JOB DESCRIPTION

APPLY
Do you feel you have gone as far as you can with your current company Do you not get the support and the resources you need to be at the top of your game Are you underappreciated, under compensated and looking for a job with a ton of earning potential If so, you should probably continue reading.

The job found below is NOT for everybody. It requires someone who thinks out of the box and is willing to WORK, and WORK hard!

The ideal candidate is someone who's self-motivated, outgoing and comes into work with a go-getter attitude. They'll show up early and leave late, not because we require it, but because they know they'll be better off because of it. We're looking for those that are hungry and someone who views us as a partner rather than just a paycheck.

Optamark graphics isn't your normal printing company. We've done things different since we opened in 2011, and our ability to predict and adapt quickly to market trends has enabled us to grow as rapidly as we have. We are currently #223 on the Inc. 500 list of fastest growing companies.

What we do is simple... We build web based systems that help to streamline the ordering of both printed collateral and promotional products. Basically, we make it easier for the purchasers of these products to obtain quotes, track order history or customize the content needed for a particular project. Along with that, we also save them a lot of money on the products they've been ordering! Once in front of the clients, it is an easy sell.

Unlike othersales jobs that require you to find your own leads, we handle that! We want our salesforce to be out there selling, not qualifying leads over the phone. The backend support you'll receive is something that just isn't comparable at other companies and it helps to ensure you're freed up to sell, and continue selling
