Their mission

They believe that everyone deserves to live in a decent home and that the environments they inhabit have a massive influence on their ability to enjoy life and prosper. One in five households in the UK live in social housing, a sector with the right values at its core but that has historically struggled to deploy innovations in the home. Many residents still can’t afford to heat their homes and live in cold, mouldy properties they can’t be proud of.

 They believe that radical innovation in internet-connected technology can ensure that every resident, every day, is living in a home that allows them to succeed. That’s why their products are built not just on great technology, but on an understanding of what people want from the space they live in.

This approach led us to reimagine the most mundane household object, a thermostat, into a product that automatically reduces energy bills, looks great and oers control to those who want it. They are also revolutionising the way social landlords manage their housing stock with an obsessively tailored SAAS property dashboard and handy alerts on things like when the boiler is going to break.

their next project is to build the ultimate connected hub for the social home. It’s going to revolutionise the way residents interact with their homes and landlords manage their properties. 

Their journey

They may be only 6 years old, but it’s already been quite a ride. Their thermostat is already in 45 of the UK’s biggest housing providers.

They’re growing 100% year on year and are backed by some of the best-known investors in technology and social impact. They are a small team of 25 passionate and ambitious people driven by a collective desire to make a positive impact in the housing sector, both for residents and landlords.

They are looking for a motivated individual to be an essential part of their team, supporting the beating “heart” of the business and their new customers. 

Your responsibilities

As a Head of Sales/Commercial Director you will be responsible for their new business commercial leadership through their business development and marketing functions. You will set and be accountable for new business revenue targets, their business pipeline and marketing effectiveness.

In this role, you will provide inspirational and supportive leadership to two business development managers and a marketing manager. In time you will be a key stakeholder in helping us hire more talented people into the sales team as they grow. 

This is a senior leadership role at the business and you can expect to join the Senior Leadership Team to steer the future direction of the business.

They have plans for international expansion and you will play a key role in all future company developments as they take on that challenge together. 

The role

They are a company built on a strong technical foundation. You will need to be competent at picking up and explaining technical concepts to customers as well as be able to understand their product and services.

Who You Are

These are ideal but not required as they know some people are less likely to apply for the role unless they are 100% qualified. They promote a diverse, inclusive and empowering culture at the business:

They look for people who share their values and can add to their culture. Values are shared beliefs that guide their decision-making, and culture is how they function as a group and how they live their values as individuals.
