Dear new Sales Development Representative,

Usually, when we're writing these things, we'd spend a good chunk of time talking about what we want FROM you. But it's a little different when it comes to internships, because it's far more a case of what we want FOR you. We'll make sure that you look back on your chapter with Buyapowa not just as the time when you learned what it takes to be an incredible SDR, but the time when you actually became one.

So welcome to Buyapowa, new SDR. We can't wait for you to join us.

THIS IS WHAT MAKES BUYAPOWA BUYAPOWA

Traditional marketing is dead. That's why we're building what comes next - a whole new channel to attract and acquire customers that reflects the way that people discover, fall in love and shop with today's leading brands.

We're thrilled that more and more clients including Engie, Pokawa, Virtuo, La Poste Mobile, Bouygues Telecom and many more are joining Buyapowa on this adventure, each and every day. But, cards on the table, when we started out over 10 years ago, we had no idea we'd become the global leader in what we do. And, while we've got huge plans for the years ahead, we're just as excited by the unknown future as we are by the storied past.

We love new people, new ideas, new skills, new angles, new problems and new solutions. That's why we're not going to say something dumb like: 'The ideal candidate went to this school, worked at that business and has this personality, that skillset and these boxes checked on their resume'. If we knew exactly what we wanted, we wouldn't need you. So come show us what we're missing.

We think these things are pretty obvious, but we're a bit grossed-out that no one else is really saying them:

  1. No one wants to be compelled to commute into an office anymore. That's why, while Buyapowa has offices around the world (and we love getting together face-to-face), we're fully committed to the virtual workspace, and we're delighted that our team gets to work wherever in the world they call home.
  2. No one's worked at Buyapowa until they work at Buyapowa. So, while we value experience, we know that the greatest experience you can have is the experience you'll gain once you start working with us.
  3. No one stops being talented just because they're in their 50s or 60s. We love fresh ideas, but we don't have a weird youth fetish like some other employers.
  4. That said, Mozart was composing classics when he was only five years old. So, if you're just starting out on your journey, that's amazing too.
  5. Apparently, the average person changes careers 5-7 times over the course of their working life. Between you and us, we think that might be BS, but either way: we don't care if this is your first and only career or you're embarking on change number 5, 6 or 7. If you've got the talent, we want you.
  6. We actively celebrate all forms of diversity, and we'll love the way you look, the things you believe in, the life you live and the people you love.

So, that's us. We love building the future and we love the people we're building the future with. If you're the future-building kind, and you've got the smarts to back it up, the job's already yours.
