Sales Representative (Remote - TX)
The Zebra, named a Best Place to Work in Austin four years running, is revolutionizing how connected consumers research and shop for insurance. We intentionally strive to build diverse teams that feel inclusive for all. Our motto is "All Stripes Welcome," and we put that into practice by valuing both traditional and non-conventional backgrounds and perspectives. Our Zeebs are passionate about learning, growing, & working together to tackle exciting problems.
The Zebra is looking for hard-working, motivated professionals to join our lively call center and tight-knit team. You’ll be the first point of contact for our customers shopping for insurance on the nation’s leading insurance comparison site. Your role will be to turn insurance shoppers into long-term customers and brand champions of The Zebra.
We have two available positions based on your experience. One is a voice insurance sales agent and the other is a chat insurance sales agent.
This is a full-time 40 hours/week position.
Working hours are 7:00AM - 9:00PM Monday - Friday, 9:00AM - 5:30PM on Saturdays (and we have Sundays off)! With our growing Agency, hours are always subject to change.
Our agents start off 100% remote. Every licensed employee must conduct business from their primary residence in Texas. All new hires will need to relocate to Texas by the time of their start date.
Our sales agents are hourly, but usually make between $45k-60k annually in their first year (but with base rates and an uncapped incentive structure, some of our senior agents hit $85K+)!
You will receive an incentive guarantee from day one (1) of employment until you are incentive eligible. There are also overtime opportunities available.
What You'll Do:
- Answer inbound sales calls or digital sales live chats from customers who need assistance with purchasing various insurance products
- Quote and sell through multiple insurance carriers and quoting platforms
- Cross-sell customers to meet all of their insurance needs
- Maintain a high level of production while providing professional service in a fast paced sales environment
- Opportunities to learn and grow
What We're Looking For:
- One year of high-volume sales experience and a motivated, positive, and solution-oriented attitude is required!
- Adaptability: You thrive in a fast-paced flexible environment and love talking with people. Think call-center!
- Coach-ability: You take feedback well and implement it as needed to improve your approaches
- Communication: You are clear and concise with verbal and written communication
- Value self-awareness, intellectual integrity, judgment, emotional intelligence
Experience that Will Impress the Heck Out of Us
- You already have a TX (General Lines) Property & Casualty
- You bring experience working within insurance sales
