Startup Europe. Grown up reporting
As a sales manager at Sifted, you will be selling across all media products in Sifted’s ever-growing inventory. In addition to developing business opportunities from cold and warm leads, you’ll be working closely with other members of the commercial team including sales people, events producers, creatives and campaign managers to ensure that your client’s campaign expectations are met and exceeded.
Sifted is the media platform reporting on the world of technology and startups in Europe, backed by the Financial Times. Two years after launching, we’ve become known for our high-quality journalism and fresh viewpoints, and a must-read for many founders, investors and people working in startups across the continent.
Our team of reporters, based across Europe, aren’t chasing after the latest funding announcements or product releases; plenty of other sites have got that covered. We are telling the stories that should be told — big startup trends, compelling company profiles and the everyday lessons that come from growing a business and messing up along the way.
We have grown from a standing start to over 500,000 monthly unique visitors, and over 60,000 newsletter subscribers, and have a lively social media following, but there is much more to be done to both grow and consolidate our readership.
In our first year selling media products and partnerships, we’ve helped over sixty clients position their brands and products with Sifted’s audience. We work with a diverse range of companies, from big tech, to large corporates, to early stage startups looking to increase their visibility. We’re constantly developing new products and so you’ll be selling lots of different media products. We’re lucky to have lots of inbound enquiries and so you’ll be picking up on red hot leads, as well as prospecting for the next big Sifted client.
As a sales manager, you are a champion of Sifted’s growth and brand. You’ll be reporting to the Partnerships Director, and will be responsible for driving revenue growth by selling across reports, branded content, events (digital for now!) and partnership campaigns. You’ll promote Sifted’s suite of products to both new and existing customers and negotiate sales contracts. In addition to selling, you’ll be a key point of contact for your clients, managing aspects of the account post-sale. You will take part in regular meetings with the Partnerships Director to align on project management, commercial opportunities and the sales pipeline.
