Who We Are

Vividly is the leading modern trade promotion management (TPM) solution built by and for the consumer packaged goods industry. From campaign creation to deductions management and promotion measurement, we help brands manage every element of trade spend. With our easy-to-use platform and industry-leading experience, we pride ourselves on our ability to bring businesses to the next level.

Not familiar with trade promotion spend? It’s a multi-trillion dollar problem ripe for disruption by an innovative SaaS startup. The average consumer packaged goods (CPG) brand spends 20% of its topline revenue to promote their products… but the entire industry operates on emails, PDFs, and Excel spreadsheets!

At Vividly, we’re solving this massive problem using a modern tech stack and exciting tactics including AI, Machine Learning, and Fintech, adding value to everyone in the chain. Some of our customers include brands you may use and love—Liquid Death, Amy’s, and Laird Superfoods, to name a few.

Who You Are

We are seeking a hardworking, bright, and energetic professional experienced in CPG trade management to join the Customer Success team! If you're a self-starter with an entrepreneurial spirit and technical aptitude, you'll fit right in. This is an exciting opportunity to participate in and help shape our customer's journey to the Cloud. We need someone who has lived on the front lines of Small to Midsize Business (SMB) Trade, helping these companies better understand, optimize, and analyze trade dollars.
