Business Development Associates for a NYC based start-up

at Epickk, Inc. in New York

We are a recently founded social gifting start-up company with an experienced team of passionate, creative and fun people based in New York and London. Our team includes a very diverse group of people including lawyers, PhDs and engineers coming from a very multinational background. We are currently working on a mobile product that will revolutionize the social gifting experience. Although we are in the early stages, we have plans to expand quickly throughout the major international cities and we need your help to grow together!

We are currently looking for a part-time Marketing and Business Development Associate that can help us market our product to local businesses in London and convince these local merchants to join our network. The pay will be hourly based and depend on your experience level. In addition, there will also be a performance-based bonus depending on the number of stores that you add to our network. Although this position is part-time and hourly-based it may lead to a regular position within our company. Indeed, we would love to find an Associate that can stay with us in the long run.

Your main responsibilities will include:

- Signing up local businesses (mostly restaurants, bars, coffee shops, SPAs etc.) to join our network of local merchants in London by visiting them directly and/or cold calling them (so yes, it is fun and you will be out and about!)
- Assisting us with the relations of our current merchant partners.
- Assisting our team in creating and implementing marketing strategies, preparing marketing materials, and dealing with various other marketing efforts including promotions.

Ideal candidate for this position:

- Recent graduate or an undergraduate/graduate student (as long as you have the passion for internet and mobile technologies, your major and class year does not really matter!).
- Exceptional interpersonal and sales/marketing skills.
- Prior business development and marketing experience.
- Prior experience in business development /marketing of a technology product (huge plus).
- Smart, fun, energetic and outgoing personality, and a positive attitude.
- Self-starter with a can-do attitude who is able to multitask.
- Familiarity and good understanding of social media and major social websites and mobile applications. (Are you addicted to facebook, twitter and pinterest?)
- Passion and curiosity for Internet and mobile technologies, marketing, and social media in general.

If you are excited about what you just read, please send us your resume along with a short statement explaining why you want this position and your interests. Thanks!
