Deako Lighting | Professional Channel Manager

Professional Channel Manager

Job description

An opportunity for ambitious electricians to take that next major career step! Get out of the field and into management.

Deako is disrupting the traditional way of wiring homes, giving power back to the homeowner to personalize and upgrade their lighting as long as they own the home. With its patented modular light switches, homes are wired with the back half  (Backplate) of the switch fixed in the wall. The front half (or switch module) begins with a regular on and off switch but is interchangeable in seconds, by anyone. This enables the homeowner to live in the home and decide at any point to upgrade. No more trips across town for one or two dimmers, no more smudges on the walls,  keeping the homeowner and the electrician happy.

The Professional Channel Manager will work with Electrical Contractors  (ECs) throughout the United States to help them transition over to Deako for primarily new construction, production homes. This role will involve working with the EC to get them bought in on Deako’s backplate and modular system, and the value it brings to the electrician, the builder and the homeowner. Once the EC is ready to move forward, the Professional Channel Manager will ensure they are set up with correct pricing tiers, access to distributors as well as training on installation and troubleshooting. Finally, the Professional Channel Manager will work with the EC on an ongoing basis to ensure regular support is being provided, new products are introduced and made available, and our mutual business grows.


What we are looking for

  • Superstars only need apply! We want to win and have fun doing it, so we only hire the best and brightest.
  • You’ll have 5 years of electrical experience (ideally a journeyman electrician) and a track record of success and growth in your career. 
  • You love the idea of talking to new partners to better understand their needs and see how Deako can help. 
  • You are familiar with smart home technology and have had exposure to the industry in some fashion.
  • You're a highly motivated, driven, self-starting individual who knows how to hit the ground running.


Why Deako?

Deako, a Bloomberg top 50 Global Startup, is committed to making smart lighting accessible to the rest of us. 

Why do we have to run around our homes to turn off all the lights when we leave? Why do we have to get up out of bed to turn off lights we forgot? Why do we have to come home to a dark house? Why can’t we have our home match our mood, or ask our house to respond to us using our voice?

Until now, whole-home smart lighting has been relegated to multimillion-dollar homes, with complex installation, set-up, and support. It’s been confusing and way too costly for most of us to adopt.

Deako changes all that. We make affordable, powerful, yet simple smart lighting systems that enable you to control any light in your home from any switch, your phone, or your voice. They install like regular light switches and setup is a snap with our iOS and Android Apps. Its patent-pending modular light switch enables homeowners to try out smart lighting in a few areas before committing to a whole-home system and can click in an upgrade in seconds.
