Work with a team of incredibly smart, ethically minded, and AMBITIOUS people
Identify prospects & build relationships with event organisers (we are about helping and adding value, and NEVER hard sell)
Book meetings in the short term & build pipeline in the future. This role can progress to a full AE role.

We ONLY hire other smart, ambitious people who LOVE to learn and grow
As a founding team member your input will be absolutely CRITICAL to the success of the company in all areas – including sales, marketing and product.

Years 3+ We are already in three countries… in another 3 years we will hopefully be in 6+... those in our team who deliver and have ambition could be leaders of a region or country. By example, James Humpherson, who joined us at the age of 24 (three years ago), is now General Manager of our Australian operation.
Strong verbal skills, emotional intelligence, resilience and attention to detail and process are essential to the role.
Be ethically aligned and genuinely inspired by our mission.
Desire to smash quotas and goals, and continually raise the bar for your performance
You want to build a career in sales and be responsible for growing a business
Hubspot CRM experience and a marketing or SaaS background are beneficial (although not necessary)
