The Company

An exciting and unique opportunity to help us shape our a new on-line offer distribution system and prepare it for launch.

Our system allows us to create a tripartite link between consumers, brand owners and content sites to help us to spread revenues and grow exponentially.

At present we are a team of two experienced product/technical founders looking for a sales lead to help us reach our true potential. Technically, the business is ready for a sales push to help it show its true worth. With potential first mover advantage speed is of the essence, but a friendly and personable business approach is of equal importance. We aim to be ethical in what we do but with a constant eye on monetization.

The role will play a vital part in acquiring customers and ensuring the services are tailored to meet their needs and requirements. By putting themselves into the customer’s shoes, keeping things simple and taking ownership, the role will ensure that potential customers understand the unique benefits our system can deliver.
