to start May 2020
(applications for this role close on 31st March)
Elements Technology is a venture-capital backed developer of novel software solutions for the manufacturing industry, based in Sheffield City Centre. Our first product Elements Docket enables manufacturers to track and visualise production from anywhere using our web-based platform. Our products target the 99% of manufacturers that are SMEs, in the growing market of Industry 4.0 which is worth a combined £55bn. We've recently been named as one of Yorkshire's 50 most exciting companies, and were ranked 14th on SmartTech's Innovators list.
We have recently raised further investment to expand sales of Elements Docket, and are looking for employee number 8 to help grow our sales. As an early employee you will be offered share options in the company; and you will have opportunities to quickly climb the career ladder as we employ more staff in future years. Working in a startup also allows you to have a direct influence on the success of the company, something you rarely get at a blue-chip company.
We are looking for an Account Manager to help generate leads and increase our sales within the manufacturing industry. You will need to be self-motivated and pro-active; using your knowledge of manufacturing to create connections, attend events and build our presence.
We are looking for a natural communicator, someone who is confident at engaging with manufacturers and who can maintain relationships to retain our customers. We pride ourselves on being a friendly bunch that provide excellent customer service.
We are flexible as to where and when you work, with all members of staff mixing their time between the office and working from home. We are even open to discussing a part-time contract with particularly exceptional candidates.
Due to the nature of the work and the remote locations of some of our customers, we require applicants to have a full UK driving licence and use of their own vehicle.

What's the structure?
We are going to be using a three step process, with Stages 2 and 3 taking place over the course of the first two weeks of April. We expect that the successful candidate will start with us in Mid May, allowing you to give one month notice from the job being offered.

What contact can I expect to receive and when?
