At Bazaarvoice, we create smart shopping experiences. Through our expansive global network, product-passionate community & enterprise technology, we connect thousands of brands and retailers with billions of consumers. Our solutions enable brands to connect with consumers and collect valuable user-generated content, at an unprecedented scale. This content achieves global reach by leveraging our extensive and ever-expanding retail, social & search syndication network. And we make it easy for brands & retailers to gain valuable business insights from real-time consumer feedback with intuitive tools and dashboards. The result is smarter shopping: loyal customers, increased sales, and improved products.
The problem we are trying to solve : Brands and retailers struggle to make real connections with consumers. It's a challenge to deliver trustworthy and inspiring content in the moments that matter most during the discovery and purchase cycle. The result? Time and money spent on content that doesn't attract new consumers, convert them, or earn their long-term loyalty.
Our brand promise : closing the gap between brands and consumers.
Founded in 2005, Bazaarvoice is headquartered in Austin, Texas with offices in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.
This is a perfect step for those who want to embrace a sales career.
Our Sales Development Representatives (SDR) at Bazaarvoice are the engine that helps to drive the business forward. Each team member is highly skilled in unearthing new business opportunities to deploy Bazaarvoice solutions for new clients. The way in which this is achieved is by building solid and trusted relationships with senior personnel within target organisations. The methods behind this vary from contact over the phone, email, events, acting on marketing campaigns and generally keeping abreast of all things social within current and target organisations.
In your first 90 days, you will learn about Bazaarvoice inside out, as well as learning proven sales methodologies that will equip you well in the role. Future projection in development and progression of this role based on successes and achievements will lead to you becoming an Inside Sales Rep and then into an Account Executive.
