3500 W 75th Street
Prairie Village, KS

Local Business Partnership Manager, Kansas City

Why this job is important

The quality of our small business partners, and our mutually-trusting relationships with them is the foundation of our entire business. Without those partners invested in a long-term, trusting partnership, we have no reputation, no service, and no business.

This role is the bricklayer of the foundation for the entire company. It is a job that is challenging to perfect, but is the backbone of what we do at Zaarly. Your work holds up every other piece that our team is working on.

Their first impression of us, and whether we conduct ourselves with speed, efficiency, and effectiveness during their recruiting and screening process is of critical importance to our partners’ trust in us for the entire life of our partnership.

About Zaarly

Zaarly is dedicated to solving the greatest difficulty in homeownership – finding and maintaining connections with reliable, professional service providers to care for your home.

We are only interested in win-win arrangements with our partners. We never sell ads or leads, and we don’t require contracts or commitments. Zaarly only makes money when we deliver real value to our partners, and we work hard to do exactly that every day.

What you will learn on this job

This job will teach you to become a virtuoso of sales to small businesses. You will become talented (to the point of blissful enjoyment of your craft) at finding ways to create and communicate value to business owners.

This includes:

  1. Creating a comfortable relationship with a business owner/customer instantly
  2. Learning about their true needs
  3. Crafting a win-win arrangement between company and customer
  4. Serving them to the very best of your ability in a way that is genuinely beneficial

You will learn how to prioritize prospective partners, start conversations, spot opportunities to create value, and bring in business. This is the ultimate skillset of a manager and business owner.

This is not a pure sales job. More is not better. Better is Better. We are not trying to partner with every business out there--only the best. You must have a radar for good people, honest businesses, and talented craftsmen. You will make partnership decisions on behalf of the company that are similar to investment or hiring decisions.

Through this experience you will learn how important win-win partnerships are and how to build them. You will be immersed in local businesses, and join a small team that is quickly building a big business by providing genuine value.

You will have the opportunity to grow in multiple new directions, and it will be up to you to decide which skills to nurture and which opportunities to pursue.

What you will be responsible for

  1. Establishing new partnerships that our customers are requesting (quickly, cost-effectively, and with impeccable quality).
  2. Ensuring all Service Providers that you work with are thoroughly informed, psychologically invested, and outwardly excited about who we are and what we do.
  3. Thinking about the purpose of your work toward the company’s goals, and suggesting new ways to improve our processes and services.
  4. You improve the reputation of the business and all of its partners with every gesture you choose to make.
  5. The team members that you work with enjoy your presence and respect your contributions to the success of the company.
