You’ll help them navigate an important onboarding process, demonstrating sophisticated customer success skills. As a Sales Development Representative, you will help us shape the entire sales development process. You’ll also be the first person to chat with potential, inbound customers, so we’re looking for a strong communicator who demonstrates a natural instinct for sales, initiative, resourcefulness, and a thirst for excellence.

Our team of over a hundred sales professionals includes folks practices across all channels and with different types of customers, but we all share deep passion and commitment to solutions selling: our company exists to solve problems for small businesses, and our sales team is a vital front door for small businesses who need and love our solutions. We have communal goals, a team spirit, and company leadership that cares about selling the right way.

  • SDR schedule is 8:30am MT – 5pm MT
  • Qualify, and schedule demos for potential Gusto customers
  • Follow up with a high volume of leads within 30 minutes.
  • Field inbound emails and dials from leads (Our current team averages ~10 emails/day 65 dials/day)
  • Document various details like customer profiles, responses, and next steps
  • Actively listen to understand what customers need and confidently communicating Gusto’s value proposition
  • Prioritize opportunities and apply appropriate resources
  • Research, develop, and implement sales strategies and tactics to drive more demos

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • Track record of success and over-achievement (in work or school based setting)
  • Experience using a CRM to track progress is a plus (we use Salesforce)
  • Ambitious, enthusiastic, tenacious, and full of win
  • A consummate team player who enjoys wearing multiple hats and inspiring everyone around you to do great work
  • Technically proficient and experienced with web technologies (able to present pros/cons, use cases/examples, trends, and all that good stuff)
  • Cold-calling experience is a plus
  • Great at communicating on the phone, over email, and in person

Our cash compensation amount for this role is targeted between $47,000 – $50,000 in Denver and most remote locations.  Final offer amounts are determined by multiple factors including candidate location, experience and expertise and may vary from the amounts listed above.

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Gusto.
