Work with us

We have a reputation for being a no-nonsense bunch who get the job done. We’re always on the lookout for new ideas and we’re right at the centre of the startup scene, but we’ll never pursue novelty for novelty’s sake. That said, we did once demonstrate a giant LED wall by playing Mario Kart on it. You can check out the code for that and other Solid State projects over on GitHub. Our engineers are some of the best in the business, averaging 10+ years of experience – so when we bring in someone new, they need to know their stuff and be prepared to roll their sleeves up.

Here’s who we’re looking for right now

Job title:
New business exec
Salary range:
£50,000 — 60,000

Solid State Group is an award-winning technical agency.

Working to lean principles, we create concepts and bring them to life on the web, mobile and connected devices. We build critical systems for large corporates, and agile platforms for startups.

We're based in Shoreditch and we have one of the best agile development teams in the world.

We are looking for a new sales exec to take over an already full pipeline and grow it in conjunction with our new growth strategy.

Ideal candidate

  • Eagerness and ability to learn quickly
  • Passion and enthusiasm to work within a small tech agency
  • Experience in sales, software or technical consulting industry
  • Has a confident and knowledgeable demeanour, not pushy sales tactics

Responsibilities

  • Responsible for creating leads
  • Communication of our technical stack, process and value proposition to large corporates and new startups
  • Generate pitches for clients and deliver them in pitch meetings
  • High activity levels with cold calls, email and physical networking to achieve targets
  • Qualify inbound leads and enquiries
  • Utilise internal tools like Slack, CRM, Dropbox, Google Apps
  • Report weekly on pipeline and targets

Benefits

We're very social and gather round the table on Thursday evenings to share any knowledge gained that week along with a few meantimes. We also execute internal hack days on a quarterly basis to generate new ideas and play with new tech.

We have freshly ground coffee, weekly fruit deliveries, a barbecue on the balcony which we use quite often and two company outings per year – our last one was to SXSW in Austin TX!

Some of the startups we build are our own internal ideas. So if you have a burning passion, like Andy did with dugoutfc.com, then we might just end up building that too.
