Hiring (and being hired) is one of the most important things we do, but humans are frankly terrible at it. We look for the wrong things, we’re biased, and we don’t follow the data.
Applied is on a mission to help organisations hire the best person for the job, regardless of race, gender or background. Our platform helps teams manage their hiring process with more precision and less bias. Everything is measured so teams can understand what works and that allows them to constantly measure, improve and give candidates useful feedback!
We've proved that it's a better way to hire, for all involved.
We're lucky enough to be scaling the business with a big focus on international expansion.
This is your chance to get in on the ground floor of a fast growing, investor-backed start-up and be part of changing the way hiring is done on a global scale. You can read more about us in the New York Times, Harvard Business Review, TechCrunch and New Scientist.
The job opportunity
Work closely with Head of International Expansion & Community Lead to grow our network across the United States. We need to reach as many Exec teams, Talent & HR and forward thinking hiring managers as possible, and encourage them to come to our events, undertake our free training on un-biased recruitment and ultimately begin using the Applied platform so that they can create a truly fair and inclusive experience.
Our Sales Development Representative should:
Be empowered by an entrepreneurial environment - a self-starter, who is positive, resilient and determined – you’re able to pick yourself up after a setback, work out what went wrong and have another go.
Have a strong interest in Sales & Marketing and how to grow audiences and customer bases in new markets.
Be evidence & data orientated. You need to come up with ideas, and then carefully monitor how well they are working.
Be passionate about improving workplaces - whether it’s Diversity & Inclusion or culture, you’ll love what you do and want a world where everyone is free to be their true selves in a job they love.
Love learning and thrive on feedback - in a start-up, none of us have all the answers, so an openness and willingness to constantly learn is essential.
In your first 6 months at Applied you'll:
Use a combination of LinkedIn & other tools to build large lists of potential targets for our training programs, webinars and technology
Design & run campaigns using technology to automate follow ups, build LinkedIn networks and enrich our prospect data
Feedback to the team, and do reporting on what messaging is reaching through to US audiences, and what isn't
Follow up post events & training days to encourage participants to demo the technology and talk to our sales team
Like the rest of the Applied team members you'll benefit from:
Equity in the business.
Wellbeing benefit & access to Spill.
Flexible and remote working options.
Involvement in other aspects of the business, from strategy, management and training, to shaping team culture.
Being part of something that's both commercially successful and socially important.
