Chairish, Inc. Senior Manager of Inside Sales in San Francisco, California

Senior Manager of Inside Sales

About Us: Launched in 2013, Chairish is a rapidly growing vintage and one-of-a-kind home decor marketplace built by an experienced entrepreneurial executive team from previous startups including TripIt, Hotwire, eBay, PayPal, Yammer, and One Kings Lane. As the largest curated marketplace exclusively focused on the home category, we’ve built a successful pipeline of professional vintage sellers throughout the country. Much of this growth has come organically, but we know that specializing our inside sales process will allow us to scale faster than ever before. This is where you come in.

Who you are: As Chairish’s first Inside Sales leader, you will ensure that Chairish is the first choice for sellers to list and sell quality furniture and home décor. To accomplish this, you will have a consistent track record of developing a top of funnel sales strategy and execution plan from scratch, as well as developing a prospecting and qualification system for thousands of leads across a broad variety of customer groups. Proven success in iterating and A/B testing will ensure that we continue to finesse our message as seller preferences evolve and the competitive landscape changes. And while this role requires an expert background in inside sales development, the ideal candidate will know when to apply best practices-—and when to adjust the approaches to suit the nuances of our business.
