We’re expanding a team of driven, focused, smart people who want to make a meaningful impact on the success of world-class software organizations. To us, sales isn’t pitching a vision, closing a decision maker, then handing them a product; it’s providing an amazing experience centered around helping a prospect try and evaluate our product. Often, teams purchase our product without realizing their Appcues representative is in sales.
This is an opportunity to accelerate growth on a winning team. In this role, you will be responsible for generating 500k-600k in ARR per year. Each month, you'll work on 40-60 inbound trial signups, create 22-30 opportunities from those signups, work an additional 3-6 opportunities created by our BDR team, and close 6-15 deals. You will take our trialers on a journey from discovering if Appcues can help them achieve their goals, to assisting them in testing and configuring our software, to finally, helping them reach their trial limits and purchase. The first-class experience you provide will meaningfully impact our brand perception and lead us to win in competitive situations.
Apply if you’re passionate about being a part of a great team, delivering an exceptional sales experience, and contributing to the growth of a business that is growing rapidly
