Overview

With over 10,000 online merchants launching subscriptions and over 1,000,000 subscribers powered by ReCharge, we have a lot of store owners to support. Our mission to make repeat orders easier began five years ago as a bootstrapped startup and today we're at the forefront of recurring billing software with over 150 remote-first employees around the globe processing tens of millions of dollars in sales every week.

To execute our growth strategy we are looking for a Partner Manager to help us support the ReCharge Sales and Partnerships Team. As a Partner Manager you’ll be responsible for owning the management and delivery of assigned partner events projects, acting as liaison among merchants, sales, marketing, account management, product development and external vendors. 

What You'll Do

A real day in the life of a partner manager

  • 8:00 Gmail + tea
  • 9:00 Zendesk + coffee (things are ramping up, extra caffeine needed)
  • 9:30 Daily scrape (going through yesterday’s signups to uncover new agencies)
  • 9:50 Partner DM on slack - one of my 50 partners has an emergency and needs attention. A build that was supposed to launch today has migration issues. Looping in Solutions Engineering for extra eyes on the issue.
  • 10:00 Scheduled call with agency partner (things get a bit hectic, slacking with other partner to resolve migration issue while being on the phone with the agency - talk about multitasking!)
  • 11:00 Updating hubspot (CRM) making sure agency intros are handled
  • 12:00 Lunch! 
    13:00 Stepping through a proposed build with an agency (agencies often want confirmation on their proposed build making sure it will work on ReCharge)
  • 13:30 Daily phone + email outreach to some of my partners (goal is to keep every one of my 50 partners engaged and updated on latest features - that takes a lot of reaching out!)
  • 16:00 Finished with outreach for the day
  • 18:00 Local event hosted by a tech partner (always important to be present at events within our ecosystem)

A month in the life of a partner manager

  • See three to five builds launch through agencies that were nurtured and guided by you (and get heaps of thanks from partners when things go well!)
  • Bring in $15,000,000 of annual processing pipeline of good enough quality so sales to close $6,500,000 of annual processing out of it
  • Spend 3 weeks at home and 1 week traveling meeting agency partners in cities like New York, San Diego, Toronto and Atlanta (or wherever the partners are)
  • Speak to half of your partners in depth including going through their client list and prospective clients
  • Had two partner calls every day and sent out a dozen partner related emails

    • Educating; ensuring all key partners’ wider teams are well informed of new product release and roadmap.  This is typically driven through remote or in-person “lunch and learn” sessions or bringing agencies to our workshop series.
    • Prioritization. Having confidence in the Partners we’re staking as “Strategic” - continually requalifying their position and being comfortable making tough decisions to de-prioritize where appropriate.  Being aware of the fast-moving ecosystem and managing a changing funnel of agency prospects yet to be engaged.
  • Partner: Ensure we’re valued as a “top tier” partner to our agencies, that ReCharge is seen as providing a genuine value-addition and is an organic part of their recommended tech stack.
    • They should feel confident we have a genuine interest in the growth and development of their business/team and that we’re supporting that. PMs should ensure their partners are heard by building feedback loops on product requests, bug flags and involving them with our Product Managers where appropriate.
    • Make them feel confident they’re getting the right advice and responses, even if that is a difficult position of saying “no” or realigning expectations.
    • Continually do the right thing for our Partners and shared merchants.
    • In summary: “We have a far better relationship with ReCharge than any other partner by a landslide. That’s based on shared vision, ethics and good business behaviour.” - Thomas, Scoutside
  • Company: Embrace all the core concepts of ReCharge. 
    • Empathy; we are supporting individuals and teams who are building businesses alongside and based-on ReCharge. 
    • The Partner team’s impact on revenue and growth is significant, to sustain our growth we need to Ownership of how and where we can drive additional dealflow and value with our agencies. 
    • The agency ecosystem moves quickly and we’re a small team.
