You will be responsible for meeting and exceeding new and existing business quotas. You will lead a team of Sales and Business Development managers to generate pipeline and close deals. As the organizational leader, you will deliver ongoing mentoring in both group and individual settings, set the tone, and drive for results.

Submittable is a feature-rich submission and content workflow platform which allows groups and collaborators in many industries to accept, review, and manage submissions. Attachments that are traditionally sent via email can be bulky and difficult to share with a group trying to collaborate on a project. Aggregating all these submissions and applications at times makes decision-making on that project difficult, and this is where Submittable has rendered its success. Companies like NBC, SpaceX, Amazon, and the New Yorker all use Submittable as a centralized tool, enabling everyone to work on one platform to collaborate, share notes, and make decisions much faster than before. Please review the Submittable website and be familiar with as much as you can before applying.

  • MUST have ability to communicate at an advanced level
  • MUST have very acute and fine attention to detail
