Our Mission at Scythe

Humanity has lost touch with nature - we’ve traded dirt and trees for asphalt, and we rely on loud, polluting, gas-powered machines to care for our limited natural spaces.
Scythe is forging a new future by building intelligent, all-electric machines that unlock a new superpower: the ability to care for the outdoors pollution-free at enormous scale. From today’s first steps in landscape maintenance to full-fledged re-terraforming in the future, Scythe is pioneering autonomous machinery that supports the ingenuity of humans, multiplying our power to nurture our planet.
At Scythe, you’ll work with a team of world-class experts in everything from computer vision to mechanical engineering, pushing the limits of possibility and growing by overcoming hurdles along the way.
The world needs what we’re building—come join us in making it a reality.

Account Manager at Scythe Robotics

Scythe is looking for a highly motivated and self-driven Account Manager to join our growing Marketing + Sales team. With phenomenal demand for our flagship product, Scythe M.52, this is an excellent opportunity to develop innovative customer engagement strategies that excite existing M.52 reservation holders and attract new ones, all while shaping the future of the landscape industry.

As an Account Manager, Reservations you will be responsible for engaging and expanding the customers on our reservations list. The activities vary widely but some of them include running outreach campaigns, conducting robot demos and road shows, attending conferences and events, educating prospects on Scythe products, and identifying and closing reservations leads in prioritized markets.

In this position you will work closely with teammates from across Scythe to further drive industry interest in M.52 by promoting our game-changing products while delivering customer insights back to the broader organization. The lessons you learn from customers will be instrumental in development efforts to ensure that we serve and delight our operating partners — commercial landscapers.

We expect you to be broadly experienced with the ability to see around corners and thrive in fast-paced, self-managed, and customer-obsessed environments, ultimately acting as a collaborative, low-ego teammate who helps Scythe realize its big mission.

What you’ll do at Scythe

  • Develop and execute innovative engagement strategies and outreach programs that include in-person, digital, and out-of-the-box elements to:

  • Establish, develop, and maintain strong business relationships with current and prospective reservations holders through site visits, road shows, networking opportunities, and industry events
  • Develop and deliver presentations, outdoor product demonstrations, and sales pitches that showcase and reinforce the value of Scythe's products and how they solve customer problems
  • Collaborate closely with Marketing to craft compelling programs, outbound efforts, and targeted sales campaigns
  • Collaborate closely with Implementation + Customer Success to generate and qualify leads based on deployment needs
  • Travel up to 40% of the time, including some road trips where you will be driving robots around — but don't worry, we make the travel experience great at Scythe

  • Knowledge of industry trends, sales and marketing strategies, and consumer psychology

  • Using a CRM to track engagements (we use HubSpot)
