Spreedly is the world's leading Payments Orchestration solution. Our vision is that the world is better with a diversified, inclusive payment ecosystem. Our mission is to accelerate commerce with an open, secure, and flexible payment platform that welcomes all payment participants. Backed by Spectrum Equity, with a $75M investment, Spreedly is experiencing rapid growth.
We now serve 600 customers globally. Many of these direct customers are platforms and marketplaces that have thousands of their merchants leveraging our payments platform. Our customers include industry leaders in digital goods, order ahead and delivery, online marketplaces, donation/giving platforms, event ticketing, and financial services.
Our employees help us execute against our vision through building a culture focused on autonomy, transparency, and collaboration in a dynamic, high-growth organization.
As the Strategic Account Manager, your role will be focused on establishing and nurturing strategic accounts within Latin America and Spanish-speaking regions. You'll be tasked with cultivating relationships with our premier customers in these areas, ensuring their success, and driving business value tailored to their specific needs.
Your approach will involve aligning our solutions with the primary business initiatives of our Latin American and Spanish-speaking clients to maximize mutual benefits. Acting as a consultative and trusted advisor, you'll serve as the executive contact for these customers, effectively communicating Spreedly's value proposition within their ecosystem.
Your main objective will be to lead the overall account strategy, foster strong relationships, and expand our presence within the customer's organization and its subsidiaries in Latin America and Spanish-speaking regions. This will entail fostering cross-functional collaboration and alignment among various departments and teams to address strategic and product-related inquiries effectively. At times, it may necessitate conducting external research or leveraging prior background knowledge within the focal region to inform Spreedly's decisions.
Furthermore, as a Strategic Account Manager, you will be responsible for contract negotiation, pricing strategies, and creating solid internal partnerships to ensure consistency and uniformity in serving our premier accounts. Your role will also encompass owning the growth strategy within these accounts, driving expansion and maximizing their potential.
