This is a chance for someone who wants to grow their sales and marketing capabilities while exponentially increasing their professional exposure.

What’s in it for you?

  • Accelerated career growth. You want to be apart of building out a marketing strategy for a startup and learn the fundamentals of building and operating a sales strategy.
  • Professional development. It is a unique opportunity to be involved in the development and implementation of two fundamental business processes - a  solid framework to leverage and highlight as you build your career.

Who will you work with?

Bryan Smith. He’s our CEO and Co-founder. ThinkData Works was born out of his success spearheading the global open data movement during his political career at the Government of Canada.  He’s results driven and results-oriented which is how he’s single-handedly built over $3M in revenues driven through enterprise licensing with customers historically impossible to sell into as a startup.

He wants anyone joining ThinkData to understand that the atmosphere and demeanour are more professional than you might find at the average tech startup; they still know how to have fun and do so quite frequently, but business come first. He’s learned a lot since starting his company, mostly that challenging his engineers to rock climbing route races is a fool’s errand. But he does know how to successfully grow and scale a company - he learned that from his father, the old school way.

Here’s what you will do as our new Marketing and Sales Representative:

  • On-the-spot creative problem solving. We are selling a solution that is at the forefront of the big data movement. You will need to gain an understanding of our client’s landscape and quickly identify opportunities to connect data providers and startups.
  • Pipeline management. You will build and  manage our inbound sales funnel. You will qualify leads and identify prospects, moving them through the pipeline to the Account Managers.
  • Market material generation. You will be building sales products, product one-pagers, case studies, and any other tools the sales team needs to close deals.
  • Whatever it takes. This is a new product and the future of how companies will make decisions. You will constantly be working to drive growth as you:
    • Provide any and all marketing and business development support from administrative coordinator to package and presentation preparation.
    • Develop a deep understanding of the solution and how it lines up with current with industry trends.
    • Report on metrics.
    • Use Salesforce to enter contract details and manage files.
    • Coordinate marketing initiatives. From drafting communications, emails and social media posts to working with media and external sources to generate new engaging and relevant content.

And how do we know that’s you? You have:

  • The ideal combination of education and experience. You have a Business, Marketing or Communications degree. You know how to build out a process in Salesforce and administer a marketing campaign or sales program. You have 2-3 years experience in marketing and sales support, preferably in a startup environment.
  • The knowledge. You have a general understanding of the world of big data and the tools used in the space. Or, you need to show us your experience and strengths add up to someone who can pick this up on-the-go and run with it.
  • Technical skills. You are familiar with a range of marketing and design tools.
  • Motivation, drive and passion. You get a thrill from being part of the pursuit that increases audience share. You are calm under pressure and optimistic. The confidence in our solution and our company just makes it all the easier for you.
  • Communication and translation. It goes without saying, your written and verbal communication skills - including the ability to listen and reflect back - need to be knock-out worthy.
  • Marketing and sales methodology and innovation. You believe in following a process because it works and changing it up when it doesn’t.

Need more reasons to join?

We may be technologically driven, but like any good Canadian we know the best ideas are thought of up north in a cottage. We currently take two 3-day retreats for mission setting, aligning with our goals, product management and team building. We usually do a spring and fall one up at a cottage. We’re not saying this involves a beer keg, guitars and campfires. But we’re not saying it doesn’t.

We are managing our growth. We continue to promote and nurture the open, collaborative nature of who we are and how we work. And we don’t just support each other in the office. The number of musicians in-house is pretty overwhelming, from big band trumpeters to death metal guitarists. There’s always a co-worker with a gig coming up and we go out to cheer them on.

If being a pioneer in the world of data and solving real-world problems sounds like a future you want to be part of, express your interest here or follow us on Twitter or LinkedIn to learn more about us.
