Software Advice, Inside Sales: Software Analyst, Application Deadline, BTT Gateway Job ID 8518

Wed, May 28, 2014

Fast track your career by joining a quickly-growing company that's kickin' butt at the intersection of the Web, technology, and sales. 

We're looking for someone who: 
- Learns quickly. You don't need to be a software expert to work here, but you do need to be intellectually curious and genuinely interested in tech stuff. 
- Is competitive. You are driven to be the best. You challenge yourself by setting goals, crushing them, and helping your teammates do the same. 
- Works efficiently. You're a master multi-tasker. You can talk, type, walk and chew gum all at the same time. 
- Has boundless energy. You can maintain the same level of intensity all day. You don't let rejection, long hours, or repetition drain you. 

What you'll do all day: 
- Make a lot of calls. There's no cold calling in this role, but most of the calls will be outbound. You need to come ready to call aggressively every day. 
- Advise software buyers. You'll find out about their needs and their budget so you can recommend systems that will meet those requirements. 
- Communicate companies' needs accurately. We want our software vendor clients to be able to pick up the conversation exactly where we left off. 

You'll be measured on how well you: 
- Hit the phones. We expect our software analysts to place a whole lot of calls each day. The more calls you make, the more successful you'll be. 
- Make great recommendations. We get paid for making great matches between software buyers and software vendors. Quality is crucial. 
- Find more buyers to advise. No one who requests a consultation should slip through the cracks. You'll follow up on older requests as well as new ones. 

A few reasons why you might hate it: 
- You're delicate. We gotta be honest, sometimes you'll get hung up on. Sometimes people might be less than cordial. It's just part of the job. 
- You just want to heal the world. What we do helps our buyers a lot, but we aren't solving the world's problems. You've gotta be pragmatic. 
- You live for the relationship building. This isn't account management. If you want to work with clients long term, you might be happier in another role. 

And a few reasons why you might love it: 
- You'll grow and learn a ton. You'll become a better business person as you immerse yourself in the world of technology and entrepreneurship. 
- The work environment is amazing. Our SoCo office is insanely cool, open, and inviting. We dress casually and have fun while working hard. 
- The team is even more amazing. You will work with people who are as energetic, smart, and driven as you are. You'll be managed by the best too. 
- Your success will be recognized and appreciated. You'll be able to see your direct impact on our growth. You won't be just another cog in the wheel.

Application Deadline 5/28. See BTT Gateway Job ID 8518
