Head of Sales Enablement

THE CHALLENGE
Lever solves the #1 challenge for every company: hiring top talent. Recruiting is a hot market, growing 12-15% y/y on its own, and Applicant Tracking Systems like Lever are in high demand. We’ve already attracted an elite roster of customers including Netflix, Lyft, Foursquare, Reddit and Eventbrite, and we’re just getting started.

Lever is the only hiring software that is mobilizing the entire company to collaborate on hiring. Built on the technology that allows real-time collaboration in the Google Suite (our Co-Founder developed the technology, after all), we can support a true partnership between recruiters and managers. We’re able to make hiring faster, higher-quality, and more embedded into a company’s core culture.

We just closed our Series C, bringing our total funding to $70M, and now need to scale our sales team to keep up with demand. We’re looking for our head of sales enablement to help develop our quickly growing team of highly motivated Sales Development Representatives and Account Executives. This will be the first hire within our sales enablement org and you will partner directly with our SVP of Sales as well as Director of Sales Development. This role will allow you the space to creatively build a repeatable training playbook for onboarding new sales representatives as well as more established reps. You will own enablement and will collaborate with Lever's other departments including Product, Marketing and Customer Success to help reps be as productive and successful as possible.
