Direct Sales Representative
Do you love small businesses? Do you want to see our Main Street communities rebound and flourish after we have defeated the coronavirus? Are you a proven salesperson with a track record of success?
Honeycomb Credit is hiring a Direct Sales Representative to conduct remote outbound sales to bring awesome small businesses to our platform.
Honeycomb Credit is a Pittsburgh-based loan crowdfunding website. that unlocks fair loans for small businesses by allowing them to borrow directly from their own loyal customers and community members. We’re filling the funding gap left due to banks not lending to small businesses while turning customers into superfans who are invested in the success of small businesses that they know and love.
At Honeycomb, we believe that small businesses are the lifeblood of our communities - they make our neighborhoods safe, fun, and livable - and we are passionate about helping them succeed. We have already helped more than 50 businesses, deploying over $1 million in fair loans, and we are only getting started.
As the Direct Sales Representative you will:
Develop targeted lead lists of highly qualified Main Street small businesses
Proactively reach out to small business owners over the phone and through email to build a network of potential clients and partners
Close deals and support our customer success team with client onboarding
Build partnerships with small business suppliers and advisors to create scalable sales and marketing channels to reach growing small businesses
We are looking for highly self-motivated applicants who are organized, proactive, and excited about scaling a high growth startup. Applicants should be comfortable working independently while maintaining close ties with their sales team as well as the operations and customer success teams in Pittsburgh.
The Direct Sales Representative should have 1-3 years of both inbound and outbound sales experience, preferably working directly with small business clients. Compensation will include a base salary and commission, commensurate with experience as well as a competitive stock option package in a scaling startup. We are accepting applications from candidates based anywhere in the United States, but preference will be given to candidates in our core markets of Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Baltimore, or Detroit.
To apply, please submit your resume and a brief cover letter highlighting two small businesses that you think would be a good fit for Honeycomb Credit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
