- This is a (generous) commission-only role
Vuulr is a B2B technology company that is transforming the process of licencing Films & TV Shows globally.
Filmmakers and Producers of TV content make their money by selling the rights to their content to broadcasters (e.g. Mediacorp, Discovery) and streaming platforms (e.g. Netflix, Viu, etc) to show to their audiences.
But the way the industry has been doing this until now has been manual, slow and expensive. Vuulr has launched an online marketplace (vuulr.com) to revolutionise how the industry trades with one another, making the process faster, cheaper and more efficient. We have accelerated the time it takes to trade content rights from 3-6 months, to an average of 8-10 days!
And with 135k+ hrs now listed, and 11k+ approved users, in just 2 years we have become the global leaders and the business is expanding fast.Opportunity
The business is growing fast and we're now looking to find like-minded sales Partners in the territories around the world which we cannot physically cover.
You will become an important extension of Vuulr's sales force, joining 30+ Partners already signed up. We call this the Vuulr Partner Programme (VPP): https://corp.vuulr.com/vuulr-partner-program/
And given the current COVID restrictions (forcing people to work with online solutions like us) coupled with our friendly commercial terms (no upfront costs for either side) Vuulr is an attractive proposition to refer onwards.Skills
