Senior Account Executive
Luster specializes in high-tech experiential activations that enable event guests, fans, and social followers, to engage with brands in truly unique ways. In 2011, we invented Hashtag Printing and today our products have been featured at over 1,500 events in 200 cities across the world, including iconic cultural experiences like the Grammy Awards, Olympics, Super Bowl, and Comic-Con International. Headquartered in Brooklyn, NY, our offices now wrap the globe in ten different countries.
With an ever-growing client list, we’re adding new team members and experiencing record company growth. We've achieved this with a highly motivated and diversely skilled crew. We’re looking for people who want to be part of something from the beginning, and help grow it a global powerhouse.
We are looking for highly motivated candidates who demonstrate an ability to build rapport with clients, listen for their business challenges, and deliver meaningful solutions. You appreciate the needs of events professionals and are a natural at connecting with them, helping discover value and previously unseen benefits. Throughout your career, you have demonstrated skills negotiating business terms with line-of-business, senior management and/or C-level executives. We are looking for someone who has experienced success in building long-term relationships and is confident in crafting custom deals.
This is a high profile role, where you will be managing relationships with multiple senior stakeholders on accounts that require strong business acumen, financial analysis, and communication skills. Some travel to meet in-person with prospects will be expected. Creative problem solving is a must.
You'll be part of a hard-working sales team and will be expected to work closely with our operations team to ensure a seamless end-to-end experience for our clients. In this role, you will develop relationships with partners of great strategic size and significance (some potentially Inbound but primarily through your own prospecting) and will be responsible for securing business.
You care about managing expectations both internally and externally and thrive when working in a fast-paced environment. This role requires a self starter with a “let’s get it done” attitude who knows how to make the most of his or her time.

Luster is a truly unique company - a profitable, growing start-up that has never taken any outside investment and has no plans to exit.
