Sales Associate

Full-time | Remote in the U.S. | Start date: ASAP
We’re looking for a creative, scrappy, and hungry sales associate who is eager to find, cultivate, and close deals and grow our B2B SaaS product for brands, Thingtesting Growth Tools. This role is responsible for prospecting and outreach, helping brands launch product testing campaigns, and converting them into paying customers. You’ll work closely with brands, helping them grow, gather feedback, and build social proof while working closely with our marketing, product, and account management teams to constantly iterate and improve our product and offering for brands.
This role is perfect for someone who is excited to own B2B relationships from A to Z. As an early member of the team, you’ll be instrumental in helping us define and scale our B2B business.
We’re a small, 100% remote team of 10 people, with team members currently spread between New York, San Francisco, Stockholm, Helsinki, Copenhagen, and Gran Canaria.

About Thingtesting

We are the go-to brand discovery and product review platform. Our goal is to make shopping more thoughtful and insightful, together. Over 1M+ visitors come to Thingtesting.com every month to research before they buy, but also to discover new brands, try new things, and share honest reviews to help others shop better.
Our B2B offering gives brands the tools to introduce their products and interact with consumers. We offer features for brands both for free and on a paid plan for $99/month. Our latest feature for brands was launched just a couple of months ago and is our most popular one so far: an omnichannel growth tool that allows brands to set up product testing campaigns in whatever sales channel of their preference, which then quickly allows them to gain exposure, get honest product feedback and reviews, drive consumer engagement, improve retailer relations, and boost sales.
We are a venture-backed early-stage startup that has raised financing from renowned U.S. and European funds and angel investors, including Forerunner Ventures, Animo Ventures, Hunter Walk, Tina Sharkey, and many more. We have been fortunate to receive appreciation and recognition for our hard work along the way from the likes of TechCrunch, Vogue Business, Modern Retail, and a Harvard Business School case study. Forbes included our CEO, Jenny Gyllander, on its 30-under-30 list.
We have a lot of exciting developments in store. Join us on the mission to help people shop better.
