Company : SidelineSwap
Event Coordinator (buyer)
Sales & Business Development
Make it easy for athletes and sports families to sell their gear by coordinating pop-up trade-in events throughout your region.
We’ll train you to be an expert at running sporting goods pop-up trade-in events, including how to set-up events, build relationships with our partners who are hosting the events, buy used inventory using our new trade-in value guide and event software, provide great customer experiences, and manage part-time staff members. Most of your event schedule will be planned for you, and as you get more comfortable in your role you’ll have an opportunity to plan additional events and buying opportunities.
You’ll learn to run your own business unit and think like an entrepreneur. In addition to coordinating events, you’ll learn to focus on the profitability of your territory by reviewing reports and performance metrics that drive our business results and maximize your income.
This is a new business unit for SidelineSwap with lots of opportunities for growth in the years ahead. You’ll be joining a growing team of regional coordinators who you’ll work with to develop and share best practices. It’s an entry-level position great for hard-working college grads, or someone looking to make a career change.
All team members receive competitive compensation and bonus opportunities, health benefits, and stock options.
SidelineSwap is the #1 online marketplace in sports. Since we launched in 2015, more than a million athletes have joined our community to buy and sell their gear and we were recently named one of the fastest-growing marketplaces on Andreessen Horowitz’s A16z Top 100 marketplace list (https://future.a16z.com/marketplace-100/).
Our small team is fully-remote. We operate in a highly autonomous, yet collaborative environment. And our curiosity inspires us to become better versions of ourselves every day. (Learn more about our company values and how we work.)
We recently partnered with leading retailers, like Dick’s Sporting Goods, to power the circular economy in sports through our new trade-in program. Our goal is to make it easy for sports families to sell their gear wherever they shop or play.
Join us as we empower athletes by increasing access to sports.
