Sales – Account Executives /
Our success is reliant on building teams that include people from different backgrounds and experiences who can elevate assumptions and ideas with fresh perspectives. We're dedicated to hiring the whole human, not just a resume. To that end, we look for a diverse pool of applicants-including those from historically marginalized groups. We would like to invite you to apply even if you don't think you meet all of the requirements listed below. We don't want a few lines in a job description to get between us and the opportunity to meet you.
About the Team
Our Commercial Account Executive team is responsible for managing the deal cycles from generation to close for our new customers in our Commercial space (501-1500 Employees).
At Outreach, we win as a team and you will find that the team is well resourced with access to cross functional teams such as SDR’s and Solutions Consultants who are on deck to help the Commercial AE team be successful. You will also have a hands-on leader who maintains a manageable, AE to Manager ratio which will allow them to be present in your day to day and provide prescribed coaching so that you have the highest likelihood of success within your role.
The Commercial AE team focuses on value selling to ensure we’re building an effective business case throughout the sales process that demonstrates an undeniable ROI. You’ll also be trained on MEDDPIC which Outreach uses to ensure each AE has enough qualified pipeline to achieve quota.
This team is one of the most successful sales teams at Outreach and sellers with a pattern of success will appreciate the team's openness in sharing winning ideas and learning new ones from others with the intention of achieving sales targets.
As a Commercial Account Executive, you will be the CEO of your own business and responsible for overseeing a successful territory plan in a specific sales geo-territory.
