Market Development Representative

Exciting news from Lever HQ! We just closed our Series C round of funding, and are looking for great people to help us scale to meet demand.

Get in on the ground floor of a top startup, while representing a product that you can personally get behind. We’re looking for a smart and competitive teammate looking to launch a sales career.  As our first-ever Market Development Representative, you will develop your sales skills to speak with executives from thousands of companies globally to learn about their internal recruiting process, and play a key role in scaling our high-performing demand generation and sales operation machine.
