We’re looking for a Partner Growth Manager to join our team in Auckland. In this role, you'll develop our current distribution partnerships to generate new business, retain our valued partners, and boost revenue with our largest and most complex software partners in the region. You'll need a deep understanding of your partner’s ambitions, products, and technology, as well as the broader hospitality and retail industry. You will also be responsible for overseeing partner performance, reporting, and managing key stakeholders. If you're ready to take on a dynamic role and drive growth, we want to hear from you!

What you’ll be doing:

  • Execute the partnership growth strategy for your region.
  • Manage the handover and onboarding of a portfolio of key software partners into our Partner Programme once they've signed up.
  • Develop and maintain relationships with partners to boost product activations and increase successful referrals for the Lightspeed POS solution.
  • Assess the current partner portfolio’s capabilities, opportunities, and risks for accurate forecasting and growth planning.
  • Demonstrate our product suite and provide basic troubleshooting support for partner or merchant inquiries.
  • Build strong relationships with internal stakeholders and be the advocate for your portfolio of partners within Lightspeed.

What you need to bring:

We're looking for a candidate who has experience with the following:

  • Prior experience in partnerships, channel or account management, and/or customer success (software sales experience is a bonus, but not needed!).
  • Previous experience building B2B relationships.
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills, both written and verbal.
  • Ability to train, motivate, and build strong relationships with potential partners.
  • Capability to develop comprehensive strategies for reseller growth.

Do you need additional support during an interview?

At Lightspeed, we acknowledge that we face the unique challenge of engaging with and hiring diverse talent from marginalised communities with different personal or cultural norms. For many candidates from these underrepresented groups, a job interview can be an extra stressful or challenging experience. Taking this nuanced perspective into consideration, Lightspeed is pleased to offer Supported Interviews! This means you’re welcome to bring whānau or a support person along with you during any Lightspeed interview (excluding initial recruiter phone call). This ensures you have the best opportunity to display your full range of strengths.

To all recruitment agencies: Lightspeed does not accept unsolicited agency resumes. If we have not directly engaged your company in writing to supply candidates for a specific vacancy, Lightspeed will not be responsible for any fees related to unsolicited resumes.

Lightspeed is a proud equal opportunity employer and we are committed to creating an inclusive and barrier-free workplace. Lightspeed welcomes and encourages applications from people with disabilities. Accommodations are available on request for candidates taking part in all aspects of the selection process.
