WE’RE HIRING!

Sales Rep

 
 

 

Mission/Purpose:

  • The purpose of this role is to convert warm leads into customers for CharacterStrong in the most effective & efficient manner possible.

  • This will be done via consultative phone sales appointments with prospects that have expressed interest in CharacterStrong. The Inside Sales Rep will be responsible for educating & selling the prospect on the product that’s the best fit for their needs.

  • NOTE: This position is full-time and virtual meaning you can work from anywhere. The first 3-4 weeks would be in person in Washington state with a quarterly expectation to be in person for 2-3 days.

What you’ll be doing…

  • Day to day, you’ll be selling on (mostly) pre-scheduled sales calls.

  • 70-80% of these appointments will be booked for you, but sometimes you’ll be responsible for filling the rest of your calendar with appointments.

  • As part of this opportunity, you’ll also be a part of a VERY fast paced and high growth company. You’re getting in at the ground floor of a growing sales team, and will have input and responsibility as we grow the team.

 

 

This is For You If

  • You have strong values and character.

  • You’re looking to make an impact on schools and education.

  • You’re tenacious and organized.

  • You’re the top rep at your current company (or at least in the top 5%)

  • You’re great with people – and not afraid to challenge them to be their best

  • You have a strong internal drive to help people through sales of a product you believe in, and hate missing out on potential sales opportunities

  • You are an action taker, you’re good at problem solving and figuring things out on your own with minimal direction… you know how to create your own structured work environment.

  • You are process driven – you don’t just look at a task, but innovate and find ways to improve the entire system

  • You’re coachable. You seek out growth opportunities at any change you get – actively reading and learning from books or courses to get better at your role
