Sales Development Representative, Board.org
Sales & Business Development
Austin, TX, USA
Posted on Saturday, July 10, 2021
Thank you for your interest in this position with Board.org, a wholly-owned subsidiary of FiscalNote. The recruitment for this role is being managed by FiscalNote's Recruiting team (parent company), so you are in the right place! Please continue to review this opportunity and apply at your interest. We are excited to review your background. Thank you!
About the Position
Our Sales Development Representatives hustle. They understand the need for speed at a high growth technology startup, but they also recognize that brute force is not always the best strategy. Highly creative and intelligent, Sales Development Representatives tactfully leverage all manners of communication to open up conversations with potential members of our communities of executives in social media, healthcare, recruitment, corporate social responsibility, enterprise data strategy, and diversity, equity and inclusion.
Our Sales Development Representatives interface with people leading meaningful change at some of the world’s largest companies, and they must conduct themselves with a level of intellectual aptitude far exceeding that of a generic SaaS sale.
About the Board.org Sales Team
You’ll be joining a mission-based, results-focused sales team responsible for selling new memberships in our BtoB executive communities and upholding the qualifications and standards for who is permitted to join. Our prospects are decision-makers typically at Director level and above at very large enterprises. Our model is exclusively outbound, inside sales with a short sales cycle (45-60 days), mostly by phone/email/social media, with minimal travel. The team is all located in our Austin office (temporarily working from home). It involves new client acquisition only (not renewals or lead-gen marketing). We have a strong sales culture of collaborative, ethical, and healthy practices (and reject hostile sales cultures). Marry that culture to sales discipline and systems to achieve next-level results.
Hungry. Curious. Unflappable. Intelligent. You view every phone call you make and every email you send as one more data point to guide you to understanding the quickest path to success. Because you communicate clearly and skillfully through both writing and speech, others always understand the context of your message. Your intellectual curiosity is one of your greatest assets and allows you to effectively interact with people from all walks of life. Able to think quickly on your feet, you handle any situation with extraordinary tact and composure.
