We are launching a travel app aimed at the 1 million monthly tourists visiting Chiang Mai every month. Among other things the app will feature the very best things to do/see/experience in the city, and we will be looking to sign up 30+ local businesses to advertise inside the app. To help us with this we’re looking to hire a bilingual salesperson to help carry out sales presentations to local Thai businesses.
The ideal candidate will be a Thai native speaker but will also have an excellent command of English. The concept we’re trying to communicate is relatively new, so the role will require you to be very adept at translating unique ideas from English into Thai, in a persuasive, energetic and creative way.
We will also consider English speakers who are fluent in Thai.

HOURS 15hrs per week for the next 4 weeks (ongoing management of 10hrs per month thereafter). The job is very flexible – you can choose when to work (evenings and weekends included), but you will have to be able to connect with decision makers in local businesses. As long as you can do that, you are free to work whatever hours you wish.
PAY 125 Baht per hour, plus commission of $100 for every sale secured – earnings are uncapped.
