Employment type
Full time

Salary: we are excited to be looking for a Chief Revenue Officer / Commercial Director (what the role could be will depend on experience). We're usually very transparent with salary (because a lack of salary is usually a 🚩 ) but, because of the nature of this role, the range would be enormous! Therefore, we're advertising the role without a remuneration band and welcome open conversations about salary 😊

Here at Flexa, we’re on a mission to bring transparency to the global hiring market 🌍

But what does that mean 🤔

Flexa is the global directory of verified flexible companies. 

The way we work has changed forever. The best people and companies believe that workplace flexibility should be non-negotiable. We help them find each other. 

We have over 500,000 users, work with 180+ companies, and we have just closed our £2.3m Seed Round… So, we are looking for someone to come in as our first ever senior leadership hire (outside of the Co-Founders). 

This role is a pivotal hire for Flexa and will take full ownership of the Commercial Department, providing strategic guidance, extensive management expertise, and impressive commercial experience. 

More info on the role 📩

This role will take ownership of both new and retained business, throughout the customer lifecycle. The successful applicant will have total autonomy and responsibility over shaping Flexa’s future on the B2B side of the business. 

This role will directly oversee a team of three people to begin with: our Head of Sales, Krys; our Sales Executive, Sophie; and our Account Manager, Oliver. The CRO / Commercial Director will also be in charge of growing the Commercial team and leading on hiring decisions. 

Ultimately, we are searching for a highly strategic and super-smart individual with brilliant commercial acumen and the drive to scale the B2B side of the business. 

The key things that we will be looking for in applicants 🔑

  • Senior commercial experience at a tech startup / scaleup; big bonus points for HR Tech

  • Strategic leadership experience

  • B2B sales experience with both new and existing clients

  • Willingness to learn and take full ownership of your role

  • A love for flexible working and a true belief in the potential of the Flexa platform

If you think this is your dream job and you’d be amazing at it, but you don’t tick all the boxes, then we’d still love to hear from you and why you think this is the perfect role for you. 

What can we offer you? 🎁

  • We (genuinely!) think this is an awesome opportunity to work with a talented group of individuals building a product that will change the way we think about work forever. 

  • c.45 days holiday! We offer 2 week-long company shut down periods, plus 25 days holiday, plus bank holidays. 

  • Flexible working! Work wherever you want (we can only support being based in the UK at the moment, though). We meet once a month in London for a co-working day and some drinks afterwards.

  • An office that you can use if you wish, based near Broadway Market in East London; for this role, we’d hope to have a little more face-to-face time than once a month (maybe 1 or 2 days per week in the office, but we can be flexible).

  • Generous annual company and personal performance based bonus.

  • A very easy-going but driven team that wants to enjoy work and the team we work with.

  • A culture where we care about output, not how many hours you work. You will be given autonomy from day one, but we will always be here to help and guide.

  • Generous employee share options scheme.

We are a fast-growth startup and, generally, we have great work-life balance and don’t want or need people to work long hours, but some weeks are busier than others.

We believe that a flexible working environment is a more inclusive working environment, and we are committed to making sure that Flexa is as inclusive as possible, so please never hesitate to talk to us about your wishes, needs, and circumstances.
