About the role

The company is growing quickly both in terms of revenue and employees. It’s a great time to join because we’re still early - we’ve raised a total of $35M from investors including SignalFire and Rakuten Ventures (Techcrunch). And despite our early stage, we have massive market penetration as the largest global provider for Notifications (Source: BuiltWith). Join us in scaling the business!

We have a lot of the great tech startup qualities you'd expect, but we don't stop there. Our massive scale and small team, emphasis on healthy life balance and kindness in all our interactions, and focus on ownership and personal growth make OneSignal a uniquely great place to work.

With our UK partner Elements Global Services, we are seeking an experienced account executive for our commercial team to help scale our business by ramping our customer acquisition in the London office.

We’re seeking sales professionals to help us spread its goodwill to mobile app developers and marketers across the globe, and help the company convert some of the 1 million current users of the product. The primary responsibilities will be successfully converting businesses to paid customers.

This team member will be eager, energetic, a problem solver who can learn in a fast-paced, innovative, technical environment. Ideal candidates will have an interest in push notifications and messaging, and how companies can integrate our product into their existing workflows, systems to more effectively connect and grow engagement with their users. Excitement to be part of a rocketship growth startup that isn’t a fine-tuned machine, requiring every early hire to be willing to wear different hats and do what’s necessary to make the company successful.

The Commercial Account Executive will be responsible for landing new deals across commercial and mid-market accounts ranging from companies up to 750 employees. The Commercial Account Executive manages the sales cycle from outbound prospecting, qualification, platform demo, pricing, and closing the business.

  • Incredible attention to detail (tracking activities; follow up with customers)
  • Bring a competitive, team spirit and a growth mindset
  • Speak and write fluently in German, French or Spanish
  • Bonus having experience selling messaging products

Qualities we look for:

  • Friendliness
  • Modesty
  • Ability to collaborate well on a team

In keeping with our beliefs and goals, no employee or applicant will face discrimination/harassment based on: race, color, ancestry, national origin, religion, age, gender, marital domestic partner status, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability status, or veteran status. Above and beyond discrimination/harassment based on 'protected categories,' we also strive to prevent other, subtler forms of inappropriate behavior (e.g., stereotyping) from ever gaining a foothold in our office. Whether blatant or hidden, barriers to success have no place in our workplace.
