Job Description
TapRm's growing team is seeking to hire a motivated, responsible, and forward-thinking individual to play an integral role in the growth and national expansion of TapRm. This is truly a unique opportunity to take ownership of a high-growth company’s brand relations with the ability to improve and shape the sales funnel system. While this dynamic role’s projects and priorities may vary day by day, we are looking for someone who relishes the opportunity to dive into new challenges and further the success of the Brand Partnerships division. This position will report directly to the Head of Brand Partnerships and is eligible for stock options so that our new Business Development Director can gradually build upon our current success and grow with the company. We expect that a hard-working person who fits TapRm's culture in this role will grow into additional responsibilities and ultimately build and lead a team within TapRm over time. Compensation will be commensurate with experience with competitive commission incentives paid out quarterly.
