Wanna be a part of making the world a friendlier place? We’re Speedfriending, a small startup that’s part event company, part tech company. We help people find new, meaningful friendships. We do this primarily through our Speedfriending events, of which we’ve now held close to 200, mainly across Norway and Denmark. Speedfriending is the fun and social twin sister of speed dating, where the goal is to find new friends. We’re also building the new match-making app for friendships, and you can find our app in the App Store and Google Play.
We are currently looking for people to help us with our sales efforts for the event-side of our operations on a part-time basis. Our clients are businesses and organizations who want to partner with us to organize Speedfriending for their employees, members, users, customers, constituents etc. You’ll be working mostly with outbound sales to identify, establish relationships with and sell event packages to potential clients. We also want to explore other sales channels, and in the not-too-distant future we’ll need skilled people to help commercialize our digital social platform, so the position could also grow into a full-time engagement.

Work outbound with phone and email to connect with potential clients
Be a part of brainstorming event formats and packages in collaboration with clients and event managers
