Who are you?
You understand the value of employee engagement. You know that employee engagement is critical to an organization improving workplace culture. Most likely, you have been exposed to (or have experienced) organizational topics like employee engagement, performance management, feedback, employee appreciation, and turnover – the good, the bad, the ugly. We’re here to make work better.
You’re a relationship builder and teacher. You are good with people, even the most difficult. You know that relationships are built on credibility and trust, and both of those take time. Relationships for you are not about saying yes or just being nice, but about finding common ground.
You’re tactical, yet strategic. You’ve been told before you’re a doer. You enjoy creating and completing to-do lists and understanding next steps. But, you also know the importance of big picture thinking.
You’re analytical. You dig spreadsheets – at least some of the time. You like to look for trends and uncover the hidden insights that may help shape the story to tell in the marketplace.
You thrive on making a difference. Presenting ideas, insights or ideas in-the-moment to executives isn’t intimidating because you know the difference it will make if we can continue the conversation.
You can influence those around you. You are effective at sharing insights and coaching executives on why they should set up a product demo with us. Delivering effective messages are easy for you because you’ve prepared.
You’re comfortable with challenges. You are not frustrated by the ups and downs of sales. You know that sometimes the best laid plans go astray. You take that as a challenge to get back on track.
Most likely, you’ve had some of the following experiences:
Extensive experience with sales automation and improving sales productivity
Demonstrated ability to define, refine and implement sales processes, procedures and policies
Proven proficiency in identifying, diagnosing, and resolving problems of all levels of complexity
Ability to analyze complex data and translate into actionable messages and presentations
Strong technical, research, problem-solving, negotiation and collaboration skills
Working for a software startup
Working with HubSpot Sales (or some other CRM)
MBA or Bachelor’s degree in Business, Psychology, Human Resource Management, Marketing, Sales or something similar
