Join Skilljar’s SDR team that is building sales pipeline to help power our excellent growth. You’ll learn from a diverse and experienced leadership team as you develop and succeed with the leader in Customer Education software–an exciting and emerging category. This team is highly competitive and collaborative. We all want to win, and it’s even better when we do it together.
Outstanding performers will have the opportunity to grow into other roles within the company, including the Account Executive position, to jump-start a career in B2B SaaS sales. This is a fantastic role for driven, coachable, and high-judgment individuals to get in early at a rapidly accelerating startup that is already serving hundreds of Fortune 1000 and mid-market clients!
We’re looking for people who:
- Want to pursue a career in Sales coupled with a strong will to achieve. Call it what you want: grit, competitive spirit, hustle…the bottom line is this role is for anyone that wants to compete and win. What will motivate you when the going gets tough?
- Have positive and energetic phone skills, excellent listening skills, and strong writing skills.
- Possess excellent organization skills, a keen attention to detail, a love of customers, and creative problem solving skills.
- Enjoy working in a collaboratively competitive environment. Make others around you better while achieving your own goals!
- Have insatiable curiosity and are committed to lifelong learning (growth mindset) and continuous development (i.e. be better today than you were yesterday).
- Are coachable–don’t just do what we say, but rather be self-aware and reflective, and digest feedback critically and adapt to overcome challenges.
Would you like to be responsible for:
- Creating a great first impression for customer prospects by providing them with a world-class experience.
- Researching and identifying future customer companies and contacts to find great candidates to prospect into.
- Engaging with potential customers via phone, email, LinkedIn, and chat to understand their business needs and identify the ways that Skilljar can help.
- Maintaining high engagement with new and existing leads through creative follow-up communications crafted to increase customer curiosity about Skilljar.
- Scheduling qualified meetings and develop pipeline to fuel Skilljar’s revenue.
- Collaborating closely with Account Executives and marketing to achieve mutually aligned sales quotas each month.
- Helping the team continuously improve and optimize our process, training, use of technology, and other applicable aspects of our business.
A bit more about you:
- Past success in an SDR role is strongly preferred, especially if you have previous outbound experience.
- Startup experience is a major plus.
- Bachelor’s degree in a related field or equivalent years of proven experience required.
