The Role

We are looking for a highly driven, entrepreneurial Account Manager to join our sales team. You will be responsible for building and maintaining relationships with our existing clients, supporting them throughout their contracts, and for renewals. This is an opportunity to bring a compelling and innovative experience already in use at top brands to more retailers, and to work with leading fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands reimagining the future of retail. You should be highly motivated by emerging tech and highly interested in fashion, e-commerce, branding and retail. You are someone who wants to work really hard to have a big impact on growing a business and disrupting an industry. You are someone who is really good at persuading people to come with you where you lead them.

Our most important company value is hard work – we are looking for a dedicated and hardworking team member who understands what it takes to make an early-stage startup successful. And that a startup is not a 9-to-5 job. Someone who can work really fast and be flexible. Someone who wants to make a big impact by working on innovative technology.

This position is based full-time in New York City and is not remote or hybrid.

Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

As set forth in Obsess’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
