The Role

We’re looking for a dynamic, high-performing Sales Development Representative with outbound experience identifying and building new customer enrollments over the phone, by email, and via web-based presentations. This role will be responsible for prospecting and generating commercial contractor enrollments for Billd's material financing product. The ideal candidate has a history of helping customers enroll for a new service or product, exceeding quotas, and loves the challenges of positioning a new product into the market. To be successful in this role, you should have previous experience (1) developing and managing leads from various marketing campaigns, (2) communicating outwardly the value of a financial, construction, or technology product and, (3) familiarity working with technology sales tools (Salesforce, Slack, Intercom, Outreach, etc.).

To be successful in the Billd sales organization, you need to be a killer. For you, failure isn’t an option. This means you are willing to do whatever it takes for the customer, for your team, and for your development. As an individual, you’re constantly pushing yourself to be better than you were yesterday. You’re running a one-person race to outperform yourself and you’re gunning to outperform those around you. You’re constantly investing in yourself, being intentional with your time, and doing the right thing. You’re here to crush your quota, to level up your sales skills, and, more than anything, you’re here to win.
