Who we are

We are a highly ambitious team; focused and truly collaborative. We empower people to take ownership through meaningful and impactful work.  We exist to help people and the planet, it’s a big statement but one you’ll wear with pride. 

Raylo is here to change how people get their tech for good. That means giving them access to the products they really want, but doing so in a responsible, sustainable way. 

We provide Seamless Circularity, where every device gets an extended life through our automatic, effortless cycle of refurb, reuse and recycle. 

Our secret sauce is leasing. By providing a subscription alternative, we're cracking open a staid old market and bringing real change to consumers and the environment. Less waste, better value. We’re serious - we want to lead the change in consumption of consumer technology.

Life at Raylo
• We are an organically collaborative and dynamic team
• We embrace innovation, seek out challenges and always aim for excellence
• We take big risks, celebrate our wins, and learn from our mistakes
• We help each other by listening, challenging thought and continually improving
• We live our mission, walk in our customers’ shoes, focus and execute, and are a curious and gritty bunch

What to Expect  

We’re looking for an outstanding Sales & Partnerships Manager to drive and support the rollout of Raylo Pay to UK merchants. Raylo Pay is a checkout integration, enabling merchants to sell products on subscription - which means more revenue, happier customers and less waste.

Raylo is going to be big and this is a golden opportunity to join us early in our scale-up journey and execute against an established pipeline of large merchants. You’ll report directly to the Chief Commercial Officer and be one of our early dedicated Sales hires. The successful candidate will work closely with the CCO to convert the existing pipeline and develop new merchant relationships across the UK.

You’ll be working in a cross-functional team with smart people who are passionate about our mission and product. We’ve got great tech which allows us to move fast and create an awesome customer experience.

What you’ll do:

    • Manage and execute our merchant pipeline in the UK 
    • Become an expert in the needs of our customers - through a combination of research and experience - to develop compelling, tailored value propositions
    • Produce the right content and collateral necessary to progress client discussions through the sales pipeline journey
    • Build an activity planner covering identification, approach, contact, meetings, proposals, and closure.
    • Own the core commercial components - from forecasting & business planning to pricing & client business cases to closing contract negotiations
    • Work closely with the senior team on our Raylo Pay strategy and enhancing our go-to-market approach
    • Build strong customer relationships with senior audiences
    • You’ll know the risks and challenges and how to navigate them
    • Work in a small cross functional team to achieve the shared targets
    • Prioritise, prioritise, prioritise. Make decisions quickly without necessarily consensus, but bring others on the journey
    • Plug the gaps. We’re a start-up and there isn’t always a person to do what you need. You’ll need to be comfortable doing it yourself

What we’re looking for:

    • Passionate about changing the way in which people get technology, creating a win-win for customers and the planet
    • At least 4 years’ PoS sales experience in financial services, ideally BNPL  – with strengths in B2B2C business development & sales strategy
    • Excellent communication & presentation skills – supporting engagement with senior stakeholders from large merchants
    • Good understanding of the Consumer Tech sector is an advantage
    • Ability to focus on what’s most important and good at saying ‘no’
    • You’ll be entrepreneurial: capable of thinking strategically, getting your hands dirty and comfortable with ambiguity
    • You’re naturally curious (or a bit nosy), you like to ask questions and understand how things work
    • Strong analytical skills and a data driven approach to problem solving
    • Ability to work as part of a high-performing team
    • Ability to deeply understand our customers and create fantastic customer proposition
We’re not looking for you to meet every point on this job description, please still get in touch if you think you could add value and do your best work here at Raylo. We'd love to have a chat and see if you could be a great fit.
