  • You will hold your team accountable to deliver an enhanced customer experience at all touch-points with brands
  • You’ll leave the automated canned emails and scripted calls in the past and will coach your team on elevating and enhancing outreach methods and methodology
  • You’ll constantly educate yourself on new industry and technology trends as well as use available resources to understand ongoing re-structuring within key prospect accounts
  • You welcome new ideas, but test them thoroughly and live by the question; will this scale?

  • Extensive SFDC knowledge
  • You’re a proven leader who’s led an Inside Sales, Sales Development or Marketing team for 2-3 years reporting to a global management structure and consistently achieving team quota
  • You’ve worked with fast-growing startups in the past and the tools they deem necessary (pulling and analyzing reports in SalesForce, Outreach, crowd-sharing Google technology, etc.)
  • You lead by example and never expect one of your teammates to do something you wouldn’t
  • You’re an inquisitive learner, intellectually curious and a trailblazer with creative ideas never settling for the status quo
