Remote, Paris 75

RecoHero helps e-commerce businesses reduce their acquisition costs, increase customer retention and boost conversion rates, thanks to the digitalisation of word-of-mouth referrals. The product is a SaaS driven by an API to connect with e-commerce stores, through plugins available on different CMS stores. Buyers can recommend purchased products to friends through a referral link. If a friend buys the product through the link, they both receive a cash-back on the product’s price. Everytime a new customer buys the same product through the same link, the cash-back percentage increases. All involved customers receive the same cash-back amount.

Description de l'offre

1) Are you an experienced full-stack developer looking for a co-founder position ? 2) Do you have an entrepreneurial mindset, hoping to build a global startup ? 3) Are you highly-driven, resilient and ambitious ? THE STORY BEHIND RECOHERO : My name is Ambroise, I’m an entrepreneur who worked with multi-millions startups in Europe, after a scientific baccalaureat and 7 year studies (electronic engineering + business). My profile and background are oriented towards sales and marketing (B2C & B2B) with strong management skills. In 2016, I founded RecoHero, with the vision to digitalise word-of-mouth recferrals for e-commerce businesses worldwide, in order to make the online purchase process more reliable, interactive and rewarding (cash-back). THE PROBLEM FOR E-COMMERCE SITES: 1) High acquisition costs and speculative ROI : Marketing costs escalate as e-commerce sites go through expensive and speculative acquisition channels to drive traffic to their stores in today’s competitive market. 2) Low customer retention : The customer’s lifetime value is poor for small to middle e-commerce stores. 3) Low affiliate referrals conversion rates: Affiliation is one of the channels with the lowest conversation rate in e-commerce, as there is a lack of value for the recommended buyer. The system has been operating in the same way since 2005 and needs to be renewed. THE SOLUTION: RecoHero digitalises word-of-mouth recommendations for e-commerce, where buyers can recommend purchases to friends. All customers receive a cash-back percentage, which increases for every new buyer. 1) ROI positive acquisition: E-commerce sites enjoy a no-risk communication channel and equally re-distribute the acquisition cost to its customers, through cash-back calculated on their floor price. 2) Increased satisfaction/retention rates: The cash-back is an incentive for customers to purchase again on the site rather than on competing sites. 3) Higher conversion rates: 90% of word-of-mouth referrals lead to a purchase. In a group of friends with common interests, satisfied customers are the best sellers ! HOW IT WORKS: Right after making an order on the e-commerce site, the customer can recommend the purchased product to friends through a referral link. If a friend buys the product through the link, they both receive a cash-back on the product’s price. Everytime a new customer buys the same product through the same link, the cash-back percentage increases. All involved customers receive the same cash-back amount. --- WHAT HAS BEEN DONE SO FAR: We raised €130K+ in 2017 and launched our MVP (e-commerce site with optimised referral system). The success on the B2B side was strong and grasped investors’ interests, we therefore decided to restructure the team and pivot towards a B2B model. WHAT'S NEXT: We’re looking for an experienced full-stack developer to join us as CTO and build the SaaS product from A to Z. You will have total freedom over the choice of tech stack, architecture as well as tech team. This is a long-term co-founder position. You’ll work closely with the CEO/CMO and lead the team of developers. Collaboration will be remote using collaboration tools.
