About the role

About ProPhone

ProPhone believes that home service pros and small businesses are the backbone of the economy and have gone too long without the right technologies. We are building "shopify for service businesses" to help home service professionals grow their business online through an auto-generated website and marketing automation tools.

ProPhone is co-founded by Nick Ornitz (CEO) and Shannon Kay (CPO). We're a YC-backed and seed-funded startup, growing quickly! We're looking for team members who can not only help us shape our product but also shape the company itself.

We care deeply about a culture that is inclusive and equitable for people of all backgrounds and experiences. We particularly encourage people from communities that tend to be underrepresented to apply, including but not limited to women, people of color, and people who identify as LGBTQ+.

We believe “great candidates” do not come about through simply a checkmark next to past experiences. We believe in hiring people not just skills. Even if you do not check every box but find excitement at the prospect of working with us in this capacity, please apply.

⚡ What you'll do

  • Conduct direct sales effort with pros interested in ProPhone services (along with other sales team members)- optimizing email campaigns, cold calls, and direct messaging
  • Gather intel from ProPhone customers and relay information to the product team to help shape the future for product development
  • Work closely with both our Chief Executive Officer and Growth Manager contributing strategically to sales initiatives

🎯 What we're looking for

  • College student looking to explore entrepreneurship and what it's like to work at a startup
  • Comfort speaking with customers and representing the ProPhone team
  • Excellent problem-solving skills to address dynamic, complex problems early
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Bonus credit: experience in sales, marketing or customer support

🤗 Who you are

  • Team player with a passion for learning
  • You are energized by ambiguity
  • Ambitious and willing to step outside your comfort zone

🙌 What we offer

  • Cash compensation on a commission basis with a base salary (hours depending)
  • Listing ProPhone on resume and access to the Y Combinator startup community
  • Fun-filled team that doesn’t take themselves too seriously, including virtual cameos from the team dog mascots Caro and Alta

🌎 Where you'll work

We're a remote-first team with presence in NYC, Boston, Atlanta, New Jersey, Milwaukee and San Diego. You can view our website at prophone.com

Why you should join ProPhone

ProPhone believes that home service pros and small businesses are the backbone of the economy and have gone too long without the right technologies. We are enabling service businesses to grow their business online. In a way, we’re building Shopify for service businesses to (1) bring the business online with a website, (2) market the business, and (3) manage everything from one place.

ProPhone is co-founded by Nick Ornitz (CEO) and Shannon Kay (CPO) with an excellent team of Dylan Stone-Miller (Founding Full Stack Engineer), Matthew Konicke (Founding Sr. Backend Engineer), and Michael Zhu (Growth Manager). We're YC-backed and seed-funded, and we're looking for an engineering leader who can not only help us shape our product and engineering culture but also shape the company itself.

We care deeply about a culture that is inclusive and equitable for people of all backgrounds and experiences. We particularly encourage people from communities that tend to be underrepresented to apply, including but not limited to women, people of color, and people who identify as LGBTQ+.

We believe “great candidates” do not come about through simply a checkmark next to past experiences. We believe in hiring people not just skills. Even if you do not check every box but find excitement at the prospect of working with us in this capacity, please apply.
