Get in on the ground floor of a rocket ship of a company experiencing 400%+ growth. VF has become THE innovation resource for advertisers by tapping into our global innovation network to help brands find curated, vetted solutions that over-deliver on their objectives. Clients include most of the Fortune 500s from Netflix to Chevy to Microsoft. We also work with every major ad agency. We deliver what is next, now.
We need a dynamic, charismatic superstar to both sell to advertisers and manage our existing team. You must be creative and resourceful. You should be super curious and passionate about innovation – we can blow your mind with our access to AR, AI, VR and things you don’t even know about yet. You should be comfortable being the disrupter and able to persuade advertisers/agencies that tried and true is a great way to go out of business. You need to be able to learn quickly and simplify complex things succinctly to give advertisers the skinny on why this is awesome for them.
Be hungry, competitive and ready to work – as we are changing the game and need people that will break through walls to help make it happen.
It’s the best job in the world. You will be at the tip of innovation, seeing every new tech before anyone else and doing award winning, first-to-market programs with the biggest brands in the world. Did we mention you get to work with a dynamic fast growing team that works in-sync to make great things happen? A family of creative thinkers, tinkerers that all love to create unique solutions for our brand partners.
You will report directly to the Founder/CEO.
You must be…
An Outstanding Presenter: Poise, gravitas, charisma, ability to think quickly on your feet. You need to be able to sit comfortably in front of the CMO and talk about advertising, ask great questions and present solutions on the fly. You also need to bond with 24 year-old media buyers. Cool and smart. We want the best of the best.
A Player/Coach: We are looking for someone with a proven network of advertisers and agencies to sell to, as well as to manage our fast growing sales team.
A Master of Consultative Sales: This isn’t spots and dots. We are selling never been done before and we have options to show. If you want cookie-cutter, please don’t apply. You will be juggling many cool ideas – you must love that flexibility and be able to pull the right rabbit, for the right hat.
Great at Asking Questions: Politely probing questions to get to what is really needed and then be able to dip into our bag of tricks to provide THE perfect solution.
Approachable But Tough: We need a mentor/coach that inspires our sales team to continue our fantastic growth. We need a mentor/coach to make sure sales team hits KPIs like meetings per week, revenue targets, etc. We need a mentor/coach that is always fair, but able to hold each person accountable for their success as you will be held accountable for your own.
Charismatic/Persuasive: Need to be charismatic & practical to inspire advertisers to take chances.
