Job Description

We are looking for 1 more experienced champion to join our sales team.

We are one of NY’s hottest startups in the sports technology space, disrupting the $60B sponsorship industry. Many of our clients call us for sports marketing. We are looking at adding 2 more full-time sales hires to our current team that includes 3 in sales and 3 in engineering. It’s an amazing position for the right person who has proven success in sales, wants to see career growth, lots of responsibility and the ability to make a major impact from day one. Ideally you enjoy sports and have experience selling to the “marketing” title.

Our investors include NBA all-star Baron Davis, Oxford Angel Fund, 500 startups, and multiple VCs. Our clients include Anheuser Busch, Vitamin Shoppe, Vitacoco and many more (mostly) B2C product based brands. Our team is smart, fun, focused and a great group of people to work with, all based in NY.

We are looking for someone with experience demoing software, qualifying inbound leads and closing sales on a call. We want someone who can connect the dots and think out of the box. Ideally, over time you grow within the company, but the option of staying an individual contributor is also possible.

You must work well as a team and independently, be confident to hit targets, as well be a team player and want to get involved in the product road-map and giving feedback to the tech team.

What We're Building

We are a marketplace connecting brands and rights holders, i.e. athletes, agents, teams, leagues and events.

Our current focus is on the imperfect industry for athlete endorsements. We have developed tools and functionality similar to other leading influencer marketplaces allowing brands to find, contact and partner with the perfect athlete. This includes creating RFPs, tracking social media, being able to conduct cash /equity/ royalty/ product deals and using our management tools. As we cater only to athletes, the most coveted of all "influencers" we have a competitive advantage. We have developed relationships with athletes and many leading agencies to give brands unique access to this elite and largely unreachable pool of talent.

We have also developed valuable SAAS tools for large brands and agencies.
