Sales Development Representative

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 person looking to launch a sales career. SDRs will develop their sales skills to speak with executives from thousands of companies to learn about their internal recruiting process, in order to qualify leads for our Account Executives and contribute to a high-performing sales operation machine.

Lever solves the #1 challenge for every CEO: hiring. Recruiting is a hot market, growing 12-15% y/y on its own, and Applicant Tracking Systems like Lever are in high demand. At the same time, hiring has never been more competitive and costly, making talent solutions that improve a company’s hiring ROI incredibly valuable. We’ve already attracted an elite roster of customers including Quora, Lyft, Foursquare, Jawbone, ClearSlide, Reddit, and GitHub.

Lever is the only hiring software that is mobilizing the entire company to collaborate on hiring. We’re the only solution designed to engage managers, who are incredibly crucial stakeholders, more deeply in the process. By supporting 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’re building a world-class sales organization and assembling an ambitious, supportive team to begin scaling aggressively. Be a part of the founding team, and bring your intense work ethic along with the desire to make an immediate impact. This is an opportunity for someone who wants to be part of something big and transformative, not just a job for someone looking for a typical sales opportunity. You’ll see professional development in several dimensions, including a strong network to successful sales executives, and the ability to own your career path.
