Excited to join our rocket ship, but not sure that you “tick all the boxes”? No worries - we’re always curious to discover like-minded people! Send us your resume and we’ll reach out if and when something relevant comes up!
This role exists to grow and maintain the number of high-profile/high-value relationships we have in the sports world, whether they be athletes, teams, leagues or agents. We're already working with some of the top players, teams, and leagues in the world, and we're excited to continue growing our presence in the sports vertical.
It's a relationship-led role with sales and account management pieces--you will develop new relationships but make sure retention is as high as possible at all times by promoting the benefits of using Linktree, updating customers on new features, taking their feedback back to our Product teams and giving them an extremely high level of account management.
What you will own:
Lead Linktree's relationships with key users and stakeholders in the world of sports. Success will be measured by the quality and number of new relationships you develop and key users that you onboard.
You will develop strategies to initiate interest and maintain engagement from first messages through to developing key users into Linktree advocates. Living in this space will allow you to gather feedback and deliver that back to our Product teams so we can continually adapt and improve our product for our users in the sports space.
Owning your role doesn’t mean you’re on your own, though - you’ll have peers, leaders and mentors available to help when needed as you innovate your way to delivering results and supporting others. This role works closely with Jeremy on identifying our key customers and cultivating the strategies we use to engage them, as well as collaborating with people like Sammy who drives the music vertical, allowing you to learn from success and failures in your respective markets.
What we are looking for:
A combination of customer-facing roles within SaaS product environments, social platforms, agencies or within sports teams or leagues. This could be customer success, partnerships or sales roles with a rough guideline of at least 2 years of experience within these roles.
It's essential that you've worked with product teams as there are key differences in gathering customer feedback and managing their expectations on what we can deliver back on.
Having strong knowledge and an obvious passion for all sport is also important as we want you to be an authentic advocate for Linktree to current partners, potential partners, and the communities we live in.
Strong relationship-building skills (sales without being pushy), a natural want to collaborate, very good communication skills, and being self-driven will all be must-haves in this role.
Where and how we work:
This role can be based anywhere in the USA, we currently have close to 20 people in the US with offices in Melbourne, Sydney with LA coming next. Our team is spread across Australia, Brazil, Indonesia, USA, Canada, Ireland and Nigeria.
Being globally distributed doesn't mean working to one time-zone and we offer autonomy and flexibility in how you structure your days and weeks. There will be the need for some collaboration outside of a "normal" 9-5 being a global company but we aim to work asynchronously where possible.
Our culture & benefits:
Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:
