Great! What will I do as a Sales Lead?

Trellis started 12 months ago and in that time we have learned about our customer, built out an MVP, launched a successful test of the product and are now gearing up for our full product launch come April 3rd.

Your role is to take the lead in developing a predictable revenue engine with help from the CEO and Customer Success Manager. The goal is for you to grow into and manage the sales for Trellis. You will start by developing the top of the funnel as an SDR, with the  CEO acting as the account manager and we have a customer success lead to nurture our clients. Once we’ve created and validated your role, we will hire an SDR and move you into an account executive/manager role.

We are looking for an individual that:
  • Is entrepreneurial and doesn’t mind wearing many hats

  • Converting qualified leads and introducing them to Account Executives

  • Analyzing their performance and personalizing their process

  • Working closely with the sales team to improve the sales process

  • Following  up and nurturing prospects until they are ready to engage with Account Executives

Culture and Compensation

Our culture fit boils down to two things:

  1. Purpose - We want our team to have a purpose that is driving them first, before profit.

  2. Startup - We are a lean team; we believe in iteration, validation, continual learning, and FUN.

Compensation will be competitive and have a built in commission program. Employee Stock Options will be available as well.
