About You

You are a proven, energetic sales professional. A leader on your team. You play an integral role in your company’s client acquisition and brand image. You have a keen ability to connect with small to mid-size company decision makers that will benefit immensely from your service. Your capacity to listen to their goals, prescribe a fitting solution and turn them from prospects to partners has resulted in numerous company accolades and managerial kudos. But for you, it’s not just about the great pay and sales awards, it’s more about delivering a product to your clients that will change the way their business runs and allows them to achieve their own goals.

You’re recognized for the ability to prospect and connect with decision makers efficiently and with minimal effort as possible.You understand sales is a numbers game, but prefer to spend your time researching and establishing relationships with companies that truly benefit from your product or service. Hard work got you to where you are today, but smart work was the differentiating factor between you and the other hires in your corporate training class that are long gone.

You have a track record of consistently exceeding quota and being offered promotions within your company.This alone doesn’t satisfy you. Your ambitions take you far beyond what corporate red tape will allow. You are confident you have the talent to be a superstar but need to find a team that will give you a shot to be one. You don’t aspire to be a big fish in a small pond, you want to be the whale that requires pond renovations and building permit approvals.

You want to affect your company’s bottom line and have direct communication with the tech team that is reinventing the way your clients sell their products online.You want to be on the frontline of something exciting, something new and innovative that will allow you to propel your career far past the boundaries corporate bureaucracy will allow. You reached the position you’re at now by being an honest, innovative and a hard working follower, now you’re ready to be a leader and grow a company.
