What if everyone got on the same page? This is something we ask ourselves everyday at Bananatag.

We believe great communication is at the heart of every business and we’re here to help companies make meaningful internal communication easy. Because when employees are informed and engaged, they’re happier and they do better work.

Who we are

Bananatag is an employee communication platform that allows users to save time by managing their email, Slack and MS Teams messages from a single tool. Our industry-leading email designer helps teams to collaborate in real-time on branded, engaging content, then explore analytics to understand the impact their messages are having.

The Job

Are you our next Account Executive? We’re looking for someone to have roughly 5 years of industry experience to join our amazing new revenue sales team. This is a unique opportunity to join a really sweet tech company - you can scope us out on Instagram, Glassdoor, and Indeed. We aren’t perfect, but we’re proud of who we are!

It’s an exciting time at Bananatag as we merge with german based SaaS company Staffbase to become the one-stop-shop for internal communications software. We’re still in the early days as we bring our two teams together but one thing we know for sure is that there will be tons of opportunity and we’re looking for people to join us on this fast-paced, high growth ride.

As a part of our Account Executive team, you’ll be a key player in our continued growth. Responsible for bringing on new customer logos and solving enterprise communications challenges on a daily basis, you’ll be working with some of the biggest brands in the world to solve their communications pain points. You’re not new to the SaaS sales world so working with large enterprise sized customers and navigating their complicated approval processes will be no match for you.

Bananatag has a positive, diverse, and evolving culture—we look for people who are curious, inventive, and work to be a little better every single day. In our work together we aim to be smart, humble, hardworking and, above all, impactful. If this sounds like a good fit for you, skim the rest and apply now.

Our belief on Diversity and Inclusion: Diversity is Appealing

Did you know there are over 1000 different kinds of bananas out there? Each one brings something unique to the table, just like our people. We love that we’re all different; however, we have to admit that not all have been treated equally in the past. Bananatag promises that however you identify you will always have equal access and opportunity to succeed.

Our belief on Equity: Pay Parity

We believe in gender pay parity. We’ve taken a public pledge and worked to eradicate gender pay gaps (and gaps in other areas of diversity). We’re committed to bi-annual reviews and making corrections if we fall off track. Our aim is always a $1 to $1 ratio among all Bananas.
