A little About Kit

Knit is the AI-native platform automating the consumer research process, enabling enterprise brands to run rigorous research in days not weeks. Through Knit, brands like NASCAR, JBL, and Mars automate their consumer research process to get a quicker and more holistic understanding of their audiences.

Overview & Responsibilities

The purpose of the Account Executive at Knit is to bring on net new partnerships.

Post-contracting, this role collaborates with Account Management, Customer Success, and Product – the teams executing against the partnerships. Through collaboration, this role will share where the customer is hoping to get the most value out of Knit’s tools, where they have potential to churn, and overall setting the team up to build a strong partnership with the new client.

  • Once a new client is brought up, collaborate with Account Management and Customer Success to ensure a smooth transition of the relationship from net new business to existing partnerships takes place.
