About the role

About The Role:

In this role you’ll contact and network with startup founders around the world to offer our services and resources, heavily discounted, to the startup ecosystem. We want to help startups get security right from the beginning.

This role involves significant growth potential but is not well suited to people without some startup ecosystem experience. The ideal candidate will come to the role ready to hit the ground running with existing experience in sales, marketing, business development or similar.

What You'll Achieve:

Conduct a large volume of cold outreach daily to early-stage startup founders Network with accelerators, investors, and university programs focused on helping early-stage startups Book meetings with the founders, CEOs, CTOs, and COOs of companies Promote Agency’s offering within the startup ecosystem Respond to inbound requests for our Agency for Startups program. Work alongside our sales team for any relationships that escalate into purchases.

Skills You'll Need to Bring:

At least 2 years of experience working at a startup or for an organization closely related to startups Exceptional written and verbal communications skills to share our story with founders. Experience working within a CRM (HubSpot preferred) to log sales activity and prospects Experience using LinkedIn to connect with prospects Basic knowledge of software and technology sales process

Nice to Haves:

Previously was a founder Worked in VC or early-stage investing Worked with or applied to a startup accelerator Worked at the startup outreach team or program at another tech company

About the interview

  1. Typically starts with a 45 min phone call to see if we're on the same page.
  2. After that we'd love to chat with you in person.
  3. The rest of the process varies greatly depending on the role.
    1. Most roles will have a formal interview which could last 2 hours or more.
    2. Engineering roles will also have a technical interview.
  4. Our preferred situation is when we can get to know you while working on a project for a few weeks together (paid of course). We understand that's not always possible for everyone.
