Job type: Full-time

Hiring from: Anywhere in Europe

Category: Marketing / Sales


As our first sales hire, you will drive our company growth by spending most of your time interacting with people interested in TalkJS. You'll help them understand how our solution can solve their problem and add value to their business.


Demand for TalkJS is quickly increasing to the point that we have more leads than we can manage. This means that now is the time to double down on sales, so we're looking to make our first dedicated sales hire. Our customers are entrepreneurs, product managers and engineers who ask technical questions. This means that some experience with software/SaaS products is required.


You're able to quickly build mutual trust, you're great in (video) calls, and you never let a lead out of your sight. You bring both qualitative and quantitative experience to the sales process. You love software products and you'd love to work with product people all day (both from TalkJS and from our customers).


You'll work closely with the founders to:


Identify high-potential businesses and verticals and bringing them to TalkJS

Structure the sales pipeline and doing effective followups

Have calls and demos with mostly larger Enterprise prospects

Structure deals and making quotes

Strategically and iteratively improve the sales and marketing processes

We're looking for someone who:


Has demonstrable experience selling technology to businesses

Is able to understand TalkJS's software and build great relationships with highly technical customers

Is a digital product geek

Wants to jump on a rocket ship that's just taking off

We provide:


An open, constructive, and no-bullshit working culture

An opportunity to join a startup just as it's about to explode

The chance to build and lead a sales team from scratch and drive our sales culture as we grow

Significant stock options

Flexible working hours

Apply

    We are a B2B software as a service tool that helps people schedule content on social media.

    We are looking for someone to lead our more specialised SEO efforts internally, on a full or part time (at least 2 days a week) basis, with an initial 3-month contract.

    What we're looking for

    We are looking for someone who:

    • Lives their day inside Ahrefs/SEMrush/Clearscope etc

    • Loves to take a very technical and metrics-focussed approach to SEO

    • Wants to take on a challenge, with competitive keywords

    • Can lead the efforts internally from strategy to execution.

    • Has experience in the B2B SaaS space, ideally in a marketing focussed tool.

    • We would like to find someone who is willing to get their hands dirty and can manage the SEO process end-to-end so that you can keep the feedback loops fast.

    • When/if you run out of time to DIY, we can talk about adding extra people or contractors to be able to free up your time, but for us it's important that you aren't afraid to get your hands dirty and that you have recent experience "doing the work", not just setting strategy.

    • You will need to have at least 2-3 hours overlap in working hours (8am-6pm) of Melbourne, Australia time, but otherwise our team is fully remote distributed around the world.

    What you'll work on

    • Your first 1-2 weeks will be focussed on auditing our existing activities and identifying what the quick wins might be for the best keywords to generate revenue.

    • Then you'll work on implementing your thoughts alongside our team, with a focus on a keyword list of 10-20 high quality and high intent keywords you have researched that you think will create the best ROI for us.

    • You'll regularly report on progress as we climb up the SERPs, and likely contribute to various other campaigns and projects our team works on.
