Full Job Description
Mayku is searching for a Sales Development Representative to grow our existing accounts and hunt for new business.
What is Mayku
We help people make amazing things with beautiful tabletop machines. We believe that the power to create should be in the hands of everyday people, not just large companies with multi-million-pound budgets. In our future, people are empowered to create and not just consume.
Our first product, the FormBox - helps independent creators make almost anything from homewares to custom chocolates. Learn more about it on our website.
We have 4000 customers in 74 countries and have established a global distribution network. We were recently chosen as one of the top 50 startups in the UK and are backed by some of Europe’s most successful investors. This is the start of something big, and we’re looking for talented people to be a part of it.
So, what's the opportunity?
We’re not shy about saying that we want to start a movement. That’s where you come in. We’re building a network of reseller partners to help get FormBoxes into the hands of makers worldwide. We have 80 set up so far. You’ll work directly with our head of sales and CEO to grow our partner programme and join us in spearheading a global creative revolution. This role is for someone looking to build a great career - we will help with full sales and business training.
What will I be doing?
You’ll be part of the Mayku founding team and lead growth of our key accounts.
You’ll fiercely approach finding new leads and nurturing them through to close.
You’ll partner with our head of sales and CEO to ensure our retail and distribution partners are hitting their sell-through targets.
We're looking for someone who wants to cut their teeth and then grow into a sales leader at the company as we scale our team.
What are the requirements?
You have a minimum of up to 1 years’ sales experience.
You are experienced in prospecting and calling.
You have commercial awareness, are hungry to succeed and have excellent attention to detail.
You’re motivated to work independently and are a quick learner.
You are a great problem solver and have the ability to clearly articulate challenges you’re facing to the wider team.
You enjoy working in a dynamic fast paced environment.
If I apply, what will the hiring process be like?
People are the most important part of any company, and we put a lot of thought into who we hire at Mayku. For the successful candidate, our hiring process looks like this:
We will kick things off with a short phone call to answer your questions, and learn a bit more about you.
We’ll invite you in for a two-stage interview to give you a chance to meet the team and for us to learn a bit more about your background and experience.
You’ll come in for half a day of paid work to get a feel for the company, and give us a chance to explore working with each other.
You’re also welcome to request a meeting with one of our investors to put any queries directly to them.
Finally, you'll receive a formal offer to join Mayku!
If you think you’re a great fit for the role, then we’d love to hear from you. If it’s looking like we won't be a match, we’ll let you know as soon as possible.
What do we offer?
Impact, trust, and influence at a well-funded, scaling startup.
Meaningful stock options, competitive salary and quarterly bonus.
Nimble, flexible working structure and engaged teammates.
Work from home 1 day a week.
Beautiful studio in DeBeauvoir.
Unlimited healthy (and not-so-healthy) snacks.
Quarterly team away day somewhere exciting.
Why We Started Mayku
We love making. However, the tools we use are getting more complicated, expensive, and harder to access. At Mayku, we’d like to solve that by changing the very way we think about making.
Our first mission is to build a simple set of machines that anyone can use - a personal factory to make the art of creating products as simple as baking a cake. The FormBox is our first machine. It’s a simple desktop vacuum former, able to make anything from lampshades to jello molds - and it's just the beginning.
People are the most important part of any company. We’re building a diverse team with two main goals:
Make incredible things never thought possible.
Help each other grow and share our skills.
If you're excited by the challenge, we're the team for you. We love problem-solving and trust great people to create original and outstanding work.
Our crew work to the beat of their own drums and office hours are as flexible as you want them to be (teamwork permitting, of course).
How to apply...
We take care of the entire process for you so we can manage and remove poor experiences like ghosting, no feedback, no updates and so on.
All you have to do is let your Relationship Manager know you’re interested, ask them any questions you have and they will take care of the rest.
Straight to the front
From there, what’s next is super simple
If you like the initial sound of the company/ role. We then act as your “in” with them and set up an initial phone chat with you and the Hiring Manager there.
The chat will be pretty informal and should only last 10-15 minutes - It's a fact find for both of you.
More than prepared
Before the call we will send you EVERYTHING you'll need to know about the company / who they are looking for / format of the call and so on.
You will be fully prepared and know what to expect at every stage.
