Sales Development Representative
- Washington, DC
About the Position
Our Sales Development Representatives hustle. They understand the need for speed at a high growth technology startup, but they also recognize that brute force is not always the best strategy. Highly creative and intelligent, Sales Development Representatives carefully identify the value add of FiscalNote products to organizations and tactfully leverage all manners of communication to get our platform in front of potential users and purchasing decision makers. Our Sales Development Representatives interface with high level members of the policy and legal worlds, and they must conduct themselves with a level of intellectual aptitude far exceeding that of a generic SaaS sale.
