Besides attractive compensation, our priority is that your work and opinions matter. Join us in building a leading credit API for a £7 trillion dollar market while enjoying a fun, challenging, and rewarding journey.
As SAPI serves the growing needs of both platforms and SME businesses in the UK and Europe, we are looking for account managers to engage with clients (both platform partners and merchants) to identify business opportunities, build strong relationships with clients and refine their experience with us.
This placement involves close and continuous engagement with our customers. Primary duties include:
- Building and maintain strong, long-lasting relationships with our customers.
- Growing sales through identifying new business opportunities with new and existing customers.
- Writing and deliver reports on key projects and opportunities.
As well as building up and honing your B2B customer service and sales skills, you will also have broad exposure to other aspects of the company through optional business development projects including marketing, strategy, product development, accounting and operations.
Specific responsibilities and duties
We are a highly motivated, entrepreneurial, ambitious team with a passion for helping SME businesses and having fun at work. As part of this team, we are looking for talented and motivated account managers, with an appetite for creating long-lasting customer relationships to grow SAPI.
Account manager duties include:
- Develop and maintain true brand presence and long-lasting relationships.
- Act as the lead of contact for any account concerns from your customer base.
- Increase sales from new and existing customers through renewals, upsell, and cross sell.
- Ensure successful delivery of our solutions to customers in a timely manner according to customer needs and objectives.
- Identify new business opportunities and collaborate with other teams to further define and expand the scope of existing opportunities.
- Prepare and deliver regular reports on status of key projects and opportunities.
- Provide guidance and training to other colleagues within SAPI to support wider business objectives in areas of expertise.
The account managers will report directly to our Founders.
The majority of the tasks will be designed to help you hone your B2B customer service, sales and management skills. However, you will also have the opportunity to elect several projects to enrich your skillsets and gain a deeper business understanding. You will spend 1-2 days a week on selected projects of your choice, through which you will have plenty of learning opportunities while working with others in a team. These projects of choice can cover other fields such as Marketing, Fundraising, Business Strategy, Product Development, Accounting and Operations.
