So you want to be a Rebel

helpwanted In our quest to revolutionize marketing by turning major brands into grassroots marketers, Rebel Industries needs help. If the opportunity below suits your skills and passions, please contact us. If it makes you think of a friend, please forward it. Position: Account Executive Location: Los Angeles Freelance and full-time applicants will be considered

If I have to explain what an Account Executive does, this job isn’t for you. If you really want to look at a description, you can find one at Monster or Wikipedia.

I believe that the most important factor in successfully achieving our mission is building long-term, mutually valuable relationships with our clients. In order to do that, we have to provide exceptional client experiences. That's where you come in.

You are accountable for the health and growth of our client relationships. You will serve as a trusted advisor to clients and communicate client needs and priorities to Rebel’s team. You will work with clients and Rebel’s strategy and operations teams to develop and activate marketing initiatives. You will create proposals, statements of work, and reports, manage budgets, present qualitative and quantitative data and build case studies.

You need to be smarter than I am, and smarter than our clients, but not make us feel that way. Make us laugh, make us smile, and most importantly enable us to be excellent at what we do. You have to be extremely resourceful and networked. Clients come to Rebel to do things they’ve never done before, or tried before and failed. In some cases, they ask us to do things we’ve never done before. You have to help us figure out how to do these things successfully, and keep clients comfortable throughout the process.

In order to succeed in this role, you need to be:

  • An exceptional communicator, both in writing and verbal
  • Able to think on your feet and solve problems creatively
  • Excited about bringing ideas to life
  • Comfortable managing both in-house and external vendor relationships
  • Familiar with grassroots, lifestyle, non-traditional marketing, and social media
  • Extremely technology and computer savvy
  •  
    You should also be comfortable with compensation that grows with the position. It’s not about how much experience you have — if you can deliver value to Rebel and our clients, you will be compensated well for that.

    Hiring // Random Thoughts

    If you didn't know, we're looking to hire a salesperson. I placed on ad on LinkedIn and have gotten over 40 responses - some of them very qualified. I also posted the job within two niche communities - WOMMA (Word of Mouth Marketing Association) and A Small World - thinking that because these are small, closed networks that members would be paying attention and I might find some good quality candidates. I find it interesting that I got zero submissions from either of them. Any thoughts on why?

    Oh, and if you're interested, here's the job:

    Rebel Industries needs a salesperson. You can call it business development if that makes you feel better. Either way, this position will be responsible for bringing new accounts to the company.
