Director, Sales

As DealStreetAsia moves into its next phase of growth, we are looking to bring on board a senior executive to drive all revenue and marketing functions (sales, marketing, subscriptions, data products and events),  and guide the direction of the organization in every facet of the design and execution of our go-to-market strategies.

Apply for this role only if you are fired up about our offerings, future plans and the potential niche vertical media offers  – the ideal candidate will need to be a go getter, hustler, persuasive, and effective communicator, who will live, breathe and drive the next 5 years of DealStreetAsia’s revenue life. You have to be all in! 100%!

At the current phase of the company’s growth, the role combines all revenue functions – so you’ll have to demonstrate proficiency developing and driving product revenues and mapping long-term company growth areas.  You will play a key role in all non-editorial hiring we make, and work with the team on all current deals, optimize the sales process and tactics of the company and help define our go to market strategy.

This role requires strong leadership skills and people management experience – sales, marketing, events roles will report into you. It also requires strong working proficiency with marketing automation systems. Having a financial background will be a plus. 

While we are looking for an experienced hand, you don’t need to be a sales director in your current company to apply. Instead, we are looking for an executive who has a terrific understanding of the media space, and is willing to work within the ethics and standards the company has set for itself. We, therefore, need an ambitious, creative, hardworking people manager who’s excited to jump in and build the business. Previous senior level experience building out a sales and marketing organisation will be a plus. 

You must also know how to interact and collaborate with the editorial department. At DealStretAsia, we put editorial integrity first. You should be able to help put the best tools and processes in place to maximize efficiency through a strong operating rhythm, and also work collaboratively across virtually every function to create alignment and implement various strategic projects designed to drive revenue at a rapidly growing media company. 

This role will report to the Editor-in-Chief.
