Sales Development Representative

| Santa Monica

The Promenade sales team is scaling rapidly! We are looking for competitive, coachable, and incredibly tenacious individuals who are not only seeking a career in sales, but who can bring unique value to our growing team.

Every SDR hired at Promenade is truly an Account Executive in training. We only promote from within, so every team member that joins starts preparing for the next step from day one.

You will learn how to prospect, cold call, and establish the value of our platform. You’ll start working cold leads both from campaigns generated by our marketing department and from generating leads yourself. As you demonstrate mastery of these basic sales skills, you'll have the opportunity to manage your own book of business as an Account Executive while still continuing to develop new skills and learn along the way.

Top performing SDRs are promoted to Jr. AE roles and closing accounts within their first 6 months, eligible for a full-blown Account Executive role by the end of their first year!

While we are currently in a remote work environment, the SDRs we bring on now will be expected to report to our Santa Monica office once we resume in person.

More specifically, you will be:

    • Participating in our training program to get you up to speed on the industry, our product, sales cycle, and direct competitors
    • Developing cold calling stamina and becoming a hunter; prospecting key decision makers and leads
    • Excelling in full life-cycle SMB and SaaS-selling techniques
    • Becoming an industry expert across several verticals, starting with the floral industry.
    • Maintaining active engagement with leads until they are qualified for demos
    • Partnering with our experienced Account Executives to help fill sales pipelines
    • Crushing monthly quotas and exceeding expectations
    • Conducting weekly one-on-one sessions with your Sales Manager to receive direct coaching and insight
    • Holding you and your team accountable as we strive to revolutionize an industry
    • Partner with marketing to build creative outreach campaigns - you can reap the benefits of your own ideas!

What's in it for you:

    • Plenty of room for growth. We ONLY promote from within!
    • Equity/Stock options in a profitable and rapidly growing company
    • Great Medical/Dental/Vision coverage
    • Generous PTO and Sick-Time Policy. Use it - sales is a mental sport and you need to recharge!
    • Transportation coverage in the form of parking, ride-share, or metro credit
    • Fully stocked snack bar & weekly catered lunches
    • Company provided gear & swag (MacBook Pro, t-shirt, sunglasses, etc.)
    • Ability to mold your career and make an immediate impact to the company
    • Work in a fast-paced, fun environment with an eclectic group of people from all over the world

You will excel if you are:

    • A quick problem-solver with an ability to think on your toes
    • Inquisitive and curious by nature
    • Tech-savvy with a knack for explaining technology to others
    • A strong communicator with uncanny organizational and time management skills (efficiency is key)
    • Able to thrive in a fast-paced environment and “do what it takes” startup culture
    • Eager to learn and the definition of "coachable"
    • Great at building rapport and establishing relationships
    • Hungry and possess a high need for a competition and achievement
    • Sales experience is always a plus but certainly not required. It’s the right drive and mentality that counts!

Tracy

Implementation Manager

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

People are genuinely invested in each others success and my peers and superiors share their expertise with me to make sure that we're all successful. The organizational structure is extremely flat - this intentional lack of egos helps the whole team drive towards a collective goal all the while genuinely having fun and improving at the same time.
