Expel

Sales Development Representative

3+ months agoReston, VA

First impressions count. But you know that ... because you create them every day. 

At Expel, we've got our eye on the long game. And it starts with you. Our customers need to be able to trust us, and that begins the second you get them on the phone or hook them with your email. Our promise to them: we do what we say, and they will love what we do. We don't use jargon, replay tired phrases to describe ourselves or negotiate like we're trying to sell them a bridge. We want our customers to not only love our product but feel good about how they get treated during every interaction with us.

We're a breath of fresh air in an enterprise information security market that's confusing, hostile and dominated by vendors focused on their widget instead of what customers actually want or need. Even if the timing isn't right, we believe we should still offer value because chances are they'll be a customer six or 12 months down the road.

Are you looking to build your career in sales at a company with a product customers actually rave about? How does working on a newly defined mid-market team sound? If you're passionate about growing your sales skills, looking for a high impact role, and intrigued by the chance to work somewhere that gives you tools and training to do it in new ways we should talk! 

In this role, you’ll be working closely with marketing and senior account executives so you’ll gain a complete appreciation for what it takes to attract, engage, qualify and ... ultimately close new business.

Interested? We’d love to hear from you!
