Your mission at Whereby*
To build, scale and manage a team of Sales Development Representatives at Whereby, with an overall mission to engage and qualify leads and create a healthy pipeline for our Account Executives.
*This is the mission that moves you and your team through our strategic roadmap, and should be your focus for up to a year or two.
What is Whereby all about
Freedom to work from anywhere: our mission with Whereby is to give people freedom to live and work where they thrive.
📍 Our global HQ is in Oslo, Norway, but our users (and team) are worldwide - having been used in nearly every country in the world by millions of folk. 🌏
By making it possible to collaborate as well over video as you can in real life, we want to give you the choice to work from where your life happens. To allow you to be in a place where you can think and focus, but also allow a seamless and instant connection with others when you need to.
For our 90 team members, and also for our customers, we know that the ability to decouple location from work can be life-changing. They can afford the house they want, can spend less time commuting, be closer to nature, and their children get to grow up seeing their grandparents every day. Everyone on our team enjoys the enormous benefits that a flexible work policy brings, and we truly believe the future of work will gravitate towards our vision of the future.
Sales at Whereby
Whereby is a fast-growing scale-up with a global user base of more than 5 million users per month and $8M+ ARR, on the verge becoming a mass-market product. We strongly believe in product led growth and the power of a passionate, hard working team. While Whereby has already seen more than 300% growth in 2020, we need more sales professionals to help us reach our goals. With a rapidly growing team, we now need dedicated managers to build sales teams together with our Director of Sales, Caleb. You will become part of a tightly knit team of highly passionate people who aim to create the best possible user experience. We are not afraid of challenging the status quo and aim for radical simplicity in everything we do. Whereby has been ranked by business users as the #1 easiest-to-use video conferencing tool, ahead of competitors like Zoom, Google Meet and Skype.
