  • Passion for sales, prospecting, and a high-volume environment
  • Natural leadership abilities - approachable and optimistic, with strong interpersonal skills
  • Creative problem solving skills, grit, and intellectual curiosity that lead you to learn more about your craft and question the status quo

  • Deep experience with CRM (SFDC) and other technologies that drive scale
  • Highly organized and data-oriented, with deep understanding of key metrics
