Careers at Klevio

We're Klevio. We're building an innovative access solution that allows people to unlock their doors with a phone. It's a smart intercom for home owners that allows them to share digital keys or let guests in remotely. We also have a strong B2B offering in various verticals including offices and coworking spaces, short-let businesses, and managed buildings.

After two years of careful design, testing and iteration, we have successfully produced a marketing-leading product and have now launched sales in London.

We are building this brand new technology from scratch, leading the commercial and operational business from our Shoreditch office and building hardware/software out of our counterpart office in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

We have a multinational team with vast experience in building and operating high growth businesses. Our funding comes from prominent UK angels who have funded the previous startups of our co-founders. We're an experienced team where our co-founders have launched eight global startups between them already.

We encourage individuality while being a part of the team and celebrating individual successes, plus we have skills to prove it. Our management team members are also: a certified whiskey taster; a trained pastry chef; a marathon runner and a master beer brewer.

We prefer substance over form, questions over clichés, and doing it right over doing it cheaply!

We are always on the lookout for talented people who can help Klevio grow so if you don’t see a role here that seems right for you, please get in touch and let us know what you can bring to the table.

Head of Sales

(London, full time)

Klevio is changing the way we think about access by creating a product that allows you to unlock your doors - from anywhere - and share digital keys using your phone.

While ‘Klevio One’ is currently being sold directly to consumers across London through our e-commerce platform, we now need to explore the enormous potential of Klevio for business – and this is where you step in! We need a capable, driven and technically savvy salesperson to discover how we can generate revenue through B2B channels and spearhead our next phase of growth.

Role & Responsibilities

  • You will be responsible for all revenue generated across all B2B channels.
  • You will own the sales funnel; from lead generation and qualification, selling, structuring contracts and pricing, through to working with the operations team so that we can install each Klevio successfully .
  • You will lead the exploration of different industries to develop the best sales models for each, and discover where the future value lies for Klevio. We are currently running trials across several industry verticals including short-letting agents, residential managing agents, offices and co-working spaces.
  • As the business expands, you will take managerial responsibility for the growth and performance of the sales function.
  • You will prepare proposals and collateral for sales, with the support of our marketing team.

You will develop processes for our B2B sales pipeline, from sourcing leads to closing sales and hand-offs with our operations and installations teams.

About you

You have experience in startups and you like tech, but you are a salesperson at heart. You want to close the deal! You should be driven to set and hit ambitious revenue targets. You're a self-starter with the ability to manage your time and workload and a drive to succeed in a startup environment.

You should have some sales/relationship building experience either in real estate, building management, or hardware/software sales. You should be comfortable talking to building managers and senior managers of real estate related businesses.

For a great startup to succeed all the bits need to fall in place, so you need to be a team player, comfortable selling your ideas based on conviction, not position. You always ask why and never take anything for granted. We expect you to be evidence-driven, with an affinity for trying new things.

Your role

Your work will be mainly focused on sales in London but will later expand to the rest of the UK.

You'll join the team in London; our offices are in Shoreditch where we have our commercial, operational and product teams.

Your performance will be measured by:

  • The amount of B2B sales you generate
  • Your ability to work within the wider team

You'll report to the CEO.

Benefits

At Klevio we offer:

  • A competitive compensation package (salary, options and a performance-based bonus).
  • A beautiful office space at SecondHome.
  • Regular international travel to our office in Ljubljana to work with our Slovenian tech team.
  • A stakeholder pension scheme.
  • A chance to be part of the team that brings an exciting new product to market and changes the way people think about accessing property.

  • Manage event planning and our event participation.

About you

Since we're a startup, we expect you to be a strategic thinker who still enjoys doing some of the groundwork yourself.

You have experience in startups and you like tech, but the creative side is where you excel. You don't mind playing with spreadsheets, but you also enjoy talking to and leading creative types.

For a great startup to succeed all the bits need to fall in place, so you need to be a team player, comfortable selling your ideas based on conviction, not position. You always ask why and never take anything for granted. We expect you to be evidence-driven, with an affinity for trying new things.

Your role

Your work will be mainly focused in the UK during the first year, but will expand to the EU and US in the future.

You'll join the team in London; our offices are in Shoreditch where we have our commercial, operational and product teams.

IoT Installer / Electronic Engineer / Field Operative

(London)

We are looking for a practical problem-solver to install our product for customers across London. While this role is centred around practical work, this is no ordinary handyman job (two of our installers have Physics degrees from world leading universities!). We are constantly prototyping, experimenting and trying to expand our compatibility, so you will have to write the rulebook as you go. You’ll be able among the first handful of Klevio installers helping us design an installation process that scales to hundreds of installers internationally.

We are looking for someone confident, practical and independent who can be the face of Klevio in the real world. Beyond the bread-and-butter installations, you will frequently be faced with new types of locks and intercom systems which we haven’t encountered before. We need someone with the skills and drive to dive in and understand how things work to get the job done. The things you learn in practical application will help broaden our knowledge base and inform our product design on a daily basis.

There is also the opportunity for travel to Ljubljana, Slovenia to report what you see in the field to our hardware and software teams.

This job offers a rare mix of practical and intellectual work, so we’re looking for someone who is equally excited by playing with power tools and exposure to life in a London technology start-up. There is no precise mould for the person we need - you could be a graduate, smart handyman, hobbyist, technologist or keen DIYer looking to put practical skills to work. If you think you have what it takes or would like to learn more, please drop us an email.

Role & Responsibilities

  • Installing Klevio around London, which involves mounting devices, changing locks, installing and cabling electric strikes, replacing or integrating intercom handsets with Klevio
  • Relentlessly problem solving – what has gone wrong with this hardware or software? How can we integrate Klevio with this new access system?
  • Working with our operations team to build the next version of our product by feeding back problems and ideas from the field to our office
  • Contributing to building a slick operation in London

Requirements

  • A proven self-starter with a drive to succeed in an entrepreneurial environment
  • A keen interest in electronics, with a solid understanding of the basics and an ability to diagnose problems on the spot. Experience with intercoms and access systems is a bonus, but not essential
  • Confidence with general decorative work - e.g. change a lock, drill and fill holes, route cables
  • Good people skills - you will often provide the first face-to-face interaction between Klevio and our customers, so we're looking for someone who can represent us well
  • Computer savvy - we are building a technology product and you will have to interact with many of our operational systems
  • Fit - this is a physical role which will require carrying tools up and down staircases, so a degree of physical fitness is required
  • A strong technical degree (science/engineering) or equivalent experience will be beneficial

How to apply
