We are seeking an ambitious Hong Kong based salesperson to join Artsy’s Gallery Partnerships Team and help grow our gallery listing service in Asia and Oceania.
The Gallery Partnerships Team defines and pitches Artsy's value proposition to galleries, driving subscription revenue to sustain Artsy's long-term mission of making art accessible to everyone. Working on the Gallery Partnerships Team is a unique opportunity to not only help build an incredible online resource for the art world but also be on the front lines of powering Artsy’s business goals.
Your primary responsibilities include research for and outreach to prospective gallery partners, maintaining a full pipeline of prospects, and efficiently closing deals with galleries. The ideal candidate is a confident, articulate ambassador for Artsy who is equally comfortable strolling the aisles at major art fairs as digging into Salesforce to meticulously track outreach efforts and improve conversion rates.
A track record of over-acheivement in sales and an eagerness to apply those skills to Artsy’s offering for gallery partners. Proficiency in Mandarin is a major advantage.
This candidate will work with our HK gallery liaisons, and spearhead the growth of our gallery partnerships in Asia and Oceania. The role includes travel to key art fairs throughout the Asia-Pacific and offers on-the-ground experience across the region.
Artsy’s mission is to make all the world’s art accessible to anyone with an Internet connection. We are a resource for art collecting and education.
Artsy features the world’s leading galleries, museum collections, foundations, artist estates, art fairs, and benefit auctions, all in one place. Our growing database of 400,000 images of art, architecture, and design by 50,000 artists spans historical, modern, and contemporary works, and includes the largest online database of contemporary art. Artsy is used by art lovers, museum-goers, patrons, collectors, students, and educators to discover, learn about, and collect art.
At Artsy there are no specific work hours or policies, no pointless bureaucracy. We only care that you achieve inspiring results and are a joy to work with. This means you must be highly energetic, enthusiastic, and resourceful—no problem is too big or too small for you to tackle. You will enjoy both responsibility and autonomy in your work.
WORKING AT ARTSY
In addition to our vision of a world where art is as popular as music, Artsy has five core values that will inform your experience at Artsy.
Art x Science: We believe in uniting empathy with logic, emotion with data, and intuition with research in everything we do. Whether in business strategy or design, culture or code, we seek the magic that happens when the often separate worlds of art and science come together.
People are Paramount: We spend extraordinary energy finding the best person for a job—and once found, we give them the trust and autonomy to be CEO of their role. We avoid pointless bureaucracy and prefer to empower people with information rather than limit them with process.
Quality Worthy of Art: We aim to create an experience worthy of all the world’s art and so hold ourselves to the highest standards in all our work. We believe that the best long term quality comes from rapid shipping, iterating, and learning as we go.
Positive Energy: We know positivity and optimism benefit our work, and we harness positive energy as a vehicle towards greater awareness, growth, and collaboration. We believe in cultivating a positive relationship to art as opposed to one based on exclusivity or scarcity.
Openness: We believe in being open with each other and the world—whether in open-sourcing our code, sharing feedback, or building a diverse and inclusive work culture. We believe in bringing our full selves to work and manifesting an open world where everyone has access to art.
Artsy is an equal opportunity employer. We value a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture. We encourage applications from all qualified individuals without regard to race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, national origin, marital status, disability, and veteran status.
