We're building the next generation of hiring software that companies like Netflix, Yelp, Cirque du Soleil, Shopify, and Eventbrite rely on to grow their teams.

We've rethought the talent acquisition paradigm and are the innovation leaders in our space.

We are hiring results-oriented Account Executives with experience selling a premium solution and a closing record to help us set, drive, and execute on our revenue goals.

You Bring:

  • 2+ years of closing experience, preferably at a SaaS technology company (bonus points for selling in the HR tech space)
  • Ability to manage a multi-threaded sales process and competitive deals
  • Experience with consultative, value-based selling
  • Proven track record of exceeding your quota
  • Tech savvy: you’ll master the Lever product, know the features inside and out, understand the industry, and be able to articulate Lever’s value to recruiters, VPs and CEOs alike
