We are looking for a driven and enthusiastic salesperson who is ready to spur our growth in China. Up for the challenge? Read on.

 

Following our great success in Europe, we are now looking to build a Sales team in the Greater China region. With our small but mighty team already on the ground in Hong Kong, we are looking for you to help them develop Beijing and Shanghai.

As a Destination Manager you will have complete ownership of your destinations and their performance from the very beginning.  

  • You will use metrics such as revenue growth, product inventory and quality, and customer satisfaction to evaluate performance.
  • You will manage the entire sales funnel from start to finish: generating leads, acquiring and onboarding partners, negotiating with key attractions and tours in the region, getting the best conditions for these products in mobile bookings, commission, availability, price, and last-minute bookings among other things, closing the deal, and communicating post-deal.
  • You will be the point person for knowledge about your market landscape by staying on top of the latest tourism trends and competition.  
  • You will have a constant presence in the field, stepping into the shoes of our customers and discovering their pain points, implementing solutions, and working closely with our suppliers to test new ideas that will wow our customers.   
  • You should establish a good contact with tourism boards and other important players in the travel industry and constantly be present at trade fairs etc.
  • You will step into our customer’s shoes and experience the adventure for yourself! One day you could be standing at the Great Wall in Beijing or on the Observation Deck of Shanghai Tower.

  • Sales passionate: You have a strong passion for sales and a minimum of 1-2 years experience (within the following industries is a big plus: travel/e-commerce or tourism/online industry), and can demonstrate you are a natural salesperson through your relationship-building and negotiation skills.  In addition to a passion for sales, you also have a passion for the travel and tourism industry and want to help us change the tourism landscape in Beijing and Shanghai.
  • Tenacity: You see challenges as opportunities and have an inner drive to succeed.  You enjoy overcoming objections and closing deals with challenging clients. You are dedicated to following-through and have a proven track record of meeting and exceeding sales targets.  
  • Data-driven: You use data to inform your decisions and are always looking for the numbers to back up your claims.
  • Innovation: You seek to work smarter.  You are creative and think outside the box when faced with a challenge. You develop and push yourself, taking calculated risks to learn quickly and without fear of failing.
  • Confidence: You can turn a no into a yes with your solution-oriented nature and your knack for persuasion. You have the natural ability to establish and build great business relationships with clients.
  • Positive: You have a can-do attitude which spreads positivity to those around you. You are energetic and motivated to do your best in every project you take on.  
  • Culture and Relationship: You can embrace and be adaptable to different cultures internally in GetYourGuide and externally with suppliers in your responsible markets. Be exceptional in creating strong and sustainable relationships.

U.S. Equal Opportunity Employment Information (Completion is voluntary)

Individuals seeking employment at this company are considered without regards to race, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, marital status, ancestry, physical or mental disability, veteran status, gender identity, or sexual orientation. You are being given the opportunity to provide the following information in order to help us comply with federal and state Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action record keeping, reporting, and other legal requirements.

Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
