About Latasa

I looking for someone extroverted. Someone good at talking with people, making business contacts, good at networking, and promoting. My product is an online marketplace with a focus in the wedding industry. The wedding industry is a multi-billion dollar business and your responsibility is to focus on businesses. My ideal candidate would need to be good at finding the first few customers, then eventually managing a sales force. It would be great to have previous experience or at managing/creating a business start-up.

I am hard working and highly demanding of myself, and I expect a partner equally hard working and highly demanding. I have a Bachelors and Masters of Science in Computer Science with expertise in user experience and web development. I also have extreme drive and passion, and I expect a partner with equal drive and passion. I do not expect you to stay up throughout the night, but I do expect you to work smarter not harder in all cases. I am also looking for someone to be experienced when it comes to starting a business, running a business, and making connections. Having experience when it comes to running an online based company is preferable.

More specifically, I am looking for someone with strategic marketing & sales skills with business development experience. This position will be responsible for all aspects of the sales process with a focus on growing year-over-year sales. They will be responsible for the direction and management of all sales and business development operations and activities.

I am looking for a candidate with experience in closing sales (including outside sales), attending local events related to business or wedding industry, and overseeing sales with current and prospective customers. It may require travelling for in-person meetings and partnering with local nearby businesses.

It's important for the candidate to own the responsibility for growing the company's sales over time.
