RIWI is growing our network of sales agents worldwide. We are looking for experienced sales agents aligned with our mission and who can connect us with potential customers and partners. This opportunity is to work part-time as a sales agent with a specific focus to connect our teams with prospective customers within your network that you feel RIWI can help. This role is incentivized by a significant revenue share on sales made from your connection. This is a non-salaried role. If you have some time and love what we do, this might be for you.

Your responsibility as a sales agent is to become knowledgeable in how RIWI can help address critical global issues, identify quality prospects and generate interest for an introduction, where a RIWI salesperson will then lead the sales process.
