Working for Basalte

Regional Sales Manager California

Basalte creates design for the intelligent home. User-friendly technology in combination with a high-quality design were the founding principles and remain the core values that guide the company. It all started with an innovative design switch, but Basalte has grown into so much more. Exclusive speakers, subtle motion detectors, matching outlet covers and more to come. With just a light touch of your keypad switch, you can activate the right atmosphere in your home. Your favorite music fills the room, the mood lighting comes on and a pleasant temperature is set. The ultimate home feeling. Everything can be set and adjusted remotely. A total solution for more comfort in the intelligent home. 

Job description

In this role you will use your knowledge and experience to help high-end custom home installers and influencers create design for the intelligent home in the Californian market. 

Your mission is to ensure that Basalte continues to grow within the luxury residential market in your region. Your enthusiastic mindset convinces installers and influencers of the added value that our high-quality design solutions offer. 

The Basalte range is aimed at the top segment of the residential market. Basalte products can therefore be found worldwide in the most exclusive villas, yachts, condominiums and single-family homes. Usually there is a long period of time between the conception of a project and the final placement of the products. Good influence and follow-up are key! 

Your focus is mainly on installers who are active in this high-end segment. These are usually smaller, professional custom home installers. Your first role is to make them enthusiastic about everything Basalte has to offer! You then lead them to increase Basalte solution adoption. You do this by understanding their business, giving demos, inviting them to relevant showrooms and becoming a partner of theirs to co-develop their project pipeline. 

In this role, you will visit interior designers who work with the installers, as well as architects and, to a lesser extent, the end customer or representative of the end customer. In this way you ensure that the Basalte products are increasingly prescribed.
