Not long ago I had a conversation with one of my teammates regarding the policies some Spanish companies have on what are called "practicas" Personally I think they are useless and it undermines the talent that can be obtained in the industry.
So if you could avoid them, would you? Would you instead work at a place where your full potential can shine? I hope so, because if you love sales, if you enjoy strategy, if you like to see how small decisions create significant business opportunities, then I am sure you will want to read what we can offer you.
Ok great, so what the heck is YUMIWI? And why are we looking to hire a sales ninja? It is only fair to give you a brief explanation of what we do, we tend to ask applicants about themselves but forget to tell you who we are.
We are all about events and their data! Music festivals, professional events, conferences, trade-shows, brand activations, and anything related to brands and attendees. We have developed an event marketing platform, for brands to track and measure their events results, interactions and any other actionable data point we can gather to predict and understand attendees and their interactions with the brands.
We use technology such as NFC to track and understand attendees at events, personalize content, allowing them to share and amplify their experience, and following every interaction to feed data back to brands.
It has been four years, more than 900 events so far, with top brands. We are a small team that has the urge to grow and become something more significant. We are currently launching our SaaS platform to make sure we can get every brand, attendee and event organizer a unified software, a unique experience and a seamless integration to all their event needs.
This is where you come in. We are looking for a sales ninja to make this journey more complete. We need you to help us strengthen the sales department, so there is a lot to do, a lot of work and a lot of creativity involved. We mainly work in the Spanish market and Latin America.
You will be working with the CCO (Chief Commercial Officer) we are currently expanding our market scope to the UK for 2019. So we need you to have a solid foundation in English, especially since you will be leading some of the UK activities.
The way I see it, you have two choices. Take the red pill or the take the blue pill.
Stop reading now, go back to your everyday life, be happy and pretend we don't exist.
Keep reading, start training your mind for a significant change in your life and join this fantastic project.
