In-country Ambassador

Job description

About Tab

Tab powers travel & tourism businesses in 40 countries across Latin America, Africa and Asia. Our software and payment platform helps tourism businesses to save on payment costs and manage and take bookings more flexibly – while spending less time on admin and more time with their customers.

We work with hotels (from budget to boutique) and activity operations like dive schools, surf lodges and yoga retreats. Our initial focus is emerging destinations, in countries where payment and booking systems are a significant challenge.

Our platform is trusted by hundreds of tourism businesses around the world, and we've helped hundreds of thousands of travellers to pay in over 100 currencies.

We're working on ambitious plans to revolutionise the experience of independent travel – by helping travellers make the most of their precious time abroad, and giving local tourism operators the vital tools they need to run their business.

We're primarily based in London, and we're backed by Y Combinator (the investors behind Airbnb, Dropbox and Stripe).

Our team has deep expertise across travel, finance and technology – with previous experience at Cambridge University, Harvard and BCG.

About the Role

Do you work in tourism in Latin America, Africa or Asia? Do you know all the tourist businesses in your local area? We're looking for in-country ambassadors to help us spread the word and get more businesses using Tab.

As a Tab Ambassador, you'll be able to use your current network to sign up people you already know to Tab. You might need to help them get set up, and you'll report back to us on interesting cases.

You'll get the most out of the Ambassador programme if you're also confident finding and approaching people and businesses that you don't know. You can use your imagination to get as many people as possible involved - from coffee shop drop in sessions to representing us at local festivals, you know your industry best and we're happy to let you take the lead.

You'll need to have a great understanding of your local tourism industry and some good ideas of how to get more people using Tab, as well as being great at talking to strangers and helping people when they have questions.

We'll pay you based on the transaction volume of the businesses you sign up. This is a part time role with no set hours, so you can easily be a Tab Ambassador alongside your day to day job.

We've designed our application questions to make sure you'd enjoy being an Ambassador. If you can't answer the questions, this might not be the role for you - but don't worry, we're likely to run other schemes in the future.

We'll train you to use Tab, so don't worry if you're not already familiar with the platform. However, if you've already used Tab - as a merchant or a traveller - then let us know!

If you think you have the network we're looking for then we'd love to hear from you.
