BLACKBX CAREERS - Inside Sales Executive (FILLED)

Posted by Scott Calonico on 08/01/18 16:25

BLACKBX is a fast growing, founder lead SaaS startup based in Leith, Edinburgh. Incorporated in 2015, we grew by 400% in 2017 and this year - with your help - we’re going to beat that.

To achieve this, we’re looking for a superstar to join our team as our dedicated Inside Sales Executive.

We’re on a mission to help brick & mortar businesses harness, and benefit from the power of customer data while at the same time giving their customers a superior WiFi experience. We’re working hard to build a company together and want someone who will share this vision and help us achieve it.

As our Inside Sales Executive you will play a fundamental role in achieving our customer acquisition and revenue growth objectives for 2018.

The Product

BLACKBX is a Guest WiFi solution for hospitality businesses like stadiums, hotels, bars/pubs and restaurants that provides a quick, easy and non-intrusive way for their customers to get online. Customers submit their information, such as email, to get WiFi access. Businesses can then use this data to increase visit frequency, dwell time and spend per head. We give offline businesses access to (and the tools to benefit from) customer data.

How You’ll Fit In

Some deals can be won with just a few phone calls and online demos (1 or 2 location customers), whereas others require a larger, solution based sale (chain of 10+ venues). The ideal candidate will be comfortable with both and be able to deliver a quick, value driven sale to those whose needs neatly fit our product; also to use their product knowledge and solution selling for larger, more advanced customers by utilising our ability to integrate with 700+ additional tools via Zapier. We have a great technical team to support you in pre-sales, as well as to implement the solution.
