Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: US only

Category: Marketing / Sales


DESCRIPTION

We are looking for a US native agent to join our business development team. As part of our business development team, you won’t be required to do any door-to-door brick and mortar sales activity. Instead, you’ll be involved in the following activities:

  • Talking with web agencies and handling the relationship with them (part of our success is due to the relationship we establish with web agencies, marketing agencies and web professionals in general, as we offer them support on the legal needs of their clients);

  • Managing our new Partner Program (we've recently launched a certification program for web professionals willing to resell our services to their clients in order to better support them in this process);

  • Growing our client base in the “value-added services” area and pushing for upgrades and up-sells with the already existing clients.

Location

  • Remote.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Fluency in English (US native-level English strongly preferred as you will be working with the US market);

  • Communication and marketing skills;

  • Knowing the web, how it works, its technologies and mechanisms;

  • Understanding how the web works technically, at least on a surface level (you need to understand how HTML, CSS, Javascript & Co. work);

  • Willingness to learn and utilize emerging technologies;

  • Being sales-oriented and capable of effectively closing deals;

  • Attention to detail;

  • Motivated self-starter, with a willingness to learn and work in a fast-paced environment;

  • Ability to adapt to changing situations;

  • Excellent time management skills;

  • Passionate, positive and a creative spirit.

Added values

  • Additional languages (French, German, Spanish) are more than welcome;

  • Interest and/or experience in tech & software.

BENEFITS

  • LEARNING BUDGET - We’ll sponsor your professional growth by providing a budget that can be used for courses, events, workshops and books.

  • COMPETITIVE SALARY - We offer a highly competitive salary when compared with other Italian startups since we have high standards on finding the best people to join our team.

  • REMOTE WORK - You can work from one of our offices in Italy or remotely. We are used and fully structured to onboard people who rather work full-time remotely.

  • RETREATS - Twice a year (summer and winter) we get together in amazing destinations to work, bond and enjoy team building activities.

  • FLEXIBLE WORKING HOURS - We have a remote work policy for those not under a remote contract.

  • WORK EQUIPMENT - We’ll provide an equipment allowance so that you can perform at your best.

  • GREAT WORK ENVIRONMENT - Work in a casual (no dress code!) but continuously growing environment.
