JOB DESCRIPTIONAPPLY Sure, you're a sales rockstar, but what really lights your fire If it's an opportunity to geek out and talk about digital/design trends, or if it's the satisfaction of radically changing someone's life for the better, then we need to talk.
As an organization, we have posted double-digit growth year-over-year since our inception, and your mission as a salesperson will be to help us continue that streak. While it looks good as a number, it looks even better in terms of the opportunities it has created for our talent to find g reat new jobs!

Be part of a smart, fun team that crushes its goals
Establish your personal brand within the Portland digital community - with the support of a team and company that gives you a valuable service to deliver
You'll work on a tight-knit, geographically-focused team comprised of 2-3 other salespeople and 3-4 agents who will partner with you on order fulfillment. Because we sink or swim as a team, it's important that you enjoy collaboration. We like to crush our goals, but we value holism over competition, and pride ourselves on helping each other succeed.
The best people bring their own network, are fearless about cold calling, are able to achieve a high volume of activity week after week, are resourceful finding new prospects, are effective in developing systems for repeat follow-up without complaining about tools or technology, and establish strong working partnerships with our agents.
