Program Leads are the face of We Roam's experience abroad. You will be the main point of contact for our Roamers - handling everything from travel and accommodation logistics to running successful professional and social events. We are looking to make this a hybrid sales role, so you will also be responsible for interviewing new potential candidates and moving them through the full cycle of our admissions process (from scheduling an initial interview to having the contract signed/paid).
You will be traveling internationally with the group for the duration of the trip (12-months) and will help foster a strong sense of community and development throughout. There are 2 program leads assigned to each trip.
The perfect candidate is someone that is extremely organized, can work through ambiguity and quickly changing roles/rules/processes, has a hustle mentality, can think proactively, is a problem solver and wants to grow with a quickly growing company. Startup or small team experience is a huge plus. We are a very small team, so the above characteristics will show almost immediately, or lack-there-of.
Timeline: The 12-month trip will start this March 2018 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. 4.

Assist in coordinating trip logistics - Assign accommodation to individual roamers, coordinate arrivals/check-ins, and be the liaison between the Roamer and accommodation management when necessary - Interact and coordinate logistics with workspaces in each city to guarantee that Roamers have excellent 24/7 workspaces - Coordinate and manage travel arrangements between destinations. This includes, but is not limited to, arranging meeting points, transfers to and from the airports, and corresponding with our designated airfare partner in regards to travel logistics and ensuring Roamers get from Point A to B in a safe and efficient manner

This requires full understanding of our company, the product, and key market differentiators, as well as being charismatic about the industry as a whole.

Our ideal candidate has 1-2 years of sales experience.
