As a Government Sales Associate you will be selling our customized cloud-based government software suite to local governments around the world. SeeClickFix sees signs that the market for social and open communication systems between citizens and their governments is growing rapidly. SeeClickFix continues to be the only company filling this market in a way that truly meets all of the feature demands from both citizens and governments. Amongst the products you will be selling are customized smart phone applications and facebook applications that allow citizens to report problems in their communities as well as tools for tracking those requests. Check out our website or smartphone apps for examples of what we do best and also http://www.seeclickfix.com/government to learn a bit about our software.
This position is for full-time employment, on-site at our office in downtown New Haven, CT. You will join a team that has more than doubled in size over the last year to 11 full-time employees.
What We're Looking For
The right person for the job will have a few years experience in sales. We are more interested in a record of top performance in your industry than your experience selling cloud based software to government, but the later is definitely a plus. While you don't have to have worked at a start-up previously you need to be prepared to work at a start-up. What does this mean? Start-up culture and SeeClickFix culture is one of dedication to the community over everything else. You must be prepared to carry weight for others and take on tasks outside of your typical responsibilities when needed. You need to be ready to be as important to the organization as the founders. SeeClickFix's hierarchy is flat and everyone in the office is part of the decision making process. Sales Associates are involved in conversations about features and have a say in matters related to the platform.
Most importantly we want you be really really ridiculously smart and fun. We also really want you to care about civic engagement, stronger neighborhoods and more efficient governments and be willing to make the cold calls, emails and even show up at a door to enable this through the sale of our software. The ideal Sales Associate will:
Aggressive and self motivated. A real bulldog when it comes to making cold calls, arranging in person meetings and sending cold emails.
Well spoken and confident.
Interest in free and paid cloud software either in personal or professional use
A high performing track record in a previous sales role
A sense of humor in the office and with our clients
