Strategic Partnerships Manager

| Greater NYC Area
Eight Sleep is the first sleep fitness company. At Eight Sleep we design products at the forefront of sleep innovation. Our mission is to power human potential through better sleep, using innovative technology, detailed design, and proven science and data to personalize and improve each night for everybody—changing the way people sleep forever and for better. Backed by leading Silicon Valley investors including Khosla Ventures and Y Combinator, it was named by Fast Company in 2018 as one of the Most Innovative Companies in Consumer Electronics.
We've just launched our temperature-regulated smart bed, the Pod. It's an absolute game changer, improving people's health and happiness by changing the way they sleep. Early feedback is great, but we still have a long way to go toward achieving our mission. 
That is why we are looking for a talented Strategic Partnerships Manager who will play a leading role in identifying, prioritizing, communicating and executing new partnership opportunities for Eight Sleep, while also leading our affiliate marketing and B2B sales channels. This position will report into Eight Sleep’s SVP of Growth and will work cross-functionally with the Product, Marketing, Operations and Finance teams to properly analyze and launch new initiatives, while optimizing existing partnerships. The ideal candidate will have strong attention to detail, be highly organized, self-motivated, and excited about working in a role with tons of autonomy.

How you’ll contribute:

  • Identify and engage new growth and partnership opportunities with traditional and startup retail brands that provide complimentary value to Eight Sleep
  • Grow the B2B sales channel through new hospitality or university customers, and manage existing relationships, retain customers, and grow the value of each account through recurring business
  • Manage affiliate marketing, one of Eight Sleep’s top revenue channels, and help grow our brand awareness through strategic relationships
  • Apply strategic lens and framework to opportunities based on Eight Sleep’s revenue targets, brand aspiration, product portfolio, and technology roadmap
  • Roll up sleeves as needed to ensure strategic initiatives are successfully executed and carried out

What you’ll need to succeed:

  • 4-6 years of relevant experience, preferably in business development, marketing or partnership roles
  • Experience working cross-functionally and representing companies in discussions and negotiations with C/VP-level executives
  • Exposure to marketing through working in the direct-to-consumer, SaaS, or Media industries is preferred
  • Adapts well to a fast-paced environment - being independent and scrappy is a must
  • Adept at managing through constant change
  • Highly self-motivated, hard-working, and results driven

Why you'll love Eight Sleep:

  • We’re a tight-knit, passionate team that’s working to improve people’s lives
  • Leadership is committed to employees’ wellness and career development
  • You’ll get a better night sleep every night; all full-time employees receive the Pod
  • Flexible, generous PTO
  • 100% employer contribution for medical/dental/vision insurance
  • Discounted gym memberships, commuter benefits
  • Weekly team happy hours and lunches
  • Office snacks

An Insider's view of Eight Sleep

What's something quirky about your company?

Well we have actual beds in the office. Not nap pods, not lounge chairs, but actual bonafide beds. Getting pulled into "testing" in the middle of the work day really helps when the after-lunch slowdown hits. Even though it's a bit unusual to catch up with your CEO about the product while laying in bed, it can be surprisingly productive!

Andriy

Product Manager

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

On the software team, we've recently been working on a "solo sleeper" mode. This mode allows the dual-zone temperature control and biometric sensing to be used across the full length of the bed. "Solo sleeper" mode is our most-requested feature, so it's been exciting to work on a problem that will solve our biggest user need.

Mercer

Software Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Eight Sleep is my first startup experience. In the past I've worked in large companies where processes are regimented and systems are in order. I have learned not to take those things for granted while discovering the true meaning of rolling my sleeves up and getting my hands dirty. It’s enriching. It’s empowering.

Irish

Director of Accounting & Finance

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Every one of our team members uses our products and we encourage sharing feedback. We have a daily stand up that is open to the whole team. There we give a rating to features in beta, we share feature ideas, and we talk about issues being flagged by our members. We've had great ideas emerge from this meeting that are now part of our products.

Alexandra

Co-Founder, VP Marketing & Branding

What is your vision for the company?

We are using innovation and technology to make the world sleep fit. In ten years from now, most people will be sleeping in smart beds like the Pod, giving them a full night of recovery, ensuring they can be their best during their waking hours.

Matteo

Co-Founder, CEO
