Email careers@spekit.co to apply!

As the first Alliances Manager at Spekit, you will have the opportunity to combine your extensive knowledge of the Salesforce ecosystem and channel development to structure compelling business relationships with our SI, Reseller and Strategic partners.

Some stuff that we’re looking for, culture-wise

  • Team Player. We believe that your customer experience starts with your employee experience and as such, we believe that collaboration, listening, anticipating needs, doing what is right, and always going above and beyond.
  • “Doer mentality”. We’re in the early stages of building something really great and that requires a lot of hands on deck. We want team players who walk the walk, as much as they talk the talk. Execution is key.
  • Open-Minded. We are a diverse group of lifelong learners. We approach our work with curiosity and an open mind. We constantly look for ways to improve our products and ourselves, never settling for good enough.
  • Work Smart and Be Present: As a startup, it can feel like you’re racing against the clock at all times – where “more” is the only path forward. We believe that you do your best at work when practicing mindfulness, getting the right amount of sleep and prioritizing the things that truly matter in life.
  • Possibility before Practicality: We’re a team of innovators and are always looking to think 3 steps ahead of our competition. We think at scale, imagine what’s possible and then work our way backwards with an MVP approach to everything we do.
  • Grit. We run towards challenges. If something seems unsolvable, it unleashes our persistence, our creativity, and our ability to move through uncertainty to create a solution.
  • Energy. We embrace joy and kindness. We love what we do and bring our best selves to work each day. We seek to share our optimism and compassion with everyone around us.
