Social Media Sales Executive

The Role

The Social Media Sales Executive role is both intense and rewarding.  It not only focuses on teamwork and culture, but also, and most importantly, has a strong emphasis on business-to-business sales with a focus on our social media solutions. 

As part of the role, you will be speaking to a wide range of companies and organizations – from Universities and local government departments to Fortune 500 companies. You will be responsible for the entire sales process, from prospecting to product demonstrations to bringing clients onboard yourself – getting all of the credit for your hard work.

The kind of person that is successful with Meltwater is hard working, intelligent, and well rounded. We are inspired by people with extensive business acumen, a good sense of humor, and a willingness to succeed. 

Personal and Professional Growth Opportunities

Meltwater takes a vertical approach to our management trainee program, and we only promote from within. As opposed to being jack-of-all trades and master-of-none, you will develop into a highly competent salesperson and a confident manager, who will have an inspiring group of employees that you will hire, train and develop yourself.  Having a career in sales and management will build valuable business acumen, allowing you to develop very quickly in ways that few other careers offer.
