Job type: Full-time

Category: Marketing / Sales


We’re a startup based out of Waterloo, Canada building a smart, curious, and driven team that’s passionate about making software that helps sales reps sell better.

Prospect is a lead generation platform that intelligently sources contact data right inside of your web browser in real-time. The best sales teams from the top tech companies in the world use Prospect to crush their sales target


MORE ABOUT US

We’re currently a team of 10 people -- you will be #11.

We are profitable and self-funded (no VCs or investors). We did this because we want to do what’s best for our team and customers (not investors).

We have sane working hours; we don’t work weekends, take ample time off, and work ~8 hours a day.

ABOUT YOU

You genuinely enjoy helping, talking to, and being around people. You realize that sales is about building long-lasting relationships that can only come with authenticity.

You focus on quality over quantity. You believe that it is better to spend the whole day writing ten high quality cold emails versus one hundred cookie cutter emails.

You’re calm and collected. You don’t let your quotas stress you out but rather serve as a compass for self-development and achieving success in the role.

You are extremely creative. You realize that your prospects are already getting bombarded with cold emails and phone calls and you look for ways to stand out from the crowd.

You sell with heart. You realize that the foundation of sales is built upon you genuinely believing in your product and wanting customers to benefit from it.

You don’t make excuses. You realize that there will always be objections and you get a thrill from dealing with them.

You are always learning. You believe that the only way to grow is to independent and always be learning.


OUR SALES PROCESS RIGHT NOW

Every customer we have today was sourced using our own product (Prospect) or via word-of-mouth.

Any new sales are done by our CEO right now. We have a Customer Success Manager as well who handles all existing accounts, renewals, and upgrades.


WHAT YOU WILL DO

You will be the first SDR on the team. With this you will have a lot of responsibility, autonomy, and will be working very closely with the CEO.


At a high level, a typical day consists of you:

1. Using Prospect to find new leads

2. Sending cold emails and making cold calls

3. Scheduling demos


During this process, it is expected that you will:

Manage and maintain a very organized outbound pipeline in Salesforce

Always be optimizing and refining your outreach by focusing on quality over quantity

Be on the lookout for new techniques and tools to improve your outreach processes


WHERE THIS ROLE WILL TAKE YOU


This is a very unique role as you will get the benefits of working at a startup and selling a product that’s already loved by thousands of sales professionals around the world.


If you are successful in this role, we plan to transition you into a “full stack” sales rep where you’ll do demos and close deals and still hustle as an SDR to source your own leads.


MUST HAVES

1+ years of SaaS sales experience

Desire to work at a startup and have a high degree of responsibility

An entrepreneur at heart; hunger, hustle, and persistence

Strong passion for selling and ability to communicate a product’s value

History of achievement in both work and personal life

The ability to write succinct, thoughtful, and highly personalized emails

BONUS POINTS FOR

Experience using Prospect :)

Experience selling SaaS software in a startup environment

Experience with outbound emailing and calling software (ie. Outreach.io, SalesLoft, Yesware)

A proven record of success in a previous SDR/BDR role

Proficiency with Salesforce


COMPENSATION AND PERKS


Salary: $80,000/year Canadian Dollars (OTE; $40,000 base, $40,000 commission)

Work remotely or from our office in Kitchener-Waterloo -- your choice!

Four weeks paid time off

Travel spending allowance (money to spend during your vacation)

Benefits (Health, Dental, etc) through our company HSA

Catered lunches every day and snacks at the office

Laptop of your choice

  • Customer.io (Remote)
    1 week ago

    Hi, I’m Brian, Director of Product at Customer.io,

    I’m looking for a Product Manager to join our team who gets excited about how product experiences continue beyond a company's web or mobile app. Every message, delivery, notification, and ad is part of a customer's product experience. I need you to come help us build the platform that enables those connected experiences.

    Our product development is done by squads: small groups of engineers, designers, and a product manager like you, focused on solving a customer problem. You’ll lead one of these squads and own major parts of our roadmap. From conception to far past delivery you'll stay close with our customers to understand the impact of your work.

    We will be accepting applications until June 2nd. There is no advantage to applying early, so take the time to put your best foot forward. Including a product portfolio is encouraged.


    About Customer.io

    At Customer.io we believe that businesses who create strong relationships with their customers will outperform the ones that don’t.

    We’re working to make Customer.io the default choice for any internet business to deliver great, automated customer experiences at scale. Customer.io is used by over 1200 businesses to create continuity after a person leaves a website or mobile app. Every message (receipts, win-backs, and onboarding) across every channel (email, push, sms and more) can be managed and measured in Customer.io.

    The work you do here will raise the bar for the everyday communications we all receive. It drives us crazy when we get useless emails and notifications that feel like spam from companies we admire. Our customers are marketers, growth hackers, and engineers who are dreaming up ideas for how to be genuine and personal in their messages to customers.


    What will you be doing?

    Collecting and analyzing tons of feedback from a variety of sources and identifying underlying user problems

    Pitching solutions to those user problems in close collaboration with designers and engineers

    Driving those solutions to production while keeping scope in check and validating progress with customers

    Partnering with marketing, sales, and support to implement anything needed (docs, blogs, presentations, etc) to ensure customers get value from features we ship

    Defining success metrics for features, reporting results after shipping, and proposing future iterations


    You’ll join a team of 6, including:

    Brian (that's me!), our Director of Product, to define a roadmap that balances customer problems, our strengths, and our market position.

    Kate and Brendan: your Product Management crew. You'll learn from them, teach them, and push each other to do the best work you've ever done.

    Ivana, Madeline, and Richard: 3 exceptional Product Designers. We set a high standard for the user experiences we create and the way they affect our customer's lives.

    An engineering team who is passionate about the product. They’ll help you get the details right and ensure it’s going to scale flawlessly.

    Colleagues in data, marketing, sales, and customer support. We’re a tight-knit company where you’ll get a stream of customer insight from a team who genuinely cares about giving our customers messaging superpowers.


    What will you bring to the table?

    You’ve seen what happens when a team gets aligned around the customer’s experience and are on a mission to help every team you work with achieve that understanding.

    Your north star is creating moments where customers hire your feature for their job to be done. Thousands of little things must to go right to produce those moments. To some it feels miraculous that everything lined up, but you know it’s no accident.

    You’re hungry to learn, and you love to ask “Why?” one more time. Whether it’s uncovering the true motivation of a customer or the root cause of a disagreement about priorities, you’re always curious and seeking to identify the piece that completes the puzzle.

    You’re an exceptionally organized and motivated person. You know what pieces need to come together to successfully run a software development process and make it your mission to help everyone around you keep focused and excited about the end goal.

    You take ownership of problems even when the next steps and solutions aren't yet clear. You’re looking to work with a startup where you’ll have a lot of freedom and be responsible for the impact you make. Working with folks in different timezones will be standard issue for you around here, so being able to stay determined, even when the answers aren’t in front of you, is essential.

    You are a proactive communicator. You strive to be articulate and empathetic in your interactions and believe in “working out loud” to share work early and helpfully. You’re an excellent written communicator who values clarity and brevity while avoiding jargon.


    Bonus! Not a requirement, but shout about it if you have experience with...

    Experience working on Marketing Tech or Ad Tech SaaS produts

    Using Customer.io or other marketing automation services in a previous role


    Why should you work with Customer.io?

    We're in a special moment as a company: small enough where you'll have a big impact as an individual, big enough to have resources to conquer ambitious goals as a team, yet calm about how we set growth goals.

    We are offering a starting salary between $90,000 - 110,000 USD depending on experience. Check out our career's page for more information on our great benefits and why you should come work with us!


    Diversity statement

    We want to build and maintain a diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment where everyone has the opportunity to learn, mentor, and grow. We know that diverse teams make better products, and especially encourage applicants from underrepresented groups to apply — if you have any questions, please let us know via Twitter. We don’t want “culture fit”, but “culture add.” We want people with different backgrounds from the team we have today to bring their perspective and thoughtfulness to the work that we do and the culture we’re always working to build.


    Come join us!

    Apply below and be sure to add a prominent reference to a pigeon to your cover letter or portfolio. You'll just have to trust me: this is important, yet not serious at all.

    Aside from letting you know we received your application, we won't be in touch till after the June 2nd deadline. After that, we'll be in touch regularly to keep you informed about our progress.
