The SnapBar is a rapidly-growing company that creates photo and video experiences to help planners, producers and marketers create better engagement at events.
We’re a successful, bootstrapped company. We made the Inc. 500 list last year, and we’ve had the privilege of working at events like CES, Coachella, and SXSW with clients including Google, Nike, Disney, Louis Vuitton, MasterCard, and many others.
We have an incredible team, a fun culture, and we work from the beautiful, quiet town of Gig Harbor even though we’re a national brand.
We’re poised for incredible growth over the next few years, so we’re seeking a sharp, experienced, and friendly person to join our team in the role of Sales Director. The role will work closely with our CEO as we build an outbound Sales Department and optimize our current inbound processes. While the position isn’t entry-level, we’re looking for someone entrepreneurial, who can be a creative problem solver, a builder.
• Work alongside The SnapBar’s leadership team and the existing Events Team (our version of an inbound team) to accelerate the expansion of The SnapBar’s business.
• Begin work as an individual contributor and then move towards building a Sales Department. We are starting from scratch, so we need a player first and then (as quickly as possible) a coach.
• Alongside individual contribution, we need someone to begin building and then lead a Sales Department to meet quarterly and annual revenue goals.
• Develop venue, planner, and other vendor partnership strategies.
• Develop strategy for and work with our larger clients to deepen their spend, bundle events or services into annual agreements, and consider creating exclusive contracts.
• Oversee our strategy for expos and tradeshows.
• Create new and optimize previous inbound and outbound sales processes through results-oriented evaluation and experimentation.
• Develop account prioritization criteria and work closely with other team members (Events Team specifically) to help them prioritize their target clients, set direction, evaluate performance, and develop coaching plans.
• Work closely with The SnapBar’s leadership team and own the vision for growth as we create short-, medium-, and long-term goals for establishing The SnapBar as the industry leader and innovator.
• Actively lead and participate in go-to-market strategy for new products, new segments, and new locations.
• Own and build out the infrastructure (CRM) and methodology (Account Based Everything, Challenger Sales, etc.) across the Sales Department.
• Define geographic territories or other areas of focus for future members of the Sales Department, and work with them to develop strategic sales and expansion playbooks tailored to each client segment.
• Set aggressive sales goals for your team and take full ownership over leading the team to meet those goals.
• Day-to-day support of the Events Team for the processing and bidding of complex quotes and projects.
