Who We Are
PowerSpike is a media & technology company focused on building the most compelling and streamlined destination for activating sponsorships within gaming communities. PowerSpike collaborates with 20,000+ gaming and esports influencers to execute premium, authentic influencer marketing campaigns. PowerSpike’s influencer network reaches over 125M viewers every month and grew over 1000% in 2018. The 4-year-old company is backed by Techstars, Cox Enterprises, the Sixers Innovation Lab, the Dorm Room Fund, and Ocean Azul Partners.
What we’re building
PowerSpike is building the world’s first Influencer Exchange. Think Google Ads meets influencers.
Like a traditional ad exchange, where buyers can place bids for ads in real-time, PowerSpike’s technology instead enables brands to bid on influencers. We’re taking the simple and streamlined experience of programmatic advertising, and combining it with the authenticity of influencer marketing to deliver instantly scalable influencer campaigns.
Currently focused on the gaming space, our technology enables brands like Intuit TurboTax and Activision Blizzard to launch influencer campaigns across our network of over 20,000+ Twitch streamers, just like they'd make a media buy.
Your work will directly help influencers pursue their dreams and assist some of the biggest brands in the world in streamlining their influencer marketing efforts.
What we need
We’re looking for a results driven, goal focused, and deadline oriented Sales Director. We are looking for a self-starter who is motivated, hungry and doesn’t like to be micro-managed. You will be responsible for bringing in new revenue from brands, ad agencies and gaming companies who have a need to get their product or service in front of the Twitch/Mixer audience. With Twitch numbers increasing by 12% in the past month, this is a hot space where brands and ad agencies will be looking to spend their marketing dollars.
Working closely with the Influencer Operations, Influencer Acquisition, and Accounts team, and reporting directly to the CEO, you will be responsible for setting up meetings/calls with decision makers at ad agencies, brands and gaming companies in order to sell them the PowerSpike Platform and the ability to work with streamers. Your work will directly help thousands of creators to make streaming their full-time career.
We value learning, creativity, radical candor, positivity and collaboration - and as one of the first people at PowerSpike, we’re looking for someone who can help us define our culture and processes for years to come. Simply put, we believe in hiring A+ people, giving them clarity in what success means, and then supporting them to their fullest potential.
