Who we are:

We are a new breed of audience intelligence platform that’s re-inventing social media monitoring. We track conversations in 170 languages, across millions of social and news sources, collecting 100% of the data publicly available. Born out of 6+ years of experience with social data, we enable marketers to go beyond keyword tracking to map brand audiences, track how content spreads and measure the reach of social conversations. That means that we don’t just look at what people are saying: we look at who they are to help companies better connect to them.

We’re looking for dynamic people who want to build our story with us and be a part of the journey.

Why join us:

We seek to hire a ternacious graduate, that is enthused by the opportunity to build a sales career working for one of the coolest companies in the market today!

You will have the opportunity to learn the art of high level sales, whilst working for one of the industries emerging forces and potentially travelling the world whilst doing so!

Everyone in the team is highly talented; they are experts in their fields, which leads to an ambitious, highly skilled workforce. Expertise is constantly shared through training, knowledge-sharing sessions and we thrive off this supportive, friendly atmosphere. It’s an environment that fosters both personal and professional development - you can really put your mark on the business from day one. You will also be given the responsibility and support to take your career in the direction you want it to go.

You will be exposed to and work with some of the largest brands, agencies and partners globally. We have a wide variety of clients including; Facebook, Virgin, Instagram, NBC, Tumblr, Spotify, Mazda, Publicis and Havas.


For this role, we are looking for an interest in social media, a basic understanding of marketing as well as a can-do will-do attitude. This role will be interfacing with future clients, so this person must be personable, confident and used to speaking with a wide range of people, with a wide range of interests. This is a sales role and therefore we want someone who loves selling, enjoys competition and can push on through hard times - the role is phone based, so again enjoying working on the phone is an absolute must have.


The role of the "BDE" sits within the commercial function, specifically within the inside sales team. The role primary function is to surface new business targets for the UK based Business Development Managers to take into a sales process and ultimately turn into subscribing clients.

This lead development is largely done through cold calling and networking. On a day-to-day basis your time will be fairly structured between lead generation, cold calling as well as training sessions.

The objective of these calls will be to book in demos with potential clients within a particular area (i.e. agencies, brands or markets) and feed these leads to your team’s business development manager. You will be responsible for generating your own leads through your own research, and managing the process of scheduling in any demos that have been confirmed.
