We have spent the past 4 years at Estimize building an incredible community and data set of buy side, independent, and amateur analysts. In order to represent the entire market though, Estimize now needs to acquire as contributors all of the sell side and independent brokerage firms who traditionally contribute to the Wall Street estimates data set owned by Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg, Factset, Capital IQ, and Zacks.The SVP of Broker Relations role is pretty simple, your job will be to develop relationships with the DORs, COOs, and Head of Sales at the 250 firms who currently contribute to the Wall Street data set. 80 or so of these firms will contribute via feeds they distribute through BlueMatrix, the others will send PDFs. With relatively little effort we already have 5 of these firms contributing.Along with acquiring these firms as contributors to the platform, you will have the opportunity to sell Estimize data and premium features into these organizations, along with developing deeper marketing relationships with them. The sell side has massive reach into all of our desired buy side clients and a collaborative relationship between Estimize and these firms makes a lot of sense, we already have a few going.You are someone who:;* has experience at or working with sell side research organizations;* has experience with estimates and believes lock, stock, and barrel in the Estimize philosophy;* can sell, straight up, this is a sales position, you need to sell these firms on working with a startupYou can expect:;* competitive salary;* stock options;* unlimited vacation;* to work with an enthusiastic and passionate team
Estimize is the first crowdsourced financial estimates platform. Unlike other financial datasets, which are collected from the same pool of sell-side contributors, Estimize collects data from a much wider base of analysts. By crowdsourcing data from buy-side, sell-side and independent research analysts, alongside industry experts and academics, Estimize data is able to better represent the true expectations of the market. In fact, the Estimize Equity Dataset is found to be more accurate than similar sell-side only datasets over 69% of the time.
