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

    We are a B2B software as a service tool that helps people schedule content on social media.

    We are looking for someone to lead our more specialised SEO efforts internally, on a full or part time (at least 2 days a week) basis, with an initial 3-month contract.

    What we're looking for

    We are looking for someone who:

    • Lives their day inside Ahrefs/SEMrush/Clearscope etc

    • Loves to take a very technical and metrics-focussed approach to SEO

    • Wants to take on a challenge, with competitive keywords

    • Can lead the efforts internally from strategy to execution.

    • Has experience in the B2B SaaS space, ideally in a marketing focussed tool.

    • We would like to find someone who is willing to get their hands dirty and can manage the SEO process end-to-end so that you can keep the feedback loops fast.

    • When/if you run out of time to DIY, we can talk about adding extra people or contractors to be able to free up your time, but for us it's important that you aren't afraid to get your hands dirty and that you have recent experience "doing the work", not just setting strategy.

    • You will need to have at least 2-3 hours overlap in working hours (8am-6pm) of Melbourne, Australia time, but otherwise our team is fully remote distributed around the world.

    What you'll work on

    • Your first 1-2 weeks will be focussed on auditing our existing activities and identifying what the quick wins might be for the best keywords to generate revenue.

    • Then you'll work on implementing your thoughts alongside our team, with a focus on a keyword list of 10-20 high quality and high intent keywords you have researched that you think will create the best ROI for us.

    • You'll regularly report on progress as we climb up the SERPs, and likely contribute to various other campaigns and projects our team works on.

    We're pricing this role at US$55-60k per annum (pro-rata if you work part time) – we also have a profit share program, paid time off and more.
