Business Development Manager (Enterprise Sales)

Santa Monica, United States

At Surkus, our mission is to create more meaningful connections between people and brands through memorable experiences in the real and digital worlds.

We are founded on a simple concept:

1. Our members get free access to experiences that others pay for, along with exclusive digital offers.

2. In exchange, Surkus members agree to perform tasks defined by the experience or offer provider (or partner), such as check-in via the app, post on Instagram, upload a receipt image, or provide feedback.

How it Works:

The Surkus platform utilizes a matchmaking algorithm to pair members with experiences or offers suited to their interests, whether that be food & drink events, wellness festivals, concerts, fashion & beauty pop-ups, special online offers and much more.

For partners, Surkus provides an automated marketing solution that delivers awareness & engagement, attendance, purchase, social amplification, and deep insights into their target customers.

Our technology is powered by a group of driven, talented, and aspirational people who want to make a real impact worldwide. Surkus members have participated in 10,000+ events/experiences and we are scaling globally!
