Stray Boots is an NYC-based tech startup offering cell phone-guided games that play out like a cross between a tour and a scavenger hunt (think: your own private Amazing Race). We offer self-guided adventures for groups of all sizes, and a big part of our revenue comes from events for organizations looking for creative team-building, orientation, and touring options.
We’re looking for an awesome Event Sales Manager to join our team to oversee and grow this segment of our business, building our client base within the 14 US cities where we already offer products and to galaxies beyond. You’ll be responsible for handling all incoming event leads, converting them to sales, and managing ongoing relationships with past clients. But more importantly you'll find new sales channels through which we can promote our events and increase our super-happy client base.
You should be an enthusiastic people person who revels in unbridled responsibility and autonomy. As the sole member of our Events “Department” you’ll have complete ownership over this area of the business, with the responsibility and opportunity it affords you to turn it into something spectacular. To do the job as amazingly as you can, you should have a strong background in sales and customer service; have fun working independently and as part of a team; and communicate extremely effectively by all means: in person, phone, email, telegraph, SnapChat, charades.
In your application, tell us why you're excited about Stray Boots!
