As the Partnerships Specialist working within the broader Marketing team, you will play a key role in growing and maintaining our Partnership channel. Your prime responsibilities will be identifying new partnership and business development opportunities and engaging/negotiating with potential partners.  You will also use data to optimize existing partnerships, while onboarding and maintaining current relationships. 

By working closely with the other members of the Marketing team, you will work to grow our Partnership channel and attract new partners to help drive Helcim’s growth. This is a great opportunity to join a fast-paced, growing fintech startup and take on a lot of responsibility right from day one. At Helcim, and especially in this role, your work has a direct, tangible impact, every single day.

  • Identify, develop, and grow business opportunities for the Partnership channel
  • Build authentic relationships with partners and affiliates 
  • Be an advocate for Helcim and its Partner Program through multiple communication channels
  • Review program applications and onboard new partners 
  • Work with the internal stakeholders team to identify new lead opportunities and grow the company 
  • Participating in reporting activities relevant to your channel

Your qualifications

  • Direct experience working on affiliate marketing, partnerships, or sales teams
  • Outstanding communication skills and the ability to simply convey complex information and concepts
  • A foundational understanding of digital marketing and affiliate marketing
  • Familiarity with Google Suite, Affiliate Marketing platforms (Awin, Commission Junction, Partnerstack, etc) 
  • Ability to understand and utilize data to evaluate existing partnerships and to identify new opportunities.

Who you are

  • First and foremost, a people person. A natural networker with high EQ who can’t wait to meet anyone and everyone to understand their business, their goals, and their challenges 
  • A friendly, charismatic and honest deal-maker, confident and enthusiastic about connecting with people and sharing ideas
  • Someone who is equally comfortable working independently and collaborating with a team
  • You are a motivated individual who thrives in the dynamic, unstructured environment of a scale-up. You are hungry for growth, impact,  and results
  • A big picture thinker with the ability to understand the impacts around their decisions
  • You have a positive and resilient attitude and can persevere through tough days. When you are met with failure (or a “no”), you see it is a learning opportunity, not a roadblock
