The Job

HowAboutWe is looking for an Account Executive that will drive sales and partnership efforts to imagine, find and secure unique, premium dates for our Couples product. You would be responsible for building out an extensive set of partnerships with New York’s top local experience vendors (e.g. restaurants, cultural venues, activity providers), and crafting unique and memorable dating experiences with these vendors to be offered to Couples customers. This is an exciting opportunity to be a part of an emerging team at a startup with immense growth opportunities.

Key Responsibilities:
-Find and reach out to top-tier local experience providers and craft unique experiences that will perform well among the HowAboutWe customer base
-Consistently secure on brand date packages with favorable margins
-Maintain strong ongoing relationships with our experience vendors
-Meet and exceed monthly, quarterly and annual sales goals


Who We’re Looking For

-You have a persistent, “shark” personality combined with polish, poise and a team-player attitude
-You have a proven track record of success in strategic and analytical selling.
-You see “no” as a welcome challenge, not a final answer.
-You bring with you a rolodex of top-tier vendor and partner relationships.
-You are excited to work with the HowAboutWe team to build a company that transforms the way people find and sustain love online and offline.
-You have off-the-charts ambition, are willing to take risks, and are motivated by the fast paced, ever-changing entrepreneurial world.
-You are a highly analytical thinker, have tremendous communication and people skills and are comfortable shifting back and forth between “pitch mode” and “deep dive analysis mode.”
-You do an exceptional job on any and all tasks, are highly organized, and detail-oriented. You are self-motivated and can manage multiple workflows and prioritize your own time.

Requirements:
-Bachelors degree
-2 to 5 year of experience in Sales, Partnership Marketing and/or New Business Development
-Exceptional written and verbal communication skills
-Significant exposure to internet and e-commerce products
-Experience with SalesForce.com or other CRM tool preferred
-Understanding of the “local experience” space
