What you'll get up to:

  • Build value throughout the sales funnel

  • Manage a pipeline of leads and opportunities, and follow up as needed to optimize for conversion
  • Act as a Mentor to our SDR's through coaching and development by means of call shadowing, training sessions, mock calls, and ad-hoc feedback sessions
  • Bill clients and take clear, detailed notes in the CRM (salesforce) about the client, their needs, and what was billed
  • Meet and exceed all conversion and revenue targets

What you'll need:

  • 1.5
  • years of experience as a Sales Development Rep or other related sales role, with a proven track record of high performance

  • Ability to confidently use and leverage all softwares in your day-to-day workflow (Salesforce, Salesloft, Slack, Ring Central, G Suite, etc)
  • Understanding of individual and team targets and the various levers to achieve these goals
  • You're comfortable sharing your knowledge and are consistently working to help other team members level up and develop their sales-related skills
  • You're someone who can take feedback well and immediately action it
  • Accountability for consistently managing your pipeline and performance and ability to problem solve and prioritize your workload in relation to your role and mentor others

It could be an even better fit if you:

  • 6 months in a closing role, preferably in a SaaS Sales environment

What you'll get:

  • At Bench, we share information freely and openly whenever possible. All Account Executives joining the team will start with on-target earnings (OTE) of $79,000; most reps are outperforming these on-target earnings.
  • A component of these earnings is made up of variable pay which is uncapped. This means that there is no limit to your performance and thus your earnings. At this time, most of our reps are holding 132% relative to OTE.
  • In addition, we offer an extended benefits package that includes paid vacation, unlimited paid flex days, and full health, dental, and vision.
  • You'll get unlimited access to Bravely, our confidential, on-demand, 1:1 professional coaching service, and access to Inkblot Therapy, our virtual counselling service to support mental wellbeing.
  • You will have the support of your manager, and the opportunity to learn and develop by working with a team of unconventional & diverse Benchmates, who are all working together to achieve the same mission.
  • We have a number of Affinity Groups - groups of people who have shared identities and experiences! The purpose of these groups is to support underrepresented Benchmates and amplify their voices.
  • This role is for one of three teams who, by design, function better together in person. We are currently focusing our hiring efforts in the Vancouver lower mainland and you will get the opportunity to be involved in the trial of a coworking space designed for the Sales team. We will test, learn and iterate together!
  • You'll also have access to our Home Office Setup Fund to ensure that you have everything you need to work comfortably from home, when you are not in the office, from day one.

Everyone has their own unique talents. Even if you don't meet 100% of the qualifications outlined above, tell us why you'd be a great fit for this role in your application.

We believe that unchecked biases disproportionately impact the most marginalized people in society-including but not limited to BIPOC, LGBTQ2S+ people, immigrants, and people with disabilities. We strongly encourage applications from people with these identities or other marginalized communities because we believe that without you, we are all less. At Bench, we don't stand for tokenism. We stand for representation.
