start-up mass consumer apps business would be good too.
You maybe a driven recent grade or someone who has retail sales and even horticulture interests looking for something totally new. It is an entrepreneurial start-up so you will need to be driven and enjoy working in a less structured environment.
Their office is London based.
The role will involve travel around the UK and occasionally to Europe.
18-30k plus very good commission.
