Job description:

As an Acquisition Team Leader, you and your team are responsible for non-member organizers on specific Tripaneer theme vacation websites or regions. You will be the frontline to communicate with specific non-member organizers about their accounts and the services / features we provide for them to increase their conversion rate with the ultimate goal of converting non-members into members.

You will coordinate and manage all processes leading up to finalizing partnerships with non-member organizers (e.g., establishing first contact with non-member organizers, meetings, and follow ups) and the support to the team’s daily tasks, as well as collaborate with other Supply teams to ensure the overall growth in supply. You will also monitor the performance and success of all non-member organizers and manage non-member organizer relationships.

As a leader at Tripaneer, you have the desire to understand the business you are in and the drive to develop it further.  You will work with people in your team, both in the office you are located in as well as remote.  You take pleasure in challenging them and developing them into stronger acquisition specialists.  Improving how we work together with our organizers and how we improve their performance is what you do.

You will be creating a community for your team’s organizers and for your team itself.

 

Responsibilities:

  • Effectively lead, develop, and supervise the Acquisition team.
  • Drive the Acquisition team to successfully deliver and achieve acquisition targets.

    • Processing intake of new inquiry for non-member organizers.
    • Monitoring the conversion of non-member to member organizers.
    • Identifying the inactive subset of non-member organizers and develop ongoing strategies to bring them to membership status.

Your level of responsibility and tasks will grow quickly based on excellent performance. We are also looking for people who can develop on a personal and professional scale along with our growing business.

You will receive an intensive training and work closely with the Inventory team, Editing team and Account Management team to ensure that the work is clear for you. Later on, you will make sure that the work is well prioritized and scoped for your team to deliver successfully. You will work with your team in submitting weekly progress reports; the same will be the case in working with your manager. When needed, we will have direct, email or telephone contact.
