About the role:
If you’re looking for an opportunity of a lifetime – Q’s expansion team is looking for motivated, ambitious sales professionals to join the front lines of our team.
Market Launchers are tasked with one of the most exhilarating – and challenging – roles at Q: to go into a new market and stand up Managed by Q’s business in a very short period of time. This is a heavily sales-focused role (we expect at least 75% of your time to be spent in traditional sales activities), but it also involves a lot of general management. In partnership with the expansion operations team, you will define the local market vendor requirements and help onboard vendors. You will serve as the face of Managed by Q in your market with vendor partners, strategic partners, prospective clients and clients. You will solve any issues that arise in your city. You will also define marketing and branding activities, oftentimes leading execution of these strategies in-market. Almost nothing is off-limits and you should be prepared to take full accountability for the success of the market.
