Are you inspired to work as a Sales Account Manager for a rapidly growing tech company; a company dedicated to enabling and connecting plant lovers with their passion? Not only is this an awesome opportunity but also a first of its kind for Candide’s marketplace, allowing a talented Sales Account Manager to own and lead new supplier acquisition, supplier onboarding, and supplier growth.

Who are we?

We are Candide; a fiercely passionate bunch of people (and plants) bringing exciting and revenue-boosting tech products to independent businesses and enabling plant enthusiasts to connect with their true love. At Candide, we harness data to create new products, drive success and lead the way within the garden marketplace sector.
We openly put our people first and pride ourselves on our collaborative and inclusive culture. We love learning together, and we actively encourage everyone to share ideas on how we can improve our processes, growth, and products.

Where are we?

We are lucky to have an HQ in the heart of Bristol and offices in London. As we monitor the ongoing pandemic, we will be implementing a hybrid working model of both office working and working from home.
