About Honeycomb Credit

Honeycomb is a venture-backed, loan crowdfunding website that unlocks capital for small businesses from an unconventional and innovative source—their fans, friends, and community. By crowdfunding a small business loan from their customers, entrepreneurs create deeper relationships with their community and investors earn a return while supporting local businesses they love. It’s a true win-win!

Honeycomb has driven over $25 million to more than 300 businesses since its inception.  We are growing our sales organization by hiring a new Account Executive at our headquarters in Pittsburgh, PA! The Account Executive will be responsible for educating business owners on the benefits of running a Honeycomb offering, helping them complete an application, and working cross-functionally to help businesses prepare to raise money on Honeycomb.

As the Account Executive you will:

  • Work day-in and day-out with inspiring Main Street business entrepreneurs!
  • Become an expert on our community capital product, so you can educate business owners on the benefits of raising capital from their customers and community
  • Call, text, email and meet virtually with business owners to support them as they gather the necessary documents to complete an application, and keep them updated as their application is reviewed internally
  • Nurture and convert small business owners from multiple sources including inbounds, referrals, and leads sourced through cold outreach initiatives (supported by the sales development team)
  • Sell leads on the value of a Honeycomb campaign and the method to maximize campaign success
  • Build and maintain a book of business by nurturing relationships until their timing or need aligns with Honeycomb offering potential
  • Build relationships with referral partners to bring more qualified businesses to the platform
  • Close deals and support our customer success team with onboarding small businesses to launch their Honeycomb campaigns

We are looking for candidates who are:

  • Highly self-motivated and goal-oriented
  • Persistent without being rude or overbearing
  • Detail-oriented with a track record of keeping meticulous records in their CRM
  • Unafraid to work the phones to get a hold of business owners
  • Buoyant and able to laugh off a tough call with a prospect or customer
  • Team players who want to see their colleagues succeed alongside themselves
  • Capable of setting meaningful deadlines and holding business owners accountable to our process
  • Passionate about serving the small businesses that make our communities shine!

The Account Executive should have 4-6 years of experience in sales or business development working directly with small business clients, and ideally, closing deals. Compensation will include a base salary and commission, commensurate with experience as well as a competitive stock option package in a scaling startup. 

Why Honeycomb?

  • Full-time, salaried position with a competitive commission and ramp-up pay
  • Comprehensive health insurance with 90% employer contribution
  • 401k
  • Unlimited PTO
  • Competitive equity package in a high-growth startup
  • Fun, unique, and exciting co-workers
  • The opportunity to contribute on Day 1 and grow your career in a mission-driven organization
