  • Cultivate a network of strong, lasting relationships with a host of sports partners (gyms, climbing halls, yoga studios, outdoor activities, etc.) through in-person and phone conversations 
  • Identify the needs of potential partners and demonstrate how Urban Sports Club can assist them in meeting these needs and help them grow
  •  Ensure any challenges facing the partnerships in your city are resolved quickly and sufficiently for everyone involved

What you need to succeed 

  • You have successfully completed your college education or equivalent and have some experience in partner or customer acquisition, either over the phone or in person
  • You carry yourself with confidence, communicate with ease, love social interactions, and enjoy negotiating 
  • You thrive on convincing and, ultimately, satisfying partners/customers
  • You are a highly-motivated, proactive self-starter who works well autonomously and on a team
  • You are organized, conscientious, and detail-oriented 
  • You have a good working knowledge of Excel, Word, and PowerPoint.
  • Your native language is Italian, but you are also proficient in English. German is a plus. 
  • You are eager to join a young and dynamic startup where you can learn, grow, and take on new responsibilities every day  
  • You identify with our goals and mission - you are enthusiastic about sports, fitness, and technology, and are willing to go the extra mile to inspire people to lead a happy and healthy life

Our offer to you 

  • An indefinite contract and full-time position at a mission-driven workplace where your daily tasks will help people lead a happy and healthy life. 
  • The opportunity to have a measurable impact within a fast-growing, innovative, and performance-driven company during the outset of its international market expansion
  • A flat hierarchy that embraces ownership and promotes creative freedom. Your voice will be heard. 
  • “Workout. Life. Balance.” Life happens, and work can’t always come first. We support you in finding a way to balance the two.
  • Lots of learning opportunities — we enable you to grow both personally and professionally.
  • Many additional perks including: regular office events, foreign language classes, periodic home office, table football, community breakfasts, fully-equipped kitchens with healthy snacks & beverages, employee referral bonuses, and more
