Requirements for this position: We are a weather service, so you've got to be a weather nerd. You should understand how weather impacts every part of our lives, and be able to see the world from the perspective of people systematically disadvantaged by the inequality that extreme weather and climate change creates.
Experience: 3-5 years of work experience engaged in B2B, B2C, and B2B2C sales, with huge bonus points if that's within the climate space.
Duties: You'll be tasked with the entirety of our public and business-facing sales efforts at Currently, including hiring freelance support staff to help you achieve our goals of becoming a weather service that's accessible to everyone in the world — regardless of language, culture, or ability to pay. We have only a broad outline of how we'd like to structure our sales strategy, so the first several weeks will be focused on strategy and planning.
1 year vision: You'll have created a sales strategy that puts Currently on a path to providing our weather services to millions of people around the world with a price structure that reflects the inherent economic inequality made worse by climate change (for example, establishing a buy-one-give-one model that advances economic justice). You'll have closed B2B and B2B2C deals with dozens of clients. You'll have helped us grow our paid membership from a few hundred to 20,000.
Location: Remote, work will focus on North America
