Marketing & Operations Executive

Job description


About SailSide

SailSide is a peer-to-peer boat rental platform. Sailside allows owners of all types of boats, from sailboats to yachts, to post their boats for rent or charter for free. Everywhere in the world, users search, find and book a boat they would like to rent. The mission is to open the world of boats to enthusiasts and owners. Given that the average boat is only used 8% of the year, boat owners gain the possibility of owning a boat profitably, earning an income from their under-utilised resource.


About the role

As a Marketing & Operations Executive of a small and fast-growing startup you will be very hands-on and have the context to step up and take leadership of several projects and business initiatives. Whatever you do will directly impact the success of the company. We expect you to be a hustler who doesn't take no for an answer and has an impeccable work ethic.
