Account Executive
📍 Location: NYC
🏙️ Office requirement: Hybrid 1-2x a week in-office
📝 Employment type: Permanent Full-Time
💰 Salary: $85,000-$95,000 base salary plus commission

At GWI we’re always looking for extraordinary people who thrive on making an extraordinary impact. Right now we’re looking for a Account Executive to play a key role in our Revenue Team in NYC. If that’s you, and making a difference gets you out of bed in the morning, keep reading. It could be the start of something, well, extraordinary.

Sounds great, what will I be doing? 🤔

As our Account Executive you’ll be selling into corporate clients with the goal of making GWI the go-to research solution for all consumer insight needs. As an individual contributor, you’ll be reporting to the VP of Corporate New Business. Your primary focus will be to identify and sell our suite of products and services to organizations who are on a mission to understand their ever changing audiences and optimize their GTM strategy.

It’s also fun; shaking things up is what working for a growing company is all about. So you’ll need to be flexible, comfortable with continuous change, and working in a high-tempo environment as we grow.

What do I need to bring with me? 🧳

You’ll need to be able to demonstrate the core skills this role requires. You don't have to tick all the boxes right away; the important thing is that you’re willing to learn. Here’s what the team will be looking for:

👉 Proven track-record of consistently meeting or over-achieving sales quotas in a new business role
👉 Ability to reach and develop relationships with key stakeholders and/or C-level executives
👉 Ability to lead the entire sales cycle with your clients from initial opportunity creation to close
👉 Excellent communication skills with the ability to communicate complex ideas clearly and succinctly
👉 A collaborator - someone that can collaborate across departments to get deals dome (for example SDR, Marketing, Solutions Partners)

Equally important is attitude. We want people who think big (to make an impact), ask why (to find a better way), and show respect (to everyone, at every level, all the time). Those are our values, exemplified by our leadership team, and they’re a big part of what we’re looking for in you.

Interview steps 👟

👉 Preliminary video call with the Talent Team
👉 First video interview with the hiring managers
👉 Second (and final*) video interview with the hiring panel, often including a presentation, followed by a values conversation with members of the wider GWI community.

*Don’t be alarmed if there are other stages in the process, it’s all part of the plan for some of our roles.


What exactly is GWI? 👀

What’s in it for me? 🎁

You’ll do the sort of work that got you excited about your career in the first place - not as a cog in a machine, but as an individual whose contribution matters. So gigantic job satisfaction comes as standard, but it’s only part of the package. You’ll also get:


🌴 Tons of days off: 23 days’ annual leave | End-of-year office closures | Unlimited sick days
💸 More than a great salary: Employee share scheme | Health insurance at only $1 a month, plus dental and vision insurance | Automatic 401k enrollment
🧘 Great work-life balance: Flexi-time | Early Friday finishes | Work-from-anywhere options
🏡 Family-focused flexibility: Carer days | Enhanced parental leave
💪 A commitment to YOU: Accredited learning programs | A commitment to mental and physical health | Reward and recognition programs | Career development opportunities
🌎 A commitment to the community: DE&I committee | Volunteer options | 100% donation matching

Put all that together and GWI is the friendliest, most fulfilling place any of us has ever worked.


Diversity, Equity & Inclusion 🤝

We take DE&I seriously. Not only is it obviously the right thing to do, it’s also the bedrock of our value of show respect and at the heart of our company culture.

We’re a global data business, so it’s essential our data reflects the global reality. Putting diversity into practice like this literally makes our business stronger. That’s why we strive to make our offices - and our teams - as diverse as our data. Want to know more? Take a look at our Life page on LinkedIn to learn more about our DE&I initiatives.

The point is, GWI is a place where you can genuinely feel at home, express yourself, and make your mark - whoever you are.
