Attentive is a personalized mobile messaging platform for innovative brands.
Attentive is a mobile messaging platform changing the way consumers interact with businesses and organizations. The company is one of the fastest growing startups in New York City and recently raised a $110 million Series C investment led by Sequoia and IVP—two of the world’s leading venture firms—in early 2020, less than 8 months after its Series B round due to strong customer traction. We’ve seen 347% customer growth in just one year, and now work with 1000+ of the most innovative brands like Coach, Urban Outfitters, CB2, PacSun, Lulus, Party City, and Jack in the Box. Attentive was founded in 2016 by the co-founders of TapCommerce, a mobile marketing platform that was acquired by Twitter in 2014.
Attentive is building strategic alliances with the world’s best agencies, technology and eCommerce platform partners who evangelize our solution to their clients. The partner ecosystem is a significant, and fast-growing, part of Attentive’s core revenue strategy - empowering deal flow via referrals, heightened close/won rates, and broader network exposure for our rapidly expanding mobile messaging platform. As part of the Partnerships team, the Partner Manager will be responsible for helping expand Attentive’s top-line revenue and client list through the signing, management, and expansion of key partnerships.
Strong relationship building, presentation, and sales (within Agency, SaaS or Channel Sales) experience are a must. You'll get the best of both worlds: the opportunity to join a new team and shape the future of our company whilst working with the best digital and eCommerce agency partners in North America. This is a great opportunity for an entrepreneurial self-starter who is comfortable in a dynamic, fast-paced environment and enjoys creating mutually beneficial relationships with partners to drive business together.
