Our team-based, client-centric approach has fueled our growth over the last 20+ years, and we’re now 250 teammates strong and growing, serving more than 4,000 clients, and advising on over $19 billion+ in assets. Every teammate has a path to ownership in the firm. We're looking for driven individuals who bring a "How can I help?" attitude to their work and are passionate about contributing to and celebrating the success of both clients and colleagues. Join our #OneTeam and be part of an industry leader committed to creating an incredible culture where every teammate can thrive.

We’re adding a talented B2B sales expert who is motivated to sell Brighton Jones’s Retirement Plan Advisory Services to companies and organizations.

Who is our ideal candidate? A savvy hunter who comes from a background in retirement plan, payroll, finance, benefits, or other high-level business to business sales. A motivated, proven salesperson who sees the big picture and understands what it takes to prospect, drive the sales process, and be an individual contributor. You work directly with CFOs, COOs, Presidents, and VPs of HR and understand the sophisticated, sometimes complex, nature of the sales process and sales cycle. Above all else, you believe in collaboration and team selling.
