    • Responsibilities include working with and communicating across multiple team functions within Frontastic and within partner organizations.

    • Work with partners to drive joint marketing initiatives through events and other marketing campaigns.

    • Work with the partners to develop partner success metrics, including specific KPIs that drive customer adoption and revenue growth for both Frontastic and the partner.

    • Work closely with the Frontastic product and client success teams to ensure smooth on-boarding experiences and servicing processes of acquired new customers using partner integrations via the Frontastic platform.

    • Deliver compelling capabilities demonstrations of the Frontastic platform and address high-level technical questions, serving as a subject matter expert around how customers use Frontastic to build seamless user experiences.

    • Act as a primary point of contact/product owner for solution and partnership.

    • Plan, organize, lead, and control balanced revenue growth, continued customer awareness and customer satisfaction with a long term, multiyear focus.

    • Serve as a role model, source of inspiration, and coach for less experienced peers.

    • Partner with leadership in cultivating an environment of teamwork, openness, creativity, and continuous improvement.

    • You may speak at meetups and conferences

    WHO YOU ARE

    • You reside and work in Europe

    • You are a great salesperson with sales methodology knowledge. Your extensive experience will allow you and others to skillfully negotiate wins internally and externally while maintaining strong relationships.

    • You have a passion for getting things done, carry out responsibilities with minimal direction, enjoy working hard, are full of energy for challenges, and seize opportunities more than others.

    • You have an open and honest personality with a good sense of humour and a confident appearance

    • You're good at networking and getting in touch with others quickly

    OUR VALUES

    Our team strives to constantly improve itself following these values:

    • Make an Impact: We’re here to change the industry and we’re in it to win it. We’re incredibly focused and our main focus is on customer success. We boldly go out of our comfort zones, we support each other and we love doing what we do.

    • Thirst for Learning: We’re addicted to learning and we learn from everything. We embrace our failures as they’re something we can learn from and only help us to improve. We think differently and we know that change is good. We’re curious and innovation leads the way, we're constantly on the lookout for new ideas that can help our customers (and the world).

    • Diversity Rules: We’re proud to be a diverse team spread across the world. We empower the under-represented and we build a safe community for everyone to be themselves while holding each other to account when needs be. We use asynchronous communication as we’re a remote company and need to be aware that we’re not always online at the same time.

    • We're In This Together: As colleagues, with our customers, and with our communities, co-operation and collaboration is key. We help one another as much as we can and we care for each other. We celebrate our successes together and we strive to find the right balance in our lives.

    • Transparency First: We make all information as public as possible and we’re direct (as well as truthful) in all our communications. We don’t just explain what we’re doing but why we’re doing it. This is how we create positive relationships and move forward together.

    HOW WE WORK

    We're a 100% remote-native company. We make intensive use of tools like Slack or video conferencing. We try to find a good balance between focused work and communication or in other words between asynchronous and personal communication.

    We don’t have fixed expectations regarding working hours and it's normal for us to be able to take care of private matters during the day - e.g. visits to the doctor or picking up children from school.

    We meet four times a year in person: one five-day retreat and three two-day retrospective focused meetings.

    COMPENSATION

    For this particular job we are offering to pay between 80.000 € to 100.000 € based on experience and skills. Optionally you can get Virtual Shares from our Virtual Shares Options Program (VSOP) as part of your compensation. In addition, we offer 28 vacation days and €200/month co-working stipend. Since we currently work from 9 different countries (and counting), it's very difficult to offer consistent  benefits beyond that. We strive to find a good balance between local laws and conventions, and a general fairness. And we're always open to your suggestions.

    WE'D LOVE TO HEAR FROM YOU!

    If this job sounds interesting to you, please try to point out where you match to our requirements in a short tweet-style "why-me" to [email protected] and have your CV attached. Do you still have questions? Then don't hesitate to get in touch via the same address!

  • Imagine a product that reached over a million users without a single copywriter. That same product is at the edge of where careers are headed, where every person becomes their own brand with limitless growth potential ahead. That's the opportunity at vidIQ – an infinite market, a large and highly engaged customer base, and the chance to help build vidIQ's content growth engine from the ground up.

    Intro
    Why this Role?
    1. Sell a product people love that solves real problems: Creators around the world use vidIQ to manage huge 8 figure subscriber YouTube channels – but your friends and family just starting out on YouTube use it to gather ideas, find opportunities, and dig into what's working for these mega channels.
    2. Help build the foundations of conversion marketing at vidIQ: As an early member of our growth team, you'll be instrumental in helping define how our copy and conversions drive sales.
    3. Right time, right place: We are small enough that you will have true ownership and the feel of a close-knit team. But, we are established enough to have hit profitability and product-market fit, which gives us a fun and challenging field to play on!
    4. Leave better than you came in: We are always learning at vidIQ. We learn by doing. We learn from each other — and we are incentivized to attend conferences, obtain certifications, and take training courses.
