MORE ABOUT US
We’re currently a team of 10 people -- you will be #11.
We are profitable and self-funded (no VCs or investors). We did this because we want to do what’s best for our team and customers (not investors).
We have sane working hours; we don’t work weekends, take ample time off, and work ~8 hours a day.
You genuinely enjoy helping, talking to, and being around people. You realize that sales is about building long-lasting relationships that can only come with authenticity.
You focus on quality over quantity. You believe that it is better to spend the whole day writing ten high quality cold emails versus one hundred cookie cutter emails.
You’re calm and collected. You don’t let your quotas stress you out but rather serve as a compass for self-development and achieving success in the role.
You are extremely creative. You realize that your prospects are already getting bombarded with cold emails and phone calls and you look for ways to stand out from the crowd.
You sell with heart. You realize that the foundation of sales is built upon you genuinely believing in your product and wanting customers to benefit from it.
You don’t make excuses. You realize that there will always be objections and you get a thrill from dealing with them.
You are always learning. You believe that the only way to grow is to independent and always be learning.
OUR SALES PROCESS RIGHT NOW
Every customer we have today was sourced using our own product (Prospect) or via word-of-mouth.
Any new sales are done by our CEO right now. We have a Customer Success Manager as well who handles all existing accounts, renewals, and upgrades.

At a high level, a typical day consists of you:
Using Prospect to find new leads

WHERE THIS ROLE WILL TAKE YOU
This is a very unique role as you will get the benefits of working at a startup and selling a product that’s already loved by thousands of sales professionals around the world.
